CONS

  • The Ferrari engine roar isn’t quite right.
  • The controls are somewhat temperamental.
  • No iPod music options are available.

Ferrari GT Evolution is a clone of Forza 2 for the iPhone, featuring an exclusive line-up of Ferraris. The game features a number of different game modes and allows players the chance to get behind the wheel of a large selection of some of the greatest sports cars ever made.

You control your Ferrari by using the two on screen pedals to accelerate and brake while you steer by tilting the iPhone from side to side. The controls are simple, but often hard to use effectively. Steering is too sensitive and not sensitive enough at the same time, which can frustrate players. And it’s quite easy to go into a drift when you are trying to brake and slow down for a corner.

The visuals look good and are presented in full 3D. The sound is decent enough quality, but the distinct roar of the Ferrari hasn’t quite been captured. Also players are unable to use their iPod during gameplay, but hopefully this can be fixed with an update. The game has a number of different game modes including Career, Quick Race and Multiplayer.

Ferrari GT Evolution is definitely a game for Ferrari buffs. The range of 33 authentic Ferrari models, both old and new, will well and truly fulfil any fantasy you might have about owning a car worth half a million dollars. There are some control issues, and the sound is a bit of a let down, but there are still some fun game modes to play that will give you your Ferrari ‘fix’.
