DriveClub and Season Pass only £9.99

If you've been waiting for the right time to pounce on a DriveClub deal, now's the time. This PSN offer sees the full game and the Season Pass selling for just £9.99 if you're a PS+ member.

Sony and Evolution Studios have been hard at work since launch and the game's online issues (it was practically impossible to get online for the first two weeks) have been patched, meaning this is much closer to the driving game that was originally promised. The track design is exceptional both in terms of layout and visual class. Loading times for the single-player races are super fast too. The handling can be a mixed bag and the penalty system takes a while to adjust to, but this is well worth a look and setting online challenges for other users is competitive bliss. Later patches have also included rainy weather effects (I've never seen better) and there are a few extra events and vehicles available for free in the store too.

Thanks to Chanchi32.

Forza 6 down to £26.85 on Xbox One

With the latest Need for Speed being a murky mess, we'd recommend the much sunnier scenes of Forza 6. This deal is the best price we've ever seen too as it smashes the sub-£30 barrier at just £26.85. This comes with a DLC code for the Subaru WRXSTi.

Read my Forza Motorsport 6 review to see how impressed I was with with the game. Here's a taste: "Say hello to Forza 6, this generation's finest racer. Turn 10's racer certainly has the looks, but it's the raw speed and intuitive handling that make the occasionally over-long races thrilling from start to finish.

£8.95 is a great price for Gran Turismo 6

Expect a typically long wait for Gran Turismo on PS4. It's not all bad though if you're PS3 hasn't been boxed up yet at Gran Turismo 6 is super cheap nowadays. A track editor companion app was recently added too.

GT6 doesn't try to make any concessions to keep up with the pack, so it's just one for the series fan to be honest. That said, the simulation driving model is excellent and the visuals push the PS3 to the limit. The AI is as dull as ever, but Gran Turismo has never really been about adrenaline, instead it focuses on the tiny details of each car.

Thanks to Lomi.

WRC 5 down to £21 on Xbox One

Really desperate for a rallying game on your Xbox One? Well, this is your only option. Thankfully., it's seen some dramatic discounting since release.

I wasn't impressed with this one much and would advise waiting for Sebastien Loeb Rally or whatever Codemasters eventually bring to new-gen consoles. Here's a short version of my reviewWRC 5 patronises gamers with hollow victories amidst a game full of painted-on features. It's a shame, as the track design is suitably stuffed with tight corners surrounded by car-shredding traps. Car handling is up to the task, if a little lacking in speed and excitement. You're better waiting for 2016's rally games.

Get The Crew on PS4 for just £5

That's not a typo, you really can order a copy of The Crew on PS4 for just £5. It's a preowned copy, but at this price, we're not bothered one bit.

At this price, we think The Crew is more than worth a look, especially if you're a fan of huge open world games and the idea of driving across America sounds like a great way to spend a few weeks. Once you're done, you may want to check out the new Wild Run expansion DLC.

Need for Speed Review - Burnt out

Need for Speed Review - Burnt out

The Need for Speed series has struggled to find an identity for years, despite takes by numerous developers. Between the forgotten titles, we've had the Fast and the Furious-inspired Underground, the cops vs racers of Hot Pursuit (twice), the straight-faced track racer Shift and the open-world attempt by Criterion in Most Wanted.

This latest game has had an extra year of development, breaking the habit of releasing a NFS game every year. The subtitles are gone, 2015's game is simply Need for Speed. Although, given the nature of the game, EA must have been pretty tempted to call it Need for Speed: Underground 3.

Need for Speed Review - Burnt out

The emphasis is once again on the street racing and car modification culture, which is something many fans have been crying out for. What they've not asked for is an intrusive story, putting you in the shoes of a new racer, invited to hang with a crew that worship the ground you walk on like a tire-shredding messiah.

A rough start isn't always a bad thing, sometimes it leads to some sweet discounting and DriveClub is now cheaper than ever before at this price. Grab a preowned copy now for just £9.99 (scroll down a bit on the retailer's page), saving you a good few quid over a new copy.

WRC 5 Review - A dirty old clunker

Rallying used to be king of the racers in gaming, but just like real rallying, it's seen its audience dwindle to a fraction of the glory days. A fact not helped by Codemasters bastardising their own franchise by unleashing Ken Block's show-ponying over actual racing.

The second wave of WRC titles (Sony had a WRC series on PS2) performed admirably last-gen though, despite always being in the shade of Dirt 2. Milestone were a bit cheeky though, recycling some tracks in their annual release and stripping down the career mode to its bare bones.

WRC 5 Review - A dirty old clunker

This year though, for the series' (and indeed the genre's) next-gen debut, we have Kylotonn Games taking over, a studio whose only other racing title was the critically mauled Motorcycle Club, a game currently rocking a 26 on Metacritic. The good the news is that WRC 5 is much better, the bad news though is that this isn't the new-gen rally game you've been waiting for.

Forza 6 gets lowest price yet

This price is made all the sweeter by the fact it's actually the 10 Year Anniversary Edition. This includes ten extra cars with unique anniversary liveries and they'll already be highly tuned. Amongst others, you'll find the likes of the 2012 BMW M5, 2005 Honda NSX-R, 2013 McLaren P1, and the 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4. Note: the packaging is in Nordic, but the game's english.

Project Cars only £15.99 on PC

Project Cars is easily the best multi-platform racing game available, not that the competition is huge. This is a great price for the PC version too This is £8 cheaper than the next best deal.

Project Cars likes to sit more on the simulation side of the track, but there are plenty of driving aids to ease newcomers into the experience and it's incredibly satisfying as you slowly adapt and turn more of them off when you tame the wild vehicles. A worthy alternative to the likes of DriveClub and Forza. Check out Jon's review for more information.

Forza Motorsport 6 Review - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

It's all about speed and control. Speed is that vital ingredient to racing games that has us coming back for more. Just how fast can we go and stay in control? Maintaining control of the car, holding a fragile grip on the road just long enough to hold the line around that corner is all that matters. Speed and control make every corner a fight, a neck-and-neck paint-trading tussle between you and your fear of flying off the track or braking too soon and losing ground on the chase and that all-important speed. Forza 6 nails speed and control.

There's a sweet spot to be found in Forza 6, where you're challenged just enough by the AI and the driving aids are tuned to ensure every race is an exhilarating adrenaline rush. That's not to say the AI difficulty options are completely reliable though. Sometimes you'll go from winning multiple tight races in a row only to find the next one has the two lead cars are so far in front of you, you'll think you're in first until you notice the 3/24 indicator in the corner.

Forza Motorsport 6 Review - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

For the most part though, the difficulty evens out and with so many settings, there really is something for all players. Usually in racing games, rubber-banding in the AI means you always have a chance of catching up. Forza 6 says pish to this, although it's happy to keep a racer or two right behind you, even letting them magically catch up over half a lap if you shunt them into the gravel and tyres.
