    "WOW. WOW is all I can see about this game. I have been using racing simulators for almost 10 years now and have tried nearly 100 if I had to guess, not a single one even comes close. I don't see how it's possible to be any closer to the track without being in a real car. You will not believe experience until you try it."

    "Need for Speed has always been a favorite of mine. In my opinion it is one of the best racing games every made for sure!"

    "Need for Speed No Limits is a great racing game. Need for Speed is one of the best arcade racing titles and this installment is as good as the previous ones. It's fun, got great graphics, and is very replayable."

    "This is a pretty typical racing game, though the extra stress of having to be aware of the damage to your car is a nice twist. THis is essentially the racing version of a shooter game that makes you keep track of how many bullets you've shot, and it's pretty fun."

    "I decided to give Need for Speed Most Wanted a try since I enjoy racing style games. However I was pretty disappointed with the game play and it could use quite a few improvements when it comes to the controls and handling of the vehicles. I found it very frustrating at times while playing and eventually have quit playing."

    "Trackmania Turbo promises some interesting and unique features, but it cannot deliver all of them to the extent you might expect. VR and online features, in particular, seem to be lacking. The game is also priced more like an AAA than an indie title, and is generally not worth the money - it might be more worth recommending at half the price. Other racing games are a little less innovative, but they execute their objective more efficiently, so I'd have to recommend something else."

    "So I probably wouldn't let my 10 year-old kid play Carmageddon: Reincarnation, or any of the games in the Carmageddon series for that matter. But I'll play them with pleasure and delight. It's not the mowing down of pedestrians that for me is the attraction of this game; it's the incredibly engaging driving play. (NB: I looked for Carmageddon: Reincarnation on Steam, and it didn't appear, though other games in the series did.)"

    "Wreckfest is the best new race car game available right now. When my friends and I get together for game night, we play Wreckfest for hours at a time!"

    "While this game is incredibly good, this game doesn't feature cars as playable vehicles. This game is about motorcycles and racing them. Cars are driven by NPCs, not humans."

    "Race Room is such an awesome game! I love that it's free to play on PC, so it's accessible for everyone. You can play it with a keyboard and mouse, or with more expensive gear. They have a wide selection of cars and tracks. I'd recommend this game to anyone who loves racing games."

    "Racing games have always been some of my favorites. I came across rFactor 2 after seeing an advertisement so I decided to give it a try. I actually did not end up liking it that much and think that there are much better options available."

    "I love love love Carmageddon Max Damage! Ha, its the way I feel like driving sometimes in city traffic. The ultimate smash em up driving game, so many environments to explore, so many things to smash, so many bodies to squish. I'd give it 10 stars just for the stress relief."

    "I tried playing SPINTIRES while over at a friend's house the other week and did not enjoy it at all. The control scheme was not that good and I just didn't like it. Definitely not one of the best car racing games at the moment."

    "For car racing games this one is very sleek and has some of the best graphics to date. It has multiple views and ways of playing the game. You will probably lose way too much time racing around in this. The broadcast feature was especially cool. A great game all-around."

    "If you like reckless driving and running into things then you'll like FlatOut2.You know you can't be reckless in real life. But you can take out those thoughts in this game. It takes you back to your childhood when it coming to destroying things."

    "I received the car racing game "Forza Horizon 3" as a Christmas gift (along with my new XBox One console). The game is fun, but it isn't something that I would have purchased for myself. I'm sure that car racing fans will love this game though."

    "Lots of fun, and definitely addictive as well. If I play in the evening I end up driving race cars all night in my dreams. Not such a bad thing, but it gets intense. The game itself is neatly done, with shiny cars and fun racetracks to speed around, and (occasionally) crash your car all over. I don't think that the game is any better than competitors like, say, Burnout Paradise, but it's fun nevertheless, and has a slightly different vibe, which provides a bit of novelty to the racing app enthusiast. Worth trying, for sure."

    "From what I've played of it on the Xbox One, Forza 7 is a great game. Unfortunately I don't own an Xbox One of my own and it just won't run on my computer, I don't know why considering I exceeded all the minimum requirements. Good game if you can play it."

    "While Midnight Club 2 is a really fun racing game, it simply does not hold up to today's modern racing games. It has a fun setup, insofar as you can go wherever you want, but it was released in 2003, and the graphics are terrible by today's standards. You can get Midnight Club 2 for a cheap price today, but if you want good graphics, you should look elsewhere."

    "GRID 2 is an exceptionally polished racing game. It's a technical marvel in the sense that it boasts extremely detailed graphics while being very well optimized. As long as you have a reasonably modern computer, you should be able to run this game without any issues. There are a wide variety of game modes, including both single and multiplayer. However, the game isn't without its issues. The multiplayer is plagued by microtransactions and it's very much a casual racing game, as opposed to a realistic "simulation" style game like many of its competitors. If you're more interested in single player racing and interesting in a more casual experience, then GRID 2 would be a fine choice."

    "I love being able to play the part of the cops in need for speed rivals. Most of the games you are the one getting chased but i have more fun hunted down the bad guys! Need for Speed Rivals presents some challenging roads with gritty surfaces which add to the effect. Being able to partner up or play solo is also a big plus for me."

    "This is a pulse-pounding racing game. High octane, white knuckle, knock-your-socks-off speed. It really brings me back to great fast-paced racing games I used to play like F-Zero GX. I can't get enough of this game."

    "WRC 7 is excitement. This is what we have been waiting for in racing games for 2 decades. The graphics are crisp, handling is smooth, and over-all it is just a well rounded game. Maybe a little on the pricey side for a racing game, but it is worth it."

    "This is a highly objective topic. There are many car racing games. The Grand Tourismo series for instance; this would be a top pick for fans of realism. Blur is a hybrid racing game, with weapons and defense in. Like a modern Spy Hunter. For my taste, you can beat Mario Kart for a car racing game. That's if we are allowing hybrids."
