    "This game is a lot of fun, just like it was years ago when I used to play the older versions. It's cool being able to play online with tons of people too. A big thing I don't like about it is the whole in-game purchase aspect. It's one thing on games on your phone that are usually free to pay or only a dollar or so,but once I pay anywhere from $20 to $60 for a game I don't like to have to buy upgrades in order to keep up. Sure you can just play a lot, and earn the upgrades; but when so many other people are just buying them it makes the game all around less fun."

    "One of the best racing games that I have ever played. Burnout is so entertaining. My friends and I played this for hours. I love it when the cars crash -- the effects are awesome! Also, good soundtrack. Indeed, this game is a classic! Definitely, buy this!"

    "This is a racing game but it's not an "arcade" racing game nor is it for PC. This app is for Android, and it costs $6.38... I wouldn't buy games on my phone but that's just me I guess."

    "SkyDrift is one of the most challenging arcade racers I've played in years. It can be a frustrating game at first, but perseverance is rewarded with exhilarating races around tight tracks and a deep customization experience. Definitely not for everyone, but worth it if you're looking for something a little more challenging."

    "This game doesn't come with a helmet or any type of protective gear. How do they expect me to get immersed in such a game If I can't even feel like I'm in the game. I have a friend that races dirt bikes and he says that Its totally different than the real thing, so stupid. Make a better game!"

    "Blur is an interesting game that has the graphics of a Midnight Club but the gameplay of Mario Kart. And I don't think that is disparaging at all; I've longed for an update on the Crusin' series of arcade games, and this may be as close as I get. Lots of fun, though a little light on content. I can't wait to see what a sequel looks like!"

    "I was looking for a good PC game that is reminiscent of coin-op arcade games and I found one in Camageddon: Reincarnation. The game allows you to play as one of multiple different vehicles that are loaded with weapons and attitude. The game is fun, frantic, and loud, just like many of my favorite arcade racers. The tracks are challenging and fun to play. One of the most unique aspects of this game, and most shocking, is that you actually accumulate points and bonuses by driving over pedestrians. I love the action and the violence, mixed with the solid racing mechanics."

    "FlatOut 2 is probably the most enjoyable racing game on PC. This definitely isn't a racing sim, this is the pinnacle of arcade driving, if you want something realistic look for Forza, but if you want something fun, get FlatOut2."

    "This didn't work on my computer so I can;t rate it highly, I did get it working on my sisters computer eventually and gave it a try but it really just isn;t worth your money. It's an old game and won;t work on many newer systems and it cost much more than new games that actually work and play much better as well. Skip this and buy yourself 2 newer racing games for the same price, you'll save yourself a headache and have more fun. If you are a collector of Star Wars then maybe this would be a good buy for you."

    "Turbo is a beautiful Trackmania game. The single player campaign isn't split into different games anymore, like it was in Trackmania 2. Graphics are better. Music is better. What's not to like."

    "The Carmageddon series of games are unique, to say the least, and the latest installment lives up to its predecessors when it comes to sheer carnage. One of my favorite aspects of Carmageddon: Max Damage is that it satisfies a completely different niche to most racing games, being a destruction-derby racer that focuses on over the top violence rather than tight racing physics. Cars handle loosely and it's more fun to run over pedestrians or smash your opponents' vehicles than it is to execute hairpin turns and race flawlessly. The camera can be unwieldy and the cars don't handle particularly well, but if you're looking for the unique brand of racing that the series is known for, you'll find a lot to like."

    "Race Room is one of the closest experiences you can get to feeling like a professional race car driver. The cars feel realistic and stay true their realistic counterparts both in looks and stats."

    "like car racing? Likes boat racing? likes air racing? This game has it all, and there is also an element of transformer involved. Transform and race, what else do you need to know."

    "I was searching for the topic of best PC arcade racing games and was given the solution of Need for Speed Rivals. This is a great solution, it is single or multiplayer and is one of the top racing games available for PC."

    "The topic is confusing because it says both pc and arcade. That being said, this sounds like it is a pc racing game. I do not know about the arcade aspect. This is probably the best solution possible given the confusion."

    "There is really on one arcade racing game... Need for Speed. It set a standard that's hard to beat. Enter Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, the latest graphics, cars, gameplay and just about anything else an aspiring race car driver could want. Put your game on for this one."

    "The Crew has a lot to offer as a racing game. It really emphasizes the open-world mechanic of driving as fast as you can and going anywhere, on or off road. The graphics are really good and the controls feel very natural and satisfying. It is a solid racing game for both single player and group settings."

    "Who doesn't love driving games? I love to drive in real life and driving games are my favorite. I love you can get a platinum pack and pick a cool car and customize it by adding underbody lights and smoke for your tires. The Chevy SS camaro is awesome! The game has a lot of different environments, such as city, desert, etc. and many different challenges, like police chases or racing against other cars. Love this game!"

    "This game is fun racing but it also has shortcut strategies which make it really fun and more interactive than your average racing game. I love the city environments, the graphics are great and the game is never dull."

    "I like this game because the graphics are quite good. The scenes are pretty awesome for a racer type game. I like the tricks you can do in the game. I like that it's available on most gaming consoles. The game offers single player, multi player and partial controller support which is a lot of variety for a game such as this. I prefer playing with friends and family; It makes the game more interesting than playing on your own. Overall, it's quite challenging as there are many obstacles to move through. I love the fact that you can set overall records on each track while competing with others that play around the world."

    "I had a blast playing this game and was surprised by how challenging it is. I went into this game thinking I would run through the career mode really quickly but I ended up having hours of fun and a bit of frustration."
