    Speed Forge Extreme is an action packed space-themed racer which both looks and feels the part. In my experience I really felt like I was playing a WipEout spin-off (in a good way), plus the game's accelerometer controls are the smoothest I've seen on any App Store title to date.

    Speed Forge Extreme is a solid entry into the future racer genre, adding an aresenal of weapons into the mix.

    While Speed Forge Extreme really is the best of the bunch so far, it still has a ways to go before it can reach the platforms full potential of the genre.

    Speed Forge Extreme did a great job with executing with the controls, and the tilt was flawless along with the inclusion of touch controls; another yet flawless implementation.

    It's a high-octane racing game with great graphics and energetic soundrack that is fun and captivating to play for as long as it lasts. If there were more ways to play or a possible way to add in app purchases for different weapon sets, more tracks, or better vehicles, you'd have a classic.

    This is a quality arcade racer that makes some mistakes, but ultimately succeeds where it matters most: control.

    My current favorite futuristic racer in the App Store. The camera angle, the well done tracks, the visual effects, the excellent sense of speed - they all come together to deliver what really does feel like a "console" title on the iPhone.
