Burnout Paradise Remastered

Burnout Paradise Remastered

Everyone remembers the legendary Burnout Paradise from 2008; it was a defining title for most gamers as they witnessed one of the greatest car games to ever brace the world of racing. Burnout Paradise Remastered is EA's attempt to revive the once-popular game, and you have to give credit to them as they have done an amazing job.

Burnout Paradise is unlike most games on this list as it takes away the realistic factor in a racing game and replaces it with dangerous driving, unreal stunts and absolute mayhem and destruction. The game can be played on the PS4 at 1080p resolution, and if by chance you have a PS4 Pro you can experience the full 4k 60 FPS experience.

The game supports over 150 different vehicles that can be trashed to your heart's content on both the multiplayer and online! The online game modes support up to 8 players at a time, letting your whole squad rollup for a ride. Although it is the same plot based in Paradise City, there is something in it that absolutely captivates the player as you experience the title with cleaner graphics and better-defined gameplay. This makes the game a must-have if you were a fan of the original game or if you just want a break from reality and want to blow up some cars.

Need for Speed Heat

Need for Speed Heat - takes place in the fictional Palm city with progressive gameplay

Check Price on Amazon

No list that involves car games will ever be complete without a Need for Speed title in it. Developed by EA games, Need for Speed Heat takes place in the fictional Palm city and takes the usual progressive story-driven gameplay. Palm City is made to represent Miami, Florida and has noticeable similarities.

The game takes on the true NFS theme and playstyle with the player required to tussle around with the law as they pit their luck against racers. Sanctioned races take play during the day and unsanctioned street races at night (it would not be Need for speed without some illegal street racing). With over 125 vehicles from 33 automakers available for the player to pick from, including the Ferrari series that was suspiciously missing in Need for Speed Payback the new Need for Speed Heat is sure to boost you to the edge of your seat.

With the usual NFS reputation system, a wide customisation platform and time tested bad boy racer theme Need for Speed Heat is sure to be a thriller for anyone interested.

Wreckfest - it is about being as destructive as possible and piling up those wreckages along the way

Check Price on Amazon

Read the title? Quite a fitting title for a game of such as it describes what it is quite perfectly! Wreckfest is not about being graceful or doing those cool 250 Kmph drifts; it is about being as destructive as possible and piling up those wreckages along the way. This is a no-rules game meaning that there is nothing holding you back. Do what you got to do to make sure you get to the finish line first (and intact).

The combative car game features derby arenas with crazy tracks or intersections packed with traffic for added destruction! Even though the concept seems a bit goofy and superficial, Wreckfest is surprisingly in-depth with a plethora of customisation options that range from reinforced bumpers, side protectors to roll cages. It is all about creating the perfect mean-machine. Players can even fiddle around with more technical and mechanical aspects of their ride, from air filters, fuel systems to camshafts and more.

If you are up for a bit of variation, the game even features different modes, where you can wreck crop harvesters, school buses, lawnmowers three-wheelers and many more vehicles of your imagination. It even hosts an online game mode where you can take out that pent up rage on unsuspecting players online! If you like cars, if you like destruction, if you do not like rules, then this is definitely the game for you.

It is quite difficult, to sum up, a list of the best car games for the PS4 at a single attempt as there are many more titles worth mentioning such as NASCAR Heat 4, The Crew 2, Need For Speed Payback and many more. But we feel like these titles hold a definitive standpoint as they break down car games to their respective genres such as simulators, racing, offroad drivers and such, much better than the other titles involved.
