The Best Xbox Arcade Racing Games Available in 2018

    Just completed Table Top Racing the other week and it's fantastic. Would highly recommend purchasing it when it goes on sale. And if Sonic is apparently decent I'll pick it up when its GwG.

    Well there was absolutely no way on this, or any other, earth that Micro Machines: World Series would feature on this list laugh laugh

    Truly awful game that even Codemasters essentially disowned after they brought out a patch that pretty much broke the game and never bothered to answer to community response, let alone do ANYTHING about it

    I second that... Where is Blur in this list?
    I third that...Where is Blur?!
    Not available in 2018, that's where?

    If available is taken to mean, able to purchase.

    Otherwise you could include all sorts of games. OutRun Online Arcade? PGR 3 & 4?

    I actually hated Table Top Racing so much, but I could see how someone might like it. Still have to do that MP though.

    Highly recommend Mantis Burn Racing, unless you're an uber-completionist. The DLC is awful.
    Just a guy playing games.

    Add all the 360 Need for Speed games to the list please

    ... and the DiRT games as well.

    Burnout Paradsie and Split/Second I would certainly agree with.

    What do they consider Forza Horizon if it's not arcade?

    I agree with most on this list except for allstars transformed. Judging by the ratings and people complaining about rubberbanding on that one it was probably better to include the original allstars racing.

    Fair list, I found All-Stars Racing 1,000 times funnier than Transformed but that's just an opinion.

    Simulation which it is if you've ever played it as it has realistic controls. And if you haven't, shame on you for depriving yourself.

    Also to the people asking where's this and where's that, this list comprises racing titles that are backwards compatible and/or still available on the marketplace. But I love the suggestions on good racers in general so please keep them coming.

    Well Sonic racing is underwhelming. Though I have played Mario Kart.

    Split Second was much better than I had anticipated. A GwG win.
