And if you want to play not just the most realistic race games, but also the free racing games, then you should definitely check out this article.
Gear.Club – True Racing
Users claim that Gear Club is the best racing game in the industry with the most realistic graphics. Actually, we couldn’t agree more. Even if you’re not into racing games you will be mesmerized by the beautiful locations and exciting races with superior cars.
Another crucial point of Gear Club is its gameplay. Developers made everything in this game super-realistic – all the engines, car suspensions, and aerodynamic kits function just like in real life. Despite this fact, the game controls are easy to handle.
You just open the app and start a new game. At first, you get only one car, but as you are progressing you unlock more of them, just like in any other race game. And there is a traditional possibility to upgrade and revamp the car, however, some of them are paid.
If you don’t want to buy these additional items you can just switch the in-built purchases off inside the app.
On the other hand, because the game is at top-level in everything it requires very powerful hardware to be run. As you can see in the comments to this game, Gear Club has a tendency to crash or lag if the hardware isn’t powerful enough.

Real Racing 3
In this game, you will race on the specialized sports cars and if you’re a fan of those, this one’s definitely your option. According to the reviews of users and our own, the game feels extremely realistically, thanks to the high-end detailed graphics and well-executed animations.
The car models from the real-life manufacturers are presented in the game. Among them, you will find Ford, Aston Martin, McLaren, and others.
The racing tracks will be placed all around the world, so with each new level, you also unlock a new location.
But the main advantage of Real Racing 3 is that it is a multiplayer game. Thus, you can challenge your friends in real-time or just compete with random players all around the world. Up to 8 people can participate in a single race.
When your car gets damaged during the race, all the scratches and dents will be seen on your vehicle. This adds a realistic feeling to the game.
What is more, this game is more lightweight than other games on our list and doesn’t require the powerful hardware, that the 2 previous games do.

Car Racing or High on Fuel is less known than the games above, but it’s definitely worth your while as one of the most realistic racing games. You don’t expect that level of graphics as in Gear Club, for example, but what you get is also something.
You just start a new game and then customize your car, preparing it for the race. You will be competing in various locations and most of them will take place in megapolises. It’s important to notice here that the city surrounding is presented quite decently.
The animations and gameplay, in its turn, could be done better. The overall impression from the motion of the game is that sometimes it feels wooden, especially when you bump into other cars on the track. And after that, no damage is visible on both cars.
- Realistically looking cars and cities
- Not so realistic gameplay
- The game crashes on some devices

Dirt Bike Unchained
We suggest you also pay attention to the bike racing game which is no less fun than the car racing ones! Moreover, Dirt Bike Unchained is known for its perfect visuals and realistic gameplay.
First of all, you will be stroked by the beautiful scenery where the races take place. All the locations are projected in detail, and even the horizon is made in 3D when the majority of developers prefer not to focus on such aspects and just insert the 2D photos.
Considering the gameplay, the impacts of the surrounding are quite visible on the bike and the racer – the dirt sticks to the clothes and to the bike.
Before you start, you can customize both your bike and your costume. What is more, you will be gathering a team of mentors throughout the game so they can teach you the unique skills and help to defeat the other racers.
One dubious part of Dirt Bike Unchained is the game controls. The combination is not difficult, but sometimes it’s really tricky to manipulate the bike by just tapping on the screen.
And as you win the competitions, don’t forget to use the bonuses you get and improve your gear.
- Beautiful and realistic locations
- Realistic bikes and animations
- Difficult to handle

GRID™ Autosport Custom Edition
Another exquisite game about car racing. The advantage of this game is its abundance of various levels, variations of racing and diversity of cars.
The overall graphics level is similar to the High On Fuel game, the gameplay is a little bit better and more realistic.
By the way, this version of GRID Autosport is distinguished by the possibility to buy the additional racing tracks for the professional career inside the app.
Because of such a diversity of everything you might get confused when you open the app. We recommend to stick to the career mode,where you will be progressing in the game gradually, opening new locations and more challenging rivals.
In spite of this game has better graphics and gameplay than High On Fuel game, it is placed lower in our list because of its complicated and inconvenient controlling.
Before you’re able to start the game, you need to set it manually, and often the controls works incorrectly what makes it incredibly difficult to win the game.
Another possible drawback of GRID Autosport that it offer only about 10 percent of its possibilities for free. Also, be careful – the game can be run only on specific Android devices.
- High-end graphics
- Abundance of levels and game variations
- Difficult controls
- Lots of built-in purchases

By the way, considering the physics of the game, we didn’t see anything outstanding and everything is depicted closely to the real-life situation. There are obviously some moments that cross the line bu they are needed for the game to show off.
However, even here we managed to find some flaws – the main trouble starts when you are playing in multiplayer mode – various errors occur at the start, at the fishish and when the score is counted.
