+1 on Burnout Paradise and Pacific Rift.

Both titles are amazingly fun. If forced to choose one then it would depend on if you play with friends. I find that Burnout Paradise is awesome fun with friends.

Burnout Paradise = Freeroam gameplay
Pacific Rift = Laid out traditional races

I would choose between one of these, you will not be disappointed with either!

Thats my 2cents

Baja shows downhill pretty long distance and feels good like very deep GameSpot Video: Baja: Edge of Control Official Movie 9 does Pacific Rift have that long deep downhill too?

GT5 Prologue is crap, NFS Undercover is crap and Burnout Paradise is crap. I am disappointed to say that I actually paid for the first two.

I'd say Burnout Paradise or Midnight Club, but mostly Burnout haha. It's really crazy and is as much about wrecking your opponents as out manovering them, there is also loads of free dlc and now some not free dlc coming out that looks nice. MC:LA offers a more traditional street racing game that is very fun and allows a lot of customization, it also has some free and non-free dlc that add more cars and areas to race in.

Pacifit Rift I've heard is very fun but I haven't played it myself so I can't comment on it.

What makes you think GT5 Prologue is crap? I've seen videos and stuff and damn, it's so good! NFS Undercover is crap because of all the glitches that it has and the gameplay. NFS Most Wanted was one of the best NFS game ever.

@OP. As others said, check out Midnight Club. It looks very promising.

Anyways....here's a drifting PV made by a Japanese GT5 player. ENJOY!
