  1. TOCA 3 is like a brand new game, and the added features make the game even better than TOCA 2. One thing that doesn't look like it is going to go anywhere though, is those cardboard spectators.
  2. Every year Codemasters puts out a new version, and it's as sure a bet as anything in this industry that it will be even better than last year's--and that once again it will be mostly ignored by U.S. gamers. [Mar 2006, p.44]
  3. It's hard to think of anything else the guys at Codemasters could have crammed into the game, and the way they've managed to retain such a high level of quality throughout the whole experience really is extraordinary.

    Not only is the game filled with cars to race, car disciplines to pick from, and an enormous amount of replay value to enjoy, it also manages to healthily balance noobs and hardcore gamers.
  5. 85
    If there's one complaint it's the precision necessary to succeed in completing some of the championships.
  6. Improvements in the level of detail on offer from the damage modelling to the multi-layered audio, continue to present the game with ever greater realism, and no-one could ever accuse the developers of a lack of variety in the vehicles.
  7. 65
    As it stands, Race Driver 3 suffers from too much variety and not enough substance.

    Best racing game to date. I hope very much Codemasters takes over for Nascar.

    An excellent simulation game with very diverse vehicle options that requires you to adapt quickly to all the different environments. Some of the offroad modes could use a little polishing. Expand

    As much online fun as PGR or Moto GP, better than Forza and LOADS more tracks!
