Conclusion: Went out and bought this on the day of release, great game fast and ideal if you want a realistic racer. This is a very good XBOX live game as it comes down hard on people who try and cheat (black flag) Crumple zones on the car are amazing and it also affects handling of the car.
Summary: Just like before, there's the familiar World Tour mode to wade through, giving racers the choice of at least two (but mostly three) racing disciplines to master in each tier before they can progress on to the next. So, for example, you might decide you're better at Rally driving than Indy Car or Monster Trucks, meaning your path through the game will very much be dictated by your own personal gaming preferences, which you'll appreciate more and more the harder the game...
A Racing Game More About The Racing Than The Cars.

Summary: Out of all my old Xbox games, the only one I ever go back to is this one. TOCA Race Driver 3 may not have the most realistic handling and "turning on a single wheel" criticism is one I've heard beforebut this game captures the true spirit of motorsport in a way Forza and it's 360 brethren still can't manage. The big difference in the competitiveness of the AI.
If you have passion for motorsport, this game is perfect

Summary: Toca Race Driver 3 has it all. There are so many different types of racing you can do, like Classics, GT, Oval Racing, Touring car, Off-road and others. Some championships have been worked on more than others like the British GT, DTM, V8 Supercar and Indy Car featuring nearly all fully licensed cars and drivers. This makes the game more authentic; racing against some of the best drivers in the world in a simulator game is awesome.
Summary: I waited for this to come out, waited with bated breath and sweaty palms, sure it would be fantastic. It isn't. I bought myself a Fanatec Speedtser 3 Force Shock steering wheel which transformed my copy of Forza and TOCA 2 into near-realistic experiences. Driving a V8 super car round Bathurst circuit in TOCA 2 was brilliant, thrashing a 911 GT2 round the old Nurburgring in Forza was breathtaking so I was looking forward to experiencing the likes of classic Grand Prix...
Summary: This game is not as good as its predecessor, TOCA 2. True, there are many, many more cars and tracks than TOCA 2. Graphics, sound and playability are almost identical to TOCA 2, which is no bad thing because TOCA 2 was an excellent game, and one of the nicest-looking racers on the X-Box. TOCA 3 still has the smoothest and fastest frame update, at the expense of a little bit of track-side detail (compare and contrast TOCA 3's Silverstone with Forza's, for example).
Summary: having had the original tocas and all of the race drivers i thought that toca race driver 3 was the best. the graphics are amazing and i would advise any one who is looking for a good racing game to purchase this one it is utterly amazing.
Diverse but very flawed and totally lacking in feel

Summary: Having briefly played TOCA 2 at a friends, and having owned long ago the TOCA Touring Car series on the PC, I was looking forward to what I hoped would be a great game. Certainly the graphics looked great and the previews showed a lot of promise. And it's been a while since Forza Motorsport came out so perhaps this will bring things on a bit? On the positive side it looks great - the graphics are colourful, fast and detailed.
