Switching away from the genre's typical in-car or behind-the-bumper view doesn't suck the thrills out of Reckless Racing 2, which uses a top-down camera to spotlight the action across muddy trails and cracked asphalt alike. While not quite as fresh or revelatory an App Store entry as the original, Reckless Racing 2 is a hearty upgrade packed with fresh tracks and customizable vehicles, plus a slick visual overhaul.
Let's hope the censors don't get a hold of Reckless Getaway. Where Grand Theft Auto caught a lot of flack for its wanton vehicular violence, you still had the option to play as a conscientious gangster with a heart of gold if you desired. This is not the case with Reckless Getaway, a top-down driving game where you're rewarded for murdering innocent civilians. Despite the dark subject matter it's portrayed as brightly colored, cartoon carnage in this cathartic and addictive on-the-road rampage.
