Need For Speed Heat tries hard to be a game for car people with over one hundred vehicles and deep customization features. However, it alienates the genre's biggest fans with an overused storyline, over-the-top arcade physics, and a lack of wheel support.
With strengths in vehicle handling, Monster Jam Steel Titans is a very fun title to play, but ultimately lacks longevity and replayability.
A visually stunning and entertaining way to pass the time. As far as arcade racers go, this is definitely a solid one, though it isn’t entirely without flaws.
Ideal for casual players or arcade racing fans not looking for too much of a challenge, Xenon Racer has pretty environments, futuristic cars, and varied tracks.
Desert Child attempts to capitalize on nostalgia with a mish-mash of references from different decades. There are some mildly funny moments, but other than that it’s a side-scrolling shooter dressed up in a cyberpunk motif.
Create exactly the motorcycle you want, then ride it on an impressive number of tracks, with great visuals and awesome sounds for an experience that feels realistic.
With the implementation of seasons and a new location, this installment in the series make for a wonderful, fulfilling racing experience, although it has a few minor bugs that need fixing.
MXGP PRO is a dirt-and-mud motocross racer, which, despite being visually appealing for the most part, misses the mark on the fundamentals.
The Crew 2 is an overly ambitious racing entry that misses the mark. Despite getting the feeling of cars and other vehicles right, optimization problems and a lifeless map keep this title from really being anything special.
Wreckfest is a demolition derby-style racer with stunning physics and a hint of absurdity. Whether your vehicle of choice is a Pontiac Firebird or a lawn mower, the title is less about racing and more about the spectacular collisions.
A true motorbike simulation, MotoGP18 provides a gritty, realistic experience for the most part, apart from flaws in braking, a wheelie ban, and some twitchy animations for the crowd.
Antigraviator is an excellent choice when you’re looking for fast-paced action, even if replayability feels a tad limited.

Imagine vehicular combat reminiscent of Twisted Metal mixed with competitive tower rush strategy. Players choose a faction, and a deck of vehicles to take into a battle against either an AI or human opponent. With limited resources, players will need to collect the appropriate supplies needed to deploy vehicles of destruction against the enemy team. While you're doing this, the opposing player will be vying for the same goals on top of trying to take you down. Each team has a station which needs protecting, and the end goal is to destroy the other teams base. Avoid the enemy or destroy them head-on, the strategy you choose is up to you and reflected in the vehicles you choose to secure victory.
Some video games can take the art of driving a little bit too seriously. If you’re tired of incredibly detailed simulations that spend more time calculating body roll and tire pressure than actually letting you have fun, help is at hand. Here are a few of the wildest, wackiest driving games ever developed:
Attempting to blur the line between arcade and simulation, Gravel feels like it isn't sure what it wants to be. While offering a solid gameplay experience, it doesn’t bring anything new to the table. More disappointingly, its career mode is a bit of a hit and miss: the series of circuits and sprint races to face “masters” of given disciplines was a cool idea, but incentives to advance are lacking.
This is the kind of racing game that anyone can easily pick up and play, because it comes without all the frills and feature-bloating that AAA developers like to put into their racers. With tight controls and a fast-paced playstyle, Mantis is a throwback to when the only thing that mattered in a racing game was being the first to cross the finish line.
Descenders is a fast-paced cycling title in Early Access, featuring procedurally generated maps and a breadth of cosmetic customization. With various environments to unlock and explore, and beautiful graphics up close, there’s an immersive feel that's likely to get you hooked.
