Real Racing 2 : This is the cream of the crop when it comes to racing games. No matter the device or console, racing games need to be fluid, run at high frames per second, and feel at least a little realistic in terms of handling and pushing high speeds on the track. Real Racing 2 has that in spades, with a full 1080p resolution on the iPad 2 version that you can wirelessly mirror to an HDTV via AppleTV and AirPlay. That’s not even mentioning the 48 realistic cars across 4 classes and 12 unique tracks in a variety of environments, nor the 76-event career mode, which allows racers to upgrade their dream machine.
The online multiplayer supports up to 4 players at a time over the Internet, and up to 6 racers over local Wi-Fi, allowing racing battles that rival those of the high-end console games. I’ve never been a huge fan of simulation racing games, but this one has earned a spot on my iPad since day one.
