Decent graphics, convenient controls, true-to-life physics
Graphics could have been better, high price
Real Racing 2 is one of the few now racing simulators for Windows Phone, in which you can enjoy both the gameplay and the quality of graphics which is about a good detailization of the game world and landscapes, as well as thirty cars made under license of automakers. The sound in the game is also wonderful and fits perfectly into what is happening on the other side of the screen.
By many criteria, this game relinquishes to Asphalt 7 Heat, but given the age difference of these simulators is nearly three years, we can safely say that Real Racing 2 is on the list of the best races for Windows Phone. Unlike the brainchild of the Gamloft studio, in this game you will be able to delve in the intricacies of car settings. You will have the opportunity to perform its tuning, buy improved spare parts, repaint it in a color that you like.
Gameplay features and modes rangeWhat is interesting is that the vehicle by which you are racing, tends to get various damage. Especially if during the race you collide with rivals or railings. This, of course, will require the investment of money earned at races, but also makes the gameplay more realistic though a bit stretched in time.
In the first mode, you will find the racing career in which you can become a true professional in the field of circuit racing. The second mode is more suitable for honing skills, and it consists of single races in which you can compete against your own results, improving them gradually. The third mode will please you the most, especially if you have an access to a nearby free Wi-Fi point. This is a multiplayer mode where you can compete with real people in real time.
Design, controlling and settings in Real Racing 2The game provides 15 highways (the total length is about 40 miles), but due to the change of time of day (day, twilight and night) it seems that there are much more of them. At different times of the day the road is perceived quite differently. Controlling in the game can be both sensory and mixed with the involvement of the accelerometer, while its main advantage lies in the fact that the car adapts to your driving style. In addition, each vehicle is equipped with a system of compass stabilization, automatic braking and many other features that make the race more comfortable.
ResumeIn the setting of the game there is an option to disable all these security systems, but we would not recommend doing this as long as you do not achieve sufficient experience. To summarize, we can say that the game is very interesting and worth seeing for fans of the genre, but it has one disadvantage that is its price which in our opinion is a little too high.
