Top PS2 Racing Games of All Time
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top racing games of All Time, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
187 Ride or Die isn't a horrible game; it's just let down by repetitive race types and rubber band AI that can really annoy you after a few hours' play.
As the set includes two or three games that are worth looking at, the collection might just be worth its low price tag, but calling them treasures might be going a little too far.
With a great game engine and genuinely enjoyable racing, it's a shame that the story mode, annoying AI and lack of multiplayer modes prevent the game from being a blast to play.
With games such as MX vs. ATV unleashed on the market and doing what Offroad Fury 3 does, but better and with more variety, the market for this late release seems rather limited.
Kids today probably don't even know what Micro Machines are, and V4 only just manages to keep the franchise alive. Codemasters' latest is perfectly inoffensive, but completely uninspired.
Though the game never nears the sheer quality of Excite Truck, occasionally it is challenging and even a little addictive.
Juiced simulates what it may well be like to live as a street racer, but most people want more fun in a videogame. You'd be much better off picking up the far more entertaining Midnight Club 3.
Crash Tag Team racing is an enjoyable, although rather confused videogame. Crazy characters and variety in gameplay should appeal to the younger market that the game was so obviously designed for.
Kids wanting a fun game to while away their summer holiday could do a lot worse. It's just a shame that the racing isn't up to the quality of the rest of the game.
Need for Speed fans will be left wondering where all the fun has gone from the illegal, turned legal, street racing series.
