Single or multiplayer
  • Also important for choosing the right title is whether you want to play alone against computer-controlled opponents, in multiplayer mode against friends on the same console, or even online

  • Simcade: Challenging titles, but still designed for an entertaining experience. A detailed damage model often provides a lot of action, and the driving physics are somewhere between simulation and arcade. This gives the games more depth, but they are still easy to learn.
  • Simulation: knowledge about tracks and vehicle behavior are important, often these games are designed for competition . They focus on online multiplayer. Therefore, they are especially suitable for motorsport fans and older children as well as teenagers, who are not deterred by several setting options on the vehicle setup.

  • Patience: Simulations in particular require a lot of practice. Try it first in free practice, then against computer opponents. If you are consistent in the races, venture into online multiplayer.
  • Make sure you have the right hardware: Simulations are much more difficult with a controller , while fun racers don’t need a steering wheel or pedals. Nevertheless, there are exceptions, if a good controller control was taken into account. Make sure to inform yourself about this in advance.
