We look at the best racing titles released this year on both PC and console platforms, and what each game brings to the table


Video games have progressed from being child’s play into serious, serious business. With breath-taking graphics, gripping story lines and mind numbing gameplay, video games are the complete entertainment package, and we’ve picked out the best of the best when it comes to racing games. 


Formula 1 game 2012



F1 2012: 

Codemasters’ latest offering in the illustrious Formula 1 series, F1 2012 is more of an evolution than a revolution. It picks up where its predecessor, F1 2011 lets off, and with a few tweaks and upgrades, brings the realism of the game to a whole new level. A must have for any Formula 1 enthusiast, this game literally puts you in the driver’s seat with everything that entails. From picking your tyres out based on the weather, to timing your gear shifts just right, you can voraciously live your F1 hero’s life through this game. 



Ridge Racer Unbounded Game 2012



Ridge Racer Unbounded:

This game is about wanton destruction, utter mayhem, and edge-of-the-seat racing, in that order. Unlike F1, Ridge Racer Unbounded goes in a completely new direction when compared to previous Ridge Racer titles, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. While sticking to the roots of a popular game franchise is what the fans demand, in this case Namco decided to take a new direction and shake up a game that was becoming quite stale in its gameplay, and boy, has it made a difference! Unbounded still retains the gritty, demolition friendly elements of its ancestors, but a slightly more realistic handling engine in an urban, city like setting.
