Just bought this. Already have vs. Racing but I'm a sucker for games like sketch nation where you make you own things.
Post back later with impressions.

Right well I've done the first 7 racers and made my own car.
First off the car creation works nice and easy, just to test it out I drew a basic car on some paper took a pic and it worked first time and looked sweet In the game. The actuall racing is very nice the handling is cool, drifting a little when turning tightly. The tracks are all well done with nice little touches like the skid marks staying on the track for the entire race and adding to this there are patches of paint around the track, driving through them your car leaves tire marks of the paint colour for a few seconds (which also stay for the entire race).
So far it's looking like a very nice racer and a no brainer if your a racer fan as for 59p it's a bargain. Even if like me you like the whole thing of oooo look that's my creation in the game (like skecth nation) then it's still worth getting.

Hope this helps people a bit with the decisions.

Holy snot this looks good. I watched the trailer, and am very impressed with the particle system. It looks like there's spilled paint everywhere on the tracks, and your tires realistically smear it all over. So cool.

Totally agree with oooooomonkey I'm having a blast with this so far and the neat little touches of skidmarks are great . The AI seems to be set about right with a little rubber banding . I have lots of top downs on my iPhone and this is definitely in my top 3 and the fact you can add your own creation to the game is the iceing on the cake . Is the worth your buck without a doubt .

I bought it for my ipad 2. For a buck its really fun. If you are on the fence it scales up nicely and is really worth it on the ipad also. Maybe someday it will be universal but the upscaling doesnt affect the graphics much on a game done graphically like this and the controls are still easy to reach. 2 thumbs or 5 stars up in my opinion.
