About This Game

Like its predecessors, Crash Time 3, the new installment of the well-known action racing game series, offers varied gameplay in top quality. The German game forge Synetic has once more taken the graphics engine a significant step further. In a gorgeous game world, completely explorable on wheels, the player gets to solve gripping criminal cases and master other diverse assignments.
An overview of essential innovations in Crash Time 3:
Completely reworked Story Mode: The previously published parts of the Crash Time series already offered tons of breathtaking action. Crash Time 3 also includes an all-new storyline. Right from the start, the player learns about the destructive power of a terrorist organization that will cross our heroes' path again and again during the game. In the course of the game, the player's objective is to discover more and more details and information regarding a series of crimes that seem to have no connection at first, and then solve everything in a grand finale.
Extended scope of action: The player is immersed deeper into the game's storyline, interviewing informants and collecting information. And the player gets to decide how to proceed while completing the missions – simply stop the opponent with a block pass, or employ other means to achieve the given objective?
Pathfinding – improved navigation: An intelligent AI allows delinquent opponents to calculate the shortest paths automatically, and adapts the vehicle performance to the road conditions.
Fantastic driving physics: A state-of-the-art physics system offers an even more realistic driving experience.
Score card: The score card lists the status of missions, the efficiency of the player's approach, and the game results in great detail.

Crash Time 3, is a very good game (in my opinion anyway). Who remembers World Racing 2? I had that game, and I must say this game is like a much better version of that game.

(Just without the licensed cars). It even has SplitScreen (no actual multiplayer). So this game is ideal if you have a relative or a friend who wants to play with you. (There is even a freeroam chat for splitscreen).

Also this game is a bit like a Michael Bay movie, it's just explosions, explosions, explosions. It could very well be a episode of MythBuster in the game.

What a piece of f*cking dog sh*t!

This game is even worse than Crash Time 2, and where the f*ck is Crash Time 1!? OBLIVION! Cause this series is A*S!!!

The narrator sounds like he want's to kill himself and is very un-interested in this filth. The driving sucks, the gameplay sucks, EVERYTHING SUCKS!

Pretty much the same game as Crash Time II, just different areas and objectives and slightly better graphics. Also the voice acting is still horrible.

However, it's a decent game and right now it's 80% off (1,99€) so I think it's worth it but personally I wouldn't pay 9,99€ for this game.

This game is surprisingly good! I have really only spent time exploring the city and it is extremely fun! When you get the cheat to unlock all cars you can spend hours just driving around and blowing cars up. The graphics are really good and the car handling is even better. The missions are kinda boring and the voice acting is horrendous, but theres way more to the game then that. Highly recommended!

Have you ever picked up a game from a bargain bin, back in the days before Steam sales, just on a whim? Out of a little pool of obscure titles, picking up one you've never heard of, and giving it a shot just because you can, and it's cheap. And sometimes, it'd be mediocre, or broken. But sometimes, you'd end up with an awesome experience that you'd never have come across otherwise. This game, in my opinion, is the latter case.

It's a budget title, sure. That shows through in quite a few occasions, be it skyscrapers abruptly appearing with a low draw distance, or the hard-to-place voice acting. But as far as outright fun goes, the game only spends the first half pretending at all that the story is anything but an excuse to put you in increasingly preposterous vehicles and doing awesome things.

Many game mechanics are introduced, and some instructions seem to be outright missing from the game (when tailing someone in the open world, for example, you must destroy their car when the timer runs out, despite no hint that you should do so unless you fail to). But overall, this is an arcade racer at the very core of it. Some control issues (those of you using 360 controllers must use the D-Pad to scroll through menus), poor design choices (you must go back to the menus to go back into the open world when you've finished a mission) and strange missions (collecting tickets from cameras to pay off collateral damage costs?) hamper the experience a bit, but the core racing and pursuit is fun.

There is a point where the main story stops taking itself seriously. You will know the exact line where this happens. At that point, it becomes much, much more fun. Treat it like a campy romp through the Autobahn, with the excessive driving of an 80's TV show and the pyrotechnics of a Michael Bay movie, and you'll get exactly that. And a monster truck. You also get a monster truck. So there's that.

You unlock more tracks and cars by playing through the game, and while there are plenty of street races on the open highway, there are also legitimate race courses, which add a nice variety to the overall experience. You can take on races with undercover cop cars, tuners, a Formula 1 car, and armored trucks, so you can make any race as intense or as preposterous as you'd like. I can't vouch for the multiplayer experience, having yet to try this with someone else, but from my single-player look at Single Race mode, it seems pretty solid. Reminds me of the classic NFS games, especially with mods that let you drive firetrucks and such.

In short, a surprisingly intense thrill ride on the cheap, with some design quirks here and there that may strike you as odd, but aren't nearly bad enough to make this game hard at all to recommend. Also, cool original soundtrack.

Playing this game is like playing a bad action cop movie. The dialogue and voice acting are hilarious because they're trying their best to put on their American badass cop accents and use American badass cop lingo, but they're all clearly untrained German actors. I feel bad laughing though becase they've clearly put their hearts into it.

The game looks good and there is enough action to keep you engaged, but the difficulty of the missions varies wildly and I'm still not sure how to finish mission 1.4 in which you spot the bad guy, the game goes into a quick cut scene, then it comes out of it and he races out of sight as you try to catch him and the mission fails 15 seconds later.

Only worth the on-sale price, but it's brainless fun in a believable world if you can get it cheap.

So far of what I've played of this game, it's been pretty fun. Interesting take on a racing game where YOU are the cop. The minimap is great (shows traffic) the AI cars react well to the police lights and sirens and get out of the way and you get a real feeling of speed when ripping through town going after some car theif.

I'd say for 2.50 it's def worth it, It may be a bit shallow for full proce.

Worth it if it's on sale. I don't know of any other games where you can be the polizei and make cars explode by running over them in a tank at the same time, so it has that going for it.

Also, don't believe what they say about the integrated graphics not working. It's a lie.

Got it for $2.49 on the recent Exploration Sale.

Voice acting might be terrible, and the missions may not seem like much to most people.
However, it's fun to explore the environment, and the game doesn't crash or lag as often.
(You can also change up the lights in the MOX files for the cars, traffic, and city objects to your accord as well with the right software [via. eleven-games.net]).

Overall score: 9/10

Very good game for the price! I remember playing the first one long time ago and the latest is so much better.

Dont expect much of a story, character development, etc. Voice acting is cheesy but not terrible. What really matters is that this game is actually fun.

The handling is the best part in my opinion. Every car is noticeably different and how each one behaves actually makes sense. Overall the handling is on realistic side, but still arcade enough to go nuts! Damage system is decent, but will not have an impact on gameplay. Vehicle selection is plentiful and some cannot be found elsewhere. Visuals are great where it matters in such game, yet its very easy on the hardware.

The game does support gamepads and every action can be individually assigned and even deadzones can be adjusted.

But wait, there is splitscreen!!! When was the last time splitscreen happened on PC? This is great if you want to hang out with an old friend and have simple fun.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: 6 July, 2011
I don't like scripted singleplayer games. Except this one. Must be one of the handful games i finished twice, once with english, once with (brilliantly cheesy, krimi-like) german voiceacting. Cruising through a lifelike european city, center, suburbs, highway, regional roads. Filled with lifelike traffic. Missions types like trail car, get somewhere quick, pull over cars (violently), and doing the same on a circuit while inflitrating in a racing gang.

Great game!!

For this amount of money you can't let this game go. It's real fun to drive as a police car in the city and on the autobahn. It really feels like Germany.

Great job!!

Great for cruising.
