There's nothing like sliding in behind the wheel of a finely tuned automobile for a little drag race. Odds are you have neither the inclination nor the resources to do that in real life, so why not enjoy the experience in a video game? CSR Racing has been released globally on Android, and it's got more officially licensed cars than than you'll be able to properly drool over.

CSR Racing is still a racing game, but it doesn't have the same level of interaction as something like Real Racing 3. All the races in this title are of the "drag" variety. So there's no steering, negotiating obstacles, or battling for position. Timing and smart upgrades will get you to the finish line first, but it might not be as deep as other racing games.

You are welcome to download CSR Racing for free, but there are in-app purchases included to sell you upgrades. That shouldn't come as a surprise, but I was happy to see that the developer specifically warns of the presence of IAPs in the description. At first glance, it looks like a very attractive game. It's probably worth a look for the car buffs out there.

    Is it just me that this game looks awfully ugly on Exynos 4412 (I'm using Note 10.1)? It takes a lot of time to load too. Compared to NFS Most Wanted or Real Racing 3, I know this game should look a lot better on my device. Especially it has no mechanism to compute in corners, car's damage, other 10+ opponent's cars on the track, and etc. I'm very disappointing as my dad also plays this on his iPad, I know how it's supposed to be.

      i think note 10 would run this game with no delay and it is but just drag mode is not enough

    Arg the music on that trailer. Looks wee bit like modern take of Street Rod.

    CSR Racing is neither new nor a racing game. You can't turn, drift, brake, smash, reverse, or decelerate. It is nothing but a "tap the screen at the exact moment the tachometer (rpm) hits the red zone" game. You can't enjoy the graphics because your eyes are fixed on that tachometer. It's also been around since 2011 on the iPhone.

    I think this game is good. They did an extremely took time and pride of this game. Got a 1080i like Need For Speed Most Wanted (2012) but extremely good. Got some cars like in Most Wanted but you have to buy for those cars.
