We’ve been talking about Gran Turismo 5, Forza 3 and Need for Speed SHIFT so much we kind of feel bad that we’ve left other racing games out to dry.

In the midst of the hoopla surrounding the three aforementioned games, one game we haven’t gone on record as worth playing is Vertical Run, a racing game you can find in Sony’s Playstation Home community. The game is the first to be developed by ‘Audi Space’, which, if you don’t know, is Audi’s new virtual community inside the Playstation Home.

While it’s not in the class of GT5 or Forza 3, Vertical Run is a pretty fun game to play, especially if you’re the type who considers yourself a card-carrying member of the Wipeout franchise. The objective is pretty simple enough: all you need to do is win a race while zooming past a vertical course – hence, the name Vertical Run – while gathering the most electrical energy in the process. Simple enough, right?

The game becomes all the more exciting because of the presence of one car, the Audi E-Tron concept, which we first saw at the recently-concluded Frankfurt Motor Show. We don’t know whether or not the actual Audi e-tron concept actually makes it to production, so this may be the only chance we’ll ever get to see the car in a racing situation.
