There are 6 racers in a race (a Human Player with 5 CPU Players)

Reception[edit]

GameSpot said for the PC version,"Test Drive: Off-Road 3 suffers from too many issues for it to warrant anything more than a passing glance." GameSpot also rated the game 6.3 (Fair).[2] IGN were divided among the game's three releases. First, for the PC version, they said, "While better than its predecessors, Test Drive: Off-Road 3 is, in a word, average." PC version was the best version scoring a 7.3 (Good).[3] Next, the PS version failed to impress, as IGN stated, "This muddy, grubby, leaden racer proves that off-road racing games just can't cut the muck." PS version only scored a 5.0 (Mediocre).[4] Finally, the GBC received negative feedback, as IGN wrote, "It's the same dang engine as Test Drive 6 on the Game Boy. Oh yeah, and the cartridge rumbles, too." GBC version only scored a pitiful 4.0 (Bad).[5]
