I am looking to buy a new racing game at the weekend and I already have Test Drive, PGR 3 and NFS MW. I was wondering if there was a racing game that is better that Test Drive? Any recommendations will be appreciated!

DiRT was an awesome game, imo. Plus, it's easy achievement points :p

I would get pgr 4. I really enjoyed playing that game both online and off. They added bikes and other cars too! Overall it is the best racing game I have played recently.

Forza 2 ofcourse ^^

DiRT and GRiD are pretty good as well.

Forza 2 is the best racing game out there now.

GRID is very entertaining, a close second and also a new release so why not go for that?

DIRT
GRID
PGR4

Those are my favorites and i'm sure many others will agree that these are great games!

You mentioned that you already own PGR3. I think that pretty much sums up racing on the Xbox360.

I enjoy Forza 2 Motorsport, purely because its the most realistic i think. I'm looking into DIRT for rally type races.

The majority of the votes are for Forza 2.

That's my choice as well.;)

I think Forza 2 is the best driving sim type game out there. Burnout Paradise is good arcade game. but certainly not realistic.

I think Grid is a good mix of sim and arcade type action. Grid is my current choice, but if you are looking for more realism then I think Forza 2 is a better choice.

If you are looking for straight simulation and tune ability of vehicles, then definitely Forza 2 Motorsport would be my choice. You can even drift if your cars are set up right for it and you put in the practice time. If you are looking for a game to have a lot more fun I have heard that DiRT is great and I am greatly anticipating the release of GRID as well. Hope this Helps!

I still love Burnout Revenge, last one before the series went to Hell. Paradise just didn't impress me at all, the atmosphere and arcade feeling was completely gone and it was too much like all it's competitors.

Good choice is Forza 2. GRID seems ok, but the gameplay can't compete with Forza 2.

Forza 2 - Great
DiRT - Great
Burnout Paradise - Terrible (mainly due to the free-roam nature of it. The whole point of burnout is the tightness between the racers and the takedowns - being allowed to take multiple routes means that there are hardly any collisions of near scrapes with the CPU - just dodging traffic.)

Forza 2 is good , but IMO jucied 2 is more fun and GRID is a mix of both so its the best....easy gamerscore to over 840 and the online although takes a while to get 2000 points is a good laugh..

Go buy GRID

i personally think that race driver grid is the best new racing game

I'm not really into racing games but all my mates say its Forza 2.

Although i'd say something like Mario Kart lol

Forza 2 is just overall great racing game.
Burnout Paradise / Test Drive Unlimited are both great open world racing games.

pgr4 and DiRT are the best racing games for the 360, test drive comes in at a close 3rd. ( dont know about GRI, its coming in the mail on monday, cant wait!)
forza 2 aint that great though, 6.5 out of 10. gets boring very quick and achievements dont come very quickly if thats what your looking for.

To me the best racing game is Burnout Paradise.

1. Cause it's made by EA, and that's my favorite game company. And they're the best
2. Great cars to choose from, great graphics, great open-world environment.
3. I absolutely love the online play, to doing challenges, to racing people and getting to choose my own path.
4. All the different race modes: Races, Burning Routes, Marked Man, Stunt Runs, and Road Rage.
5. And getting to take people down is pretty cool too.

Couldn't agree more.

I'm glad someone finally had the balls to say that Forza 2 sucks compared to DIRT and PGR4 and GRID, it's so repetitive and boring and only the customization is the positive part of the game

I just got Burnout Paradise and its pretty good but i'm assuming you're looking for something more along the lines of Forza 2, Dirt, or Grid

Meh, I liked Juiced 2. Many can disagree, but that game holds a special spot in my heart.

They are different types of racing games. You can't really say that Forza 2 sucked if you don't like sim racers, that just means you don't enjoy that genre, or sub-genre for that matter.

I would recommend PGR 4 though, some great fun and the DLC they released a few months ago was only 400 points that was well worth it. Seeing as you have played PGR 3, then I would say if you even remotely enjoyed that game then do yourself a favor and pick up PGR 4.

Test Trive Unlimited was the best racing game I have ever played.

I also give props to Flatout:UC, it was a fun game to play.
