CSR Racing 2: How to master Live Races

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on August 11th, 2017

Getting better at racing the AI in CSR Racing 2 is a pretty straightforward process. You run enough races with a particular car to get its shift timing down, continually improve it by buying upgrades whenever you can, and add any fusion parts you grab along the way.

Tuning adds another dimension to the whole affair, but not enough to significantly throw you off course. If you just keep plowing ahead, you'll be able to take down all the crews in the game eventually and figure out what happened to your friends' stolen cars.

The Live Race mode, however, is a different beast. In contrast to some other mobile racing games, it provides CSR Racing 2 with a true multiplayer experience, allowing you to race head to head with a live human opponent at any time (or at least any time the servers are functioning properly).

Road Warriors is a lean-and-mean combat racer in more ways than one.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: SPEED BUMPS
This racing game takes a few pages out Forza's book, but feels needlessly bulky and inelegant at times.

How to get a Bugatti Chiron in CSR Racing 2

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: BEAUTIFUL DRAG :: Read Review »

If you've been playing CSR Racing 2 since launch, you've probably got yourself a pretty nice garage by now. Just reaching and participating in Tier 5 races means you've been privileged to drive one of the premier supercars in existence, vehicles sporting prestigious names like Lamborghini or Ferrari.

Still, if you really want to be at the wheel of the freshest thing on four wheels, you'll need to aim even higher. We're talking about the Bugatti Chiron, a car so luxurious and exclusive that you have to be rich (the price tag is over $2.5 million) and know someone (less than 500 came from the factory in the initial production run) to own one.

And yet real car enthusiasts could if they would. The Chiron boasts an insane 1,500 HP engine, capable of sending the car from 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. It's so powerful that the car actually has an engine limiter said to keep its top speed at 261 mph. Yes, you read that right.

So how can you get your hands on one in CSR Racing 2? There are two ways to nab one within the next few weeks.

CSR Racing 2 update: What you need to know about new cars, Live Race revamp and more

CSR Racing 2 was already plenty good. With stunning graphics, enough different game modes to keep people coming back, and actual multiplayer races, Naturalmotion gave gearheads something that was worth the wait.

Could it be even better, though? Most mobile games can be, and the developers have been up to more than just adding new cars to the game -- though there's been some of that too. The latest update for CSR Racing 2tinkers with the gameplay in a couple of areas and even may affect what's in your garage. We opened up the throttle to take a look.

Drive into the Evolution of Jaguar in Real Racing 3

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

You've been able to race just about everything in Real Racing 3 since it first hit mobile three years ago. Yet Firemonkeys and EA keep managing to get more vehicles in the game, finding new ways to keep drivers coming back for more.

The game's latest update is called Evolution of Jaguar, and as the name suggests, it explores the rich history of one of the automotive industry's most iconic luxury car manufacturers. It brings with it not just a chance to win Jaguar vehicles to drive in the game -- though you certainly can do that, with a chance to win three different models -- but three other new cars from the likes of Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Dodge as well.

A three-part Jaguar Legacy Quest is interspersed with three other limited time events that start now and run through September 18. Let's break them down:

Big Bang Racing guide: tips, tricks, and hints

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on August 1st, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Big Bang Racing isn't your average racing game. For one thing, you don't even start the game able to race.

You're also not trying to beat anyone by going fast in a straight line. Anything but, actually, as you learn to make your way through physics-defying courses of every kind that can send you backwards, upside-down, and through all manners of strange obstacles before you get to the finish.

Oh, and did we mention that the courses were designed by other players?

It can be a little tough getting your bearings in a game like this, but that's why we're here. Take a ride through out Big Bang Racing guide and we'll give you all the tips, tricks, and hints you need to have the basics down pat.
