Racing: Arc. vs Sim.

Racing: Arcade vs Simulated

First state which type of racer (arc or sim) you prefer for the idevice, and state why.
Arcade: nitro, excessive drifting, etc (e.g. Asphalt 5)
Simulated: you have an accelerator and brakes. (e.g. Real Racing)

Pick one of the racers in the poll or select other, being your favorite of course.

Then if it's not too much trouble provide a short synopsis (few words or a sentence) on the following aspects of the racer:
-graphics
-handling (controls, responsiveness)
-gameplay (AI difficulty, replayability, etc.)
-special (whatever made it stand out in any way)

Thanks for your time if you decided to participate.

Disclaimer: I own all the racers, so no this does not belong in the 'What should I get?" thread. This is merely to spark some discussion, and selfishly for my own purposes to an extent. No there is not another thread like this with all the new racers included.

When choosing other on the poll, make sure it falls under the arc/sim catagories: no future racers, kart racers, offroad racers, motorcycle racers, etc.

You posted "our opinions" on which type of racer we prefer and why?

No disrespect but if JCS doesn't deserve a spot from "my" opinion as a racer (time trials, ghost races, etc...) then I say you need to be a little more specific in your opening post. That's my opinion...Thank you.

Orthodox:
Just cars and laps. No heavy influence on stunt driven gameplay.
