Its been a long wait for whatever reason but from today, Real Racing 3 has finally shown up in the US App Store. Real Racing 3 was released to other countries over a week ago but for for some strange reason it never showed up in the US App Store. That has now changed and you can now get your hands on this amazing looking driving game.

Hyper-realistic. Pure fun. And FREE. Real Racing 3 sets a new standard for mobile racing games – it really must be experienced to be believed. Trailblazing new features include officially licensed tracks, an expanded 22-car grid, and over 45 meticulously detailed cars from makers like Porsche, Lamborghini, Dodge, Bugatti, and Audi. Plus, racing with friends gets kicked into another dimension with the reality-bending Time Shifted Multiplayer (TSM) technology.

The game is free to download and play but has received a lot of criticsm for its fremium model. Once you have the game you are then faced with a plethora of in-app purchase options which if you are not careful can soon mount up and make Real Racing 3 a really expensive experience. Of course you don’t need to buy any in-app purchases but its hard to resist getting your car a spec bump to help you win more races.

Real Racing 3 is currently compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 4th and 5th gen, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad mini; you must be running at least iOS 4.3. The game has also been optimized for the iPhone 5’s larger screen as well as being a universal binary for iPhone and iPad full screen gaming.

It looks like an awesome racing game and the graphics really are outstanding. If you grab this one, make sure to let us know how you enjoy playing it! Also let us know what you think of the in-app purchases.
