Pocket Gamer: Rally Master Pro iPhone review

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor accelerometer puts the brakes on rally racing. Tackling one of the world's most gruelling racing events, Rally Master Pro turns over a beautiful, challenging run that could benefit from a tune up to reach its full potential.

More than any other type of racing, rally revolves around handling. From responsive controls to variations in terrain that realistically influence your driving, Rally Master Pro handles confidently. Three schemes are offered: a stock tilt method, a touch-enabled scheme with a virtual steering wheel, and another referencing left and right directional buttons.

The accelerometer scheme is solid, though not as precise as the D-pad option. Tapping the 'left' and 'right' buttons yields more precise handling than tilting your handset. Of course, it's not a matter of the motion controls being broken: on the contrary, they're functional, just not as tight as the D-pad scheme. There's a trade off, however, as drifting through turns is much easier using the accelerometer than with touch controls.

Got to admit, I find this game just a tad slow. It's too unforgiving when you stray just slightly off the track, and if you muck up even once, it's game over.

Still, this review does point out some strong features, which I completely agree with. Good review.
