Fantastic reality, amazing racing!
This is my first racing game on the iPad and it is nothing short of a fantastic experience.
I am only at the Rookie level of cars – a Golf GTi – but nonetheless, the level of detail and realism, leading to an engaging racing experience, is astonishing.
Ambient music when about to race, buying parts for the car or reviewing a race; exhaust note when changing up or down through the gearbox; engine sounds from other cars in close proximity (behind/alongside left or right); skid/braking marks on the Tarmac; body roll when reviewing cornering; a noticeable improvement in performance after purchasing accessories and hanging/falling debris (mirrors and bumpers) following an on-track skirmish are all details that really make you feel as though you are driving that car. I almost forgot to mention the realistic sounds of the rumble strip as each one is drive over in realtime or reviewed.
Well done for offering a realistically engaging driving experience.
My only criticism, if you could call it that, is the wooden trackside audience. On some circuits, the audience in some of the stands look like cardboard cut outs but it is a very small niggle in what is an otherwise immersive sensation. I'D PAY DOUBLE OR TRIPLE FOR THIS GAME. Well done developers.
I'm not really that into iOS games even though I've bought loads because I have a PS3 and would much prefer to play that, I'm also not keen on the controls as I don't get any tactile feedback.
Real Racing 2 HD has just changed my mind on what can be achieved with iOS games. What the developers have created here with the limitations of the hardware available is quite phenomenal. I love this game and am really into it, most iOS games don't really hold my attention for too long but this is different.
Another thing I have major issues with is tilt controls but the developers have implemented the steering so well using tilt I much prefer it to the on screen steering wheel as an option and that's really saying something coming from me.
I'm still going through the career mode and have yet to try multiplayer which I'm very much looking forward too...need some more practice first and need a higher spec car no doubt!
I only downloaded this because it was on sale and is always in Apple marketing so thought I'd give it a try and am so pleased I did. The developers have really set the bar for other game developers and if this is a taste of what's to come on iOS then it's very exciting.
I've also checked out some footage for Real Racing 3 and that looks amazing and will definitely be a first day download for me having played this one.
If you like racing games you could do a lot lot worse than to give Real Racing 2 a bash....outstanding game.
RR2HD on new iPad blows away other racing games
I've had this game since it was released, on iPad 1, the performance was poor and the anti-aliasing wasn't enabled, however, since playing it on iPad 2, it is absolutely amazing, performance is silky smooth, the "jaggies" are gone and the handling is so precise with the gyro, I'd recommend this game if you have an iPad 2, but I would encourage iPad 1 users to steer clear (excuse the pun) :-D
Edit: just got an HDMI adapter for my iPad 2, it doesn't mirror it, it plays it in true 1080p while delivering telemetry data on the iPad screen, this has made the game even better, WIN!
Edit2: installed again on new iPad, looks and feels fantastic, however the framerate has dropped considerably during the intro car selection and photo mode, photo mode also crashes the app when I take a photo, but it doesn't bother me that much as I can screenshot, the framerate needs to be improved though, good work though Firemint.
