Two wheels are most definitely good in this sequel to the world’s most popular mobile racing game. Saddle up, throttle back and get practicing those gear shifts, Drag Racing goes bike bonkers…
There’s a good reason why the original Drag Racing was so popular – it was just effortlessly cool. So it stands to reason that this long-awaited Bike Edition was going to impress too and – by Jorge Lorenzo’s oil! – it really doesn’t disappoint.
Hugging the laws of motorcycle physics tighter than grizzly bear leathers to make the experience as realistic as can possibly be achieved on an app, you can choose from 17 sports bikes, then indulge in a frenzy of upgrades and retunes as you progress, until you develop the ultimate machine with which to force the competition to gorge themselves on your dust.
Race offline or, if you’re feeling cocky, on against a bevy of bike-wielding bringers, hoon your way up the leaderboard and share your epic victories on Facebook and Twitter.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Fast, furious, occasionally infuriating, complete full-throttle fun, Drag Racing: Bike Edition might be little more than just Drag Racing swapping cars for bikes, but that’s all it needed to be. Like its predecessor it’s just effortlessly cool and, because of that, you can expect to see it ragging its way up the app charts soon.
