That is a hard question to answer and it really depends on what you find fun in a car and driving game.

I am more drawn to the Forza Motorsport series which is much more simulated racing.
So really when it comes to deciding the best Xbox racing game, its a matter of what are you looking for. Are you looking for off road action with heavy drifting and limited damage or do you want something that makes you feel like a real race car driver?
