Project Gotham Racing 3 (PGR3) Reviews

I have recently jumped into Project Gotham Racing, and it is a blast. Here are some of the top reviews of this racing masterpiece.

Next Level Gaming - 95
You can argue that some of the other Xbox 360 launch titles may not be truly next-generation, or just the same game wrapped up in a graphics update. Project Gotham Racing 3 is not that game. Next generation doesn't always have to be about the graphics engine, but about features and what you're bringing to the table that you can't do on an original Xbox unit. There is a lot to this game from inside and out. This is a game that you go into Walmart or Target (because you won't be able to get it at a game store) and buy the Xbox 360 to play. This is what I would consider a true system seller.

1Up - 10
Is PGR3 without fault? Pretty much. Sure, I'd love the ability to completely remove the HUD for a more immersive experience. I wish I could drive through the streets of the game's cities freely, without track markers dictating my path. This would give the player a better chance to appreciate the work that's gone into recreating the environments; though the included photo mode (which can be accessed at any time from the pause menu) does allow gamers to stop, stare and wander the tracks to their heart's content. And God, what I wouldn't give to be able to plug my Driving Force Pro steering wheel into my Xbox 360; it's USB, Microsoft... Hook us up with some drivers! But aside from this sort of general nitpicking, there's very little to complain about in PGR3. It's more immersive than any other racer out there. It's more fun, too. And finally, those urges I have about wanting to reclaim my former vehicle can be put to rest. Who needs a lemon when you can drive a Ferrari at home? Review

GameSpy - 4.5/5
Already there's a ripe online community blasting through the circuits of Project Gotham 3. If you're looking for a deep racing Sim with a community of opponents ready to go 24 hours a day, this is your game. It's easy on the eyes and a blast to play -- Gotham is among the best that the new 360 platform has to offer. Review

Xbox Solution - 9.0
The game is a mix of arcade and sim-style racing and the emphasis is on taking the turns the right way to score the big points. It may take some that are used to arcade only racing to adjust but the time will be well spent. To enjoy PGR 3 you just need to adjust your mind set. It offers plenty. It really offers a challenge and can be enjoyed by everyone and is a blast to play online! Review

GamingAge - 4.5/5
If you have an Xbox 360, Project Gotham Racing 3 is a must own title, whether you are a big racing fan or not. The Xbox Live functionality and the next-gen visuals are what will appeal to most hardcore gamers, while the exotic stable of cars and easy to get into gameplay will hook the casuals. The single player experience is a bit shorter than expected, but the unlockables, additional modes, and Xbox Live functionality almost make up for it. Either way it's worth your hard-earned $50, especially if you own an HDTV. Review
