best racing Games for PS3

16 replies 2417 views Edited Jan 21, 2013

Hi guys,

 

I recently became a proud owner of a PS3 and started picking up on games..

I bought GT-3 for a starter but the graphics are not really that great and didn't like it..

 

So i'm on the lookout for a good racing game..

It need to be pure race (something like NFS series)  .. I'm open to things like rally (colin mcrae is one i've seen but yet to decide)...

 

It would be helpful if anyone can list out a few nice games I can try.

 

Thanks

Welcome to the racing forums, new_1_guy!

 

You won't be new for long. :smileyhappy:

 

Give GT5 a chance, especially if you want an active on-line community to race with. It is much more appropriate on a PS3 than a GT3, which has PS2 graphics. For GT3 to play on a PS3, did you just buy an older refurbished console?

No... I bought a brand new PS3 from the Sony center itself..
May be i've not got the version right.. Will check and revert...

Btw, I'm currently playing F1 '12 .. The DRS and KERS does not seem to open or be made available always (in the career mode) .. Is it something I have to unlock ??

PS :: I"m sorry i forgot my password so created a new handle..

In race mode DRS can be only used in the DRS zone and if your less then a second behind the car in front.

 

As for KERS not all the teams had it in 2012. In particular HRT and Marussia.

If you can wait a few months to a year, Project C.A.R.S. looks really interesting.

i personally like the Dirt series... Gran Turismo 5 was good... the need for speeds series on the ps3 needs help... there no where near as fun as the old Need for speed Underground series was on Ps2
