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.
Excerpt: out of all of the racing games that i have played on my PS2, this is in joint first along with Gran Turismo 4 (also a great game!) this game is the third in the series of the TOCA line, and most deffinitely the best one yet. there is more variety, more realism, and more addictive! the game has a lot of thoroughbread racing vehicles, such as the Formula Palmer Audi, Formula Ford, Formula BMW, Palmer Caterham and Jaguar, as well as the likes of the Evo Rally Car, and other...
Excerpt: One of the best racing games that i have ever bought. All of the cars on the game are very realistic, with several different driver views for the user to really get in the car. the game has the usual time trial format, and has a section where you can unlock new cars and types of races.
Pros: Lots of cars, tracks, and good graphics, the real driving experience
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.
Excerpt: As with all of us, we judge a game based on a previous game we have played and look for similar or more enjoyment. This is no PGR on any platform. The game give a varied selection of cars and tracks, not just road but rally, dirt buggys, racing trucks... to name a few. An excellent career mode should keep one entertained as well as unlocking new multiplayer bit and bobs.
Pros: Broad selection of tracks, decent framerate, lots to do
Cons: The driving itself is no breakthrough and lots more .
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?
