    Hi all, one of my work mates has just bought a PS3 and would like to know if there are any good two player offline (split screen) racing games out there.

    Ive looked at Motorstorm and F1 but they dont have that option. Does DiRT have split screen? Is there any other games I could recommend to him?

    Thanks for any advise/opinions :smashin:

    No split screen on Dirt mores the pitty.

    Top game but in it seems most PS3 games seem to be going for multiplayer as online only at present but hopefully that will change.

    Ridge Racer 7

    looking forwards tothe new Need for Speed through...I haven't bought any new games for yonks none of them seem to be worth spending £50 on. MGS4 looks like the one to get...if anyone has any decent sugestions I am open to them.

    played a demo of Dirt and the graphics are top notch and the handling of the cars is so realistic - comparing it to the Sega demo miles beter, the Sega one seemed very arcadey and, dare I say it, not even as good as the rally racs on GT4

    Can someone please recommend a good motor racing game for the PS3 that lets two people race head to head. I have looked but can't seem to find a game that offers this feature.

    Thankyou

    I bought Sega Rally for this feature. Some people will vouch for it, but I found the handling so bizarre that i have since sold it on. What's embarassing is that the default controller setup is forced upon controller 2: and the default controller settings involve using the shoulder buttons to accelerate.:thumbsdow
    If you like very arcade handling (never press brake or release the accelerator) and are happy to use R2 to accelerate, then it does have a split screen which runs seemlessly.
    So far I only had COD4 and VT3 as multiplayer games: I would also be interested in a racing game for MP>

    Narrowed it down to;

    Ridge Racer
    F1
    N4S Carbon
    N4S Pro Street

    Obiivusly GT5 will be the one to get next month, but I need somthing to play with my little bro in split screen, which should I get. I am looking for one that will have good split-screen play.

    In RR and F1 can you assign the controls so Accelerate and Brake is R2/L2 as opposed to X/[] in the demos.

    completed dirt a few weeks ago. took about 7 hours (ish) Throroughly enjoyed the game, and as a SP its probably the best racing game going.
    I bought this game with the presumption it was MP (without checking lol :suicide:) but was only dissapointed for about 2 minutes until i saw the graphics! :D VERY impressed.

    Maybe you should think outside the box - people do jeep racing in Warhawk (no shooting obviously). It's got upto 4-player splitscreen, and you can go online too! Start a match, wait for everyone to get their jeep to the assigned startpoint, then race to a designated end point :thumbsup:

    Just got Ridge Racer 7, there are no AI opponents in split screen :mad:

    On the back of the F1 box it does state it has 2player mode - does it also have AI racers as well?

    Looks like I am going to have to get... dare I say it... :suicide:
    Need for Speed, and I hate that type of game (inc Juced).

    I'm not sure which F1 game you are referring to as the F1 Championship dition for the PS3 is strictly 1 player only !

    Sony still hold the rights but i don't think they are making one.

    they should really do some sort of PSN update for the new cars and tracks.

    I want to pretend to be lewis hamilton

    Sorry to dredge up such an old thread, but this is exactly what I'm looking for at the moment...a good racing game that offers split screen racing without going online. Need it for when my nephews come round so we can have some head-to-head battles....obviously I'll need to spend a lot of time practising in secret first so I can beat them!!! :rotfl:

    Are there any new games out that have good graphics and split-screen option?
