Really like the visuals in this game, but the handling has never felt quite right to me. I was a Micro Machines addict growing up though, so my expectations of this style of gameplay might be slightly warped! Definitely good fun though.

Most of the time the racing tires provide a higher index. I think it's only for the all offroad cars that the sports tires are higher, the difference being (I'm assuming) that those tires are better for the dirt tracks. But yeah, it's a bit confusing.

If you glance back at some previous posts, you'll see that the handling seems to be the universal issue from most people who play it. I'm really hoping they do something about it because other than that the game is good.

Really enjoying the game! Got the final car after a few days of playing and i am loving every moment of it. Though I still kinda prefer RR1 to RR2.

Anyway, quick question about the achievement "Jay Leno Wannabe", what cars do you get?
I know one of them is the Dune Commander, but what are the other ones?

For this achievement, I think that you have to buy all the cars in the game.

Yeah it would be nice if Pixelbite at least acknowledges the fact that many players are having issues with the handling (too sensitive, car sliding back and forth with simple taps) and that adjusting the steer sensitivity does nothing to correct it (at least from my perspective).

I keep coming back to this game because I like most everything else about it and I'm hoping this will be resolved.

Two more things I'd like to mention, one comment, one question...

I am also having issues with the standard camera angle, so much so that I find myself using the Chase Camera almost exclusively. The standard camera angle feels awkward and the Chase Camera seems much more natural. And although I like the Chase Camera, I do wish it was panned out slightly more than it is now, simply so a little more of the track is shown as you go forward. I think the fact that it is not panned out enough is aiding in the overall lack of control of my vehicle in that I can't quite see far enough ahead soon enough.

My question is, since there is still so much love for RR1, is there any chance of a Retina upgrade for this game? I think it would sell. I know I'd buy it

I wanted to edit my above post. I was unaware that RR1 was Retina ready, probably because I was comparing it to the graphics of RR2.

Pixelbite? Pixelbite??? Why thee have gone so silent?
