John Bedford (Modojo): Perhaps this freemium installment in the Real Racing series is simply a sign of the times and shifting attitudes towards free-to-play gaming. Perhaps so many people obtained the previous two games by illicit means that Firemonkey and EA simply felt this was the only sensible option - we all know what happened to Dead Trigger after all.
But maybe - just maybe - they took a look at the news that CSR Racing publisher NaturalMotion was making $12million dollars in revenue each month from its title and thought: "You know what? We'll have some of that." Have no doubt that there is much to be said about the monetization of this highly anticipated game, and we'll be discussing this important topic in-depth later on in the review, but for now let's talk about the game itself. 3/5
