  1. It is by no means a replacement for any of the current high profile racers, and staunch simulation fans will surely laugh at the wonky physics and weak driver AI, but for the affordable budget price you really can't go wrong by snagging a copy of Ford Racing 3.
  2. Surprisingly fun and simple to pick up and play. The numerous game variants have a way of keeping the game fresh and the inclusion of Xbox Live support is wonderful to see from a budget game.
  3. Despite the license and some interesting gameplay modes, Ford Racing 3 comes off feeling generic and far less distinct than the real-life vehicles the game attempts to capture.
  4. The game surprisingly has some value this time around, particularly with the ability to race against others online and being able to use customized soundtracks during a race.

    If you were hoping that the Need for Speed series would ditch the underground in favor of some sunshine, Ford Racing 3 is your type of game. The outdoor environments are fun and memorable, and the events grow increasingly competitive as you rise in rank from an amateur to a pro.
  6. The tracks are nicely designed as well, but again, the effort seems fairly wasted due to the extremely dated graphics engine. [June 2005, p.86]

    Blech. Ford Racing 3 is not a travesty, but it's not any good either. The best thing that can be said about it is it's filled with 55 Fords. And if you like Fords…well, they're here for you.

    A little better than Ford Racing 2. Tracks and cars are pretty bland, good to waste a few hours with in preparation for Forza Motorsport, but A little better than Ford Racing 2. Tracks and cars are pretty bland, good to waste a few hours with in preparation for Forza Motorsport, but no substitute. Expand
