Controller Compatibility

The list below is color-coded as follows:
1Works with the PS1/PS2 Game Controller only.
2Works with the PS1/PS2 Game Controller, and Logitech Rally (standard game controller port) wheel.
3Works with the PS1/PS2 Game Controller, Logitech Rally, and Logitech Driving Force (USB port) wheel.
3*  Same as 3, but Driving Force only works when plugged into USB port 2.
Note that games/sims that work with the Logitech Rally should also work with other steering wheels that connect to a standard PS1/PS2 game controller port, and games/sims that work with the Logitech Driving Force should also work with other steering wheels that connect to a USB port.

The bullets have the following meaning:
  The sim has a webpage of its own on this site.
The game/sim shares a webpage with other games/sims.
The game/sim is a DNF (Did Not Finish) or DNS (Did Not Start).

Unless otherwise noted (in parentheses), the titles below are car racing sims for the Sony PlayStation2.

In the list above, my favorites are the ones with a solid bullet (). Those are the ones I've spent the most amount of time on and, hence, there will be more info on those than others. As the list above shows, my preference tends to lean towards simulations of real-life circuit racing. I like cars that were specifically built to race with and tracks that were specifically built to race on.

The games/sims with a half-shaded bullet () are ones that I've collected data on, but not necessarily played much. In general, if a game/sim's info includes a "Quirks And Features" and/or "Miscellaneous" section, it means I've spent a fair amount of time on it. Otherwise, if there's only a car/bike and/or track list, it means I haven't really played it much but just collected the lists for comparison purposes.

The games/sims with a hollow bullet () are ones that, for one reason or another, I never finished or never even started. I'm not a big fan of arcade games or illegal street racing games, so those will probably be left on the shelf for an indefinite period of time. Others, however, may just be new additions to my collection that I haven't gotten around to trying out yet.

The "Race Driver" and "Grid" Series

For some strange reason, Codemasters uses different names for the same sims of the Race Driver series. Depending on which part of the world you live in, the Race Driver series may be known as any one of the following (these are just the ones that I know of, and there may be others):

NameRegion
  DTM Race Driver  Most parts of Europe
  Pro Race Driver  North America
  ToCA Race Driver  United Kingdom
  V8 Supercars Race Driver  Australia

The inconsistent naming of the titles in the Grid series is equally confusing. Looking at the official names, it isn't really clear that these are all part of the same series. Another thing that's unclear (to me, anyway) is whether the Grid series is part of the Race Driver series (of which, there are 3 that I know of); if so, Race Driver GRID could've been named Race Driver 4.

Official NameIdeal Name
  Race Driver GRID  Grid 1 or Race Driver 4
  GRID 2  Grid 2 or Race Driver 5
  GRID Autosport  Grid 3 or Race Driver 6
