What is the best car racing game for the PS3?

Hi all.

Recently got a PS3 and am looking for a good car racing game me and OH can have a quick go on now and again.

We have been playing Grand Turismo 5 prologue which we borrowed from a friend and, though we enjoyed it, we were disappointed when we got to 'class B' only to find the same tracks as class A!

Looking for a game to buy now, so please can people recommend which one I should go for?

Thanks

Grid is good and cheap, but only single-player.

MotorStorm is multiplayer and very good.

i loved burnout paradise. and in january they are releasing a party pack which includes a split screen mode. Just wish i could get hold of it for 15 quid. everytime i look it's sold out

I was just shopping around for Grid, glad you have told me it's only 1 player - I assumed that all car racers would be 2 player! :thumbsup:

OP never asked for multiplayer exclusively.

The best racing games only cater for one player at a time usually on ps3. There's nothing like mario kart per se.

Burnout paradise, GRID, motorstorm, motorstorm pacific drift are all good.

I like Pure, great fun:)

Yeah I like Pure...noticed that it really changes in difficulty though...aced the 1st set then struggled a bit with the 2nd lot though...customising has helped though

Play £10 deal?

Yeah man same here, got mine for 360 for xbox live.

Best darn £10 ive spent on a game in ages - I was amazed at how good it was up against my preconceptions. As good as motorstorm IMO - even if it's limited to ATVs alone.

I played the demo and thought it wasnt bad, buit wouldnt buy it for high price...snapped 2 up for £10 though...BARGAIN...probs best bargain I have had for the 360 after playing it...need to play more though and level up...couldnt compete with the speed of others online....nailed me on straights, came 6th was surprised tbh I was that high!

never been a racing game fan tbh, but Pure is half racing half Tony Hawks kinda thing

Yeah it's a lil rough around the edges, I noticed more than the occassional collision detection error. Maybe too arcadey for some but I think it's a blast:-D

Thanks robbotallica, I did state in the first line, though, that I want something to play with OH so I am glad that someone told me about Grid being 1 player - I really didnt know that there were 1 player car racing games around!

Mario Kart rules, we still play it nearly every day after 3 months of owning it! (and I am still quite rubbish! :giggle:)

I might go for Motorstorm, but dont know whether to go for the normal one or Pacific Drift :?

Edit: Oh, is Motorstorm not 2 player, then?

As someone else has suggested, maybe you should try Wipeout HD, it's a bit similar to Mario Kart with power-ups and speed boosts, also it's download only so no need to ge out and buy it, not sure if it has 2 player split screen though.

Motorstorm is one player only

Motorstorm: pacific drift has 1-4 players via split-screen play.

Thanks :thumbsup:

Sorry to be a TOTAL noob, but how do I download a game? Go online with the PS3?

I will have a look later on
