- App Store Info
In the same vein as futuristic racers like Wipeout and F-Zero, Low Grav Racer 2 is Cobra Mobile's second attempt at bringing high-speed, face melting combat-based racing to the App Store.
Much of the inconsistency that plagued the previous game's controls have returned proving to be too sensitive at slow speeds and almost dead at high speeds, but thankfully the addition of sensitivity options and practice can make this manageable. The physics are fairly fanciful and make it difficult to maintain a line for maximum speed, so first place runs will either require some luck or a fair amount of practice to obtain.
It's so nice to play a racing game where the AI isn't tethered using a rubber-band, though this also means you'll either find yourself dead last with no way of catching up or so far ahead that you forget you're even racing. Savor the moments where you're amongst the pack fighting for the lead position, because they're frantic and genuinely fun. Plenty of powerups litter the game from boosts to the ability to stop time, but once again they'll mean little if you have no opposition to fire them at.
Of course it should be said that the graphics are superb and this is a small wonder when you're flying about the level at manic speeds. The environments are beautiful and diverse, with level designs that at harder levels wrap around elegantly. Once you're on your way there's plenty to unlock and enjoy, a great game for fans of high-speed racers.
