Worst Racing Games of All Time

Racing is my favorite genre of gaming but these games nearly ruined the gaming genre.

The Top Ten

1 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

False advertising: There are no police chases, no delivering illegal cargo, and every screenshot on the packaging is fake.

This game is terrible. It has no collision detection, no rules, no objectives, no AI. Basically nothing that would even qualify it as a finished game.

Although You're Winner, this crazy nonsensical glitch-riddled joke of a racing game which was probably programmed by the Glitch Gremlin is LOSER!

It is hard to consider it a legitimate game, but the fact of the matter is even though there's not really any game to it, it was released as a retail game and sold as such for money. And for that it only makes the completely broken nature of it even more insulting.
So for that it is a game, just an awful one.

2 M&Ms Kart Racing

Hey lets make chocolate with peanuts inside into racing.

No Smarties Racing Game you know chocolate similar without the peanuts.

Now the biting makes sense.

This game is terrible!

3 Action Girlz Racing

I'm sure turds like this are part of the reason why some girls are put off video gaming for life. - Entranced98

Move ova sista

4 Crazy Frog Racer

Oh the poor memories are flooding back to me. This game almost ruined and destroyed my ps2. Even when the intro starts it just makes me think on how the hell did this game get out to the public. The graphics are a joke. The racers are all the same. The soundtrack is ear grinding and the tracks are just plane boring. This bloody frog gave me nightmares so much that I have hide it behind my chair to never see it again. Just awful.

The game is really hard and just horrible

Who the hell actually purchased this years ago? I even remember Crazy Frog toys in Poundland. The only thing fortunately they never made was a movie, I think.

Urrrhhh I remember when I was around 13 years old and they had Crazy Frog adverts on music channels every day all the TIME and he had a penus what the hell? Frogs don't even have them and then someone got some sanity and got rid of it because frogs don't have them.

5 Fast & Furious: Showdown

It's driving is like your on ice and the shooting is awful

Yeah Agree With This Game.

1.Bad Handling
2.If You Restart A Race,They Can't Skip The Cutscene
3.Soundtrack At Racing Is Boring,Can't Change The Music
4.Too Fast For Complete This Game
5.No Quick Race
6.Char While Talking Is Just Sitting,Mouth Didn't Follow The Voice

6 Hello Kitty Kruisers

A hello kitty racing game. You can tell this game sucks. - KingFab

Hello Kitty Kruisers... I can tell that it's a Mario Kart ripoff.

7 Race with Ryan
8 Rascal Racers

Caddicarus anyone?

Yep Caddicarus

9 Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

WAIT I was expecting sonic r here but a good game is here - spodermanfan1000

I'm addicted to this game! Best racing game ever!

Just buy to unlock in game items using in game currency. There is no easy way to unlock them. - SelfDestruct


10 Myth Makers: Super Kart GP

Data Design Interactive are easilly one of the worst game developers out there, and this game shows. Awful physics, ugly graphics, broken controls and unworkable level design are all to be found in this game.

The Newcomers

? Psybadek
? Nickelodeon Kart Racers

The Contenders

11 Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing
12 Super Mario Kart

Who makes these list? Hoy about putting a game on here like action Girls racing on the WII

This game is great, especially the deadmau5 songs that make it nearly perfect

The first racing game using item mechanics! Someone who put this was a total losers, and disliked 2D racing game.

An 8 year old Call of Duty fan put this here - MinecraftHater

13 Sonic Free Riders

This game is HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH. DO NOT PLAY IT. You'll look like a dumbass playing it, and your back WILL hurt after finishing races.

This game was so bad that it managed to kill the Sonic Riders series. - PerfectImpulseX

This game just does not work! Who thought placing this at spot 14 was a good idea. Between this and Big Rigs, they are both on the same level of bad. One game is completely inconsequential because of lack of programming, and the other had no quality assurance to see if it works or not (I mean look at the cutscenes that are just cathode ray slide shows. That alone is a sign of no effort because an HD console should have animated cutscenes)

Uh, actually, no one did, you vote by commenting on selections on this site, hence the percentage sign next to the plus you pressed to comment on here. - 8chAnonymous

14 Sonic Drift

Wait, why the hell am I in a car? And that's why sonic drift sucks - Sanicball

15 F-Zero GX

There is nothing wrong with this game; it is intentionally hard and you just suck at it.

It disgusts me that this is on the list, not far below Crazy Frog Racer. Especially for its time the gameplay is almost flawless. Be warned, it is VERY difficult and takes plenty of time and commitment to master. - Entranced98

The fact that this game is in the top ten over crap like Myth Makers Super Kart GP and Rascal Racers is a disgrace.
This is a great game and does not deserve to be on here. It's too hard for you? Oh boo-hoo, have a tissue and go back to your Animal Crossing.

Git good scrub

16 Sonic R

So bad. That's all you have to say.

Awful graphics and racing quality, glad there are good sonic games that made up for this bad game

Rule number 1 about racing games never make it a running race


It IS, bad controls, lack of character selection, only 5 tracks, very low poly models and more. - MinecraftHater

17 Mario Kart Double Dash

There are serious, extreme flaws that the whole franchise (especially the ones released in the early 21st Century AD), such as the Mario princesses (such as their over-femininity, the design of their princess dresses and especially their overly annoying, one-dimensional, girly, tweeny voices), a lack of story (unlike in the underrated Sonic Riders games, Sonic Free Riders can actually be compared to Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing when it comes to how unimpressive racing games get), filler characters, not the most originality (especially in Super Circuit which I would certainly take over Mario Party: Island Tour), the graphics are reminiscent to a Video Brinquedo film (except for the graphics of Mario Kart 8, which had very strong graphics), some childish vibes and repetition. I literally like most Mario Kart games, however. Adult Rosalina is not a princess, plus I actually love her for reasons. The original Super Monkey Ball games are criminally underrated for many reasons.

Kill yourself Self Destruct

Is the best Mario kart games of all time! Is my favorite Mario kart game of all time!

How is this worse then oters? - computerfan0

18 Angry Birds Go

It got really boring, especially when the game got harder and harder

A great idea at first, but it was just so boring

RUBBISH Game. It eats so much space on memory!

Why was just some simple little game turned into a big franchise.

19 Sonic and Sega All-stars Racing Transformed

WHAT?! This game is brilliant, although the All-Star moves are really lazy compared to the original game.

@SelfDestruct, Go Back Playing Your Shooters, You Jerk - VideoGamefan5

A poor sequel to the already bad racing game. - SelfDestruct

20 Need for Speed Most Wanted DS

The absolute worst port of the game! Even worse than the Gameboy Advance port. This is not the same port as the console/PC version that is hailed as one of the best racing games of all time. - SelfDestruct

It's bad because of the obvious technological limitations of the original ds and the ds lite. - 8chAnonymous

Whoever put this on here should die

21 Carmageddon

How dare you... - MinecraftHater

22 Mario Kart 64

@SelfDestruct Go back to playing call of duty you butthurt Call of Duty fan

I played the game but it had poor controls, glitchy game play and it seemed like activating an item was a chore. - SelfDestruct

23 Crash Tag Team Racing

You disgust me for placing it here, degenerates.

24 DreamWorks Super Star Kartz
25 Hooter's Road Trip

This game is unbelievably bad in every conceivable way.

26 Garfield Kart
27 Mario Kart Super Circuit

You can avoid blue shells jumping over them! It easy to do!

A huge mistake was made by re-adding 2d tracks. That ruined the game. Also, there was poor voice acting... - SelfDestruct

28 Carmageddon 2
29 Carmageddon 64
30 Donkey Kong Barrel Blast
31 Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Good game but it is overrated. I mostly hate it because some people say it's better than Split/Second. Making Split/Second a underrated game.

Not saying this game is bad but it is quite disappointing. As the gameplay is good, the graphics were average (the road was not even realistically painted but close to it), the car behavior was unrealistic (if you use speedbreaker at high speeds and then turn in one direction and then turn in another direction quickly, the cars seem to sidestep), and the car list was horrible as there was no McLaren F1 or Koenigsegg CCX/CCR. Thatis why this game belongs in this list. Sorry to disappoint you guys for this but I personally dislike this game.

By the way, the paragraph I wrote above is about the 2005 version, not to be confused with the 2012 version. - SelfDestruct

If you mean 2012, I agree.

Don't belive critics, this game was terrible. A soggy mixture of burnout paradise and NFS.

32 Ridge Racer Vita

An hero yourself.
This is one of the better racers on the PS vita.
It's literally a remaster of the psp version. - 8chAnonymous

33 Ferrari: The Race Experience
34 Mario Kart DS

The guy that said how many games those mario need is so dumb

Very complicated game play. What were they thinking? - SelfDestruct


35 Crash Nitro Kart

What? This is a great game. Don't get me wrong, its nowhere near as good as Crash Team Racing, but its not terrible

36 DriveClub
37 Hot Wheels: Beat That!

I absolutely love this game despite the glitches and crashes I love it. Anyway yes despite all of its flaws I love this game. Once a hot wheels boy always a hot wheels boy. It even has my favorite car the bone shaker

I played this game on the Wii, and it was utter garbage. - RadioHead03

The controls are floppy

38 Spirit of Speed 1937

It's bad and it's an LJN game, enough said

39 Cars 3: Driven to Win
40 Mario Kart 7

My only problem with it is the characters... Why would you put HONEY QUEEN, who's in, what? One game? For one level? Instead of someone like Waluigi?

Is my 2nd favorite Mario kart game!

It is worse than the Wii version due to less characters. Still, they ability to fly and do some other stuff gets it off of the top 5. - SelfDestruct

41 Mario Kart 8

Link is in it now! Yay!

Stupid Awful Game - VideoGamefan5

Yes, It's True, As A Hardcore Mario Fan, I Say Mario Kart 8 Sucks - VideoGamefan5

At least Link and Hyrule is in it, and no Princesses Zeldas.

42 Need for Speed: Underground

Really? Who put this here?

How is that worst!? Who put this on this list!? - LapisBob

43 Asphalt 3D

This was the start of it all. Greedy bastards. Well deserved on this list. Asphalt 5, 6, and 7 weren't bad, but 8.. 8 was a micro-transaction nightmare. Terrible target audience as well. You say one thing about Asphalt 8 on the internet, and you get swarmed by salty little kids that have nothing on their minds but profanity. Seriously, Big Rigs might be the worst, but hey. At least it didn't have micro-transactions.

44 Mercedes-Benz World Racing
45 Gran Turismo 6
46 Need for Speed: Rivals

Agree...i'm as a JDM Lover...the Japanese car should be here! Plus, must have customisation such as body kits, rims and spoilers should be enough...

Really glitchy and unfair. As a racer, you have low health and more prone to being wrecked or taken out by the AI.

Worst drive experience ever! Even F1 game made for 386 pc year 1989 is better!

Reasons why Rivals is bad:
1. Boring visual customization. You can only repaint the body & wheels and place livery (not custom)
2. No JDM cars! at the loding screen there's a R35 GTR but there's no GTR
3. Boring storyline
4. The map is too small for me.
5. The cops is just annoying. I just parked my high-heat car then I take a drink and cops start chase me!
6.The soundtracks is boring. I know that's not a main thing on a racing game - TheSuperBanana

47 Dodge Racing: Charger vs. Challenger

Absolute Rubbish... Desperately wanted to buy a realistic racing game for the Wii, would've gone for NFS, but they don't go on the Wii. I settled for this and it was the worst $15 I spent in my life.

48 DT Racer

The only thing this game is good for is "jousting", where 2 players smash into each other, head-on, and continue crashing with the intention of dealing as much damage as possible to render ones opponent helpless to "win" the match. Trying to flip ones opponent on their roof (like a turtle) is also a fun way to win.

49 The Crew

It's so bad
