Well, I didn’t really want this ‘Top 5 racing games’ list to have an extra guy pop in from under but you know, it’s Asphalt! First, you gasp at the 1.74 GB file size of the app, and then you gasp at the attention to detail. It’s almost like driving a real vehicle.

#8. Need for Speed Most Wanted
At first, I was like “should I include this on the list?” Every list that goes by the name of ‘best iPad racing games’ has this and it would be too clichéd. But hey! This is NFS! Nothing beats NFS when it comes to top racing games and not including this would be the greatest offense towards the entire gaming fraternity. So here we are.
NFS gets exciting all the time. And yeah, it’s a pricey game, but if you’re looking for a serious, no-holds-barred racing game, this is your one-stop solution.
#9. Death Rally
Hold on. The recent update kind of kills the distraction-less, pure gameplay because of the developers – for whatever reason – decided to put ads in the game. (Yeah, it’s a paid game with ads!). But all hell breaks loose in this ‘Death Race’ style game where ‘not a trick is too dirty.’
Death Rally is harsh and quite violent if you take the game by its horns. But still, for those looking for some terrific action in a racing game, Death Rally fits the bill.
Price: Free (Vagabond Warpaint for Multiplayer – $0.99)
#10. Reckless Racing 2
This is one of the finest games that you can actually have the satisfaction of conquering even if you’re not a full-time gamer on the iPad. Reckless Racing 2 features some amazing tracks, a lot of characters, and online leaderboards and multiplayer options.
So, it’s time to burn the tires, own the roads and all the world-class tracks. Also annihilate your enemies, win as many cups as possible and earn plenty of coins.
