Car racing video games for all the popular gaming platforms are hot these days. Each new release is coming out with better graphics, more intense action, and cooler cars that you can customize - or crash to pieces - at your own will. But some of these video games have proven to be more action packed and addictive than others. Here are three of the top heart-pumping racing games you must have when choosing games for your XBox 360.
Project Gotham Racing 4
When it comes to car racing video games, there are really only two types - action packed arcade style and intense realistic simulations. Project Gotham Racing is a combination of these two types. What makes this game one of the best for XBox 360? Well, you've got to experience for yourself the different weather conditions that this game offers. You'll be slipping and sliding all over the place in the rain, ice, or snow trying to get the handling right on your car. Adding more depth to the game is the online multiplayer system available through XBox Live. There's enough variety available to satisfy the most hungry gamers with additional cars and motorcycles available for download.
Need For Speed: Most Wanted
Of all the car racing video games, Need For Speed Most Wanted fills the addiction for those who love to pimp out and customize their cars. Also, this game adds an incredible rush by throwing in the element of having to climb a Most Wanted List, avoid being caught by cops, and doing everything possible to get out of the way of other baddies that want to ram you off the road. If that's not enough, you've got some awesome modes to choose from including drag racing, circuit, toll booth, and even a free roaming mode. Need For Speed: Most Wanted isn't for the faint of heart though. The Artificial Intelligence in this game starts off ridiculously easy, where the cops are easy to escape from, but then progresses to being almost unbeatable.
Have a desire for car racing video games with twisted steel, fiery crashes, and destruction everywhere? Burnout Revenge fills just that need. While Burnout Revenge offers several different play modes, you really won't need them when you feel the rush of crashing cars in as many different ways imaginable. To increase the replay value, challenges that can only be completed online have been added, as well as the ability to record and send out your crashes to all your buddies. You'll be getting your laughs on too when you see just how much insurance damage you can add up with a single crash -- it's not to be missed.
Though the XBox 360 is constantly getting new car racing video games, Project Gotham Racing 4, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, and Burnout Revenge are the only ones that you really need to get the adrenaline pumping and to complete your collection.
