Hello polarbit,

While I did not care for this game before, I must say this update did it for me. The AI drivers are no longer invincible and perfect. They are now affected by road conditions just like me and now the races feel a whole lot like RR1 which is great. I just had a HUGE pile up in a tight corner an hour ago and the grin I had on my face was priceless.

All that needs fixing next is the controls. They are too sluggish and always respond late. Make them work like in RR1 just like you fixed the perfect AI today.

Also please while at it, can you tilt the the cam just a little during the races so we can see a little more ahead or at an angle. I would also like to see the camera zooms in when cars are making turns or going slower just like in Mini Motors. Because these cars really look great, but one can't really appreciate the craftsmanship since they are so tiny on the screen.

I would also love a "watch replay" feature with different views/angles available.
I look forward to new cars and maps, but honestly, I wish you would implement a multiplayer system like Real Racing 2. As it is right now, the multiplayer is barely playable and always laggy even if it's only 2 players racing.

Thanks

Lost all my data as well, deleted it.... Not going to start all over again! Mini motor here I come !!!

Really stinks, but I can't see myself putting in the effort again

Unlike everyone here I did not lose any data. That's because I deleted the game long ago. However now, I find the AI tweak they have done makes the game so much fun now. Because the AI is no longer perfect and boring. Races are fun for me now. So I say to all of you to give it a try... again; you'll be surprised at how much better it plays with the new AI drivers. If only they had done the same for those weird controls.

Oh, for the love of God. I had all but maybe four cars unlocked and fully upgraded... There's no way I'm going to grind for that long to get all of those again. I've loved all of the Reckless games, but...

Can't believe I lost everything, I don't know what to do now since I spent countless hours to complete this game.

I am pretty surprised they haven't put a warning on the update notes yet... kinda strange...

if people don't check out reviews or the thread before updating (and really... who does before updating EVERY game they update...) more and more are just gonna keep loosing their progress...


But... good side of things... I've gotta agree. The AI is WAY better now.... Almost feels like I"m racing actual people now. =oD
