9 Best PSP Racing Games of All Time

The PSP was a neat little handheld console that was a fun little way to pass the time during long commutes on the train, boring road trips in the minivan, and what seemed like endless waiting rooms at the doctor’s office. There were all sorts of games for it, but here are our top 9 PSP racing games you must play if you ever get your hands on this nifty device.

Need for Speed Carbon is a racing game that was released in 2006. It’s a PSP game, and you can’t ignore it.

The game has two different modes: Career mode and online multiplayer. In career mode, you can choose which car to buy and start winning races to earn money and unlock new cars, upgrades, and other stuff that helps you win more races. You can also play against other players online by racing them on tracks they’ve customized or on official courses from the game’s designers (called “blacklist” races).

This game has a pretty decent amount of content. There are five different races to choose from, each with its unique feel and style. You can also customize your car with decals and rims, which gives the game some replay value by trying out new combinations. The graphics are pretty good but not mind-blowing by any means. They will give you that arcade racer feeling, however!

The sound is excellent, too – it’s got a fantastic soundtrack (with every song available on Spotify) that makes you want to listen to it while chilling in your car at night under the stars. The controls are straightforward to pick up on, and there aren’t many buttons involved, so things remain simple here as well!

This one is worth checking out if you’re into racing games or want something fun for your PSP!

Moto GP is a motorcycle racing game for the PSP. It’s a racing game, so you can expect it to have all the things you’d expect from a racing game: fast motorcycles, exciting tracks, and great graphics. What makes Moto GP so unique? Well, it’s also a PSP game, which means it has all those things plus more!

  • The tracks are full of twists and turns—just like in real life.
  • The motorcycles go very fast—much faster than any other ever made before.
  • There are explosions everywhere when you crash into walls (often).

6. Burnout Dominator

Burnout Dominator is a racing video game developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. The fourth installment in the Burnout series was released for PlayStation Portable on September 12, 2007. It is the first game in the series to be released on PSP.

Burnout Dominator features a variety of modes that can be played online or offline (via ad-hoc wireless). The primary play mode involves competing against other racers for points awarded for completing events. Successful completion of an event is determined by how fast one finishes it and how many opponent vehicles were destroyed during this period.

There are also specific objectives within each race that can earn players even more points than if they simply finish first: knocking down opponents’ cars may cause them to lose control temporarily; driving through boost traps scattered throughout races earns brief bursts of speed; destroying billboards along the track will award additional cash (when viewed from overhead); hitting traffic cones gives bonus points as well, and destroying certain types of traffic vehicles nets extra money when viewed from overhead as well.

7. Asphalt Urban GT 2

Asphalt Urban GT 2 is a racing game where you race on urban streets. This PSP game features fast cars, various tracks, and modes to play with friends or against the computer.

It also has many customization options, so if you want to make your car look like a rainbow dragon with wheels that light up when they turn, Asphalt Urban GT 2 allows you to do just that!

8. Colin McRae Rally 2005 Plus

Colin McRae Rally 2005 Plus is a well-known racing game. It is the first edition of the series and was released on Play Station Portable. The plot of this game centers around the achievements of Colin McRae, a famous rally driver who won many championships and races for cars such as Ford Escort Cosworth and Subaru Impreza.

This game is highly addictive with its excellent graphics and sound effects, which are a treat to watch or listen to. It has different modes like career mode, where you can choose your favorite car model, driving style, and location to race across various terrains like the snow-capped mountains of Alaska or ice tracks in Sweden! You can also play against other people online using the internet connectivity feature offered by Sony Game Network Store (PSN).

The gameplay consists of six different stages where players have to complete challenges set by their opponent before they reach the finish line first without crashing into any obstacles on their way there like trees or rocks, etcetera! Each stage has its theme setting from ancient ruins in Egypt all over Europe until the sun sets at sunset time on an island somewhere far off from Australia!

9. Wipeout Pure

Wipeout Pure is a racing game for the PSP, released in 2006. Sony Computer Entertainment developed it.

The first title in the Wipeout series to be released in the US, it’s still considered one of the best games on this list because of its intense speed and difficulty level.
