    I wish they had a horizontal remote option like asphalt does. I tire quickly trying to hold one hand upside and steer.

    Not sure if you saw it but you can turn off the driving aids in the settings, if nothing else it makes it a lot harder.

    Game is sleek and full of details. It can be seen that a major lot of work was put into it. Tracks are a bit short (I've just started) but are wonderfully detailed. It remainded me somewhat of NFS5

    I do not play a lot of games but just testing for my Grandkids when they come over. But, I really don't like all of the IN APP Purchases. I have my ATV Set to Block but it just seems hard to figure out what you can do without buying anything. I think I had to buy a Car to do anything but I don't think it cost any "real" money since I have it block. I think I would rather just pay for the game and have little or no IN APP purchases. Maybe has to do with a free trial.

    Am I missing something? Would be nice if you could simply turn off IN APP Purchase within the App so you can not see a bunch of the buy this buy messages.

    I love the graphics too, but I gotta say this game is BORING. I played a few levels and deleted it. Going back to Asphalt 8.

    I am really impressed with the ambitious nature of the game. There's no denying that the graphics are wonderful. The control with the Steel Series Nimbus controller is a little stiff compared to something like Asphalt, But most definitely playable. I like the "sim" aspect to it as far as building a garage and team. The car damage is a bit strange for such short races. Though I know this is all implemented as part of the system. It just seems like I spend a lot more time in the garage than on the track. Wait.... I guess that is just like real life! :D I don't mind spending "real" money on the game as long as I don't feel like I'm getting robbed and so far I don't feel that way, so that is a plus.

    This game is definitely a step in the right direction. As the kinks are worked out I think this could be a good series for the system if they keep going with it. My fear is that the AppleTV version will not make much revenue for them and it gets pushed under the rug.

    But again, I really enjoy the "quirkiness" of the game and I mean that in a good way. A lot of extra behind-the-scenes stuff to do and it adds to the "sim" nature of the game. Maybe just some longer races thrown in there. ;)
