Top Racing Games of 2012
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top racing games of 2012, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
ModNation Racers is good fun with mates and has a surprising amount of depth, but lacks the magic that would have elevated it to a must own title.
There's a scrappy little multiplayer brawler to be had with DiRT Showdown
There's just enough style in F1 Race Stars to make it stand on its own.
2048 isn't the best WipEout game in the series, but it's certainly a positive endorsement of Sony's latest portable hardware.
The subtle improvements are almost invisible to an untrained eye, but F1 nuts will find immeasurable satisfaction in taming and tuning this year’s cars to performance perfection.
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed mixes some wonderfully loving nostalgia and ambitious design to create a credible Mario Kart alternative.
Thanks to the excellent leaderboard integration RC offers a greater sense of competition than many standard racing games, and will tug at you time and time again.
Joe Danger 2 can be an incredibly tricky game, but it’s one that always puts a smile on my face.
Forza Horizon isn't a game that needs tedious cut-scenes to force a narrative; the road will do that on its own.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted's greatest achievement is how it sets such a firm focus on racing. Criterion set out to make an open-world arcade racer where competition is king, and succeeded.
