5.0 out of 5 stars first class racing game April 22, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GT 4 is the standard which all racing games are judged, and rightly so due to the amazing physics that have been reached with that 4th installment. Although you've heard "just as good as Grand Turismo" before (as with the woeful "Enthusia"), this one truly is a match. There is no mental compensation for any idiosyncries, you simply drive this as you would drive real cars.

It appears to have been designed for the Driving Force Pro wheel, because it works just absurdly well with it. You can let the car find its own path like Lauda or Prost, or manhandle it like Mansell. The wheel kickback is just perfect.

The drawback with Gran Turismo is that beyond a some great new addtions (like Le Mans), there's mostly the same tracks that have been in the series since the beginning. if you're looking for new tracks, this is for you.

To true racing conniseuers, some of the best racing going these days is the DTM and Australian V8 sedan series. All those great European tracks and Australian tracks are here, plus the new tracks in Shanghai and Istanbul (with that wild four apex corner). I've seen former F1 drivers who are driving DTM say what a blast these cars are, and it shows here. The Australian cars are just as good.

But those are just two of the classes here. There's open wheel cars and sports cars of all types to run these tracks, including classics going all the way back to the '30s. There's also a small American oval series that has four very different ovals, including a very well done version of Indy. There's also both a short dirt track and rally series which actually exceeds the shortcomings of GT4 dirt track races (although still short of the standard, 2001's still great "WRC").

This is obviously aimed at a European market, so for American fans of European racing, you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive... December 19, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The best way to review this game is to draw comparisons with GT 3 & 4, since most people considering this game probably have these already; and of course, GT 3 & 4 are considered by many to be the best racers on the PS2.

Let me start off by saying that I have been playing racing/driving games for 25 years. I am very particular when it comes to this genre. In the short amount of time that I have owned Toca, it has become one of my all-time favorites.

Graphics: The GT series has the more realistic graphics. Toca has an arcade racer look, sporting more vibrant colors with less detailed textures. There are some aliasing issues but the texture "sparkle" effect that's prominent in the GT series is not as noticeable in Toca. The car models in GT look much better, especially in the third person view. However, Toca has a nice cockpit view that all racing games should emulate; this is the only view to play this game in. You can actually look to your left and right by clicking the shoulder buttons. When you crash, the windshield cracks making it difficult to see ahead.

Control: Toca wins this one hands down. This is one area I don't like about the GT series. Toca has a very intuitive control scheme that anyone can get into right away, but without feeling cheap. The GT series control has always been too floaty for my taste. I remember playing GT 3 for the first time and having to struggle just to stay on the road...and this happening to a guy that has been playing racers for 25 years. Yeah, you do get used to the GT series control scheme, but you should not have to. The physics in Toca are better than GT, in my opinion. This is the first game since Sega's F355 that makes me feel as if I'm actually controlling a car.

4.0 out of 5 stars JACK OF ALL TRADES MOTORSPORTS DRIVER! March 4, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played just about every Codemasters driving game over the past several years I was anxious to sample there latest offering TOCA RACE DRIVER 3. By and large it does not disappoint.

On the plus side there is the same enjoyable and mostly realistic driving dynamics/simulation we have come to know on all of there many fine Driving games. In some ways the Codemasters team have totally captured the experience of driving the big tin top race cars like the British GTs,German DTMs and Aussie V8s. The weighty steering felt thru the (very necessary) Logitech steering wheel, the brilliantly reproduced sound of a snorting V8 and the compellingly accurate cockpit driver's view all serve to reinforce the fact that Codemasters is a major player in the world of Driving games.

The dirt track cars and trucks represented here also have an absolutely superb overall feel and may be the highlight of the game - they are a total gas to drive. Many historic racecars are also represented here from the Lotus 49 to even more vintage Mercedes as well as the 70's, 80's and 90's Williams F1 cars - as well as a modern F1 car.

There are the usual compliment of the many fine British and Australian race tracks as well as the new Bahrain and Shangai Formula One racetracks - a very nice bonus for the Formula One student. Laguna Seca is there as well as Indy and just too many others too mention. The rally stuff is I'm afraid to say mediocre - track and car wise - EXCEPT for the historic rally machines represented which are very very cool.

Another slightly weak area is noted during any open wheel

racing event. There is an overzealous tendency for your competitors to smash into you from the side and mostly from behind. This really detracts from the game play.
