Whether you like your racing whimsical or action-filled, there was alot to choose from in 2012. Although the racing genre lacked the originality of 2011 original IPs such as "Split Second" or "Blur": the franchises that've become synonymous with racing surely did not disappoint. Here are the nominees for the best racing game of 2012!
As if Sony hadn't already proved its talent at making user empowering, cartoon racing games with ModNation Racers, LittleBig Planet Karting will certainly do the trick. The level editor is fantastic: allowing you to create a true racing adventure rather than just a self-contained track (how I miss those days: Diddy Kong Racing). The graphics are beautiful and the controls are on-par with the less-cute Italians who usually tie up the kart-racing genre.
