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.
Score card: The score card lists the status of missions, the efficiency of the player's approach, and the game results in great detail.
  • A gripping storyline and more than 70 missions with many different challenges await the player

The 3rd video game part for the Series (Alarm for Cobra 11)! So far, I've only been able to say positives Across the whole Cobra 11 Racing Game series. Passionately, it is very nicely packaged and implemented. Matching the Series, a truly Action-packed Game. It is explained entirely in German and Step by Step. If you want to heat with Topspeed on a Motorway without Track Bans, you can't go wrong here. The 2 and 3 Parts are available on Steam. Can I only recommend Those Interested in Racing ...!!!

I'm far from a Racing Game expert, but this Game is just rubbish. I played a few Classics, like Need for Speed: Underground 2, Colin McRae Rally 3, TrackMania, Midnight Club 2 and Flatout, but I wouldn't compare it to that. Alarm For Cobra 11: Highway Nights, as it's actually called, is neither particularly funny, nor let alone a good Racing Game. Alarm for Cobra 11: Nitro was involuntarily weird at least then. By The way, I find it very strange how absolutely bad the German Dubbing is for a pure German Production.

Quite honestly, it is fun to damage and put in total damage to unlicensed Passenger Vehicles. But what the Game wants to represent, unfortunately, it is poorly implemented. The Synchro are poorly adapted to the respective Situations, while some are good. But I'm missing The Story context here. It may Be because I've played 2 Missions, but what's it supposed to be. Ultimately, this Game can't keep me from the Boredom as I expected before. But, for £550 you can treat yourself to that here and put on nonsense. Recommend Playing this here, I wouldn't play this Game.

The Game is a Mix of Racing Game and crime adventure. The two never leave their Vehicle. We have various Carriages at our disposal to stop suspicious Vehicles, either driving through close, ramming, shelling or blasting (using a Drone). Visually, the Game is really still well visible for its now 8 Years. Playful I find the Idea of a more or less open-world City with highway area and village environment for a Strip mode where we are transmitted by Radio orders very well done, it has a positive effect on Immersion and brings police atmosphere. But it suffers somewhat that I am allowed to behave like the Axe in the Forest, completely with impunity:-) Since I don't know the underlying TV series, I can't judge whether the Game remains close to the Model, but as far as I've been able to research that, the Models of the two Cops and Their Synrchon voices are apt. Overall, seen a beautiful Game that turns the Tables and we are not "phöse purps with fast Tuned flickers on the Run from US cops," but German Highway Policemen who mercilessly plattwalinate everything, which gets in the Way unfavorably. :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk6Gj8E3UmY
