Not on Real Racing 3's level
This game has potential, and the trailer got me excited. The cars handle terribly. I've tried adjusting the settings, but even the most broken cars in Real Racing 3 handle better than a perfect car in this game. Every time I play, I am in awe of how hard it is to steer. It's out of control, and I am a diehard Real Racing 2 and 3 player. The interface and menus are very confusing. Stars, coins, gold bars... It's very complicated. The trophy structure is very complicated. This game, if tidied up and streamlined could be good. They really need to do something about the handling of the cars though. I probably won't play until they update it, and I'd hold off on spending money on this game until they make it more playable.

Plays well, but not a fan of the gimmicks
I really want to love this game as I am a huge fan of the Project Gotham series that I know some of this team is responsible for. The game plays well on the latest iPad, and looks fantastic as well. With a $7.00 price tag I was hoping for less of a gimmicky experience... The "boosts" you can purchase that last only a single race, for example, remind me more of the freemium experience that I spent $7.00 to avoid... All in all its okay, but not worth the price tag at this point. When can we get a true gaming experience?? I'm tired of the freemium influence! I certainly don't want to pay $7.00 for a repeat of Real Racing!

I want to love it, but its hard
Too many crashes. Slow performance even on the newest iPad. The menus take too long to load. Images look pixelated. I purchased the special founder pack before starting to play. I believe this game can be the best on iOS but there are way too many bugs.

Not a money hogging one like RR3
As a racing game fan, I prefer 2k drive much more than RR3, which has been turned into an ugly "cashier" where EA wants people to pay for cars, repairing, new championships... What a shame! Both games have great graphic and refined control. They are really on bar as great simulators, except for the ridiculous purchase mechanism RR3 adopted. For people who haven't played thru the first championship and already think 2K is greedy as RR3, I suggest u just hold your contempt on immediately provided Fiat 500 and win a race. U will find it much easier to earn money for purchasing new cars, tuning, repairing... You don't have to pay anything more than the initial $7, unless u are horribly impatient.
Which nickname is not taken???!!! Please~ on Sep 6, 2013 for 2K DRIVE

Needs Improvement
First off, this game has a lot of promise. It's very easy to accumulate stars and gold coins. After only playing for three hours I have accumulated over 90 coins, enough to buy the highest car the game offers. This is a huge plus compared to Real Racing 3. In-app purchases are available, but they don't nickel and dime you to death. It's quite easy to purchase your first car and race in some challenges or events to start accumulating gold coins. The downside so far are the controls. The steering of each car is awful. I even test drove higher-end cars and the steering is off on those as well. Having to turn the iPad 90° or more just to get a car to turn is too much. The cars also don't seem to have a correcting mechanism when steering. If you happen to slide in the turn there is way too much movement needed by tilting the iPad Mini to correct the path of the car. The game also crashes somewhat often. Just in the few hours that I've played the game crashed three times. Overall this game is good. It's nice not to be nagged to death with in-app purchases, like Real Racing 3. Future updates will make this game better I'm sure. Once they work out the steering issue, the crashing problem and the overall smoothness of the game, it will be a five star game worth $7. In the games current state however, Real Racing 3's game play is much better.

Not Bad So Far
Still getting used to it, but pretty fun. I'm coming from RR3 which is much more sophisticated in graphics and modeling, but has been ruined by the heavy requirements for IAP (literally hundreds of dollars). This is a nice break, and so far I am enjoying it. C'mon over and try it!
