i tofft. good game from an indy dev. very similiar to asphalt 5. lots a traffic, the ability to drift and wrecking which although not very thrilling does have cutscenes. it runs great on the iphone 5. as of now all i see is tilt controls so if you are not a fan of those an update might be added. its every bit worth a dollar though and they put alot of time into it. good graphics and special effects. similiar to the older asphalt 5. you can also powerslide and boost during the race. there are many tracks based on US states and car upgrades. there are also police and trees and obstacles in the road. there are also tractor trailers with ramps moving you can drive onto and launch off from for bonus money which is way cool i thought. i don't mind tilt controls but they are somewhat of a hinderance in this game mainly because there is no sensitivity adjustment and you wind up with alot of head on collisions with other cars. with that being said it is a fun game with excellent potential but a control update wouldn't hurt. still a good game for the price but don't expect it to be need for speed.

I remember the original games, which I enjoyed a lot. Nice to see this available for iOS in such a solid-looking reinvention.

Yep I remember the original in the late 80s. Looks good but tilt only is a bad decision. I'll get this if there are other control options added in a future update

after playing more i still enjoy it but the limited controls hurt it. you have a hell of a time avoiding oncoming traffic. not a deal breaker but i feel at times like i am less focused on racing and more focused on the controls but for tilt game players its a good buy for a dollar

I tried this one a couple of days ago. Not recommended. Also nothing like the original Crazy Cars.

Looks Great, but: No touch controls, no buy!

Ahhhh, Crazy Cars 2 with the Ferrari F40 and the US roads. You had to take right turns to get to destination. I hope they made a new version of that one, but with more cars, better police AI, traffic, etc.
