Some people enjoy the whole spectacle of luxury supercars tangled in a heated race around the streets of Monaco. While there’s nothing wrong with car racing games of that nature, you can’t expect these very same folks to enjoy a little dirt on their fenders – and possibly even some scrapes here and there. For that particular crowd, the perfect rough and tumble game is Reckless Racing.
Featuring a steady diet of imposing pick-ups, muscle cars, and the occasional big rigs, Reckless Racing takes us to a world where exotic vehicles are about as welcome as a LeBron James is in Cleveland.
This game is all about the muscle. Climb behind the wheel of a pick up and navigate your way around a makeshift course that’s full of dirt, pot holes, and of course, ramps that just so happen to be there, waiting and willing for you to take your rigger and fly it through the air. Reckless Racing is definitely not for the high-brow, but it is perfect for everyday folks like us who don’t mind getting a little down and dirty on occasion.
Need for Speed Shift is one of those games that’s easy to get addicted to, especially if you start playing it on a console like the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3. However, the downside to enjoying a game so much is that it builds ridiculously high expectations for the game to live up to. Suppose Electronic Arts decides to make a version for the iPad, how much of a letdown would it be if the graphics and the gameplay were significantly altered and you end up playing with boxed cars racing in straight line race tracks? Fortunately, none of that happened when EA did release an iPad version of Shift, and contrary to our fears, the game has certainly exceeded our expectations.
Among the new features you’ll find in the iPad version include eight new cars, a couple of additional tracks, and even a more personable style of play that, we’re not ashamed to say, is borderline addicting.
Firemint hit a goldmine with the Real Racing game for the iPhone, and fresh off its success, the developers have decided to develop a separate game solely for the iPad. And so, Real Racing HD was born.
With the success of the first Real Racing game for the iPhone, it only felt right that an iPad version would follow suit. After all, despite the overwhelmingly positive reception for the iPhone game, it had one very important factor going against it: the small screen of the iPhone made it a nightmare to control for those with enormous fingers.
Taking all those things into account, Firemint released an iPad version of the hit racing game to quell all those worries aside. What you have is a game that takes all the elements of Real Racing and moves it to a larger screen, making the graphics so much better in the process, and the gameplay much more playable for those who couldn’t enjoy the iPhone version.
