    Well, I'll put my hand up for Fastlane. Love it! Looks pretty and if only apple would allow it on the big screen via TV-out, it would look even better!!!


    Cheers

    if your considering Ferrari, consider this:
    the makers of ferrari also make Asphalt 4
    so the games are obviously similar
    Asphalt 4 is only $6
    Ferrari is $10

    so If you're gonna get NFS no matter what, got with the cheaper option: Asphalt 4

    I've played GTS, Raging Thunder, Asphalt 4, Fastlane, and now Ferrari.

    Fastlane is hands down the best racing game in my books. It's very challenging, drift is fun (hard to master, but necessary to win any of the races), great BGM, and decent graphics. No easy wins in Fastlane.

    GTS, Raging Thunder, and Ferrari aren't challenging. Asphalt's controls are weird and not as much fun as tilting or 'steering'.

    • 33 authentic Ferrari car models: the new Ferrari California, F430, Enzo Ferrari, F40, Testarossa, 250 GTO, and more. • A multiplayer mode to challenge your friends in heated car races. • 3 control modes (including motion detection) for varied and realistic driving sensations. • Complete courses on a circuit to obtain your driver’s license. • Great sense of freedom as you travel across 7 famous cities (Madrid, Athens, etc.) choosing your own path at every crossroad. Make your dream come true... drive your own Ferrari car.In the next update: An online multiplayer mode to face drivers from all over the world.

    Im really thinking of it. I like the graphics, how its much longer, how its ferrari :) and how theres going to be worldwide multiplayer.

    Out of the games i've played, which i admit is not many, the powerboat 3d game is the best.

    Ashphalt is good but it feels too much like a mobile phone port to me (yeah, i know it is one)!

    I got a game called battlesky, it came out today. It's decent, just a little hard. The controls aren't the best, but it was worth it.

    Also, I really love Fastlane, just how do you unlock more cars?

    It doesn't have drifting for drifting sake. You do have to use your brakes to make the turns smoother.

    The game you'd want to avoid entirely then is Fast & Furious - it has a drifting-only race. :)

    I've heard so many great things about Snail Mail.

    However, I'm into car racing games and unless I can throw in a supercharger and put on custom rims on that snail, I'm not that interested. :p
