- Right off, pretty fast loading, and good UI. Went straight to controls, and saw an interesting feature. When you change the control scheme, it shows a preview of it. It has accelerometer turning along with a steering wheel and just a right and left turning buttons. You can turn off auto-accelerate, too.
- I actually like the physics, but it might just be me. I can definitely tell this will be a keeper. Pretty challenging. I'm really enjoying the game. Definitely recommended if you like racing, but it might be a bit too hard (maybe) if you are a casual gamer. Truly worth the money.

EDIT: The realization that there aren't any opponents (thought the first track was just a time trial or a qualifier) is disappointing, I still enjoy the game. If you don't mind just driving to beat a time, still recommended. Fans of racing might not approve. Still loving it!

The game features a full scale damage system, not only on the optical part but also with consequences on the driving experience. The co drivers voice guides you through the 23 races of the career mode. Weather effects are also available (rain, snow), repair of car via mini games our via AI automatically.

For all German readers out there, you can find a detailled preview and news about the game on my page. Anyway if you have some detailled question about the game or special parts, feel free to ask.

Also the game should not be compared to Real Racing and/or NFS, as it is a Rally Simulation with full damage and weather system, not a arcade street racer.

Thats bad because as an experienced Colin McRae User I could always play every single track in several difficulty levels (and so would never loose track variety staying in hard difficulty), so in Rally Master Pro I will never return to easy once I passed because I will win every race instantly, medium also not I think... In CMR also stayed at the end only in hard.

So in the end I will have only 9 tracks to play in this game here, the time length is mostly extremly shocking short in comparison to Colin McRae 2.0

Too short and not enough amount, sad I hope fishlabs enables for replay the other 18 tracks for "hard"...

Graphics so far are top notch, easily better than Real Racing! The car models alone...

Nice mix between asphalt only, dirt only and asphalt+dirt, quite great variety! Also some asphalt tracks have on the side a stripe of stones/dirt, that slows you more down than green, great for tech perfectionist, CMR2 had that too The tracks are also not flat, they have hills, or street crossings (rails for example) which give the car a little jump.

So what's about the car physics? The car feels a bit too much like a ton-heavy tank and also slides not enough, in CMR with the right settings and steering you could make at grade 5 courves nearly an 180 turn, not possible here, the CMR programmers are still perfectionists at their physics, so this tank-feeling in Rally Master Pro is quite a critisism, hope they change the physics rules in an update.

I also brought for test purposes my car to 60 % damage level, the damage model is a joke in comparison to CMR, it barely exists, haven't really an effect on driving...

So in the end the game doens't even come close to the one and only rally game series Colin McRae, but because there isn't any other rally rival in the appstore, it will stay quite a bit on my iPhone because I am a racing game junkie

They are kinda lame. There are 2 sets of touch controls in this one. Theres a racing wheel that you can turn, which is kinda annoying, and two buttons that simulate left and right. The tilt is pretty annoying. Im using the button controls(left and right buttons) and its working pretty well. The other thing that annoys me is that touching the sides of the road slows your car down like crazy, you have to basically balance your car to be on the narrow roads. I wish there were other cars to actually race against. Fish Labs, you guys did great work on G.o.F, and I love racing games, but I would stick with Real Racing instead of this. $6.99 for both games, Real Racing has a lot more gameplay and realism into it. This game does have pretty good graphics, but the controls and realism isn't the cup of tea.

Hope this helped

To me tilt steering is one of the things that set this platform apart from any other except possibly the Wii. There's plenty of room for this, RR, NFS, and other stellar driving games
out there. And about the pricing, perhaps it should be slightly less, but it seems that you feel this is some purposeful spiting of Europeans...I highly doubt that from a German developer. Also, I don't remember this huge uproar when all of Konami's games were on sale everywhere but the U.S. Suck it up.
