    The only one I've tried was NFS shift but that was pretty fun.

    There are apparently quite a few: Real Racing, NFS Shift, Asphalt 5...

    I have Asphalt 5 which is very fun but NFS Shift is the real deal. It's extremely awesome. Highly recommended for the sensation of speed, super graphics and customizing your vehicles.

    I prefer real racing.. It feels more realistic.. More tracks and more cars too..

    so i've basically read this:

    Real Racing if you like Sims...

    NFS Shift if you like both sim and arcade style...

    Does anyone know if one is "easier" to drive than another? I found alot of the racing games on the iphone really hard to drive...

    "Driving" on the iPad is a blast! NFS Shift is like butter, a lot of fun to steer like a wheel AND you see in your rear view window who's on your tail! Awesomeness lol

    Well... I bought NFS Shift last night. I have the settings on "Rookie" mode, which basically does everything for me except steering, but it is a good way to start learning. So far it seems pretty great, though I will admit that I have no comparison point right now...

    I wont spend $15 on a game with no demo. This trend of high priced (relatively speaking compared to iphone) apps and the push to get people to buy sight unseen has to stop. I really hope others start voting for demos with their wallets too.

    Most Best Buys should have a demo of NFS and Real Racing on their iPad demo units. I tried both and they're really fun. Oh and Plants vs Zombies is as addicting as ever!

    NFS is a great series, I like how the screen does its best to adjust the view for you as your tilt the iPad to steer.

    I agree we need demos. Your local apple store will also gave most of the apps loaded on the demo pads.
