ToCA Race Driver 3 Reviewed

The Mac Observer has posted a new feature article covering the Mac version of ToCA Race Driver 3, the racing game developed by Codemasters. ToCa features 70 licensed cars, 80 licensed tracks, and more than 35 racing types. The Mac Observer recommended the game to fans of the genre.

From the review:

All of the cut scenes are fun, and Rick is an engaging character who sometimes lays on his Scottish brogue a bit too thick but is otherwise enjoyable to watch. I'm not 100% sure of this, but it looks like the cut scenes were filmed live and then rotoscoped with CGI. At any rate, they're a cut above the cut scenes you typically see in games like this one, where they tend to be more of an after-thought.

When you're racing, you'll also appreciate ToCA 3's excellent graphics and sound. Even on a mid-level computer like an iMac, the visuals are realistic, from the sunlight glinting off the cars to the dirt that gets kicked up if you stray off the track. The sound also makes you feel like you're in the middle of the action, especially the dirt that pings off the underside of the vehicle in the off-road races.

While the Rick-accompanied World Tour features a smorgasbord of racing types, Pro Career lets you stick with one of eight disciplines and work your way up the ladder, without his involvement. Unfortunately, if you want to race online against others, you're limited to the Mac-only service GameRanger. While GameRanger offers a good experience, it's always better to play against Windows gamers too, if possible; that way you have a much wider variety of competition.
