V-Rally 3 for PlayStation 2 brings all the tyre-spinning realism of rally driving into the home with an incredible range of tracks, fully detailed cars and a game engine known as 'Twilight' that brings out the stunning detail. With between 15,000 and 16,000 polygons per car, including multiple layers allowing reflections and dirt to be accurately displayed, and over half a million polygons per track, V-Rally uses the power of technology to create an exhilarating race feel that's both smooth and thrilling.
The tracks in V-Rally 3 are particularly impressive, having been 'hand-made' in 500m sections, with each track the responsibility of one designer. This makes for a huge variety of racing experiences with enhanced interactivity. There are many animated sections, with elements of the track now breaking apart when speeding cars slam into them.
Once again, the detail is key to this game, with high-resolution cockpits and all the progressive damage you'd expect driving at high speed through a range of hostile landscapes. Combined with the exceptional handling developed by Eden Studios and the addition of real rally car noises, V-Rally 3 is already claiming the PlayStation 2 rally crown.
