Ridge Racer Slipstream Imps vs other racers

Hi guys,

I've been wanting to play RR for a bit now but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. Need some imps especially compared to other racing games in terms of grinding.

1. Do I grind more or less to move forward?
2. How's the graphics? I didn't like the blurred style of Asphalt 8.
3. How's the tilt controls? I hope there's a tap anywhere to break control scheme with auto gas.

Thanks in advance.

There is is auto accelerate but I use tilt so I cannot speak for the touch controls.

I have found very little grind. Just do well and you get enough dosh to move forwards.

I really like the graphical style, but I am 40 years old and fondly remember Datona.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. Will get it tonight. I like Daytona as well though I'm still a couple of years shy of 40

So I pulled the trigger and bought RR Slipstream. Glad to see it's the same RR of old. Controls and graphics are nice on my Retina Mini. I was hoping there was a touch anywhere to break option(similar to Real Racing 3) but otherwise, it's perfect (so far).
