That's what I was getting at. Does it look like crap 2X?

I know the iPad version isn't out, but I want to play the game...

More than likely I'll hold off, but if it's going to be several months, I'd buy it again.

However, if it looks terrible pixel doubled I'll just wait.

There's no info on how good/bad the pixel double looks anywhere on the net or YouTube.

RR2 is my favorite racing game on iPod touch 4, but it looks absolutely terrible at 2x on iPad - especially the city courses in which the fences and telephone lines seem to dance like crazy. It could be fun for a while in 1x mode with assists (aarlburg track didn't look too bad), but I'd wait for the native version. I've actually never played Real Racing HD, by the way.

Is this still fun for a casual racing fan? I've enjoyed Asphalt and NFSU, but I'm wondering if this is too hardcore for me. (It was hard for me to get into RR1 because of the lack of licensed cars.)

Well I already said that it's okay if someone differs opinion with me, but if they have an uneducated reason, then their argument won't be put into consideration by me. I guess you completely ignored my entire post. Anyways, let's take a look at his "argument" now that I have some time:

TA isn't Firemint's website. Firemint.com is their website. They're dedicating most of their customer service at Firemint.com/support, so he should not be complaining of the lack of attention Firemint is putting here. They will be checking this thread only periodically and not as actively as their own site, so obviously quite a few problems on this thread will be missed. And again, regarding his hardware issues, Firemint has already helped sort out some problems, but he needs to be able to understand Firemint addresses their own website first and foremost.

Even if we assume he somehow magically missed the Quick Race button (a mode designed specifically for just driving a race without doing qualifiers, entry fees, customizing, etc.), careers only require you to press a couple more buttons. Also, the requirements are always able to be fulfilled after completing the previous career events, so you can just keep progressing on without needing to repeat something multiple times to meet the requirements.

Firstly, Firemint is based in Australia. Gameloft is based in Europe, more specifically France but I'm not 100% sure. Naturally Firemint will be primarily English while Gameloft incorporates some more languages. While I do sympathize with him and believe that companies need to start looking at a more international basis when it comes to this, translating a game (especially one on the scope of Real Racing 2) will take a decent translator as well as time. I have seen in reviews in both the internet and the App Store saying many of Gameloft's foreign translations are very sloppy. Considering the level of English Habakuk has displayed in his "argument", I'm sure that reading English will be as good as reading whatever language he desires to read in written sloppily as a result of some low-effort translating.

All career races are RESTRICTED (I hate that word)I can only do two races with two Fords and Mustangs in it. That was it

What shall I do now? Clear all stats and start from the very beginning? Oh no! I can't sell the BMW because it's my only car! I am stuck now with some time trials and quick races. Career (devs call it "the heart of RR") seems to be finished for me after two lousy hours of gameplay. I want my money back!

Why let they buy me an expensive car and then I can't make use of it in career? Man that's so STUPID!!! Hard to believe. They should recommend some cars that are good for my career. This forum and the official support forum is full with questions: "What car should I get?" You're done if you choose the wrong car!
Firstly, it's his fault for buying a car way ahead of his event. And for him complaining he can't use a high performance car in his event, think about this: In the real world, are people just gonna let one person use a Ferrari while other guys are just driving average Volvos?

Next, earning money in Real Racing 2 to make up for buying a car you shouldn't have bought is not that hard.

Finally, they let you buy cars out of your current career event's requirements because people want better cars for multiplayer.

Again, firemint.com/support is the best way to go. I do acknowledge plenty of people are having issues with the game, but this game isn't just some bugfest that Firemint released way too early. It preforms extremely well on even some first generation devices, and besides, Firemint has already worked out some issues on their own support page. So again, I highly advise Habakuk and anyone else to go to their own support page for the fastest service.

If this is seriously something you're going to put as a reason calling the game out, then it must be a damn good game. People have different skill levels on all sorts of games. He might think Easy is too easy and Medium is too hard, but I find Medium easy as well, while Hard is too impossible. Then there will those people that think every difficulty is easy. JCS is a great example. That game is extremely frustrating and hard for some, while others might find it a breeze to go through. I apologize if he has done this earlier, but a wiser decision for Habakuk is to ask how to get better at the game first before saying the game is bad because it's hard.

Mostly of the time you'll find yourself driving with no bumper or a hanging bumper. Not very pretty to watch.

Online races are frustrating as well with those F1 drivers. You have no chance. Unusable as long you have no F1 car.

The leaderboards (very long loading times) are showing up some unknown guys but never my player name (even when I tap on "Find Me"). Mentioned several times in this thread. Any solution for this heavy bug? Unreliable leaderboards! So what I am working for?
As for these, I agree with him. However, consider these:
- The car decoration thing is really minor. Now that you can respray cars and stuff, this isn't TOO big of an issue.
- I must agree that the bumper thing was a bad decision. I appreciate that Firemint wanted a realer game, but this was just a poor effort. Either make the car fully degradable, or not make those effects at all. It may have even hampered the licensing of some really nice cars in the game
- Firemint has already been plagued with critics that are displeased with the lack of tiers in multiplayer. While I can't give solid proof that they are working on changing this, I can promise this issue isn't something Firemint is just going to let go.
- The leaderboard bug is already being addressed by the dev team, as reported by someone working on the support forums at firemint.com.

Again, see above.

From this sentence alone, as well as how he is done with this game just because of "tough" restrictions, it's clear he prefers arcade racers. But I'm not going to use an assumption as the core of my argument.

Jus sayin, from out of nowhere that hard is easy IF you drive near perfect laps and never make a mistake. I like the challenge, makes the game more enjoyable IMO.

Do some Quick Races with the laps turn to the max, and get a feel of the map and the turns and where your speed should be around the course. Once you feel good about it, go to Time Trial and start perfecting it until you have a pretty fast time.

That makes little sense. If it's easy, then it's not challenging. If it's challenging, then it's not easy. My experience is that it's easy except when it's not, and not except when it is.

I don't understand why the online lobby isn't divided into classes, it's quite stupid and makes no sense at all, it makes the online not worth playing and I now regret wasting $10 on this game. The career is good but not worth the price tag and if they don't fix this issue then I fear they are going to loose alot of business as they will certaintly loose mine. I also feel this platform is going nowhere, sure the graphics keep getting better but we all know that doesn't make a game good.
