Hands-on Preview: Real Racing 2

Posted by Jeff Scott on December 10th, 2010

For the past few days I've been lucky enough to kick the tires of Real Racing 2, the successor to the multiple award winning racing game. Real Racing for iOS really pushed the boundaries of what a mobile device can do rivaling the best that the PSP can offer. Real Racing 2 takes the core of it's predecessor and amps it up in pretty much every way. Better display, more races, real licensed cars, and an amazing 16 player online multiplayer racing mode. 16 players! On a mobile phone! And it's way more than what a PSP can offer.

So, how is it? Well you'll have to wait for our full review next week. For now, enjoy this teaser video showing the game in action.

Real Racing 2 will be available on December 16th for $9.99. Here's a full list of features straight from Firemint:
