‘Real Racing 2 HD’ Released onto the App Store

Firemint seems to have been hard at work and have finally released the HD version of its popular Real Racing 2.

But before you write it off as “just another HD version”, there seem to have been a lot of improvements from the iPhone version, mainly cosmetic along with iPad 2 optimizations such as full-screen anti-aliasing, fully-modeled vehicle interiors visible through translucent windows, high-detail objects and surfaces and enhanced reflections.

Along with that, Real Racing 2 HD supports the iPad 2’s gyroscope and precision steering, all making up to quite a tantalizing package.

Another cool feature is the ability to transfer game saves from your iPhone game to the iPad version, most likely using their Cloudcell technology.  It’s definitely a useful feature if you don’t want to go through the campaign again, although I’m quite looking forward to playing this all over on a bigger screen.

Real Racing 2 HD is available now for $9.99, and more details about the game can be found here.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
