Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3 is bound to keep gearheads entertained. It puts real brand-name cars on real-world tracks - hence the name. It features an interesting asynchronous multiplayer system whereby lap times are recorded from your friends, and you race against a bot that's driving at that time. Of course you can bump them out and affect their track time, and there's a single-player career worth playing through too. Over time, players earn new cars and can upgrade various mechanical bits with their winnings, but make sure you take it easy on your car - you'll have to keep your ride in good condition to avoid repair costs.

Real Racing 3 is absolutely gorgeous, and the white-knuckled racing action will keep you coming back for more.
