Got this on my Nexus 7.

Leagues better than the first...

From graphics- lighting and water effects are stunning

To the increase in challenge (main reason i stopped playing the first entry)

AND multiplayer (not for me, but it's awesome, nonetheless)

Pretty damn cool and complete for the low asking price.

What's the deal with the $100 IAP awp mentioned in the Android thread?

I wouldn't worry about it - at least for the career mode.
I'm not sure how it'll affect MP though. Haven't played online yet, but there may be cause for concern for those that "pay-to-win".

Thus far in the campaign, I haven't seen a need for IAPs. It is a bit more challenging than the first game, but that's a good thing. Overall, it doesn't seem unbalanced.

I also don't know who in their right mind would pay $99.99 for $5,000,000 in in-game cash when the best jet ski is $300,000 (upgrades do cost additional, but still far from warranting the need for $5 million).

The game gives enough in race winnings as well as additional money from leveling up that you can upgrade at a decent pace. For the later races, can't say for absolute sure, but I think IAPs are optional at this point.

While playing through the Career Modus you are earning Upgrade- & Skill-Points, with those points you can update your Skills to get more Stunts or to increase the Booster Among you are getting after you have done successfully an Stunt.

The Upgrade Points are used to upgrade your Jet-Ski and make it faster or improve the handling .

If someone doesn`t want to play through the hole Game and have the fastest Jet-Ski right from the Start and all Stunts he could also buy that $99 iAP

I only just noticed that this is a 50 mb download. Seems kind of small for an iOS game nowadays.
