I've just got to finish posting the games I've found (only about five more) and I'll get on to playing them. I play all the free ones before I post for a few seconds just to make sure they're not absolutely awful but I'll have more detailed impressions soon

Man, second racer of the night - Flashout 2 being the other - that has my interest piqued. The past Red Bull games were decent, but this looks really nice. Once again, however, I want to know about the freemium structure as well.

Only played a couple races, but so far it's really cool. It's kind of like Groove Racer if anybody has ever played that. It's one touch gas pedal and a button to switch lanes. Graphics are really nice and there are tons of upgrades. You seem to earn money fairly easy, but I AM still in the beginning stages, so of course everything is cheap right now. So far my only down side is the usual F2P "gas tank" where you can only race so many times before you have to wait (unless you buy the premium currency to speed things up.) I didn't see a full unlock IAP, but with it being free, I would recommend trying it out. It's pretty good. I'm sure Pete or Monkey will give a more thorough review later.

NOEN has pretty much covered all the bases. It's pretty cool and I'm enjoying it a lot more than I expected. It plays most like Groove Racer as suggested, it really feels like the old Scalextric - having to feather the accelerate as you turn corners else you're flung across the room. Only this time you can instantly change tracks and ram other cars off the course from behind or the side.

There's a huge amount of content as well, it would have made a fantastic premium game. There are F1 courses, off-road and street tracks, all with over-the-top loop-the-loops and beautiful scenery. The best part is that races are against real players (at least as far as I can tell) which makes it all the more satisfying ramming them into oblivion.

As has also been covered, it is unapologetically freemium. There's an energy bar and dual currencies as well as the usual Facebook requests, though they aren't too pushy. Go into it knowing this and you shouldn't be disappointed but it's definitely an example of freemium taking what could have been a fantastic premium product and altering it in a way that many might find distasteful.
