Gran Turismo Sport

Whether or not it's a "true" franchise sequel, Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo Sport is fantastic. It is sharp in its focus on photo-realism, which is aided by electricity.

Project CARS 2

Slightly Mad Studio deserves some credit for creating its own series of realistic racing sims in a world dominated by Forza and Gran Turismo.

Forza Motorsport 7

Similar to Gran Turismo Sport, realism is key to Forza Motorsport 7's visual style. It achieves it at 1080p and at a rock-solid 60 fps even on the base Xbox One.

Forza Horizon 4

Compared to the Forza Motorsport series, Forza Horizon is all about creating a large, wide open world with many cars and activities.

DriveClub

What else can we say about DriveClub that hasn't already been said? Its weather effects are beautiful, from heavy fog to snow, that get even better after launch with dynamic weather.

Need For Speed (2015)

Strange as it may sound, Ghost Games' Need for Speed title from 2015 still looks great today.

DiRT 4

Codemasters is no slouch when it comes to its flagship DiRT series and DiRT 4 shows just how much progress the developer's EGO engine has made.

The Crew 2

The Crew 2 of Ivory Tower had a daunting task on its hands, what to make of it with all the different types of vehicles and large play space.

Dirt Rally 2.0

Codemasters do it again, this time adding physical based power for cars and track degradation (where tracks degrade in real time and can affect one's handling).

Xenon Racer

Car models are rife with details and particle effects. Especially when boosting feels good. The track and environment also sport good shadow quality.
