Am I missing something?
Having played and loved Real Racing 2, I tried Real Racing 3. As many have said, 3 is good, but a rip off as you have to buy cars etc if you don't want to spend all your spare time trying to progress. Disapointed. I thought I would try this original version. Sadly, it is lacking many of the improvements of RR2. The most frustrating asspect is that the steering seems to be over sensitive and does not behave anything like RR2 or a real car for that matter. I am sure with many hours of practice you could get used to it. I am an occaisional gamer not an addicted gamer. RR2 is spot on, its a shame they have not continued with this successful formula with more tracks and different cars. Very disapointed with this version and RR3, so I will delete them.
A non-gamer who is totally hooked
I have not seen a game that is even close to this on the iPad. Everything is amazing from the gameplay to the graphics, the physics, the sound and event the music would be worth having on it's own. I was never into race games but sit down with this game, put on a set of headphones and say goodbye to the world for a few hours, which has its downside on the tube though as I missed my stop twice!
Quite simply... Amazing. That's all there is to say! This game is by far the best game in the app store! Easily comparable to some xbox/ps3 games I know!
Stunning game, great physics, brilliant controls, graphics, sounds, everything is just superb!!
Don't hesitate! Just buy it! (unless you do something useful with your time, in which case don't get it, otherwise you'll be on it all day and all night, and won't get anything done!!!)
