Well the graphics look really good. I didn't try the other Fast and Furious game so I don't really know how this will feel like. Wonder if it's any good...

Anyone buy it yet? Pink Slip was only okay, so I'll be holding out on this one until initial impressions.

Looking at the screenshots, the fact that there isn't an accelerator or brake is a major turn-off for me.

Here's what I pulled from the support site:
  • Steering is achieved using the device's accelerometer. Tilt your device left and right to steer your car.
  • For cars with Nitro, tap the Nitro indicator on the left side of your screen to engage the NOS. Remember that your indicator must show full and be flashing before you can use the feature. NOS will automatically replenish over time, but some cars take longer to replenish than others..
  • To brake, touch anywhere on the main gameplay screen. A red light will show under your touch to indicate the brake is engaged.

I'm downloading it now. I have some info on this title. It should be promising. My understanding is that it's an arcade racer with goals. Movie tie in, obviously.

will post some thoughts/video soon
