I have fond memories of heated racing sessions in the back of Shakey's Pizza as child. My skills were put to the test because I was only given one quarter by my parents to play. If I finished in last place once, it was back to the table staring at a plate of pizza crust. That kind of trial by fire training whips you into shape pretty quickly. After seeing screens and reading that Formula Racing was being compared to Super Sprint, I was definitely looking forward to giving it a go.
Most racing games have a similar premise. Drive 3 or 4 laps around a track and overcome your opponents to come in first. Although Real Racing has pretty much run away with the crown as king of the iPhone racers, this game doesn't pretend to be in that class. Formula Racing is more about simple racing fun, much like its arcade game roots. It brings you back to why you play games in the first place, for a good time."
