Real Racing 3 1.0.59 Review

Take the wheel and race against your friends or foes in Real Racing 3.

You and your friends need a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 to play great racing games together, right? Wrong! Real Racing 3 gives you an incredible racing experience on your smartphone or tablet. With real, customizable cars, amazing graphics, and hundreds of levels, there probably isn't a better racing simulator on Android.

The app takes an absurdly long time to load when you first play it. It took upwards of 30 minutes to actually get to the game during testing. Your best bet is to leave it downloading while you work on something else. Once you're finally playing Real Racing 3, you'll realize what the wait is for. The game's graphics are downright breathtaking as far as Android games go. They could even be mistaken for current-generation console games. The controls are smooth and easy to master, too. The app requires you to log in to play, but lets you do it through Facebook for easy setup. You can play against your friends or any series of Facebook opponents, but the matches are all time-lapsed. This makes the game run smoothly on even the lightest of processors and conserves battery life. There are tons of levels and cars, but most of them require a huge chunk of the in-game currency to unlock.

If you're used to the ads and frequent unlocks that come with smartphone games, you'll love this one. The graphics alone should make Real Racing 3 skyrocket to the top of the charts. The fact that it has plenty of content to unlock just makes it even more worthwhile. If you're a fan of racing games, you want this download.
