Best arcade racer on PS3?

^It's in the title^

I wasn't impressed with Racedriver:Grid and was thinking of splashing out on GT5 Prologue as it's only £14.99.

I know it's only cheap but it's a big disapointment.
I am a big fan of the previous Gran turismo series and looked forward to playing it as were my sons.
All three of us were totally under whelmed.
There's no sensation of speeed at all,it's all soooo sloooow.
Making alterations to your cars is a bit long winded as well as you have to access 'my page' or the garage first.
Still that's only three peoples opinion and although most reviews do agree that there are problems it still averages 7.7 to 8/10.

Well I'm sure I could have spent £13 on something more entertaining... I almost fell asleep on the long stretch of the first lap on the first """race""".

Any suggestions?

It's only a personal opinion but i really enjoy ridge racer 7 on the PS3.
I know it's an old format but two player mode is great fun and drifting around corners at speed is a thrill trying to master.
Also at around £14.00 it can't be bad.
Reviews are around 7 to 8/10
Burnout paradise is insanely fast and utter carnage,though at around £40.00 i would wait for a price drop.
Reviews average around 8 to 9/10
