Not sure how a game with unmoderated chat can be classified for kids 4+. Chat is full of swearing? Game is passable for my kids but the language and tones used on chat makes it unplayable for them. Totally unsafe kids talking to adult strangers. I have had to delete it, wasting my money.

A Classic


This is a classic racer, I haven't had this much fun since the original Super Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo. It has the perfect balance of being easy to learn, but hard to master. The hillbilly theme, the characters and music are perfectly suited - the devs nailed the concept. The graphics are pure eye candy. The tracks are expertly designed, and the mechanics and physics are great. There are many subtleties which bring the game to life, from little sounds like your suspension buckling as you go over a bump to the sunshine filtering in through the tress, which all add up to make the gameplay more immersive.

My only minor critisicsm is that the a.i. on the gold difficulty could be a little harder, as its too easy to beat....but it doesnt really matter as its the online multiplayer that keeps you coming back for more, and more...and more. Other reviews say there isn't enough tracks, and I agree somewhat, a new track every few months would be a nice addition, and I would happily pay per track...however I think the devs are working on Reckless Racing 2, so thats fair enough imo. There could be a couple more music tracks...the ones that are there are awesomely deliverance-y and superb, but they do get a tad repetitive. I would also like to see a few more jumps and high risk, high reward shortcuts.

I don't leave many reviews, but this is a standout game, a classic imo.... and I can't recommend it enough.

Just Brilliant!

I think that this is just about as good a game as you could possibly make in this style. The top down view has been enhanced to include some camera tracking which is very cool, and the blend of Tarmac, dirt, gravel, and ice make for really great variation. The races are good, but the online leader board and challenging yourself to get in the top 1000 or even 500 have kept me hooked day after day.

I would conceivably change only two things, to have cars that performed marginally better or worse on different tracks, and the ability to search for my friends best times so I could race them offline so to speak, and then trash talk them when I knew I had just beaten them.

This is surely one of the top iOS games, and reminds me of the classic Super sprint, but about 10,000 times better. Big up to the developers, you have my vote!
