What's New in Version 1.2
Support for Game Controllers (Gamepads and Extended Gamepads)
This has got to be one of, if not THE best racing apps available!
I enjoy it so much that I even went to my local Apple Store and purchased the SteelSeries Stratus wireless controller just for this game. Of course the controller can be used for many other games as well.
Just check the website given in the instructions for compatible games.
I find that the controller adds another element of fun
and dexterity to this outstanding game.
One thing you should know though is that the controller is NOT compatible with the first, original version of Riptide. But Riptide 2 supports it fully.
The graphics and audio of both Riptide 1 and 2 are outstanding! It even looks like your screen is cracked when you crash!
Obviously I highly recommend this app and if you really want to enjoy it and quite a few other games, get the SteelSeries Stratus controller too.
It comes in 2 sizes.
I also purchased the SteelSeries Siberia v2 Pro Gaming special edition Red
The sound is just totally remarkable! The engine sounds, the splashing water, sound as if they're inside your head.
I've never experienced the realism
this game provides with these headphones. ( plus, my wife doesn't have to hear it while she reads ).
Summary: get this game
( and the controller & headphones ) --- you won't
Think Hydro Thunder meets Jet Moto but better!!
I had a hankering to play some Hydro Thunder or find a newer game like it a while back, and after connecting a few dots, I ended up discovering Riptide GP2 on the App Store. I was happily surprised by the game's depth and customization, not to mention beautiful graphics. Multiple control options are definitely a plus, too, since that can make or break smart phone games. Fortunately, the risk-vs-reward stunt system, money and star rewards for unlocking content, solid design, and challenging races provide some real meat to sink your teeth into, whereas many iOS games are only fun in short bursts. Put simply, it's the best racing experience I've had on an iPhone, and it plays to the platform's strengths instead of trying to fudge console mechanics with a touchscreen controller.
5 Stars for the graphics alone!
Add in the character customization, the amazing water physics, and the fact that IAP's are available but not pushed on you, and you have one excellent game that any fan of the racing genre should own. Especially if you like water-based ones. I had a jet ski racing game for the PS2 I think it was, and I played it to death. This game brings me right back there and simply put, it's a blast!
Any developers reading this, please do us all a favor and take a lesson from Vector Unit. Any potential customers and fellow haters of the freemium business model reading this, please support these developers and rest assured you won't be pressured/suckered into dropping dollar after dollar on measly currency packs that don't go nearly far enough. I'm looking at you, Asphalt 8!
