    While it's not really a racer in the technical sense, that doesn't keep Ion Racer from being entertaining. Fans of pretty much any kind of "runner" should certainly consider it. Everyone else should, too, because it's fun. It's also hard to put down and perfect for that pick-up and play gaming iOS users are accustomed to.

    An amazing piece of work by its developers, and I hope that this review encourages the Social Gaming Network to keep updating this application.

    A twitchy sprint that nestles on the line between high-speed thrills and spectacular death, Ion Racer is a dangerously compulsive speedster.

    Because of the relatively early difficulty, Ion Storm might struggle tackling similarly frantic games like Temple Run and Jetpack Joyride. Constantly beating your old score is a big reason the runner genre is so addicting, and it's a shame it wasn't implemented a little better here.

    Ion Racer is a fun, very well done, thrill ride of a game that leaves us wishing there was more to it.

    We don't mean to be too hard on Ion Racer, because it certainly delivers a pleasurable experience, but it's also a proverbial one-trick pony, a game you'll probably check out for a few days and then discard.

    Ion Racer plays like an endless runner with hover racers. How far can you get as the track steadily speeds up, and how many points can you accumulate before your enviable crash and burn?

    The biggest issue I have with Ion Racer is that the game never really evolves beyond what you see at the onset. You can buy different skins and upgrade attributes, but the gameplay never really feels different. Even the environments hardly change, with the same futuristic tunnels with each run. It's a shame, because the visuals are excellent and, when combined with the framerate and sense of speed, look very much like Wipeout.
