Surprisingly good


After 20 hours of playing, I thought winning Qvadriga was 90% luck, but I was wrong. I's more about skill and experience.
If you get a bad event and starting position, yes you can be out of the race before it even starts, but if you can stay in the race, and learn a few moves, you will win enough races to advance your team and gear. Like cards or dice, you must play your strengths when you can, and limit your losses when behind, using a variety of tools and strategies.

Fun but over priced


If you have ever played Avalon Hill's "Circus Maximus" then this is a must buy for you. This game is a very close representation of that awesome boardgame. The campaign mode in this app is a blast!
Having said that, if I could give this game a 4.5 I would. There are some clunky bits in selecting menu options and the price is ridiculous. If this game dropped its price it actually might sell but at 10 bucks the developers must not want to sell too many copies.

Easily worth the money


One of this simple to learn but hard to master type of games. It can bog down a bit if you aren't in the heat of the race, but overall it's great fun. It's cheap compared the the PC version as well. Highly recommended if you like strategy games.
