Project Gotham Racing 3 (2005)

Race cars and bikes against each other and against the clock and against your ability to drive stylishly across five locations around the world (Las Vegas, London, New York City, Nürburgring, Tokyo). Solo Career and Race Against the Clock provide single player challenges and Xbox Live Gold-only modes provide multiplayer gameplay.

8/10

The joy is returned to Project Gotham Racing after the gut-punching misery of PGR2’s solo mode. Obviously the wonderful graphics upgrade delivered by the 360 is highly noticeable (this remains one of the 360’s best-looking games even three years and a sequel later) but almost all areas of the game have been tweaked for the better. Unless you want to be pushed into going on a killing spree, you might want to hold off on Hardcore mode street races for a while because the game cheats horribly and the Time vs Kudos and Cone Challenge events are ridiculous (you should have been restricted to only earning Kudos inside certain areas).

This game contains mild swear words in songs.

Classified 3+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 3 or over.
