Best racing games for the iPhone and the iPad

Vroom-vroom-vrooooooom! Some may argue that hardly anything is more satisfying than the sputtering sound of a revving car engine. With that being said, it hardly comes to any surprise that racing video games usually bask in a decent amount of popularity. The reason behind this is pretty straightforward - not everyone can sit behind the wheel of a top-performing supercar, so these titles give people a sneak peek inside the thrilling world of mouth-watering gazz-guzzlers and ludicrous speeds.

We made a curated selection of some pretty impressive and notable racing games for iOS devices, which should keep fans of the genre engaged for a lot of time. If you are not into such rubber-burning practices, we've thrown in some racing games that don't involve cars for a good measure, too - these sometimes slip under the radar, but this doesn't mean that they have little to impress gamers with.

Note: The games below are sorted in no particular order.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8: Airborne doesn't focus on realism. Instead, gamers get to race some of the fastest supercars on the planet in a fashion that will make every car manufacturer shudder with horror. Expect a profuse amount of roller coaster-like barrel rolls, loops, jumps, and crazy stunts that greatly defy Newton's laws of physics. Gravity, you begone, too!

Don't shilly-shally, go check Real Racing 3 out!

GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience is a worthy contender to Real Racing 3 in both the graphics and physics departments. While it's downright impossible to determine which looks better or has better “feel” to the cars, we can only say that if you are truly enjoying Real Racing 3, you should definitely give GT Racing 2 a try, too. Chances are that you'll end up loving it.

CSR Classics

Okay, this one's all about street drag races. Apart from bringing some outstanding graphics to the table, CSR Classics is a tad different from the other racing games in this pick – interestingly enough, the newest car you can drive initially saw the light of day in the 70s. The gameplay consist of tuning, restoring, and racing with some truly classic vehicles, which are normally kept away from such competitions.

Riptide GP2

Okay, frankly said, car racing games are definitely not the only good racing games. Riptide GP2 breaks this stereotype, as it puts gamers behind the handlebars of some insanely-fast hydro jets, which don't lag behind their asphalt-gripping counterparts at all. Riptide GP2 is definitely a must-try for fans of the racing genre.

Racing Rivals

Racing Rivals is another pretty solid drag racing game. Unlike CSR Classics, this one puts you behind the wheels of some 21st-century cars, which can be customized and tuned to your heartfelt content. Another strong point in Racing Rivals' book is the real-time multiplayer, which puts you against a players from all over the world.

Angry Birds Go!

We bet you didn't expect to see Angry Birds Go! here, but hey, why not? It's a decent racing game with a twist, which steers away from realism and ventures into the land of the cartoonish graphics. In addition, Angry Birds Go!'s more advanced levels are quite challenging, which is always a plus in our book.

Final Freeway 2R

Well, who says that the best racing games have to employ beautiful graphics and sophisticated gameplay? Final Freeway 2R, for example, pays homage to OutRun, a classic arcade game, and puts you behind the driving wheel of a Ferrai Testarossa. You don't race anyone but the clock in this retro-looking arcade racer. If you are looking for some old-school fun, Final Freeway 2R will surely deliver.
