Firemint released an update to their super popular iPhone game, Real Racing 2. If you didn’t read my review, you can do so here but it is sufficient to say that I believe this is the best racing simulation game available on any mobile platform.
The update really is more of a bug fix than anything – addressing some multiplayer issues as well as some crashes when extra trophies are collected. Here is what I found interesting though:
When I started Real Racing 2 this afternoon I go this in game notification that a new update was available. This is the first time I have seen such an update being displayed on the iPhone. Has anyone else seen something like this in other apps? If this is indeed something new, I frankly love it.

I will start with the punch line of the review: Real Racing 2 by Firemint is the single best racing simulator game on the platform – perhaps any platform – today. It’s $9.99 in the App Store and if you like racing games go get it.

For those of you who have decided to read on, let me explain why I feel the way I do about Real Racing 2. Simply put, it is one of the most challenging and realistic racing games for the iPhone available today. The graphics are stunning to add to the fun and the unmatched 16-way online racing against those around the world makes this game stand head-and-shoulders above the rest. Frankly it is hard to put into words how impressive this game is and despite the fact that this review is going to have plenty of screenshots in it, you really need to check it out for yourself. My son said it best, “This is Forza for your iPhone”. I think he is 100% dead-on, referring to the Microsoft Xbox 360 franchise that has been extremely popular on the console. If you like racing simulators then there is little doubt you need to have Real Racing 2 on your iPhone today.
It is one of the most hyped game releases for the iPhone in a while and now it is finally available here in the US. Firemint’s Real Racing 2 has hit the App Store and brings an unmatched online gaming experience to the platform. With 16-way multiplayer, 30 licensed vehicles and 14 tracks, it is already receiving high marks from reviewers.
It is $9.95 in the App Store
Firemint has announced that the much anticipated sequel to Real Racing will hit the App Store on December 16th. Real Racing 2 looks to be such a quantum leap over the first version of the game that it almost deserves a new name. To start the game has 30 different licensed cars. Now you will see Corvettes and Mustangs in the mix which always adds a bit of fun to any racing game. You will be able to do a 16 person multiplayer session with Real Racing 2. 16! This is a first for any iOS game. Add to this 15 different tracks and you have a true racing game.
And keep in mind, Real Racing 2 is a simulator, not an arcade racing game. The original Real Racing was challenging and I expect nothing less from Real Racing 2.
Here is a rundown of the features coming in Real Racing 2:
- 30 officially licensed cars
- 16 car grid against AI, and 16 player online racing – an iOS first
- Career mode with well over 10 hours gameplay and a range of event types
- Earn in-game currency to buy and sell cars, and buy upgrades
- 5 game modes: Career Mode, Quick Race, Time Trial, Local Multiplayer (8 players), Online Multiplayer (16 players)
- 15 locations with 40 miles of highly detailed race track
- Vehicle damage
- Online Save Game
- Game Center and Cloudcell integration, multiple profiles
- Wide range of control options
- HUD with minimap that can be turned on or off
- 5 camera angles including fully 3D cockpit view, and TV style replays
- Powered by Firemint’s exclusive Mint3D™ engine
Real Racing 2 will be $9.99 in the App Store for iPhone when it is released on December 16th.
