Top Racing Games of 2011
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top racing games of 2011, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
If Steel Diver is an example of how the Big N is planning to treat first-party 3DS games in the months to come, the future is bleak indeed.
Other than the official WRC license all WRC 2 has going for it is a decent driving model. Everything else here feels dated and pales in comparison to numerous other games in the genre.
With the campaign over in an afternoon and the rest of the package failing to offer anything to keep you playing, The Run is some decent throwaway fun that will be forgotten very quickly.
At times it seems as though Eden tried to make the experience tedious, but it's possible to get hooked exploring the expansive island locations.
If you haven't liked any previous games in the series then you won't think much of Ridge Racer, but anyone else should put this at the top of their list come September 1st.
Gameloft's Fast Five is good fun while it lasts and looks as good as any racer on the App Store, but a short campaign, some iffy drift mechanics and a somewhat erratic frame rate let the side down.
Death Rally is great fun for a few hours, but without real players to compete against, it quickly runs out of gas.
At its best, SEGA Rally Online Arcade delivers a massive nostalgic kick that will go straight to the core of anybody who remembers feeding arcade machines an entire tube of fifty pence pieces.
If you or a family member really loves Lightning McQueen and the movie's cast of characters, this simple but fun arcade racer won't disappoint.
Those still in a strop that it isn't the 'proper' Crash mode that we've seen in Burnout games previously are missing the point. It is what it is, and it is jolly good fun.
