Real Racing

This Firemint racing sim finally dropped and it is outstanding; tons of cars (48, although not licensed), tons of tracks (12), good controls (with several control types), good AI, decent feeling of speed (especially in cockpit view), and online league competition. The career mode is extensive, with almost 80 events in which to participate. An impressive local wifi multiplayer mode allows 6 players to battle it out. Yes, I wish it had a mini-map, but it’s a sim (and I’m a cry baby). This game raises the bar.

Update: Just a point of interest: the shipping version allowed 6 cars on-screen with no slowdown whatsoever, but the Firemint crew did a test to demonstrate the capabilities of the iPhone 3GS and they were able to handle 20 cars on-screen simultaneously!
