If variety is your thing and you like a bit of racing too, TOCA 3 is the game for you. You can race vehicles on road, off road, over road, under road and of all different shapes and sizes. But it's a double-edged sword.

On the one hand, the variety is great as you get to try your hand at lots of different styles of racing, but on the other it is a weakness as some of them are rubbish and you feel as though you are being forced to play through it in order to make progress. The difficulty level of the different racing types also varies wildly. Often a good qualifying time will get you at the front of the grid, and as long as you start well you can stay well out in front. It is no great challenge.

Other races are much more difficult and the slightest error will cost you places that you cannot possibly get back. It's very frustrating as the difficulty lurches about between the classes rather than scale up as you work though the game.

On offer is the World Tour, which offers loads of different racing types in mini championships, and Pro Career mode, which gives the chance to race through a full season of just one type. Progress can be saved within these, but be careful, you can only save a World Tour championship or a Pro Career season at one time - if you switch mid-season from Pro Career to World Tour you lose the save! This is not explained in the manual or in the game and leads to early frustration.

Graphically, TOCA 3 is OK. It moves at a fair pace and does the job without being particularly spectacular. The sound is fine, it makes engine noises and the tyres screech when they should. There you go.

Multiplayer is well put together and as long as you can put yourself against players of a similar skill level, it's good fun.

Well worth the wait, a race sim that should meet every racers needs and thank goodness they dropped the daft storyline from the earlier race drivers.
Car & track choice is immense.
Sounds are superb especially the F1 cars.
Graphics not quite up to GT4 standard but who's looking at the scenery at the speeds involved here ?
Infinatly adjustable races, you chose race length, AI level, practice laps everything, making it totally playable whoever you are.
Special mention must go to Codemasters who are one of the few makers who will supply the codes to unlock all parts of the game, this is great if you don't have the time to win all the classes to unlock everything or just want to get on and race the cars you want to. This should also increases the market appeal for the game.
These facts should make it is everything you want it to be.
Yes its different to GT4, but they both satify different needs but no car gamers collection is complete without this & GT4.
Best way to enjoy is to get the unlock codes and tailor the races of your choice to your desires. Anything from a Honda lawnmower to a Williams F1 car.

The latest instalment in Codemasters Race Driver series appears to have upped its game somewhat boasting a huge amount of racing disciples. This has to be an improvement on the already fine series right? Well, maybe not...

The graphics, sound and gameplay is generally everything we have learned to expect. The cut scenes are very impressive and give the racing a bit of a storyline, the graphics on track are very impressive and the sounds are all they should be. More so in fact since damaging your gearbox and engine will alter the sound of your car. The different range of cars handle in a different way, rear wheel drives spinning out if you hit the accelerator on a bend. So far, so good. So does the increased offering on the numbers of challenges, cars and tracks come at a price?

Well yes they do. Those who played the second game in the series will no doubt remember the collisions. Huge collisions. Driving at over 100mph and seeing a pack of cars in front of you becoming a mangled heap of metal, cars turning over onto their roofs as you brake and work your way through the pack unscathed is something you never get bored of. In fact even if you get caught in the pile up it remains amazing to witness. This is completely gone in number 3. In fact all things collision are gone, which brings me to the next point.

The opponent AI. In previous games, this has been something that the series holds over Gran Turismo. Opponents will drive around you and generally keep out of your way, whereas in this game they appear highly aggressive until you realise they simply have a pre-programmed driving line. Same as these cars never crash they always take the perfect driving line every time (albeit slowly, which is where you get your chance to overtake).

Toca Race Driver 3 is a great game that provides both gameplay and graphics with racing authenticity. As a motorsport fanatic myself, I found that this game gave a good representation of real life racing. The obvious pro's were, damage realism, racing circuits, and rules. The cars selection is good, but perhaps missing some of the vital elements of motor racing. E.g. the wtcc, formula masters and btcc etc.

Therefore what is provided is a good variety of disciplines; ranging from monster trucks, to formula palmer audi to karting champs. So perhaps codemasters are trying to make the game more playable for all ps2 gamers. This is a good thing, and it makes the game an all round racing simulator.

Alot of people quote this game is nothing in comparison to GT4. And in some ways they are true. The graphics of Toca are subsiduary to GT4 as is the car selection and tune up facility. But I feel both games have different purposes, and strive in what they're best at. Toca is certainly the best racing simulator around, with full race seasons, rules & regulations, crash damage; it is a must for all motorsports fanatics. If your not so keen on the racing scene, give it a try you may be just be surprised.
