Worth a look as look as long as you're ready to accept mid-2000's arcade racer physics. This is no sim. You'll rarely need brakes, there's no damage affecting performance, wall-riding and AI-shepherding is a thing, etc etc. Think NFS Hot Pursuit 2 as a budget title. Once you're over that, the game is quite fun, with a variety of unique gameplay modes and challenges, and a ton of unlockables to keep you coming back for a while.

Best control option: Gamepad.

This is a surprisingly decent racing game, as long as you're okay with it feeling a little dated.

What it lacks in realism or modern visual fidelity it makes up for with a level of variety that harkens back to the days of Bizarre Creations racing games like Project Gotham and Blur.

They just don't make games like this anymore. Racing games take themselves so seriously, now. So does Ford Racing 3, but you also get to race in a variety of exotic locales that sometimes borderline on being cartoon-ish caricatures. Golden Buddha statues and giant Tiki mask tunnels await you. These are not boring circuit or street races (but those are available, too.)

There's also a ton of different event types that move beyond just racing and time trials. Again, it's a lot like Project Gotham in that respect: drive through cones, collect points tokens, practice your drafting abilities and way, way more. There's a lot to do in this game, and a lot of cars to do it with. Trucks, coupes, sport and muscle cars, even concept cars and Model-Ts.

Just don't expect Forza. Don't even expect Need for Speed, really. But if you're in the mood for a racing game, this will serve you well enough. It's just not a revolution.

My childhood

Spent atleast 500 hours on this game in 2005

Lots of cars and tracks, fine graphics (for a 2005 game) + gameplay

Only bad thing i'd say is the difficulty. It's super easy to complete.

Defiately worth the 1 dollar!

Ford Racing 3

This game is a classic, many of you might have got this in a cereal box back in the days. remember that we used to get games in cereal boxes!?

I got to be honest, I like that this game have lots of stuff to collect, cars, tracks, trophies, you name it.
I even love the retro style, it reminds me of Need For Speed: Porsche Unleased and I really loved that game! but for a game released for the Playstation 2 its really bad..

you can't crash, you just bounce on the walls or whatever you hit and that makes the game lose some overall score, I love the rush I get then there is a risk and there really is no risk.... Its simple, you win or lose, be faster or push the opponents into the walls, may be too simple, but don't get me wrong, with all these flaws I still like the game, because I relax then playing, I enjoy the beautiful tracks, not just a simple racing track, but a forest, a snowy mountain, I just love it, get it on sale, then its worth it.

5/10

If you played the PS2 version and enjoyed it then get it. This brings back nostalgia and gives a great time, I wish most PS2 games could come back to PC. This game is fun and you won't forget it, on the PS2 I managed to get every single car except the FORD GT which was challenging, also beat almost every challenge too. Fun times 10/10

This is a pretty decent racing game.
The variety of cars/tracks/events/etc is crazy, I'm pleasantly surprised.
The controls are very arcade-y, you quite literally bounce off of walls and other cars.
The models and such actually hold up pretty well in my opinion, just as long as you're playing in 1080p.
My ONLY gripe with this game is that it crashes pretty frequently. Sometimes right as a race begins, it will crash.
If you can look past these odd things, the game is still very much playable to this day.
Just don't go in expecting a masterpiece, it has a lot of flaws.

Gonna go ahead and get the one flaw I've seen out of the way. This game doesn't have many resolutions or graphics options due to its age, so the resolution can be a bit odd. If you're not a fan of this then I suggest finding a console version of it.

Other than that, Ford Racing 3 is an amazing arcade style racing game. PC port works pretty good as well, nothing too noteably bad. Pretty nice lineup of Ford vehicles from the Model T up to the 2005 Mustang (as well as some concepts). The tracks are pretty simple and actually memorable if you've played the game long enough. The main line of the game having normal difficulty increase and other gamemodes having selectable difficulties that can provide more unlocks. Of course all you unlock is more cars and paint jobs (liveries). Highly recommended if you're a fan of Ford, arcade racers, or both.

When I was 5, I played this game. I had no idea what I was doing. I would come last place, and it was OK, because I had no idea what that meant.


Fast forward to when this review was written, I found the game to be quite interesting. I never noticed that this game ran in 60 FPS, especially since it was a PS2 game. I never knew this game's graphics were going to age this well. I didn't even know all the cars, I was just fascinated with any car that was a sports car.


Now, this is a personal pet peeve of mine, but I highly dislike the soundtrack. By saying this, I would be nitpicking, but it's something you don't really expect on this game.


However, this game is definitely worth buying if it's on discount. A true classic and suprisingly held up to today's standards, though more dated than modern. A must-buy if the discount brings it below 50%.

Graphics: 8 [Dated]
Gameplay: 8
Audio: 6

Overall: 7.5 [Must Buy if Discounted]
