Incredible graphics and thrilling gameplay (reminds me of the Wipeout series) Eventually you end up spending a lot of time in boost mode, so I found it was clearer to turn off 'boost blur' in the advanced graphics options. I also stopped looking at the scenery quite as much, to concentrate on the track ahead, as such turning down the detail on scenery, and increasing shader complexity, improved things even further. (On a 1st gen Moto G)
Great Game ! I got this game on my xbox 1 also and I like it a lot more on my phone. I use the accelerometer for the controls on the highest sensitivity and that works for me. Tons of choices with high powered jet skis, a ton of upgrades, color picker etc. I highly recommend this game ! Rip on !
Great game, but, gamepad support needs work. (Update) I love all of Vector Unit's games, and bought them all. Support for either my Logitech F310 Gamepad or keyboard is usually very good, but Riptide GP2 is the exception. For the most part it works, but for some reason, it detects the layout of the controller incorrectly, even with X-Box Input enabled. This could easily be corrected by allowing custom button mapping in the game. If the developers add custom key/button mapping I would happily give this game 5 stars. UPDATE: It seems the Logitech F310's gamepad layout isn't 100% Android compatible, so bumping up to 4 stars. I have since bought a Speedlink Gamepad which works great with this game. Keyboard support would still be a great addition though.
I had played Riptide 1 on my Transformer Prime with a PS3 controller and hooked it to a projector. It was great! Riptide GP 2 is even better! Buuuuuuut, the speed at which you unlock new bikes is slow, and there are in-app purchases. So be warned. Otherwise it is a very good racer and you will have to learn your racing lines.
Utterly brilliant! I love the graphics, the thrill and the shear excitement of this game, but I have some ideas for a new update. Bring back the old jets from Riptide 1 (Tigershark and Cuda) as well as some old tracks. Some new jets would also be cool. Some new event ideas (like from Hydro Thunder Hurricane) such as ring master and gauntlet could work. I would also like too see a free play mode where you can chose the track, event and difficulty of the opponents and not get money or experience. It can be the "Testing Zone." I would like too see some of these ideas in a new update.
Good fun It is great to play. Does not have as good a feel as the first. Not as fun. Too much boring upgrading and customisation. It was the racing which made the first game enjoyable - just pick a track and play. This is too convoluted - you can't win until you upgrade and you can only upgrade if you finish 2nd in a couple races to go back and get 3 stars. Gets old quick.
