Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
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.
The score card lists the status of missions, the efficiency of the player's approach, and the game results in great detail.

Good gamebritishlad | June 16, 2013 | See all britishlad's reviews »
It's a good game as far as crash time goes , single player cases are fun, but some time annoying. The mission's are some what the same to what you are used to in the crash time games , drive as quick as you can from point to point , stop the bad guy and do some random racing. the multi-player is much the same as the last crash time. There is a good choice of race tracks/ routes in this game as they was in the other games, also there is a good choice of more then 40 different cars and trucks and the sort to drive much like in the other crash times. For single races and multi-player games i fine racing at night fun experience, as for me half the time you can't see the track which is always fun. As for the graphics in my opinion are better then the last 2 but sound and game play is much the same. There are at least 500G achievement easily available on this game for a little effort. If you like the last two i'd buy this game and considering how cheap the game is on green man gaming I definitely recommend getting it!
Mediocre, but cheap racerShav | June 13, 2013 | See all Shav's reviews »
If you don't expect much from this game, then it can be quite fun. There is always a lot going on on the screen - explosions, car chases, intense races and stuff.
Graphic-wise, this game is quite bad, not only compared to the greatest racing games like Dirt, but even when we compare it to titles from 2008 or so. Anyway, graphics aren't always the most important thing, right?
The game is pretty cheap (9,99$ without any promotions), and it adds up to Steam library, so it is not a bad choice for people that like to collect games, or just want to spend some time playing something a bit different. If you are in one of the two groups that I mentioned, then go on and grab this title.
