…if you live in New Zealand! As reported on Monday, the game was originally rumored to be released on the 28th. To the surprise of many, the game is now available. Or, at least it will be soon. As per usual iTunes App Store app releases, they tend to start at midnight in New Zealand, slowly rolling out throughout other parts of the world each hour. If you’re too anxious to try it, you can go ahead and make a New Zealand iTunes account to get the free game now. You’ll find the official screenshots and other information down below. Early reviews of the game are primarily positive, with many people criticizing the “pay all” and long wait times to progress within the game itself, let alone to race again, with some having to wait several hours before continuing to a new race. Are these “freemium” games the way to go? I’d rather just pay a set price to get everything at once, but these types of titles typically bring in more dough, which is all the big developers care about anyway.
