If you were lucky to attend last year’s WWDC, you would be impressed by a game called “CSR Racing” shown on stage to best showcase Apple’s new iOS 6. Its graphics were pretty stunning and it worked perfectly well on iOS 6.
When CSR Racing was finally released on June 28, 2012, a week after the display, It quickly became one of the most popular iOS games and ranked among the top 10 of the top iPhone grossing chart with over $10 million revenues in its first one month after launch.
A year later, developer NaturalMotion Games brought a new follow-up “CSR Classics” to its flagship title CSR Racing, once again showcasing its amazing graphics powered by an all-new graphics engine. Just as the folks behind NaturalMotion said: “CSR Classics features cutting-edge particle effects, real-time reflections, volumetric lighting, and uncompromising attention to detail.”
Not only do the graphics of CSR Classics look outstanding, but the game added some classic brand cars from Audi, BMW, Shelby, Mercedes, etc., allowing you to customize your cars with a great selection of new upgrades like engine, tiers, rims, gear box, and nitrous. It also features a new Restore mode that let you restore your cars from “Unloved” shells into the “Loved”, maximizing car’s attributes and decreasing its weight.
CSR Classics plays exactly the same as the original CSR Racing. But from a newbie’s point of view, the game is implemented with thoughtful details. Even you missed a few steps to lose, or misunderstand the rules of the game, you could still get prompted after some failure attempts.
CSR Classics currently soft-launches on the New Zealand and Emirati App Store, and the new follow-up is astonishingly detailed, visually state-of-the-art. If you love the original, you will love CSR Classics as it feels like a souped-up version of CSR Racing.
