Good but not as good as it could be!,
This review is from: TOCA Race Driver 3 (PS2) (Video Game)
Firstly don't let my title put you off, if you've never owned one of this series then its great! I've bought these titles ever since the original "toca touring cars" series on PS1 and feel that even though the game has a lot different options, the plot has been lost, there isn't even a BTCC class of touring cars in the game now.Apart from DTM racing the true touring car element has been lost.
OK that was the bad news but the good news is that this is a highly addictive game for racing fans, the graphics are not as good as the GT series but there is plently of realism,you make a mistake and you pay for it. The selection of tracks is better than ever, there are a few more UK circuits back in the game now and also 3 variations of Silversone.A few of the modern circuits such as Bahrain and China are also included.
We still have the mechanic/race engineer in the video scenes between races,a bit more of the video scenes telling a story as in race driver 2 would have been nice but thats just down to preference.
If you are a race fan its a must buy, but please lets have more touring car and less F1 and rally, if I want to buy an F1 or rally game there is plenty to chose from, having said that the historic GP racing is great!
