This game is nothing like Need for Speed games its real racing

  • Summary: I read a Review on this game and someone wrote they didn't like it they're crazy! Here are some reasons to get it. 1 The guy not liking this game didn't like it because it's too real. This game was made for people who drive real cars not kids. It's not a game where you Mash the gas and steer and go 300 mph with unlimited NOS!! In real life you gas, brake, feather the throttle handbrake corners, use the weight of the car etc etc.. This game has it all!

I don't see why everyone is whining about this game

  • Summary: It is VERY realistic and challenging. If you want an arcade feel driving game, go play Gran Turismo 3. CMR 3 requires much more knowledge of how to make the car work in terms of tuning with the actual physics of the car. I like the damage too, and I like it how the car cannot be repaired until the end of the day (a couple stages later)- which is like the real WRC in that teams basically patch things up with safety wire and do very basic repairs between stages.

A realistic rally simulation

  • Summary: This game is very realistic when it comes to car physics, a feature which any real rally fans crave for, and a feature which World Rally Championship and V-Rally 3 sorely lacks. Graphics is good, but not great. It lacks a bit in game modes also. But the sense of speed and exhiliration is excellent. Those who gave this game a low mark definitely have their priority mixed up.

Great rally driving, despite a few misses.

  • Summary: After longing a great while for a truly great Rally game, Colin McRae Rally 3, comes very close. Gran Turismo was first to provide a really great rally experience, but was limited mostly to head-to-head racing on short little circuits. World Rally Championship provided the real WRC Rally racing experience, with accurate courses and proper timing, but lacked Gran Turismo's performance realism, and some environmental realism like varying surfaces and landmarks.

Simply Amazing!

  • Summary: I was a little dissapointed that the Subaru WRC wasn't available in the championship mode but when you start winning races with the Ford Focus you unlock the numerous stages in the game which are quite unique and fun to drive with any car you want including the Subaru WRC.

Fun game but a bit hard

  • Excerpt: "The first time I played this game I found it extremely hard, i suppose it depends how much experience you have of rally games. Personally this was the first one I had bought so it took a while to get used to the handling of the controls and vehicles. Once i had settled into it, I found it to be extremely enjoyable. The graphics are stunning, with the first stages set in Australia, the landscape and colouring is exactly like the real west of Oz. ...
  • Pros: Excellent graphics, realistic stages
  • Cons: Difficult to control at times, expecially on Australia stages

  • Excerpt: "Colin McCrae 3 is a wonderfully developed rally game. It is quite different from its previous versions but the changes are all good. In this edition when you do a championship race you drive as Colin McCrae in the Ford Focus and work your way through the 7 courses for each country. There are many different countries to work your way through so it can keep you occupied for a long time. Other options are to not do the Championship and just have a quick ...
  • Pros: Amazing graphics and an addictive game
  • Cons: Can't think of any
