    I searched for this in the hopes of finding a sweet new racing game and I realized I already had 5 out of the 10 games. I highly recommend NFS Hot Pursuit. GT Racing: Motor Academy is very fun but a little glitchy, and the system of leveling up is a bit irritating, considering it is based more on upgrades rather than winning races. NFS Undercover is a lot of fun and I have no issues with the game, but if you like straight up circuit style racing, then Shift is more for you. Ferrari GT Evolutions is pretty good, but it can get old after a while, but is a must have for die hard Ferrari fans like me.  Overall, my ranking of the games I have would be:
    1. NFS Hot Pursuit2. NFS Undercover3. GT Racing: Motor Academy4. NFS Shift5. Ferrari GT Evolution

    Hope this helps!

    I forgot to mention that NFS Hot Pursuit is by far and away the most addicting of the games that I have played.  Even after beating both cop and racer campaigns I continue to replay levels over and over… and over… Never gets old!
