GT Racing 2 Review: Simulator Only in Name, Tested on Allview X1 Soul Handset (Video)
We’ve had the privilege of playing with the Allview X1 Soul handset for a few days and we tested a game on it. It’s a racing game from Gameloft, or better said a simulator, as the maker of the device claims.
The game was launched on November 13th, it takes 1 GB of storage and it’s not exactly a simulator as Gameloft claims. For one thing, the title offers unrealistic physics, no real feel of car damage, but also a hefty amount of cars to play with. You get 1400 events, 4 camera views, 67 licensed cars and 13 tracks. You can race with Mercedes Benz models, Ferrari classics, BMW, Lamborghini, Mazda and many more.
You’ll get a variety of weather conditions and times of day to play with. There’s multiplayer available here as well, in a more efficient way than in Real Racing 3. Each vehicle has its own campaign available and now getting to the bad side of the game, there are lots of in app purchases here and some car upgrades will actually require hours to complete.
I wasn’t very impressed by the graphics here, but the AI is pretty tough, giving you a run for the money. The car control tends to be a bit chaotic, so there’s that. Overall, this is not a simulator of any kind, but rather your usual arcade racing game and certainly not Gran Turismo. The title gets a 7 out of 10 from us and you can download it from here.
