  • Summary: Live the life of a rally driver and prove your skills around the world. As part of the Ford Rally Sport Team, you'll have access to authentic high-performance rally cars, including Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 7, Subaru Impreza WRX, Citroen Saxo Kit Car, and Ford Focus RS WRC. It's a race against the clock through 56 stages from the United Kingdom to the United States. If you damage your car or the landscape, the path to the finish line will be a shaky one. Expand

  1. CMR3 without hesitation is the purest virtual representation of rally racing ever created and you should know that before going in.
  2. You won't find a better offroad racing simulation anywhere. [Jan 2003, p.194]
  3. Car models are practically flawless and the best we've ever seen in a driving sim. Enough races and challenges to keep you occupied for some time. Good AI. Topnotch physics.
  4. It would appear the true fans, a small niche of the general gaming population, will truly appreciate it. But when it comes to sheer variety, an easier learning curve and exotic game modes, I’d pop in something else other than Rally 3.
  5. I had a lot of fun with this game, I just wish I could have chosen a different car than the Escort.
  6. If you're looking for a flawlessly executed version of one of the coolest motor sports on earth, this is well worth checking out. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.85]

    Bad points aside, if you are looking for one of the most realistic racing games available.
