Reviews

Crashing, bashing and a bus that falls over! It's all Top Gear's very latest fast, fearless and rather daft challenges in one attractive plastic box.

Jeremy, Richard and James embark on yet more ill-advised attempts to out-do each other in a stinky cloud of tyre smoke, rust and over-ambitious mucking about.

CHEAP ALFAS
The boys try to prove that old Alfa Romeos are proper petrolheads' cars by buying sub-£1,000 Italian rustbuckets and completing a series of challenges. Well, when we say ‘completing’…

BRITISH LEYLAND
Challenge General consensus is that British Leyland never made good cars. We disagree. So to prove that 40 years of BL is worth celebrating, the boys shell out for a BL classic and attempt the dreaded water test.

RACE ACROSS JAPAN
Jeremy and a Nissan take on James, Richard and the world’s greatest public transport in an epic race across Japan. Yes, it’s GT-R versus bullet train and it’s a close call.

TOP GEAR VS THE GERMANS
The boys take on the presenters of the German Top Gear telly, makes you think Fawlty Towers could have tried harder with the war jokes to be honest.

THE LORRYING CHALLENGE
Jeremy and the boys wonder how hard it is to be a truck driver – and ponder for long enough to buy three lorries and take on the mother of all lorry challenges.

RICHARD’S F1 CHALLENGE
It’s the Renault that Fernando Alonso won the world titlein, but Richard’s not quite on the pace. Put it this way: the tyres needed warming up again after he’d done his laps…

FOX HUNTING
The boys invent a new rural sport, pitting a pack of hunting dogs against a Daihatsu Terios. Jeremy gets stuck in a river and Richard proves surprisingly good on a horse.

BUS RACING
Boris Johnson wants to know which bus is the best for London. To find out, we get a bunch of touring car drivers to race them round a gravel circuit. Very scientific...

If you are a Top Gear fan you will love this. If you are not a Top Gear fan... you will love this. If you are a tree hugging hippy who hates cars (like me)... you will love this. An an Irishman, it shows like this that make me love the English. Clarkson is wonderfully witty. As he gets older and fatter, he looks more ridiculous in shiny sports cars, and this makes it even funnier. Every challenge here is a joy to watch. My personal favourites were 'Top Gear vs The Germans', 'Race across Japan' and 'Fox Hunting'.

The fact that each challenge looks so throw away and improvised hides the fact that this is a hugely polished show, obviously put together by a cast and crew that have huge talent and take great love and pride in what they produce.

This is the perfect gift for Christmas. Even better, buy all three volumes on Top Gear Challenges. They are all 5 star.

I recieved this DVD throught the post earlier today, and what can I say, it is one of the best TopGear DVDs to date and is by far the biggest volume in the Challange Series lasting 235 minutes and covering 2 discs.

The DVD features some of the best challenges from the last few series including the British Leyland Challenge, the race across Japan and the Lorrying Challenge. Like the previous volume each challenge has it's own DVD chapter allowing you to easily select the challenge you wish to watch.

The DVD feature many laughout loud moments, and if you choose one TopGear DVD to own, I'd recomend this as it consists of some really entertaining footage which is certainly worth the watch! and in addition to the main features you get several extra features including; the Cool Wall uncut, an extended interview with Boris Johnson, extended coverage of the Top Gear awards, and rides with Stig.

The only little niggle, is I hope that one of these DVDs will have the van challenge on where Hammond tipped his van, but apart from that, this is top notch TV.

This is an ideal DVD for any TopGear fan!

Format: DVD
Well, we're here again. Another Top Gear: Challenges DVD. With each new series, we get fresh ideas and new tests for Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Certainly, the last two series (11 and 12) of Top Gear produced some really classic stuff, and because the challenges are the best part of the show, one should naturally expect to nab the latest compilation as soon as possible, and with good reason.

This third volume, like the previous ones, has plenty of hilarious material to satisfy viewers. The challenges collected here are the Cheap Alfas, the British Leyland Challenge (where the lads are determined to prove that BL actually made a good car), the fantastic Race Across Japan where Jeremy in a Nissan takes on Richard and James in the Bullet Train, the UTTERLY brilliant Top Gear vs. The Germans (where the lads face their German counterparts in fantastic challenges), the Lorrying Challenge, Hamster's attempt at F1 driving, the hilarious Fox Hunting episode where Jezza is on the drive from the hounds and finally...Bus Racing.

As always, entertainment value is first-rate. All these challenges are typically exciting, roaringly funny and will have you either on the edge of your seat, or falling about with laughter. Particularly Top Gear vs. The Germans, which features foul-play from the lads, and the great German Presenters Carston Von Ryssen, Tim Schrick and Sabine Schmitz, all of whom have bags of personality and great chemistry with Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow, thus making for a fun and outstanding, friendly battle. The Lorrying Challenge is also one of the best, as the lads are somewhat out of their depth here trying to get the hang of mastering the HGVs. Watch out for the return of "Oliver" and the arrival of Rig Stig, the Stig's lorry driving cousin!

The Top Gear challenges are fun to watch over and over again, and this is a compilation of some of the best races and tests from the recent series. Three rubbish Alfas, the BL buckets, and a race across Japan - it's not the winning or succeeding (the challenges are always 'ambitious - but rubbish', after all), but the hysterics along the way. Some of my favourite moments include May refusing to tow Hammond's broken Spider any further after being rear-ended once too often; Clarkson jubilantly shouting 'Amy's back! Amy's back!' when he manages to reactivate his disabled satnav in Tokyo; and Hammond teasing Clarkson about his fawning interview with Will Young in the extended Top Gear awards bonus feature. Fantastic. (I only wish there were more challenges to watch on DVD - where's the Blackpool race, or the caravanning holiday?)

Back again with Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow that put their own lives to the limit and beyond in these challenges that have proved quite dangerous, funny, extreme and painful (if you argue your case when going through a brick wall in a truck perhaps...). Top Gear: The Challenges 3 is considered alone to be worth buying by the name itself because when facing the fact, we know the challenges are the best part of Top Gear and no one can really forget it at the same time when viewing such a challenge.

Continuing the theme from the Second Top Gear Challenges DVD, the Menus are animated in the view of Jeremy's truck, the scene selections is still perfect and there are still no cuts in the challenges. Sound like Top Gear heaven? It gets better to the list of challenges including the Cheap Alfas, British Leyland Challenge, Race Across Japan, Top Gear Vs The Germans, The Lorrying Challenge, Richard's F1 Challenge, Fox Hunting and Bus Racing. All of these challenges has got tremendous amount of humour and laughter to fill you up with and so many comments that never fail to raise the smile even more.

For 235 minute's of Top Gear, what more can be included, I don't know maybe a second disc for the first time giving more Extra's? Why yes they did, on a second disc you get the Cool Wall Uncut, the Boris Johnson Extended Interview, The Top Gear Awards Extended Version, Spitfire Magic and the many rides with The Stig. The DVD is the most structured of most Top Gear DVD's seen so far and yes it does include subtitles and a aspect ratio of 16:9.
