Initial impressions:

-graphics are well done for what the iDevice is capable of. Definitely more detailed than Real Racing in terms of scenery/objects on screen.

-Love the dust particles that kick up if you drive into the dirt/grass areas

-A decent amount of options and assists to tweak including horizon tilt, control layouts and accelerometer sensitivity.

-Sounds get the job done but nothing to write home about

-As mentioned in by others and in previews, there's no 'career' mode per se as your only stuck with time trial and endurance racing trying to get a high average lap time over a number of laps

I've only put in about 15min but its a good first go for Codemasters although I wish they would have fleshed out the offerings as far as having a beefy Career mode. The price is a tad high for what you get if your a casual fan of the genre, but if your a racing fan looking for another fairly polished racer, it's hard to pass up.

3/5 if I had to rate the game based on initial impressions
