The Best Car Racing Game?

See also this thread.


I was gonna get Need For Speed and forget about the other racers such as fastlane and ferrari but since NFS has been delayed AGAIN (January and who knows even when in January...could be 31st for all we know..) I've decided to go ahead and buy one of the available racers...so which racing game should I get???
thanks!

i'm not holding my breath waiting for it or having _any_ hopes about NFS.

It was going to be the biggest letdowns of 2008, well, now 2009! I guess they reckoned they cannot win against Rolando for the title of biggest 2008 letdowns, so they delayed it till 2009.

Both games are good in their own right. Fastlane will keep you busy as its got a huge learning curve with drifting. While Ferrari is much easier to pick-up and play. The graphics of both games are good with Ferrari have a more color platte. When I want to have a quick race I play Ferrari and when I want to be challenged I play Fastlane.

Go for Ferrari GT. Reasons for being better than Fastlane

*Original licensed Ferrari cars
*Tough but challenging (Fastlane is way too tough)
*Graphics are way better than Fastlane and are ever Dynamic (Fastlane you see the same couple of buildings and areas and in a few races they are backwards, jumbled n all)
*Career Mode
*You control your drifts

and the best part there are three ways in which you can handle your car usually i use tap with auto accelerate. Works well for me


Currently Playing: N.O.V.A, Skater Nation, 33rd Division, 7 Cities, Karnival.
Looking Forward to: GTA: Chinatown Wars, Ravensword (update), 1112 ep 02 and yeah the hangover on 1st

I would have to say FerrariGT. Its Career mode is wonderful and I enjoy the different control schemes.

Which of the top 3 racers or so has the best framerate + graphics? I dont care how great the graphics are if the FR is low, especially on a racing game.
