Thanks to solid controls and twisty tracks, but some poor design choices, this is a flawed but fun racing game. Like it's competition, Project Cars 3 is a full-service racing game. Not only does it have options that can make it feel like a simulation or an arcade-esque game, and all points in between, but it also has a similarly wide variety of race types, tracks, and cars. More importantly, your competition when you play against the computer is actually competitive, and won't just let you win no matter what difficulty setting you've chosen. You have to earn that first-place finish.

That's not to say that this racer is flawless, because it's hardly that. There are deeper racing games out there, ones with more events (though some would argue, too many). Hard-core fans of this series will also lament how you can't run out of gas or have your tires wear out, and thus don't have to make pit stops (though, to some people, this is a blessing, not a curse). Also, some of the text in the menus is hard to read if, like a good gamer, you sit a reasonable distance from your screen. To all but the most serious of series fans, these are minor annoyances, not deal-breakers, and while they are worth mentioning, they're nothing that should sway serious racing fans from taking Project Cars 3 for a spin.
