The updates to apps to support the new Retina Display on the new iPad are coming fast and furious and one of the latest, no pun intended, is Firemint’s Real Racing 2 HD.
As a side note, Real Racing 2 and Real Racing 2 HD is the best racing simulator out there for iOS in my opinion. The game is more of a real simulator, not an “arcade” racing game. Don’t get me wrong, I like a pick-up-and-drive game as well but for a more realistic experience, Real Racing 2 is the way to go.
That said, Firemint has released a big, big update to Real Racing 2 HD. The 444MB update brings full 2049×1536 resolutions support with 4x anti-aliasing to the new iPad. You also have a new a Photo Mode which brings several editing tools and filters to snap photos of your favorite car to save in your gallery.
Not all of the updates however were aimed at the new iPad. All Real Racing 2 HD users gain new supported languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Dutch to name a few), multiplayer now uses the 3D game environment, Career difficulty can be adjusted a bit more and a wide range of updates and fixes. Real Racing 2 HD already supports 1080p output
Real Racing 2 HD is $2.99 in the App Store. In app purchases for cash to buy new cars and upgrades range from $3.99-$9.99 but are not needed to play the game.
