    Anyone know what happened to this title? I'm really looking forward to it but, looking around the web, people were saying it was pretty-much finished in June or July. Now it's September. Wah!

    Been watching there site for a couple of months now, but it looks like they've fallen asleep...

    I hope we'll hear something from them soon though!

    My guess, since EA is now involved in the project, is that this game will be released as an exclusive app for a yet-to-be-released Android device. Just like how Need For Speed: Shift is exclusive to the Droid X. Although I am looking forward to this game, I am not holding my breath for an Android release anytime soon.

    This game will probably go to iOS devices first, then to a specific Android device at a later date. This sucks, but my prediction doesn't seem too farfetched as EA just doesn't seem all that interested in exploiting the Android Market. Actually, I noticed that EA has pulled all of their games from the Android Market (at least on my EVO running stock 2.2) during the last week or so...

    EA is stupid. They claimed that their Android app weren't profitable, yet they don't put their apps in the market. You can't even find Android apps on their own website!

    Looks like this has made it to Palm OS now (which to the upset of iPhone users).

    Reckless Racing | PreCentral.net

    Although that's the only site that seems to mention it. At least that means it's not iOS only. Wonder when it'll reach Android?

    Just played it, first impressions show beautiful graphics with way to less content (one sitting on the toilet is enough to see everything) and faked online Multiplayer (You can win the race, but in the results you can be last, they just compare the whole racing time), but all in all, it is a great game.

    I've only played for a couple of minutes so far, but it is obvious that a whole lotta love and care was put into this game by polarbit. I am still getting used to the controls but, graphically, this is one of the best Android games I've played so far. Hopefully, this game will get the attention and sales it deserves...

    I'm extremely surprised at how the game runs on my Hero (oc'd to 768). It's only slightly jittery and the controls are very responsive. The graphics are great although it's obvious that they're optimized for the higher resolution phones as it's a bit grainy on my screen. Overall it runs better than any other game I've played with similar graphics, definitely a keeper.
