Currently enjoying Drawrace2 on the phone. Very cool game to whip out while waiting for the other half to try on some more outfits in yet another shop.
If there was any doubt about the suitability of the iPhone or iPad as a platform for racing games, the sheer variety, number and quality of those now available on the App Store has surely killed it stone dead. So many, in fact, that picking a decent one can seem daunting. Here's a helping hand: what I think are the five best …
Personally, my favourite iPhone racer is Ridge Racer Accelerated. It was pretty crappy when Namco first released it (I had an iPhone 3G back then and the hardware just couldn't handle the game and the controls were terrible). Since then Namco have added much better control options and added retina support, making it great fun to play (assuming you have a 3GS or better with the grunt to run it).
On the ps3 sonice all stars racing is one of the most fun racing games since mario kart, in fact probably better once you get the hang of boosting and triple boosting etc. great tracks and once you get the hand of it you can boost and really fly around the track. plus the challenges are great fun. try getting all A+++! :)
I think it's a spin-off from Reckless Racing, and it's pretty entertaining, even if not technically a racer (controls are limited to left and right, and gameplay is more about dodging obstacles than racing opponents).
DrawRace2 is definitely one of the best iPad games in terms of making the best of the user interface. More innovation like that, please, games industry.
I found Lil'Racerz to be very buggy, unfortunately. It was fun and had lots of amusing touches (for example you can run over the spectators if you skid off the track and they'll try to run away from you).
I've really enjoyed Ground Effect by the guy who wrote Populous. It's a very chilled out racing game.
I would love a decent racing or 1st person shooter on either my iOS device or my Android tablet, but there is a flaw.
By having controls that are on the screen;-
1) My fat fingers get in the way of what i am looking at
2) My excitement and distraction by the game play means my fingers slide off the controls leaving me wondering why i am dieing/crashing and no longer controlling.
Bring back the N-Gage or stick to the proper console for non-strategy/puzzle games.
