    Raging Thunder 2 for Android is a fun, fast paced, exciting 3D racing game! It is great for long play periods or just one race; if thats all you have time for. Its the sequel to the first Raging Thunder on the Android Market Place. It was developed by polarbit and has two versions. One version is the Lite edition, which is a demo of the complete game and has some features locked. The other is the “Full” version which has all the features unlocked. The full version can be purchased for $4.99. I have bought the full version and will be breaking it down into sections during this review.

    Presentation

    The menus in the game are polished and very easy to navigate through. To move through the menus you swipe left or right to different blocks, once on the block you want you simply just tap it. Also the levels in the game are very detailed and full of life with eye-popping colors. There’s never a dull level in the game! Check out the eye-popping levels in the following pictures:

    Game Modes

    In Raging Thunder 2, there seven different game modes you can choose from. I was pleasantly surprised with so many options. Usually on mobile games there aren’t many options and are pretty straight forward. With all these choices, they are bound to keep you busy and having fun while playing. The seven different modes include:

    1. Time Attack: In Time Attack you race against the clock to finish the map.
    2. Survival: In Survival the goal is to be the last man standing. To get eliminated you have to be the last player to finish a lap.
    3. Career Mode: Complete in cups and championship races to earn money. With the money you can buy new cars or upgraded parts for your special car.
    4. Instant Race: Instant Race allows you to race in a randomly picked stage and car against the computer.
    5. Single Race: In Single Race you can pick your stage and car while racing against the computer.
    6. Arcade: In the Arcade mode you play through all the stages, while trying not to the timer reach zero.
    7. Internet: Internet lets you play multiplayer with friends anywhere in the world!

    Graphics/Performance

    If you like me then you’re hungry for some 3D graphic intensive game for Android. Well Raging Thunder 2 does not disappoint in this category. The game is in full 3D and has some pretty awesome animations. The cars are fairly detailed and the environments are spectacular! But don’t take my word for it, check out the video at the end of the review.


    Gameplay

    The Gameplay in Raging Thunder 2 is fairly easy to use. To control the car you tilt your device to the left or the right. If you tilt it left, the car goes left and vice versa. For me, it was really easy to use, but for someone who has never used tilt controls before might have a slight learning curve. But once they get the hang of it, it’s all smooth sailing from there. Check out the video for a better idea on how the controls work.


    Lasting Appeal

    Lasting appeal for this game is substantial. With the seven modes to pick from and the Internet Multiplayer it will definitely keep you busy for awhile. One small complaint I have is that they could have included a few more maps to race on. It can get tedious racing on the same maps all of the time. Other than that, it’s great.

    Conclusion

    After having spent some time playing this game and going to through everything the game has to offer, I can without a doubt say that Raging Thunder 2 is in my Top 5 games for Android. It’s perfect for long car rides or even for that moment when you only have time for one race. In any situation, I would not want to be caught without Ranging Thunder 2 on my Android phone!

    I especially liked the first Raging Thunder application. Well the one I have is just a free version and focuses mainly on the basics, but nevertheless it keeps me occupied during long travels. I might just download this one application given a reasonable price though! :)

    Nice review! :)

    The paid version (Raging Thunder 2) includes touch controls for steering which I personally prefer over tilt controls.
