Excellent arcade port
As someone who has never played the arcade original but does have some experience with laserdisc based games, I have to say that Revolutionary Concepts has done a marvelous job with this app. The graphics are pixel perfect for the era. Gameplay also seems to be a perfect port. Controls work well. I did have some issues with turning left or right quickly, but I think this has more to do with my own timing rather than a fault of the game. The devs wisely allow the player to start the game on any previously completed level. Gamecenter achievements and leaderboards are also a plus. Overall, a great arcade adaptation.
Good, but broken
I was a HUGE fan of the Sega CD version of this game, and while the iOS version looks absolutely beautiful the controls are borderline broken. Even on beginner difficulty, there are times when the game will absolutely not recognize your moves no matter what you do. The tilt controls are slightly better than the touch controls, but even then there are enough times where the game will not recognize a correct move no matter how early you make it. I don't really understand how a Sega CD FMV game from the 90s can control better than a 2011 upgrade, yet that is clearly the case here. I wish I could rate this higher, because again it looks gorgeous, but this game is at times completely unplayable. I will rate this higher if a fix is released.
Awesome. This is how you improve on a retro title. Everything from the new dash with steering wheel, very good tilt controls, to the new sounds and gamecenter makes this old classic really shine!
Obviously not for children like the guy below moaning it aint RealRacing (his only other 'review') or wah 'it's too hard for my lowly skills'. But if you love Japanese Animation and Retro Gaming and you are in for a treat!
10 stars to make up for that clowns 1.
