Vector Unit KILLED it with this one. If you loved the first Riptide GP but felt like it lacked content, or were somewhat put off with the IAPs in Riptide GP2, Renegade is exactly what the doctor ordered. Gorgeous, controls flawlessly, fully premium, jam-packed with content and VU's traditional amazing small file size! Easily the best game in the series.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Okay this looks way cool
I have never played a game in this series so can someone tell me if there is a gas/brake or is this an auto runner type game. The former I'm okay with the latter I don't care for at all cuz then I feel I'm being cheated since this is. It FTP I don't imagine being cheated would be an issue either way.

Looks great! Is this a universal version with iPhone, iPad and AppleTV support? Or is this separate from the AppleTV version?

My understanding is that it is universal so people who paid $9.99 three weeks ago for the Apple TV version kinda got screwed.

Yeah, this is fantastic. I played a lot of Riptide 2 and this beats it hands down. Tiny price tag, fully premium, transformable vehicles, controls like a dream, there's a story in there for those that like that kinda thing and there's even cops...

It almost feels like playing a Tony Hawk game on water because there's not only jumps this time but grinds also.
