If you love racing games, and can get over the moderate current price, then Real Racing is a great play with tons of play options and deserves a spot on your iPhone.

Real Racing came in at what we now consider the top tier of game pricing in the App Store, $9.99. That’s going to disappoint some people… probably the same people that pay $60+ for console games without blinking, but this game is well worth it. I know people are skeptical of a game at this price point, and we’ve seen racing games at this price before, but what we haven’t seen is a racing game with this quality and this depth before.

Casual gamers might be put off with Real Racing, as it isn't the "tilt the phone to win" type of racing game that is so common to the platform. It's difficult, and it will take dedication to succeed. If that sounds like something you'd enjoy, we highly recommend you take it for a ride.

Casual racers might be put off by Real Racing, because it isn't an easy "tilt the handset to win" type of racing game that is so common to the platform. It's difficult, and it will take dedication to succeed. But those looking for a simulation-style racing experience are going to be very, very impressed.

Ähnlich wie Need for Speed: Undercover kann auch Real Racing nicht gegen Rennspielgrößen auf anderen Handhelds anstinken: Dazu fehlt es einfach an Umfang und Abwechslung. Simulations- und Tuning-Freunde werden mit dem Spiel ebenfalls nicht glücklich werden. Und obwohl die Rennen beeindruckend realistisch in Szene gesetzt sind, fällt das Fahrverhalten sehr arcadelastig aus. Doch für spannende Rennen mit Fantasie-Boliden und -Kursen ist der Titel trotzdem gut. Auch der für ein mobiles Spiel umfangreiche Liga-Modus über das Online-Portal ist interessant. Internet-Rennen gibt es zwar nicht, aber ich darf in Echtzeit mit anderen Zockern um gute Ergebnisse kämpfen. Obwohl das Spiel nicht mit Abwechslung punktet und dementsprechend viele Kontrapunkte in der Liste stehen, ist Real Racing momentan das interessanteste Rennspiel im iTunes-Store.

If these criticisms seem overly harsh for a game of such relatively low cost and such hulking ambition, that's only because Real Racing's achievements have propelled it into the big league. In these early days of iPhone development critics and consumers alike are still feeling out the boundaries of the machine's capabilities, and as new territory is revealed, so the scales of judgment are adjusted. Make no mistake, this is the best racing game on the iPhone by a drag-racing mile. But set against the other handheld stars of the genre, as it so clearly desires to be, its brilliance is somewhat diminished.
