It's surely difficult to craft the follow-up to the most spectacular iOS racing game ever produced, and doubly so when ditching a price point for a divisive free-to-play model. Electronic Arts attempts both with the anticipated Real Racing 3, and largely succeeds on both fronts, delivering a hugely impressive free racer. You've never played a free mobile racer that's half as robust or refined as Real Racing 3. Building upon the fantastic previous iteration, the game pumps even more gloss and detail into its simulation, providing a great sensation of speed and realism as you blast through real-world tracks in licensed super cars.
We generally agree with the old axiom that it’s best not to judge a book by its cover, but in the case of the Real Racing 3, we’ll make an exception. It’s got 46 real, licensed cars, real-life tracks including Spa, Laguna Seca, Brands Hatch and more, and some of the most realistic graphics we’ve seen on iOS. It’s also the third game in the series, but you might have figured that out already. Who says truth in advertising doesn’t work?
