A phenomenal racing game

Real Racing 2 has many diferent things that seperate from other racing games: 1. Good Graphic 2. A career mode 3. Many, many cars and car brands to chose from. And 4. Multiplayer (online only) All these things make one of the best racing apps ever. Now, let me give you a few pros and cons. Pros - 1. Basically everything in the game 2. Uh…..there’s really nothing else for pros. Everything in the game is well designed. Now for the cons. There is only 1 and also 1 sort of con if you know what I mean. Cons - 1. You can only race multiplayer online which was really a bad mistake by the company who made Real Racing 2 because if your friends or family don’t have this game you can’t play with them. 2. (this is the sort of con) There isn’t really drifting capabilities on this game and the steering is pretty sensitive but, you can go to the settings and change the steering sensitivity, brake assist ect. Well thats all you need to know about Real Racing 2. Have fun!

Glorified iPhone game

Lots of complaints….

Controls are just bad. It uses auto-accelerate, so you’re either flat out or braking. They offer four control options: controller (don’t have one), trackpad (OK, found myself using this the most, but not easy to aim the car into a turn), WASD (choppy turning, can’t adjust angle), or iPhone (just didn’t work).

Other cars don’t know how to race. I found myself getting hit a lot by the other cars. If I was passing on an inside line with the right of way, I’d always get hit by the car I was passing. They don’t know how to brake or take a turn either, so when you’re following them they brake too early and you ram right into them. The frustrating bit about this is that the other cars always seem to recover faster from these crashes.

My other complaint is that you qualify for every race in last place, which means in a field of 16 cars you have to pass 15 to win. This wouldn’t be such a huge problem, except the races are relatively short and the other cars are terrible at racing, so it’s so much of a challenge just to pass them.

If you’re looking for a decent racing sim, don’t waste your money. This is on par with a 2 dollar iPhone app.

Disappointed

Initially disappointed; maybe as I play I will become more satisfied. I am a huge fan of the old Need for Speed franchise on PC, and after playing some of Real Racing 3 on my iPhone, I was had my hopes up that this would be a reasonable stand-in for Need for Speed on my Mac. Unfortunately, that has not been my experience so far.

Probably my biggest complaint so far is that this feels like an iPhone game stuck on a Mac (which I guess it really is). All of the weirdness of iPhone racing games, such as auto-acellerate, no option to manually shift, etc, are fully engaged by default, even with a gamepad. Turning off the assists and turning down the sensitivity of the steering have helped tremendously, but the game still feels awkward on a Mac with a gamepad. Maybe my impression with change as I play it more.

Ultimately what I want is a first class racing app on a Mac. I keep hoping, I keep trying the occassional one out, and I keep being disappointed. And this one is no exception.
