Split Second (Disney Interactive Studios, rated E10+ for players 10 and older, $59.99) — Help Dad take out his frustrations over driving on the Beltway with this spectacular, action-packed driving game. Players race under the guise of contestants in a reality television show and use power-ups to destroy massive obstacles and unleash huge explosions to disable and crash opponents’ vehicles. Up to eight players can battle online (two-player split screen) or the solo driver can work through 12 episodes of the show controlling a Hot Wheels fantasy world of high-speed cars in a variety of dangerous courses. Remember: If you can’t pass a driver, just drop a building on him.

ModNation Racers (Sony Computer Entertainment America, rated E for everyone, $59.99) — This highly addictive arcade kart-racing challenge gives up to 12 players the chance to create and customize too-cute avatars, slick vehicles and complex tracks as they become elite racers. The high-speed courses combine high-flying ramps, shortcuts and drifting galore with a generous supply of weapon power-up access to practically run a certain mustachioed plumber right off the road. It’s LittleBigPlanet meets Wacky Races with plenty of heated competition in the family entertainment room.

Lost Planet 2 (Capcom, rated T for teen, $59.99) — This cooperative third-person shooter for up to four players finds a group of Snow Pirates stuck — not on an icy planet, as in the original game — but rather within hostile desert and jungle environments as they fight to control a rich resource and survive. The battles with many-story-tall Akrid creatures are epic, the depths of upgrades to vital suits mind-boggling and the selection of weapons plentiful. Stunning graphics and sound effects, along with other multiplayer options (with five action characters from which to choose), add to the firefight fun while keeping Dad glued to his gaming recliner.
