NOS! It’s time to check out the best PSP racing games of all time! Press the NOS button.
When people think about games, they always think about Nintendo DS. The PSP has always been in its shadow. Still, it has been in charge for a long time and done a great job.
Since the Nintendo 3DS has more than 1,900 games, there are still a lot of great ones to play. Even we haven’t played them all!
The best PSP racing games were easier to choose from than you might think.
I think it’s because this thing has so many classic games on it, including many mash-ups of previous epic games that gave old series new life in the hands of gamers on the go. There are a lot of great books to choose from, but these are my favourite ones of all time.
As always, if you click any link, picture, or button, you’ll be taken to an official buying page.
Ridge Racer (2004)
There is a Ridge Racer game that starts this list of the best PSP games of all time! Some of the best arcade vibes can be found in this collection of games, and this portable racer is no exception. It uses 24 tracks from all of the Ridge Racer games.
This is true: We’ve got a book on our hands.
The PSP also makes this game look a lot better than it should on a small device. Take a look at the picture below. A home console could play some of these levels, and you wouldn’t even know it was different.
Atari Karts aren’t for you if you’re tired of playing them over and over and need something with a lot of “oomph.” Then look no further.
In this game, you can play multiplayer over WiFi with up to seven of your friends. This means that you won’t ever be bored again!
Turns out that the best way to make a great game is to use old tracks, add a lot of Nitrous Oxide, and reach speeds of over 210kmh! Sorted!
Wipeout Pure (2005)
It comes in at number 15 on this list of the best PSP racing games of all time!
Wheels are old news. Everybody knows it, but they’re afraid to say it. This is why we’re starting to talk about cars of the future on this site.
Oh no, we just love the idea of a league where people can fly around corners at supersonic speeds in an anti-gravity league. BRUTAL!
Do you think this game has a lot of weapons to use? The answer is yes. Among the things we’re talking about are missiles, bombs, and all kinds of evil firepower from the future that can help you get ahead.
The PSP also lets gamers play against their friends over WiFi, which means Brandon and I spend more time racing through space upside down than we do working.
Epic music is also important in this game. Every single note is a tour-de-force, and it gets your heart rate up from the start.
To do this for half an hour, I’ll have to take a break. In thirty, I’ll see you.
Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars (2007)
Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars is next on my list.
Fare Wars is a little like Number 6 below. It’s a mix of games. It takes parts from the first two Crazy Taxi games and puts them together, letting players race around well-known and old-fashioned tracks.
You can enjoy the excitement of the San Francisco levels from Crazy Taxi 1 and the madness of the New York City levels from the second game, which is also called Crazy Taxi 2.
In this game, you can play the same mini-games and even upload your own music to listen to, but the most important thing is to get the fare!
You don’t race against other cars in Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars. It’s a race against the clock for people to get to their destinations on time.
As long as you play the WiFi multiplayer and compete with other taxi drivers who can get the most fares in the allotted amount of time.
Fare Wars is also dirty.
If you want to steal passengers from other drivers and record yourself doing it, you can now do it. They are so mad when I do this. Which could be why they no longer answer my calls.
… Please get in touch if you’re reading this!
Toca Race Driver 3 Challenge (2007)
You can’t win this race to find the best PSP racing games of all time if Toca Race Driver 3 Challenge comes in at number 13.
It’s not really a race. In this case, you don’t get a fine if you stop at the middle.
If you like racing games, Codemasters has made a lot of great ones over the years. The first Toca game for the PSP was no exception.
For a small disc, you get a lot for your money when it comes to championships and world tours. If you want to play this game, there are so many different races to try out. Many of them take you off the tarmac and onto dirt tracks and rally courses, too.
With most racing games, you can make the difficulty level go up to 1000 or keep it low for people who aren’t very good.
Plus, if you’re a real fan of the rules, penalties can be turned on for things like cutting corners or being careless while driving, so you can get in trouble.
Most racing games don’t let you earn your place on the starting grid. In this game, you can actually qualify for your spot on the grid instead of just getting there in last place for the first race.
Why didn’t that feature come with Mario Kart, you know?
Burnout Dominator (2007)
Even if you think I’m a big fan of Burnout games, Burnout Dominator is still a great game.
This is a series that usually ends in huge crashes 99 out of 100 times. I mean, what’s not to love?
There are a lot of “burnouts,” which are when you keep going until the metre runs out. During Maniac Mode, use them to drift or score near misses, and if you’re in the mood for speed, use them.
When you ask me what Maniac Mode is, I tell you.
It turns out that players get points for things like crashing, getting close to other cars, driving into traffic, performing stunts, and getting air.
… pretty much anything that could get your licence taken away in real life!
In Dominator, there are 12 tracks that are based on 8 different places in the world. Still, if you had a PSP, you could still download new songs to add to your collection.
See, the PSP is the best!
Race Driver 2006 (PSP)
Race Driver 2006 is like TOCA 2 for the PSP. It has nice graphics, a lot of different circuits, racing series, and cars. A complete guide to racing, from open-wheel Formula cars to huge semi tractors, from Grand Prix tracks to ice races. Does this sound like something you would like to do? It might be fun to race a Holden Commodore. A Jag XKR on ice? To play the game, you can set up single races, or you can try two different career modes, one that’s like a Gran Turismo licence test, and the other that’s like an actual race with a video story. A lot of attention has been paid to the graphics, and they look good. The cars are well-made, and they behave predictably. This means that the cars are very fragile and there is very little traction. It’s very hard to finish the race and not crash or destroy the car, so you need to be very lucky and have a lot of skill. Race Driver has a lot of things to do and a lot of great variety, but the only thing that keeps it from being a better game is how hard it is. It’s worth having just to look up things like, “Hey, what does Kyalami look like?” They like to drive a 34 Ford Hot Rod together.
This is a really weird little racer. It was used in a programming flaw to load homebrew on the PSP. It has suspended airborne circuits, big jumps, loops, and games like penguin bowling. It also has minigames, like penguin bowling. It’s a mix of a racer and a puzzle game. Each track has three challenges: just to make it through in the time limit, then to collect all the bonus stars in the time limit, then, if you dare, to try to snatch the Gripshift icon from its out-of-the-way perch and make it to the finish line. In this game, you have to use turbos carefully, time your jumps carefully, and just keep going to get through the graphics that look like they’re floating in the air. Only their weakness to gravity and magnets make these cars look like they could fall off the ground or get stuck. It’s a mix of the old Amiga Stunt Car Racer and Super Monkey Ball. It’s weird and fun, pure arcade silliness, and a worthy challenge for the gamer on the go. Look below!
Street Supremacy (PSP)
“Street Supremacy” is one that I didn’t notice at first. People think it must be a cheap game of basketball or skateboarding because the title makes that sound like it is. After I found it in a cross-reference to Shutokou Battle, I found out that it’s the most recent version of the Tokyo Xtreme Racer series. This game has a lot of strategy in it because you have to become president of a racing gang and fight other gangs for territory. The basic gameplay is the same as Tokyo Xtreme. You can either beat your opponent to the finish line, or you can deplete his or her spirit gauge by keeping or increasing your lead. To buy cars and aftermarket parts, and gain experience points, people compete in races. They win money that can be used to buy cars and parts. In each territory, winning races against the “Wanderer” means that you get to drive the other person’s custom-made car, as well. It looks like there are a lot of cars that you can collect and make your own. A territory/camera system instead of the free-roaming parts of other Tokyo Xtreme games, and cars that were sluggish made it less popular. But it’s still a challenging and fun game, and the only one that can be played on a portable, so it’s a must-have for fans of the series.
