    "Great PC version of a classic PS3 racing game. Only concern is it uses EA's site to download content and who knows how long that will be around for. But for only $20, it's worth a gamble to race down nostalgia's roads"

    "I have been a life long fan of Mario Kart and all of Nintendo since I was 9 and I can honestly say that they still manage to deliver the same feeling and joy as when I first played it. Mario Kart is such an uplifting game and it's always been one of my favorites, this one is no different."

    "This game could fit this search. However, it isn't really a racing gmae. It is just a gmae based on driver a bike. This is likely not what most would want."

    "Sonic & All-Stars Racing is kart based, full of familiar faces and really awesome. I've played other kart games this one will do a lot of things i like and very little I hate ha ha. I usually play on my own in career mode but the game supports multiplayer."

    "Who doesn't know the Mario Brothers?! I loved playing the original and I enjoy playing this one too. The graphics are great, the characters are great, and it's a challenging game. It doesn't seem to get old.It definitely deserves the title of one of the next racing games of all times!"

    "I'm a fan of realistic physics in my racing games. This delivers. If you are in the market for cartoony physics ala Mario Kart, look elsewhere. But I was in the market for a driving game that really felt like a driving game, and I think I found my calling."

    "The 16 mini games of both classic and arcade provide plenty of time to enjoy being a cabbie in this high octane taxi-driving game. The controls are a bit mysterious at first (you have to complete missions to figure them out) and even then they are difficult to describe. Sadly there is also very little customization. You get 4 drivers and 4 *cough* vehicles. However, once you get the hang of the controls, you can basically do whatever you want."

    "I like racing games. But they don't like me. I am terrible at playing these type of games. Yet I keep trying. This is a decent game. It has wonderful tricks. I know this because my nephew showed them to me. I am having a hard time learning this game. Also even he says the tricks are finicky."

    "I last played Trackmania on the WII. It was a fun game with lots of courses. Trackmania turbo has taken leaps and bounds since then. Great courses, 200 of them. If your an in game collector or stuff then you will have a blast with all the stuff you can unlock. Crazy fun courses with jumps and loops. It has a VR mode. Sadly i haven't tried that yet. I can only image of how real it would look. Its a great racer with an arcade feel."

    "Midnight Club 2 is an addicting racing game that brings back feelings of nostalgia from my childhood. It emulates an arcade game so the graphics are not whiz-bang by today's standards but it makes up for it in fun as you try to reach the checkpoints and finish line before the bots you compete against."

    "I was really surprised by this PC port. This is the crazy type of arcade action we usually do not get on the PC. Not only does it look great it plays great too. The only downside is that I have to use EA's Origin to play it but to be fair Origin has gotten better over the years."

    "Redout is a great arcade throwback title with modern graphics, plenty of tracks, and plenty of power ups. I really liked the visuals and all of the content that this great title has. I also enjoyed racing around in a hover car like vehicle. The tracks can get really interesting."

    "I have been looking for a game like Need For Speed but with a large multiplayer aspect for quite some time and stumbled upon The Crew by mistake. Needlessly to say, I am very impressed with The Crew and really enjoy showing off the car's that I have earned to all of my friends. The controls are very tight as well just like all of my other favorite racing games."

    "This game is awesome for those looking for racing games. If you're specifically looking for arcade games, this won't really be your style. But in general, this game is a lot of fun to play by yourself or with friends!"

    "I've been a fan of the Need for Speed series all the way back to 1995 when it started out as simply Road & Track Presents The Need for Speed. I followed up with every single edition afterwards and there have been many. The most recent, Need for Speed: Payback, I was able to get early access to it and so far I have to say this has to be the most fun I've had in the series. The graphics are mind blowing and the game play is top notch. I really dig the car selection this time around and they really got the tuning down to a fun balance of arcade or sim depending on playing preference. I know I won't be going out for awhile because I'll be glued to my console with the current best arcade racing game out today."
