I quite like it, there's actual real depth to the game, four leagues to race through, upgrades and money to win.

At least it's a scene related game as Kangaroo Musique did the music for it. And if I remember well Titus converted his tunes also for the Amigaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

More photos needed :)


Judging from this longplay, wow, there's quite some time you need to play it!

Huh, I'm a bit confused now... I took a look at the video that Gryzor linked, but I found/heard no music?! Is there really no music in the CPC version?

He definitely composed on the CPC (with Soundtracker) for the Gambeboy version:

And here is the Amiga/CD32 version:

Nice copy. One of those last games that we all hope to get our dirty hands on. Even the Amstrad Action covertape with the CC3 demo is freakishly hard to get.


Amiga version was a great game too i recall.

You can get Lamborghini on the standard A500, pretty much the same game.

Do you want it the same way you want Chase HQ or more like Chase HQ 2?

Hehe, well that is a good question. Probably right there in the middel on the "rarety" scale i guess. Chase HQ is a great game but fairly common. Chase HQ 2 for the GX4000 is like the holy grail to most people & for a good reason of cause, only spotted it twice & way beyond my price range. Crazy Cars 3 is pretty high up there though .. just being a Titus game means its quality, its also a disc only game & being a "late" 92 game means few copies was sold & it never really hit a budget range either.


So it is a game that makes the drool factor kick in to a degree & open my tight wallet as it for once might call for a price that resellers openly use blindly on anything amstrad disc related.

I really can't help but intervene. For all intents and purposes, Crazy Cars 3 is somewhat easy to find (uncommon to rare at best) provided you look in the proper place (ie: France since Titus is a French company). All versions are multi-lingual, so it doesn't really matter where you get it. I have had several copies in my hands and have recently sold one. Overall the game is not worth more than 30-40€ unless you specifically want a brand new or mint copy. In general, Titus games are on the common / uncommon side of rarities with a few exceptions (namely Dark Century, Maddog, Erebus, Prehistorik II & Super Cauldron - but they still wouldn't fetch a high price anyway - unless you fall for sharks on Ebay).
It seems to me people have really adopted a completely distorted vision of rarities & prices (because of said sharks). Case in point: Lankhor games. Enough said... I do realise prices are always going to go up (and this is a predictable trend with vintage gaming), but people would just buy anything at any price. This is just ridiculous and Ebay scumbags (they know who they are) are exploiting that.
Now, Chase HQ 2 is the real deal & truly close to impossible to find (not to mention pricey). It truly is the Holy Grail of CPC collecting. I certainly hope I can put my hands on it to include it in GBCPC one day.
