I was the target audience for The Fast and the Furious when it came out in 2001. I was the member of a car club, I owned a Honda and I had friends who were tuners. We knew some of the owners of the cars in the movie, including the guy who owned the Supra that ended up becoming the hero of the flick. It was an interesting part of my life to be sure.

But today, 12 years later with two kids and a wife, I’m no longer that guy. I’ll watch the F&F movies, but at this point it’s all about entertainment, not wishing I could get my car in the film. So what appeal will Fast & Furious 6 — a game based on the latest installment in the series — do for me? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)

When the PlayStation 2 slim released in late 2004, I desperately wanted one. Of course, so did every other kid on the block. Those weren’t just the days of golden gaming, they were the days of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. There was nothing like a game of getting away from the highway patrolmen in a fast car. Even if it wasn’t real, there was a certain thrill to the game. That’s just how the Need for Speed games make you feel: like you’re there, in the car, fighting for freedom of the coastal roads with your Lamborghini Murcielago. Preferably the green one.

Then, last year, the new, revamped Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit came to the iPad and iPhone. I thought it’d be the best day of my life once again. Sadly, while the game was fun, the experience wasn’t as good as the first two in the series and I completed the game within a week. But EA has returned this year with yet another reconditioned title — Need for Speed: Most Wanted. It’s on all the major consoles and iOS, so why not buy it? Well … (more…)

There are many racers out there for iOS that all have their own unique mechanics. This, however, is a pretty different one from the bunch. With a top-down view and arcade-style gameplay, this isn’t what you’d expect from a fully-fledged racer.

Mini Motor Racing is a fast-paced frenzy to the finish in small, chubby vehicles that scream cuteness. It has solid visuals, great gameplay and a heck of a load of fun in store. Is it good enough to oppose other similar games like Reckless Getaway? Let’s find out. (more…)

It’s Game Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all this week we’re going to have tons of reviews, giveaways and other good stuff, all centered around the gaming world!

If you’re looking for a racing game that stands out from the crowd and is highly addicting, Slingshot Racing could be the perfect fit. With a style that harkens back to the days when arcade games were popular, but also reminiscent of the Angry Birds series, Slingshot Racing will leave you wanting more.

So, does this game have the potential to be as popular as Cut the Rope or Temple Run? Read on to decide if you’ll be sleeping at the wheel or racing to the finish line! (more…)

Racing games have had mass success on the iPhone due to the fact developers can make use of the steering wheel-type gameplay through motion control. It still remains one of the most popular genres on iOS today.

If you like adrenaline-fuled rushes to the finish line, look no further. Here are twelve of the best racing apps out there that will surely quench your thirst for speed. (more…)

Coincidentally being released soon after the Miami Heat won the NBA Playoffs, Asphalt 7: Heat is the latest addition to the Asphalt series. The previous instalment, Adrenaline, is a pretty hard act to follow, and with big names like Real Racing two on the rise, is this new release enough to make it in todays market?

The game involves fast-paced gameplay coupled with brilliant graphics that make this one hell of a ride. Whilst the core gameplay is much the same as it’s predecessor, Asphalt 7 has all the makings to be the top racing game for iOS. Let’s find out more after the jump.  (more…)

The App Store is chock-full of driving and flying games of every kind. There are games in which you pilot a spaceship, or a Lamborghini, or an F-22 Raptor, and through every imaginable kind of terrain and situation. Despite all these different games, Jet Car Stunts manages to take the basic idea of a driving game and add an impressive new element that makes it radically unique.

As you could probably tell by the title, the added element is that your car has a powerful jet engine mounted on the back. But instead of just using the jet engine as an over complicated speed boost, it also functions to propel you forward when you’re airborne. And flying through the air at remarkable speeds is quite a big part of Jet Car Stunts. (more…)

I’m a big fan of racing games, and since the first iPhone came out, these types of games have been the best for this device, since the accelerometer gives you a very nice driving feeling. There are a lot of competitors in this game category, though. Some of them are very realistic, like Real Racing 2, and others not so much. The great thing about Asphalt 6 : Adrenaline is that it mixes realism with some cool features, and is very fun to play. Read on for a preview of what this game has to offer.

The iPhone is now an established gaming platform, particularly for racing games. But what about the iPad? Does it make sense to hold the large device between your hands and turn it like a steering wheel? Electronic Arts thinks so, and they have two games from the popular Need for Speed franchise that aim to prove a point.

So we figured we’d put both Need for Speed: Shift and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit under the magnifying glass and see if either of them can take the heat.
