One of the 360's Best Racing Games!,
This review is from: Project Gotham Racing 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
PGR 3 is in my opinion one of the best racing games on the X Box 360 console. At first when I first bought it, I thought PGR3 would be average at best due it's low price tag, but after playing it for the first time for just half an hour, I quickly realised this definatley wasn't the case at all. Putting it simply, I loved it.
There are different game modes in PGR3 to choose from. You can do a solo career which is consists of 23 different locations, each of which have a selection of events included in each location. Each of the events differ from street races, overtaking a select number of cars within a time limit, timed races, one to one races and cone challenges where you have to race between cones on the track and use drifting to achieve a high score.
The races themselves are fairly long, especially on higher difficulty levels. There are 4 difficulty levels, these are bronze, silver, gold and platinum. I advise, especially if your new to the game, you start playing for the bronze medels first. I completed the solo career mode at bronze difficulty in 2 days and for doing this you will of course gain a very nice gamerscore. After you complete the bronze difficulty level, you can then start the game at silver level and work your way up to platinum level from there.
The other game mode is online career which if you have xbox live you can race against people online which is tough but very enjoyable and fun.
What I love about this game is each race is different from the last. The variety in the gameplay is fantastic and keeps you hooked as well.
Overall this is a great game and I recomend it to anyone. If you can't afford to get Forza 2 or Colin McCrea DIRT, invest in PGR3 you won't be disapointed. For the price, it is definately worth every penny.
