Real Racing 2 is the long-awaited sequel to popular driving game Real Racing, and it definitely lives up to all the hype. Like the original game, Real Racing 2 offers the same sensitive accelerometer steering that feels just right on the iPhone. But there are a lot of new features in this sequel that make it even better than the original.
One of the biggest changes is the ability to drive real-world cars; Firemint managed to get 30 officially licensed cars, and each car sounds and drives like its real-world counterpart. You also can take part in auto-matched 16-player online races, though you'll want to have a solid connection over Wi-Fi or 3G to be competitive. You also can compete in eight-player local Wi-Fi races for the most seamless multiplayer experience.
The original Real Racing was known for its amazing graphics, and Real Racing 2 is even better with fairly high frame rates and realistic-looking lens flares and reflections as you tear around the track in one of 15 different locations. The single-player game offers a lot of content, challenging you to compete in races to make money so you can purchase performance upgrades and new cars. You also compete in short head-to-head challenges where you'll earn a significant amount of money for winning single-lap races against an AI opponent.
As you progress through the game you'll earn enough money to buy faster, more-expensive cars, such as the 2010 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 and the 2012 McLaren MP4-12C. You'll also have the option to purchase different-colored paint jobs so you can customize your car just the way you want it.
Overall, Real Racing 2 is probably the best racing game in the iTunes App Store. With beautiful graphics, 30 real-life sports cars, 15 tracks, and 16-player online racing, this game is a must-have for all driving-game fans.
