What makes real racing so great?

I've been considering getting real racing for a while now, but haven't convinced myself it will be worth it until they add full online multiplayer. But almost everybody who plays it thinks it is great, what is so special about it? Then again, I could just keep playing Enviro-Bear for a better driving experience.

It is incredible because it is a VERY realistic racing simulator, that has a impressive AI that is certainly not afraid to trade paint, and it also has very good graphics with a whole lot of play time. It is really hard to say what is so great about this game, just don't hesitate to buy and see what we mean.

The AI/computer is great. The other cars u race against actually drive like people, not just drivin the EXACT same line everytime. They react and pass and bump and such, something I have not found in any other iPhone racer so far. In all the others I have played (THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE NFS) on an iPhone the other cars just drive the exact same line veryrace as if u are nt even there

A while. There are four classes with two cups each. Three difficulty levels and the last is brutally difficult. I haven't even done online stuff yet. But get it it's a fantastic game

- over 48 cars (I think)
- over 5 control methods for the car
- tons of options to play the game the way you want
- graphics are absolutely amazing
- campaign mode lasts atleast 3 weeks if you're played 10 minute periods
- online league competition: compete against other players for CR
- upload replays to Youtube
- driving is very realistic

mainly everything theone has said
and @ pug4death i must be one of the few who prefers arcade racers here do you prefer arcade or sim?
also one thing i wish theyd add in a update are some line races. or if they went all the way and added arcade style mode with upgrades(yeah probably wont ever happen but a guy hope i guess, just a thought on that: NFSU would be obsolete... )

I've really enjoyed both kind I've had lots of fun with games like gran turismo as well as a need for speed. And I thought they just added multiplayer with people on the same wifi. I'm probably gonna get real racing now
