The IAPs are really bad in this game.

You have a freemium-like system with two currencies (rings and stars) and you have to pay with them to do races with higher difficulty levels than easy. When you not make it to the top-3, you will get less rings than you paid before.

There is an option to unlock all races, but therefore you have to pay additional 8,99€.

The gameplay is quite nice, but when I was testing the game a week ago I thought ist would be a freemium-game without a price.

Some impressions in our gameplay-video. You can play the game with the MOGA Controller, but for the menus you still need to touch...

If you can unlock all races for that much (around $9.99 US), it's reasonable in comparison with the console and handheld price. So, no, I would not say that the IAP are "really bad" -- in fact, they're kind of ideal.

Really bad would be timers and "energy" for racing (like Real Racing 3 and ABG)

Had me worried there for a second.

Basically it's less than $15 to unlock everything then (including the original app price) and avoid all iAPs.

Seems like a steal to me.

The console version is better than Mario Kart. I know that sounds like total lies, but the tracks in this game are amazing.

Glad this is coming out, nice game to get before i return to work !

Hopefully the IAP's arent too bad, i wish devs would forget 'facebook integration' though, do people really annoy their friends/family with lots of crap like that ?

Anyway hopefully the game will be decent, instant purchase for me later

Bad in what way? Again, if you can unlock everything for a price, you have the option to go for a premium experience. What's bad about that?

Is Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue actually in it? Sega's Twitter has been teasing him all along and apparently it was just to hype up the iOS/Android release

Hmm... can everything be unlocked without paying more? I'm fine with grinding, especially in this game... I've still got the original Sonic Racing on my phone... so I'm pretty sure this one will stay on for quite some time...

Or is half the game locked off, only to be had by throwing down more money?
