If you missed our Project CARS 3 review, you can read it here.

It has been a rather bumpy ride for the London-based Slightly Mad Studios ever since the announcement of Project Cars 3 because its new direction was met with very little fanfare. A series best known for its simulation-based racing is now heading towards a more accessible style with hopes of offering a broader appeal to a larger audience. This is a huge risk and endeavor (in my opinion), especially considering this is the third iteration of the series and the last one solely developed for the current generation of consoles. Did the move to this new hybrid racing style work out for Slightly Mad Studios, or did it send the series back to the garage? Let’s get into my Project Cars 3 review and find out.
