Hi All,

i was thinking of buying a new game today...

I have been playing need for speed shift 2, which is ok, but a bit boring.

I really fancy playing a fun arcade style racing game.

My fav game was burnout Paradise city and really like NFS HP.

i played blur and thought that was ok.

Can anyone recommend me any fun racing games of this ilk?

Not really interested in the dirt games as i'm not a huge rally fan.

thanks

IMO you could try Dirt 3 or the new Dirt Showdown

Split Second might flip a few switches for you bit like blur

Modnation Racers isn't bad if you liked something alot less serious.

Ridge Racer 7. It has a very comprehensive campaign which has been expanded with 25 extra events available from the PS Store (for free).

It's also very pretty, running 60fps natively at 1920x1080 pixels.

A second for split second best tenner I have spent on a racer. IMHO wipes the floor with Blur. Only thing that spoils it is the lack of online action.

Great game that is, brings back memories of holidays abroad in the 90's playing it in the arcades.

You can't buy it anymore.

I would also recommend Daytona USA. RR7 is also a class game on PS3. There's always Wipeout HD and of course the Motorstorm series.

I didn't like Modnation personally but if you're into kart racing Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing is superb.

Motorstorm RC s good for less than a fiver. Plus, if you buy on ps3 you get it free for vita and vice versa.

Is anyone else still playing Motorstorm RC? I bought it a little while ago, annoyingly just before it was announced for PS+, and am enjoying it. It would be good to have some more PSN friends to compete against!
