Fast Five the Movie: Official Game is an explosive racing game based around the latest in the Fast & Furious series of movies.
The game lets you take the wheel of some of the hottest cars from the Fast Five movie. The Career mode sees you take on a series of challenges on the streets of Rio, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong and more. In order to complete each chapter you'll need to take part in elimination contests, drift challenges, time attacks and drag events. With 10 different chapters to unlock, you'll be playing Fast Five the Movie: Official Game for some time.
Controlling the game is very simple, and it works in much the same way as the previous F&F iOS tie-in, Fast & Furious The Game Test Drive. The car auto-accelerates and you steer it by tilting your iPhone left and right. Tap the brake button and you'll slow down.
These controls are simple enough to master, accept the brake button is inconveniently placed if you're wearing headphones, as they may impede your thumb. It would've been better if you could touch any part of the screen to slow down, like you can with the first Fast & Furious iPhone game. Perhaps even the Fast Five the Movie: Official Game should have another control system to choose from.
Graphically, Fast Five the Movie: Official Game is very impressive. The impression of speed you get is awesome and streets are beautifully rendered. The explosive special effects that accompany each level really give you an adrenaline buzz.
Gameplay is more dynamic in Fast Five for iOS than it is in a standard racing game. Events happen during the race that are beyond your control (trucks falling from overhead carriageways, buildings falling apart on top of you, etc.) and you need to be prepared for this. A Rewind Time feature allows you to go back a few seconds during gameplay so you can correct any mishaps you make.
Other elements of Fast Five the Movie: Official Game that help keep you immersed in it, include the vehicle tuning section, and a multiplayer mode that lets you play online against up to nine other players. Alternatively, you can play against a friend over Bluetooth or WiFi.
Fast Five the Movie: Official Game is one of the most diverse and enjoyable iOS racing game to date.
