Summary: The best way to review this game is to draw comparisons with GT 3 & 4, since most people considering this game probably have these already; and of course, GT 3 & 4 are considered by many to be the best racers on the PS2. Let me start off by saying that I have been playing racing/driving games for 25 years. I am very particular when it comes to this genre. In the short amount of time that I have owned Toca, it has become one of my all-time favorites.
Summary: Having played just about every Codemasters driving game over the past several years I was anxious to sample there latest offering TOCA RACE DRIVER 3. By and large it does not disappoint. On the plus side there is the same enjoyable and mostly realistic driving dynamics/simulation we have come to know on all of there many fine Driving games.
Summary: I only bought this game because it has the best track ever, Brands Hatch. I dont really care how cheesy the story line or how little tracks there are. i think the cars involved r great and all the British circuits r brilliant. There could be improvements but that doesnt really matter to me.
Summary: This game is fun! I liked the inclusion of really big monster trucks, and lawn mowers, you can also do a pro career, which takes ages, and race for bwm f1 team,(it takes ages but its worth it!!) Very pleased at the graphics, and game play. One downer is you have to win nearly every race, but thats it! Fun and great vaule..!
Summary: As the best toca game yet, i was very surprised for it to be the second version not to include events like BTCC and World touring championship. But wonderful game brilliantly done, a few things that are abit frustrating but once you get used to the game its worth one or two cons. Just having the engine noise and no cheesy musak background poop whlist in the game is a god send. GT4 is the ultimate driving sim but it has no race element at all.
amazing variety...you like ANY type of motorsport? you like this!

Summary: Im a big GT4 fan...and im about 80% of the way through the game...so when i heard about TOCA, i wasnt that keen, as i loved realism in my racing games, but when i saw the review and the amount of different motorsports covered, i thought i couldent go wrong, its gotta be worth i try, right?
Summary: I agree with all the great things said about this game, I even find the Scottish mentor rather entertaining! It's like being mananged by Rab C.Nesbitt!!! The ONE thing that lets the game down and stops it getting 5 stars is the one-sided manner in which on-track wheel banging battles end up with AI opponents almost always sending your car spearing off into (to quote Martin Brundle) "the scene of the accident", but they hardly ever lose control themselves.
Summary: First of all I have to say I'm extremely impressed with the graphics engine, high detail is maintained through out with no slowdown even at the crazyily fast pace this game moves and 20 cars on the track (only dodgy graphics are the rain effects, which are naff really considering what the rain was like in Colin Mcrae). Audio is..
Summary: Firstly don't let my title put you off, if you've never owned one of this series then its great! I've bought these titles ever since the original "toca touring cars" series on PS1 and feel that even though the game has a lot different options, the plot has been lost, there isn't even a BTCC class of touring cars in the game now.Apart from DTM racing the true touring car element has been lost.
