If you’ve got a friend or two to play with, then Street Racing Unleashed is a solid choice. Originally released back in 2013 by SecondLogic, it’s not as popular as it once was but has been played over six million times, which is a lot by Roblox standards. Visually the cars look like something out of a retro-futuristic 80s movie along the lines of Tron, and it all has a very distinct sense of style.
It wouldn’t be a list of Roblox games without at least one straight up ripoff, now would it? Creator Jovannicuz went and copied the exact abbreviation of Rockstar’s own Grand Theft Auto V for GTA 5 and I guess they always say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The game itself isn’t bad though and has some fun variations on cops and robbers game modes.
Not all racing games need cars to be fun. In Speed Run 4 you control your actual Roblox avatar on foot in this super fast-paced platformer/racing game hybrid. It’s been played over 222 million times and consistently has people playing it at all times of the day so you’re sure to find someone to race against.
Similarly, Roblox Deathrun doesn’t have any cars or other vehicles either. This award-winning Roblox game (Best Lobby, Favorite Maps, and Favorite Use of New Features BLOXY Awards and Action Game of the Year BloxCon Award) has a similar sense of speed but a lot more variety. You use your Roblox avatar in this one too.
Now for something completely different, Pacifico is all about relaxation. Take your time and drive up and down the coast or visit some shops in this beautiful California-style city. There’s plenty of racing to go around as well, in addition to an active roleplaying community that avidly frequents the game. It’s only been out for a few months and has already been played over six million times.
Jailbreak would be higher on this list (it’s officially the most-liked and most-favorited game on all of Roblox), but it isn’t really a racing game. It’s more like an open world GTA-style crime game that just so happens to feature lots of cars, busy streets, and racing mechanics. But Roblox is all about making something out of what you’ve got, so it only makes sense that one of its best racing games isn’t even a strict racing game at all.
Here we are back at it again with a racing game that doesn’t actually include any vehicles. Part of this trend is that players on Roblox really like to be able to see their custom avatars and Sprinting Simulator 2 is a great game to show them off. But this is a fast-paced thrill ride that’s all about speed and beating other players so naturally it makes the best racing game list.
Ultimate Driving is a whole series of games from TwentyTwoPilots that all take place in different areas around the world, but feature the same or similar driving mechanics. The environments are enormous and full of cars to drive and race, so it was a naturally good fit for this list if you’re a fan of realistic-style driving games.
Speed Race is the last and final game on this list that asks Roblox players to put their avatars on the line and battle outside of vehicles for glory. This game constantly has people playing it even though it was originally launched over four years ago and keeps going strong to this day with new content and updates. That alone deserves recognition.
Finally, the grand finale of the list, is our choice for the best racing game on Roblox: Vehicle Simulator. The physics system in Roblox is a bit wonky and hard to work with so anytime someone is able to make something this impressive and realistic, it absolutely deserves recognition.
