There are plenty of racing sims on the appstore, but sometimes you just feel like an arcade experience. Raging Thunder 2 has you driving as fast as possible, smashing into things and vying for first place. Earn enough cash and you can purchase new cars, and upgrade them for faster driving, and more intense smashing.

Like most iphone racers, acceleration is handled automatically and turning is tilt based. There is a button for braking and one for boosting (and you'll definitely be holding this button down for most of the race). The steering does take some getting used to as at times it's too sensitive and at other times, not sensitive enough. This can all be adjusted in the options however. There are plenty of powerups to collect while racing from boosts and extra money, to setting your wheels on fire!

The game's visuals are competent. They have a cartoony look to them, but some of the levels, like the snow tracks are really well put together. The sound is what you'd expect and the game supports ipod play. Alongside a career mode, there is arcade mode, survival, time attack and single race.

Raging Thunder 2 is a racing game that cares more about speed and fun than it does being realistic. Racing fans should take some enjoyment from it. Another solid racer for the iphone.
