Motorstorm... but that's more a racing game than driving game. Formula 1 is very good if you can track it down, GRID is very good too...

What sort of racing games does he enjoy on other platforms?

I know its old but Grid is a good one:thumbsup:

yeh Grid will give you a good experience of arcade/sim which makes it fun but also challenging if you want it to be.

If you want hardcore Sim then GT5 which I think is release early next year.

p.s Forza 3 ftw! w00t lol

Grids also quie cheap now can be had for £15 new:thumbsup:

dirt 2 is very good, and quite similar to grid
cant go wrong with burnout paradise, - dirt cheap and absoultey loads to do.

I'm assuming you mean Forza Motorsport, if so the direct PS3 equivilent is Gran Turismo which isn't out until next year, sound like GRID is your best bet...

Make sure you steer clear of Need For Speed...

There is one Need for Speed that is Good IMO and Thats Most Wanted but wouldnt touch any others. But cant get that on Ps3 anyway:whistling:

Agreed, I love Most Wanted. :thumbsup: Not on PS3 though so I didn't want to confuse the issue.

Shame though they did it for 360

NFS Shift - for "fun", tho im getting a little annoyed with the game with my G25....... good for a NFS (Need for speed) game but feel its tainted with realism tbh, they had simbin (a great simulation racing physics developer) helping them with the physics and yet it doesnt feel as fun or as realistic as GRID or GT5 imo.

Gran turismo 5 prologue - for realism

GRID - for the inbetween (Big big game tho, get alot for your money)

Ferrari challenge - if you think your an expert

Burnout - pure madness but laughable fun.

Dirt 1 - traditional rally game

Dirt 2 - tainted somewhat imo, but ok non the less (alot of people seem to like it)

NFS Carbon - was good, but bit old now, again a bit of fun

Same here lol. I keep getting a warning saying i'm under 500Mb.
I don't think there is anything more i can delete argh.
But yeah anything Gran Turismo is a must buy, it's pure perfection and i'm going to jiz my pants when i finally play Gran Turismo 5

GRID really is a fantastic game, must have imho. Dirt is also a very slick rally game, slightly let down by the lack of rumble support. Pure is an underated arcade racer which, unlike both Motorstorm titles, doesn't resort to using cheating AI. :thumbsup:
