I can get this for some crazy price like $5.39 or so at EB. I like driving games a lot, but am not sure how dated this is now. For those that have played both, how would it compare to PGR2?

I don't know PGR2 but GT3 is very good.  It's reputed to be the most "sim-like" racing game.  You start out with a small little four cylinder and accumulate cash through races to buy better parts and better cars.  The driving model is wonderful.  I didn't mind the license tests but I know others do.  Basically they "teach" you to drive these cars and prepare you for the races to come.

My only gripe with GT3 was that I'd already played the heck out of GT 1&2.  I'd played them so much that GT3 lost its lustre pretty quickly.  It looks good but isn't substantially different from the first two.  But if you've never played any of them, that is a crazy-good price.

I personally preferred it to PGR 2, primarily due to the tweaking of the individual cars.  GT3 addicted me like few games every have.

I'd say the game still holds up- its certainly been topped in graphics since but they hold up very  nicely.

Still, I'd just hold out for GT4 which should be a pretty major improvement graphically.

Hot damn GTA3 is awesome! for 6 bucks you will get at least 20 hours of entertainment if you are a car racing fan.

I wouldn't want to change the PGR series because it's great at what it focuses on - just racing.  But if a game came out for the X-Box that had teaking and PGR's quality I'd pick it up too.  Personally I never got used to the PS2 controller and subsequently had a lot of difficulty with this game.  I think it was just too small for my mitts.

It's coming. It's called Forza Motorsport. It's gonna be awesome.

I went ahead and got GT3 today, heck it was only $5.39 with my EB Edge card. And yep, I love driving games, so I figured what the hell.

This is very weird...

I just picked up GT3 myself at my local EB. They didn't have the original box or the manual, but so far that hasn't been much of a problem, it's all pretty obvious.

I picked up GT3 to tide myself over till Tuesday when GTASA arrives. It's why I just bought the PS2 anyway, but  GT3 (and GTA3 which I got when I got the PS2) have given me a chance to play with the unit, the memory card system and get myself acclimated with sitting back in the recliner watching the TV while playing   :wink:

JZ, sounds like we're in the same boat. I just got mine yesterday, and picked up FFX, and a few other bargain bin games.

Did you get the new small one (PS2) as well? I'm really looking forward to San Andreas, and GT4 in December. GT4 will have 650 cars.  :shock:

No, I got the old unit type which still has the expansion bay, in case somehow I convince myself to get the HDD!  :wink:

Hadn't heard about GT4... 650 cars? Sheesh, I have no idea how long it's going to take to buy all 150 cars in GT3  :!:

I'm having an absolute blast with this game.

I'm even digging the license tests. Even though I usually get bronze, that's fine with me as long as I pass. Lots of upgrades, great driving controls, and lots of track and car variety.

Best $5.39 I've ever spent! smile
