    Thread: Worst Racing Games

    1. 06-20-2012 11:49 AM #26
      Just remembred the Playstation version of Sports Car GT. An epic fail, disastrous gameplay, very bad graphics compared to Gran Turismo or Toca. How on earth Electronic Arts released a rubbish game like that ?

      I had a demo version of that game on PC. Back in the days when I worked shifts as a system monitor, I would spend hours trying to go faster and faster on the one track available.

      Sports Car GT on the PC was really good. the handling was very realistic and racing multiple classes on track was real fun.

      The PSX one was an insult, on many websites it got a 1/10

      what ever happened to the SEGA franchise racing game for XBOX? I thought it was pretty good.

      Just remembered the name

      I'm gonna go with Night Driver on the Atari 2600.

      Remember that one? You steered the track and not the car.

      As for recent games, I'm not too sure. I don't buy many racing games, but the ones I do buy are rated better. GTR / GTR-2, for example.

      Here's another: Le Mans on the first Playstation. Wasn't that bad, but the track was real fun, not the full 13.6km and the lap times done under 1:40

      Any NFS games made by EA's Black Box studio.

      Especially these gems.

      Yep....SCGT was one of the first big game that the people(ISI) who went on to make EA's F1 game, rFactor, and the engine used to GTR1/2/Evo...etc made...I remember playing the demo version as well with the Lime Rock and Panoz, Porsche 993 GT2, and E36 M3 GTR...

      That's the one! I remember the Porsche GT1's being insanely quick on the highest difficulty setting... and I would make the difficulty low enough to have a fair race.

      I have a game called World Racing 2, while not meant to be a simulator it has a tons of cars that people have made for it. I have downloaded a lot of cars, but the physics seem too similar for all cars, wish that was different then I'd play it more, especially since the cockpit of every car is modeled pretty well.

      Are there any phone app racing games that don't suck?

      I have tried a few, and they all are way more akin to boating than driving.
      I can only assume the basic program for a BAD driving game is very simple (and possibly even a "copy-paste" type program), so it is an easy app to make.

      I was totally disappointed after playing Gran Turismo 5. One of the reasons why I bought Ps3 . God I was stupid.

      Any Nfs game after Carbon sucks all year long.

      i don't know why i even bother reading jalopnik anymore, but here's a dull article about the best racing games from a racing driver:

      Gran Turismo is not the best, and certainly not the worst, but comparing console video games to pc sims isn't completely fair (in my opinion).

      in many ways i agree. I think anytime you have to design a game/sim to be used with controls that are nothing like the object you are simulating, there are going to be problems. Also, i can't stand the "tuning" exploits that take advantage of messed up physics properties. Things like: Max down force rear, highest suspension setting front, lowest suspension setting rear, medium downforce front and the car drives better than "stock".

      I would agree that for the masses they really goofed this game up with the controller.

      However for those of us with Logitech G27 wheels it is awesome. It's not perfect but it does offer a great "driving" experience.

      The out of the box performance of GT5 with wheel is very good. Much better FFB than say Shift or the Dirt series...

      On PC those game can be tuned through setting(as well as other games on PC) to have better FFB, but for console I think PD got a lot of it right.
