In my opinion, because it isn't such a good game, the controls are weird to me and i hate playing it

But then again, plenty of good reviews on the app store for some reason, so i don't think they are responding to negative criticism.

Yea it seems like the current crop of racing games are shaking in their boots. I picked up Raging Thunder at $2 [great game!] but I think I'll be skipping this one.

Personally, I found this one enjoyable. I paid $8 for it back in the day and definitely got my money's worth. It's plenty long, there are lots of unlockables, the graphics aren't terrible, and there are several different game modes.

The controls are a little weird, primarily because the drift mechanics are so tough to handle. But overall, I've been pretty happy with the game, and I think it's probably worth the price if you want a few hours of solid gameplay.

So you think Raging Thunder is worth the $2? I am considering purchasing it, but everyone in another thread hated the game and said it wasn't even worth the $2.

I don't like it.
The controls are weird
Theres no acceleration button, i think
Asphalts a great game but i wouldn't be surprised once NFS and Ferrari whatever comeout to see the price drop even more. Thats the app store for ya.
