Who else is playing it and on what? I currently have it on my mini and love it. I've always been a huge fan of racing games and this one is excellent so far. Performance is great and everything about this game brings me back to the ps2 days and gran Turismo 4. From the music to the way the tracks are, how upgrades are handled, menus. Everything. The graphics are also gran Turismo 4 like. They're great for am iPad. They don't even come close to ps3 but they've certainly caught up with what the best of last gen had to offer. Overall, solid game so far. Performs great on the A5.

I play on my iPad with retina (4th Gen.). The graphics are simply amazing and the gameplay is fantastic. The only thing I don't like is having to use real money for something other than the app purchase. I would rather pay an upfront fee rather than in-app purchases. However, this doesn't keep me from playing.

Through a Reddit post, it was suggested to just buy the Silva and keep racing until you build up money and driver's performance rating. Not sure how far one can get doing that but ....

Good article -- thanks!

But, it looks like I'll have to change my racing ways to minimize damage. No more using the AI car in front of me instead of my brakes so I can come into a turn faster. :cool: No more using the outside car on a turn to keep me on the track at a higher speed than the turn would normally allow. :cool: And, no more bumping the lead car from behind on the last turn if I haven't been able to make my move yet. :cool: Well, that last one might still be worth the repair. :D

I feel exactly the same way! Playing this brought me back to GT4, just graduating highschool, locking myself in the basement with my PS2.... If only the physics were more like the GT series I would find myself playing it a lot more. Braking/Acceleration isn't as immediate as I'd like and as a result of being used to GT4/GT5, I can't drive worth a lick in RR3.

It will cost me $33k minimum to get to the next series of races to enter. That would be for the Nissan Skyline GTR V Spec R 34. Maybe not the best car for the series but lots cheaper.

I already have accumulated enough for that car even making repairs and service throughout to the Silva to get that money. I have not spent that much time with the game either.

I can spend $1.99 for $50,000 and I might do it since I like the game so far. We will see but it would be nice being in on the ground floor with a game so to speak when it first becomes available so I probably will go for it to get further faster.

And I do want to try connecting to my HDTV to see how I feel about that. I do have the adapter for the Mini that I need.

Unfortunately I do not follow what you have recommended in your post. I am having fun plodding along with this game and I am afraid I will spend lots of time playing it more so than I should just like others do with some other games.

I loved Real Racing 2, but on my iPad 3 the frame rate in RR3 is a little bit too low.

Worse than that though, the game just seemed a bit boring compared to RR2 - maybe it was because I had to be much more careful not to damage my car.

+1 on the Panorama track! I like the addition of noticeable elevation change in several of the tracks compared to RR2.

You've probably figured out by now that you'll have to buy the Focus. I was avoiding it, and then got a good deal ;) on the Dodge that I couldn't pass up. I ended up having to buy the Focus, too. Now, it looks like I'll have to redo some races to earn enough $$ to get the Beemer (otherwise done with the first circuit).

You don't have to purchase anything. Just race your way through all the series and collect both money and gold.
All you need is patience - racing skills also help ;-)

What can I say? It's the only way to finish the first series...until I figured out I can start the second series without finishing the first! Just took delivery of my Skyline GTR! :cool: The Beemer will just have to wait.

And there are worse ways to earn money than turning silver into gold on previous races.

I am discovering that if you just play the game and participate in multiple racing series that you can earn enough money to buy any car in the game and beat other racers. The game initially feels like you need to spend money to win, but this is not true at all - looking forward to completing all of this game without spending a dime! - just to stick it to EA - EA could of had $10, but instead will get nothing for their hard work :)

It's a great little racer. You can make it perfect by following the advice from this site and loading up a 'tweaked' save which gives you a few billion credits. No more waiting, no IAP.

Because of the showcase races for each car in the first series, I guess you cannot get to 100% complete without buying each of those to compete. I am not doing that, spending the money when I have the Silva which lets me race in all the other ones.

And I bought the Skyline for the next series and it let's me race in that one without completing the first series totally so .....

Yeah, now that I figured that out it's, well...off to the races!

Something I made great use of in RR2 was somebody's compilation of car data, showing # of cylinders, "Power" rating (default and max), top speed, etc. Since some of these were criteria for entering a race, it helped to plan car purchases (minimize the # of car purchases necessary to complete your career). I wonder if a similar compilation is (will be) available to help maximize gameplay for a minimum of car purchases.

So, where's everybody at? I own:

Skyline GT-R (180 mph)
Ford Focus (168 mph)
Dodge Challenger R/T (180 mph)
Silvia S15 (164 mph)

Completion:
Pro/Am World Series
Pure Stock 88%
Street Spec 31%

I'm a Level 17 driver with $37k in the bank, and looking for my next car purchase soon. What should I buy?

I wish developers would optimize their apps more to take advantage of the graphics chip in the iPad 3/4. There's certainly not a lack of power.

I also love to play Racing Games and I use to play NFS and I had played all versions of NFS and still I am eager to play same. I don't know why I like to play NFS again and again? If new version is going to launch then I immediately play buying same otherwise in free time I use to play older versions repeatedly on my iPad2.

Excellent game, excellent graphics but you'll need a 4th gen device to get the best out of it.
I thought Contract Killer was cynical but this game is beyond cynical. Whilst servicing and repairs is a nice touch of realism they eat away at your funds, as does spending the premium currency on rushing through repairs or upgrades (some take over 6 hours!!). What's more, the opponents seem geared to do you damage and often pen you against walls.
You can't sell cars like you could in the last one which is really annoying. Each series of events only have 4 cars that can race. At the beginning they are evenly matched but, later you have a choice of spending 50k on a car that can do 155mph or 127k on a car that can do 190mph.
The one thing that's really bugged me is there's no qualification for cup races which means what? Most races are 3 laps and so you have 3 laps to get from last to first which often means you have to race VERY aggressively to get ahead meaning more damage, more cost and slower progress.
What saves this game is that it is very good. The graphics and controls are outstanding and so you don't mind playing it a lot. That being said, i've not had to save up for a 2 million quid super car yet so while you might get a lot of joy out of the game, you'll probably not complete it without IAP's before the next one comes out.

I'm playing on iPad 3; graphics is ok/great.
Meanwhile I have seven cars; not much virtual money. The waiting time is really disturbing; sometimes 30 or 40 min. But the good thing is: it actually force you to have a break while gaming and do other things. Read MR, prepare food, do the laundry etc. once those daily tasks are done the repair is done, too. From that point of view it's ok. Still hate to wait. ;)

Will I ever spend real money to buy points ? Nope. :D

If you do not want to wait, buy two cars for the same series so you can race the other one instead. Or just go to another series that allows you to race with what you bought so there is strategy needless to say to avoid waiting.

For free, this game is awesome and I still have not spent a dime OOP.

i haven't run into that problem. Repairs don't really take all that long at their normal speed. Certainly not so long that I feel the need to pay to speed things up. I just play another game until then

Good to hear it didn't take too much IAP - I don't foresee myself pulling out the wallet. But I keep thinking the door is going to close somehow on the free play, whether it's by EA tweaking the repair costs or times or something. I'm still having a good time with it now though.

I finally figured out how to do well on the "reach max speed in one lap" challenge, but it requires hitting the wall at max speed at the end of the longest straight run. :sad face:

NO, you're not really racing head to head with others -- not even close. RR3 assigns the total race time and avatar of someone to a "bot car". I think the race time is then fudged a little to account for the fact that you're always starting in last position.

Otherwise, that bot car races with the currently horrendous artificial intelligence that makes for a demolition derby of a race. So, don't be offended when a "friend" knocks you off the track, or constantly rams you from behind.

There are rumors that the developer is planning to make the AI a little more realistic (it is supposed to be Real Racing, after all, not Grand Theft Auto).

I'm actually liking RR2 over RR3. It seems less fremium based and fun to play. RR3 seems designed that you need to buy credits to keep upgrading and I've not really needed to worry about that for RR2.

I got a lot of fun out of RR2, first on my iPhone, and then again when I got my mini (much better experience). I'd almost forgotten that RR2 even had IAP....

I've put a fair number of hours into RR3, and have yet to pull out my wallet. Even so, the freemium nature permeates the game, and not in a good way.

I found that it isn't that big of an issue. Buy a couple of the cheap cars with your virtual cash and you can drive one while the other takes the slow (and free) route to repairs. Have been playing since it came out and haven't spent a real dime yet.

Just wish it would sync progress between devices. So I could play on iPhone when iPad not around.

You now can with the latest version.

Who else is playing it and on what? I currently have it on my mini and love it. I've always been a huge fan of racing games and this one is excellent so far. Performance is great and everything about this game brings me back to the ps2 days and gran Turismo 4. From the music to the way the tracks are, how upgrades are handled, menus. Everything. The graphics are also gran Turismo 4 like. They're great for am iPad. They don't even come close to ps3 but they've certainly caught up with what the best of last gen had to offer. Overall, solid game so far. Performs great on the A5.

Count me in. On the first day I played this game, I was really good. Later, a friend of mine started playing the game and is now a better racer than I am. My first car is the 2010 Ford Focus. A little tip: I don't use my brakes. I also take advantage of the fact that cars slow down at times, like at turns.

Yeah, I got over my initial reluctance pretty quick. I'm at 91% complete. Haven't spent a dime.

I wouldn't try that if you have brake assist off! :D

Hi all,

I'm wondering who's still playing this awesome game? I'm looking for a challenge regarding TSM times. Add me in GameCenter if you are interested: jadmorffier

I retired from playing RR3 because it is getting bored. :apple:

RR3 is pretty much the only game that I play. I'm a car guy so I really enjoy racing without spending a lot of $ to modify/blow up my own car :) It takes awhile to get to the big dollar cars though. And I've found that even if I do have the money to buy some of them, they are still locked. So something can be offered during one of their sales but I still can't buy it.

ZacNicholson: I've looked into being able to get all of the cars for free but don't trust the sites. Don't know how legit they are.

My goal is the Veyron 16.4. I think I'll have some fun with that one! At the rate I'm going, I'll have the money in 3 months but it will probably be locked :(

I'm a fan of this game and it's main reason I'm using my iPad 4 for. And I'm not updating its OS to 7.1.2 because of performance related considerings.

Does it have a performance decrease when updating to iOS 7 from iOS 6?

I've been playing RR3 for the past 8 months, on and off. I try to race at least once a day to get the max bonus and to build up the "bank balance".

I'm on the last series of the game. However, I have quite a few series that I'm unable to either enter or to complete because the game requires you to purchase the cars with "R Gold".

Now, I'm able to build up a modest gold balance by levelling up or to progress through series, but we're talking about small amounts of gold, usually 2 or 3 at a pop.

I sat down and worked out how much gold that I'd need to buy all the required cars to finish the game and for me to upgrade some already purchased cars which require gold for upgrades in order to meet min performance criteria or to simply get the car competitive (in my hands).

It came to around $700 (real dollars which purchase things like food, fuel, pay utilities, stuff like that) Now, the game is good, but it ain't THAT good. I don't know if any Xbox or Play Station car racing games require in-app purchases in order to progress through the game. I'd had to think that if they did there would be a revolt amongst the users.

I'd rather pay a reasonable price for the game up front, then to earn further game points which are attainable without having to make any additional purchases. As it is I've spent probably around $60 on gold and some extra "R Dollars". But that's it. If I can no longer progress then I'll simply delete it and move on. EA/Fire Monkeys have gotten some dough out of me.

In future, though, I won't be getting involved in any so called "freemium" games. They either come complete free, as is, or at whatever price they set on the game or application.
