Worst Racing Games of All TimeSelfDestruct Racing is my favorite genre of gaming but these games nearly ruined the gaming genre.
The Top Ten
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.
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.
We can't even say this game is finished. Its full of glitches. You don't need to look for them, because they are everywhere!
So terrible it is funnyV 13 Comments
Hey lets make chocolate with peanuts inside into racing.

This game is awful - ikerevievs

I'm sure turds like this are part of the reason why some girls are put off video gaming for life. - Entranced98
It's driving is like your on ice and the shooting is awful
Yeah Agree With This Game.
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
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.

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.
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
Hell, I hated this game so much. This game was only made because of butthurt Sonic fans. The commentary is WAY too repetitive, the guy says "Where did you guys learn to drive? A farm? " about 18 times per race. The controls are terrible, Mario Kart, you can drive around without crashing into any walls or other players quite easily, but this, you crash into 99.9% of all things that are there. That's for the Wii edition, not sure what the Xbox edition is like.
Don't buy it, unless you only want gamerpoints, then go ahead. I had this game since 2010 and only just sold it at CEX, only ever played it once or twice, then it just got really boring. Besides Sonic Rush for the DS, this was the only Sonic game I owned (Not including the 2008 & 2012 Olympics crossover games)
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.
I'll admit; this game is WAY too difficult at times.
But you know what? I'd easily put it among the greatest racing games of all time.
In fact, it might actually be THE best, since literally every track is a flipping rollercoaster in this game - xandermartin98
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.
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
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
THIS GAME IS NOT BAD!
It IS, bad controls, lack of character selection, only 5 tracks, very low poly models and more. - MinecraftHaterV 1 Comment
Wait, why the hell am I in a car? And that's why sonic drift sucks - Sanicball
How dare you... - MinecraftHater
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!
Uh it's a ripoff this game is terrible it rippedoff Mario kart and it's boring - MinecraftisawesoneV 2 Comments
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.
The controls are bad,but game is goodV 3 Comments
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
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
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.

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

This game is unbelievably bad in every conceivable way.
What? This is a great game. Don't get me wrong, its nowhere near as good as Crash Team Racing, but its not terrible
An hero yourself.
This is one of the better racers on the PS vita.
It's literally a remaster of the psp version. - 8chAnonymous
@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
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
Really? Who put this here?
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
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.
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.
It's bad and it's an LJN game, enough said
Very complicated game play. What were they thinking? - SelfDestruct
HOW MANY KART GAMES DOES Mario NEED!?!?
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?
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
Is my 2nd favorite Mario kart game!
The items suck in the game! That why I turn off the items!
Despite many karts/bikes per character, the game play was poor and it was really confusing how to use the new items. - SelfDestruct
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.

Yeah right, I bet you think this game is bad. - 8chAnonymous
1 was the start, two was fun but buggy, three was epic (but cut back), four revolutionised, and five is good (except that dumbass levelling up bull…)
