2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Try September 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
You can tell that an effort was made in creating this car game, but there are way better ones. Real Racing 3 is free and pretty fun, and Asphalt 8 is awesome for only $0.99.

Pros:
+ Good Graphics
+ Smooth Gameplay
+ Detailed Tracks
+ No IAPs
+ Only One Permission

Cons:
- Really Slow Progression
- Extremely Limited Car Selection
- Difficult Controls
- $0.99 (Usually - I got it as a FAOTD)
- Boring/Dull

Bottom Line: An okay FAOTD. There are way better racing games though.

(Note: If you found my review to be unhelpful, please tell me why so I can improve in the future. I try my best to make my reviews as helpful as possible. Thanks!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, flawed execution September 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
First of all I'd like to say that this game looks great. Graphics are detailed and realistic.

The "tilt screen" method of steering your car feels almost like using a steering wheel, and I think was a nice game mechanic. The problems with steering are two-fold. First, there is no tutorial to explain how it's done. Only by stumbling around through the options screen was I able to finally figure out how to steer the car. Second, the steering is far too sensitive and far too slow to recover when you return your "wheel" to straight ahead. For a game that you aren't going to devote your life to mastering, it needs to be a bit more simple for the player to succeed.

Next, there is a MAJOR bug in the game. It often decides that you are going the wrong way on the track when you are definitely going in the correct direction on the track.

Devs: Tweak the steering and get rid of the bug and I could give your game five stars. As it sits I probably won't even load it again.

For free, if you like car racing games I'd definitely give this a try.

I played this game on a Kindle 8.9 HD, and encountered only the issues noted above.

For a racing fan, this is a good game. Unfortunately, there are a few things I dislike about the game.

Graphics 5/5: Graphics are great. I don't remember the old days, but I'd say these graphics are pretty similar to GT3 (but it doesn't have nearly the same content).

Controls 5/5: This is a racing game on a smartphone/tablet. Many people will criticize it here because it is a little difficult to start, but for racing enthusiasts, I think they will figure it out soon. I tried the tilt controls for two races, didn't like it, switched to the buttons, and was decently happy. Again, this is not as refined as console controls, but I was happy with it.

Sound 3/5: You know when you're accelerating and braking, but the music was pretty bland (low bitrate). This is something that can be improved but no stars removed for this.

Gameplay 2/5: This is where I have beef with the game. First off, you MUST complete the challenges to continue the game. You start on challenge 1 and there appears to be 30. Sounded fine to me. However, after beating the first challenge, you replay the EXACT same map with different specifications: beat this car this time. Okay, that's fine, I'll do it once again. Now, I'm on challenge 3 and it's the EXACT SAME MAP AGAIN. I don't want to race the same map (and two laps instead of one), for three challenges in a row. I didn't unlock any of the new cars or any of the new maps. Let me race something else. I stopped here and decided to write a review because I don't want this to continue on for 5 challenges (and because while holding down the right arrow my car veered off to the left and caused me to lose the challenge. I am on the new Nexus 7 though, so I won't blame the developer).

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands down the best rally racer on the Android September 7, 2013
By Vander
Verified Purchase
Speaking from hours of experience on the best rally simulator, Colin McRae Rally on the PC, and actual amateur rally racing myself, You will not get a better really racing experience on the Android than Pocket Rally. It's hard to believe that a phone can produce this level of complex physics models. The math equations that allow you to experience this would break most people's brains in half. This game is hard to master and that is the point, you're actually going toto have to work at it and become better and better as you continually learn the subtle nuances of rally racing. Find a line through the curve and execute. The best advice I have is like in real racing do not over compensate. Thank You Amazon for providing such a great game I never would have seen otherwise. And thank you to the developers who I know must have a passion for rally racing for providing a game that is absolutely the best rally racing experience on the phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great racing game. September 7, 2013
By RSM61
Verified Purchase
This game takes some time to get used to if you're used to racing asphalt tracks. I tried the 'lite' version on my Nexus 7 tablet and it didn't play too well. This full version on my original Kindle Fire plays VERY GOOD, which surprises me a lot. I'll eventually install it on the Nexus to see if it's the game, or the tablet. Oh yeah, to one of the other commenters on here, if you want to slow your car, you use your BRAKE, not BREAK.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Should I feel like I'm ice skating? September 7, 2013

I feel like I'm ice skating? I don't know, I've never actually done this kind of racing in real life. The game is very nice visually, but I agree with others that I think it needs a little work.
