Summary: "150% satisfied with purchase from Packard's Video Games, my collection consist of 95% racing and this is by farrr my best game, very realistic with lots of fun. Also its like buying one game and getting 7: Off Road, Classics, Oval, 4WD Rally Cross, Touring Car, Open Wheel & GT. My BIGGEST regret to date - I waited to long to get this game, learn from my mistake cuz the game is worth EVERY PENNY.
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. To start off, I have only owned this game for three days. I will update this review later as I play more into it. Graphics: The GT series has the more realistic graphics.
Summary: GT 4 is the standard which all racing games are judged, and rightly so due to the amazing physics that have been reached with that 4th installment. Although you've heard "just as good as Grand Turismo" before (as with the woeful "Enthusia"), this one truly is a match. There is no mental compensation for any idiosyncries, you simply drive this as you would drive real cars.
Summary: Wow. Its immersive and hard. Its an an old school game, there are no easy ways to win - you have to train to drive. Each win gives you a sense of achievement which you want to share. Then you turn round to find out there is nobody there, Its 2am, the summer has gone, and your working in 4 hours time!
Summary: I WILL KEEP THIS SHORT AND TO THE POINT. AFTER TOCA 3 CODEMASTERS STARTED MAKING GAMES THAT APPEALED TO THE MASS MARKET,AND TRIED TO MAKE MORE MONEY THAN MAKE BETTER GAMES.IT FAILED MISERABLY WITH THE LIKES OF GRID AND DIRT.MASS MARKET GAMES FOR KIDS AND AMERICANS. THIS GAME LOOKS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING STILL.THE REFLECTIONS ON THE CARS ARE SOME OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN,PUTTING SOME XBOX 360 GAMES TO SHAME.
Summary: TOCA is a decent racing game, an evolution of 2. There are loads of races mixing up the set track list, and loads of types of vehicles which add variety. You can progress via a tiered heirarchy or do a career working through several championships based on a theme, touring cars, classic cars etc. Sound is good (no BGM) but the graphics are showing their age. Handling is between sim and arcade. I find the racing enjoyable and exciting and like the structure.
Summary: ToCA Race Driver 3 is an exellent game. Mainly because it comes from a long line of exellent games (ToCA 2 was exellent), but also because it gives you something different. Unlike other games, where it has a theme of, say, Formula 1, it has one primary theme, racing. This is then split into Classics, Touring, Oval, Off Road, Open Wheel, TRE and, if you get far enough, Honda. Here are some main points to take in before buying it: 1.
