3.0 out of 5 stars The real Catch up Simulator, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The driving is great, but as a racing game it falls flat, they shouldn't call it the real driving simulator but the Real catch up simulator, as the only thing you do is catching up cars, you mostly start last and your objective is catching up cars 1 by one.... even in rally races? This was ok in the 90's with GT1 - 2 now it's getting old and start to miss real races with an AI that fights, here the AI doesn't seem to know you are there.
You have a lot of cars but many are missing, and why do we need 50 different mazda mx-5's? nissan has this same illness sure that is an easy way to promote and say we have 1200 cars in the game while you have 30 models that have 20 copy and paste models but with different paintings.

The thing I really liked is the new tracks, it's a breath of fresh air and as i said the driving itself. but you really miss the sense of a racing game, why are there no qualifications? Why no complete championships in each category for example? why catch up cars especially in rally races? So many things that could be changed, It could be a master hit game, but no they mess up with their design mode. They have even karting so why not a proper career mode where you start a kart championship at age of 12 and they go up and have career choices to go to gt, F1, nascar, or all. Nope just catch up races over and over and over again.

2.0 out of 5 stars And another very bad rally game..., 20 Oct. 2012
If you want a decent rally game then nothing can beat Richard Burns rally.... WRC 3 was a very unfun experience for me they try to make it difficult with a lot of turn what made it very unfun, rally's is not all about hairpins one after another, in the 2 first full rallies that's about 12 races you will never be able to get at the highest gear as you turn and turn and turn, In richard Burn you have some wonderful straight pieces and then strong turns up ahead with difficult handling as the roads are not FLAT like in WRC3. Another thing that annoys me in the latest rally games it seems like you do the same tracks over and over again and not one single race has a time of over 3-5 minutes. it makes the game so unrealistic, The only one who was able to do rallies with stages that were over 30 minutes! was Mobil 1 Rally Championship and had over 700 km of unique roads, no copy and paste. I miss those times It amazes me that in the last 6 years not one studia was able to make even a half decent rally game. Did they get so lazy to copy and paste so much each stage in WRC3 seems like the race you just did with a few other layouts but don't worry in the next turn you will see again something you already saw! I didn't know that when i drive to work i get there in 3-5 minutes and see 3 times the same turns on one single way. Even colin Mcrae 2.0 is way better than this.

Also try listen to the sounds and listen to sounds of Richard Burns, you can find it on youtube, WRC 3 must have one of the worst sound i have heard in rally games it sounds like a hybrid...
