Now, THIS is the kind of racing game I've been waiting for. The ability to play some of the world's greatest cars.

This is how the game looks like on other cell phones:


The cool thing about the iPhone version is that instead of the vertical screen, it uses the screen HORIZONATALLY like the other iPhone racing games.

I think might be get it! Even if it's $9.99.

Here's a direct link: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=289651516&mt=8

I just downloaded it and played a few games.

It's interesting that you can choose your controls, either pressing on the screen to turn OR using the accelerometer. I use the accelerometer.

Also, you can CHOOSE to play the game vertically OR horizontally. I find that playing it vertically has more finer controls although you do run out of screen.

I tried the Nissan 350Z first. Now, I'll try the Mini... :cool:

just played a lap or 2. Excuse my French but this game is the crap! Best race app yet. The music & control is smooth in my opinion. It's some fly crap

how do you change the option to hear your own music? Also, how many crashes did you guys get? I crashed a few times in the option menu

If you turn off the game sound you should be able to hear your own music. I'll try it out too.

I only crashed once during a game. But, that after I played a LOT of races before that. I rebooted and I was fine. This game takes up a lot of resources.

Hmmm... I don't know how to use my own music from the iPhone. Can't use the iPod in the game (that I know of). Turning off the sound doesn't do it automatically.

Oh well... more racing. Paris is crazy! :)

from what i have played so far it is kinda like gran turismo on the iPhone.

So far i like the stearing with my thumb!
There was a youtube video out before the iPhone released last year that is almost just like the stearing in this game.

Which ones have you bought so far? I only got Crash Bandicoot, which still fills a "Mario Kart" need in my gaming life. :p
i bought crash and motochaser. crash is pretty fun and sometimes extremely hard for me to steer. motochaser is the same way, the steering is impossible and never works right. sometimes i think my accelerometer is messed up.

Gran Turismo is a very good comparison.

I like that there's 3 different ways you can play the game. I tried using the tapping. I never tapped in the correct areas. The accelerometer was hard to use at first horizontally. It was easier to use vertically. Then, I weaned myself into playing horizontally. I tried the steering wheel but I was too used to the accelerometer.

So, how is the steering for you in this game? Also, does your accelerometer work well when you switch viewing modes in other apps? There IS a bit of a lag when swtiching viewing modes but if your accelerometer is bad it would either not work at all or intermittently.

At least for me in Asphalt and Crash, the accelerometer is quite sensitive so small movements are picked up. That's been the trick for me. Just don't do a lot of BIG movements.
