QuickAdvice: Fast & Furious Adrenaline
Fast & Furious Adrenaline ($5.99) by I-play is your chance to live out the action from the underground street racing movie right on your iPhone. You can choose your car from 35 different styles and features include an online leaderboard and bluetooth multiplayer challenges. If you really want to show off you can record your best drives and share them on Facebook.
You start the game in LA, you must join a crew and defend your turf, from there you can try to conquer more territories by winning underground street races. The graphics are impressive and the overall gameplay is immersive and satisfying. The backdrops in the territories and the car choices are also excellent. Each of the 35 cars available is uniquely prepared and has individual characteristics which affect the speed, acceleration and drift of your ride. The cars even react to their surrounding and you inflict real damage to traffic cones and barriers that you hit. You can also upgrade your cars as you win more races to create the ultimate racing machine.
The race settings allow you to play in a few different modes including cop chase, time trial and drag race so you must select the right car depending on the race. The beauty of these game modes is that theres always something to do, even if you only have a few minutes to play. If you and a friend both have the app then this opens up a whole new world of multi-player games too. You can connect your devices by WiFi or bluetooth and thrash it out on the streets head to head. The integrated social networking features are some of the best I have seen so far in the app store. Not only can you post online high scores to Facebook but your best races can be uploaded directly to Facebook via a video upload feature right from within the app.
Fast and Furious is the one of the best street racing games available for iPhone. The graphics and gameplay alone should be enough for most users to love this game but I the Facebook video upload feature has opened up a whole new dimension the app.
