I don't see why everyone is whining about this game
1 July 2004
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.
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
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.
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 ...
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.
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.
Excerpt: "...Theft Auto (Vice City) and Colin McRae Rally 3, as well as a 8Mb memory card and a second analogue controller. (But that’s another review) ~ ~ A glance through my opinion list here at Ciao will reveal that I haven’t exactly been prolific when it comes to writing game reviews in the past, but this is now likely to change in 2003. My gaming experience up to now has mostly consisted of messing about from time to time with the ‘Age ...
Pros: Totally SUPERB graphics, sound, and gameplay .
Cons: Not a single, solitary thing . (Well, maybe the crashes)
Excerpt: "...TO WIN! You start as colin himsef and work toward winning the world championship for Ford. The main championship mode is split into 8 rallies with each being completed in the same order as Colin himself competes. Each rally is then split into 7 stages. You race two sets of three special stages with a service break in between, after a second service break you then complete a super special stage which is a head to head race against another driver. ...
Pros: The only way to get closer to rally driving is to be a rally driver !
Summary: Ich steckte grosse Erwartungen in diesen Titel ... und wurde schwer enttäuscht! Die Grafik ist wirklich Super, ich habe noch nie etwas besseres gesehen und das Fahrverhalten ist klasse, doch: Der Umfang stimmt nicht. Die einzige Neuerung zum Vorgänger ist der Karrieremodus, der jedoch nur mit dem Ford Focus bestritten werden kann. Alle anderen Fahrzeuge können nur auf einzelnen Wertungsprüfungen bewegt werden.
Summary: Liebe Leser und Leserinnen hier schreibe ich um das Spiel Colin McRae Rallye 3.0 und ich hoffe das euch den Bericht gefällt. Grafik: Die Grafik ist sehr gut. Auch das Schadensmodell ist einsame Spitze. Wenn man durch Sand fährt wird das Auto langsam dreckig. Daran sieht man die detaillierte Grafik von Codemasters. Auch wenn es regnet haben die Entwickler was gutes gemacht, denn die Scheibenwischer bewegen sich.
