5 racing games that nailed realistic driving physics – and 3 that didn't


Microsoft's Forza series is found wanting in much the same way as its Playstation cousin. Despite the prestige brand and sleek marketing, ultimately Forza 5 on Xbox One is 'sim-cade' at best.

That's not to say the game is without merit – it's received plaudits for its graphics, online play and breadth of customisation options – but ultimately the wheels come off when it comes to the realism of its in-game physics.
