If you can, wait for :

1. Fastlane (in app store review)

Yeah wait for those two or get Asphalt and/or Powerboat. Those are the best racing games currently available.
The other racers are mostly craptacular.

btw: Asphalt is currently 20% off. A steal if you ask me.

NFS should be out before December, so I'd recommend waiting for that

Depends on your budget...

I've played Moto Chaser, Crash, A4, Cro-Mag, Asphalt, and Raging Thunder. The last two are the best and have WiFI. Raging Thunder will soon have online Multiplayer. Still, I really am waiting for the hard core, realistic graphics and gameplay of NFS and Fastlane. By comparison, the other games are introductory offerings.

I do like Asphalt4 and Raging Thunder, although both have their flaws. They are the best racers so far in my opinion (although I haven't bought Powerboat, so I am not counting that). However, I still like Moto Chaser- a pretty decent point to point racer (the only one so far until Fastlane) with superfast graphics and good solid gameplay. It's also a steal at 59p/$.99

Yeah, both Motochaser and Raging Thunder suck. I'd recommend buying Asphalt if u really can't wait a couple of months for NFS or Fastlane.
