Customer Reviews

My favorite racing game on IOS.

I got this game for free when it was very first released. I was about halfway though when my 3GS died and I realized I hadn't backed it up so when I got my new iPhone 4 I had to start all over again. Well, not anymore. I completed the game entirely today. I will agree that drifting is impossible to get 3 stars on, so here's my recommendation. Continue racing in what you have unlocked to get cash. Buy the best car in every class and fully upgrade it. Once you've done that start at the last events in class S buy racing to buy your way into them. Work your way down. You still earn stars and by starting in class S you will unlock the lower events as you go along. Eventually you will beat the game this way and doing it this way for me only took about 5-6 hours of total gameplay and I have everything unlocked and fully upgraded (Cars and tracks), and I never paid EA a cent. While the graphics in the asphalt series are better, this game is far better playability wise and I would pay $7.99 for something like this. Great in-game soundtrack too with actually pretty good quality. This is the only racing game I can play regularly that doesn't make me mad because its actually enjoyable. Tweak the drifting issue and you've got the best racing game ever for IOS. But, it already is the best racing game for IOS currently. The reward far outweighs the price they are currently asking for this game.

Game Needs for "Shift 2-3" || WHERE DO YOU RESTORE PURCHASES <-

Think Fonza Motorsport 4 and GT 5. This game is on its way to being thee car simulator app for iDevices. I believe it needs the "licensed car" setup where you can order and race with 125 plus licensed vehicles all throughout the globe including Ferrari, Mercedes, McLaren, etc. -> Create "many" tracks. I like the idea of Fonza Motorsport 4 with the tracks. There are tracks at famous locations such as Indianapolis 500 which make the experience way more enjoyable. Then combine custom tracks of fun, different and exotic locations. Many more cars + Many more tracks = endless fun an flexibility on presumably the best car simulator app for iDevices.

Whining about ads, laughable

I love laughing at these people whining about ads in games when there is a simple fix for it. Play in airplane mode, it even disables ads in free games as long as they are not online dependent.

Goes to show nts can't use logic to save their lives, and would rather shoot themselves in the foot do to the need for online features. Which is the worst feature being added into games besides motion controls.
