    Reckless Racing 2 is much better than the last game, which was already great to begin with.

    The comprehensive career mode, wealth of maps, and tweaks to the arcade racing formula has made this game more enjoyable in the long term. Add in the amazing visuals and music, and there's not much to dislike here.

    On multiple occasions I've paid three or four times as much for games that have far less to offer and aren't nearly as fun as Reckless Racing 2. It bears repeating that this game can stand proudly side-by-side with almost any arcade racer on any other platform.

    Reckless Racing 2 is a major improvement over the first episode, with a welcome structure that glues together the single races in a effective, even if not original way. A must-buy for arcade racing fans.

    If it weren't for the amazing Real Racing 2, we would have crowned Reckless Racing 2 the best car-based arcade for iOS.

    More Need for Speed, less FlatOut, more racing, less drifting. And it is simply one of the best looking racers in the AppStore. Unfortunately there is no local multiplayer while online play is still contaminated with lags.

    This game is the best IOS racing game i've played. The graphics are top notch on IOS, the sounds is amazing and the gameplay is fast paced and addictive. If you love racing games and own an IOS product, then definately give this a shot. 9.5/10 Expand

    A very solid racer that doesn't require an intense amount of concentration that mobile gamers just don't have to spare. It's fun to crash through objects and go flying in the air and the controls, while they take a bit to get used to, are ultimately a great way to handle mobile racing. If you enjoy arcade style racing games, this one is one of the best. Expand
