Game description: V-Rally evolves in its third installment with more detailed cars, customizable rally cars, and scurrying spectators. The world's top rally cars--including Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 7, Citroen Xsara, and Ford Focus--are included in V-Rally 3. Choose one, and then overcome spectators, deformed car parts, and extreme driving conditions as you race in six real-world locations and various gameplay modes. The life of a professional rally driver is rough--it's up to you to strategize your career and race your way to the top.
The game focuses on the unique career mode, where the player races against bots in various rallies across an endless number of seasons, ultimately trying to become the champion. Alternatively, the game offers a quick race mode, where the player can play time attacks on the stages provided by the game or compete in one of the five different challenges it offers. The game features 24 tracks and 20 official vehicles, including the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII, the Subaru Impreza WRX '01 and (the game's "flagship" car) Peugeot 206 WRC. There are four unlockable vehicles, which can be unlocked once the player has achieved a goal (like claiming the 2,0 L Championship).
