Real Racing 2 HD hits the App Store just in time for iPad 2

Firemint has announced Real Racing 2 HD for the iPad and iPad 2. This iPad-only version takes full advantage of the new A5 chip and faster graphics found in the iPad 2 and it looks fantastic.

Real Racing 2 has been limited to the iPhone and iPod touch since its debut last year, and I for one have always wanted to bring the experience over to my iPad. The idea of using the iPad as a steering wheel for a game like this has always been appealing. The only downside is that you'll need to purchase Real Racing 2 HD separately from the App Store, even if you've already purchased Real Racing 2 for your iPhone. The upside is that you'll be able to play it on both the original iPad and the new iPad 2 because of how the game adjusts graphics output between the two devices.
