VRally3 is a racing game in rally style. It is the third installment in the V-Rally series of games, and features a unique career mode. In this mode, players race against the game’s AI in different rallies to become the game’s champion. Aside from the career mode, there is also a quick race mode, in which players race against time in different stages. Players can compete in each of the five challenge stages provided. In this game, players can choose from 20 official vehicles that include the Subaru Impreza WRX, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and the Peugeot 206 WRC. The game also has four vehicles that can be unlocked when the player has achieved a particular goal, such as claiming the Championship for 2.0 L vehicles.
There are 24 tracks evenly distributed among six racing countries: Germany, England, Finland, Africa, Sweden, and France. The race tracks can be played in a reverse direction, multiplying the total number of tracks by two. Aside from the various tracks offered, the weather conditions may also change, adding to the game’s complexity. The tracks themselves are of varying surfaces; while most of the tracks are in gravel (Africa, Finland, and England), the other tracks are covered in asphalt (Germany and France), and in Sweden, the tracks are on snow.
