    Real Racing 2 is without a doubt the best racing game for the iPad in the App Store today. Don't balk at its $9.99 price tag. You see every cent of it in the game (especially on an iPad 2), from the moving gauges on the dashboard to the robust 16-player online matches.

    Aside from all the novelty value of full-screen TV output, Real Racing 2 is by far the most accomplished mobile racing game out there right now. Whether you dive into the career mode or the 16-player online multiplayer, the breadth of content is impressive, the handling is superb, and it's easy to appreciate why the game has garnered such universal acclaim.

    Funny and really beautiful. Real Racing 2 is one of the best racing games you can find on iOS devices.

    Although the solo modes are fun, nothing is more enjoyable than pitting your skills against real-world opponents as it turns the sometimes generic racing into a virtual racing frenzy.

    The undisputed king of racing on iOS devices. Playing Real Racing 2 HD brings back memories of the first time we tried Gran Turismo, only much better looking. If you're looking for a serious racing game for your iPad, nothing comes close to this.

    Yes, you need an iPad 2, this game and the AV adaptor. Yes you will have a blast, and yes you should be playing Firemint's Real Racing 2 HD on your 1080p TV right now! I'm excited to see what other games adopt this style of gameplay.

    Unrivaled in the App Store. There are no racing games like it, and if you're even remotely into driving, then Real Racing 2 HD is for you.

    The first one is great with the only flaws being rear view mirror location tap and no front hood in the otherwise very realistic racing POV.The first one is great with the only flaws being rear view mirror location tap and no front hood in the otherwise very realistic racing POV. Also some of the cars are suspect, being that Aussie's who may have developed the game go for custom bastardized car designs?
    This one has amazing detail down to the tire tread marks on the tracks and roads to highly real shadow play and sun flares. What makes it awful is the driving itself! It's not nearly fast enough to even warrant playing at starter levels (obviously a ploy to buy upgrades), but you can't do that for a game that you already charged for! You must allow at least for good basic starter level play, and this terrible sequel does not. It will waste an inordinate amount of time to get anywhere even worth your time.
    The scumbags at Firemint/EA also list their games at much lower file sizes than is actually the case, which is highly misleading and downright fraudulent.
