realracing_03

Firemint has released a major update to their Real Racing game today. Aside from the usual bug fixes, Firemint has added a number of new features:

  • 6-player multiplayer over local WiFi network (previously 2 player only).
  • New vehicle class with a distinct roar of a V12 engine with "unsurpassed speed and control with 12 new exotic vehicles"
  • New game soundtrack with 10 original music tracks
  • Career Mode additions: exotic vehicle qualifier and two new championships
  • OS 3.0 iTunes Music Library picker
  • New Control Method: Touch-Wheel-to-Steer, Manual Accelerate and Manual Brake.

The game originally came out in June and we loved it:

Real Racing sets a new standard for what to expect of racing games on the iPhone. Great graphics combined with a solid framerate make for an action-packed racing experience.

    Great news to an already great game.

    But will there be plans for Bluetooth gaming?

    Did they fix their craptastic Ai that constantly ran you off the road. This is the most disappointing game that I was so excited to play. Bought the morning I could, played a few races and went back to NFS. If they make it so you can actually race in this game I would go back to it, but until then its the its the most over rated pile on the app store.

    • Diablohead

      Since the first update you could pick if the AI hit you lots or not in the options, set it to low and they leave you alone.

      New update is great, still learning how to handle the exotic cars. The change in music is the only complaint I have on the game now, the new music is no where near as good.

      Do you mean an an actual real AI? What do you think they do in real racing (no pun intended)?

    For some reason exotic cars section is locked despite the fact that I unlocked all the other sections before. Does anyone know what I need to do to unlock it? Like I said I have completed all the other career challenges. Btw this game is the best racer IMO.

    Why are the menu buttons (especially the back button) so unresponsive now? I kept pressing on it and it takes several tries to click.

    Now THIS is how you make an update. I rarely buy games (especially if there's no demo) because there's just too many of them out there and I'll probably purchase even less because the trend is soon going to be making money through downloadable content. I'll be sure to always buy firemint games though as long as they continue to be fun and NOT another world/number game :)

    I find this series disappoonting.
    They don't have any real cars and the graphics are boring.

    I can't wait for the next need for speed.

    Anyone get the impression EA likes to pay people to ramble in these forums about Need for Speed? Go back to your NFS forums peeps, this is where men talk about real mens racing! :D

    Still no "lite" version though. Sorry, but I refuse to drop £5.99 on a completely new game without at least trying it first.

    • Major

      Rob just buy it look at the reviews the game by far is the best racing game for the iphone.

      Also TKO this ain't a Bathhouse.

    Going back to NFSU! you crazy?! EA have not updated the game since release! and Firemint have updated twice now they have even added touch controls which really suits me to play this game.

    Telling me going back to NFSU what a crap game. EA haven't done anything to that game not even added touch controls.

    NFSU waste of £6.00 ( I know it's got a price drop it'll be £4.00? something like that anyway) cause hasn't been updated

    Real Racing worth the £6.00? hell yeah!

    Firemint are on fire and the game is mint! lol

  • menom

    This was already a fantastic game - the fact they've already released serious updates shows Firemint are top class developers

    there's no need for a lite version of this as the reviews make clear that this is a truly great racing game

    graphics great, controls superb, career mode is great, loads of racetracks and multiplayer

    if £5.99 is too much for anyone for the above checklist then I don't think they recognise the concept that it is worth paying a little extra for quality

    oh and the computer AI is great too - no idea what he odd complaint re that is about

    I purchased this just in time for the weekend. I've been playing it a lot. Man it's fun. I didn't think the iPhone would be able to pull off a realistic racing game. And after all the slow frame rates I've seen on other stuff I was blown away by just how quick Real Racing is. Best fun I've had on the iPhone for many weeks.

    Well worth the money, I say. ..have to find some more time to play it. :D

  • djmuzi

    I purchased the game too. I wanted to wait until it costs 5,49 EUR, like i did with NFSU. But now I saw the "real update" from the real racing makers and I belive that EA never will provide such update. Now I think that this great game will not fall in price like the prices of the competitors.

    I'm surprised about the game. Graphics are not as good as Fastlane, but the game is much more playable, making steering with Fastlane is impossible. NFSU has nicer graphics too, but far away from realizm.

    My best racing game: Real Racing! Great!

    Eh. It looks really good and Firemint is pretty awesome but I'll wait for Gran Turismo on PSP later this year. While I like the iPhone/iPod Touch and some of the games, nothing will ever beat a real portable gaming machine, like the PSP. Gran Turismo on the PSP looks simply amazing.
