CSR Racing was a game which almost cheated us into it with great screenshots and looks, but later broke into an unconventional racing game. But we do not have anything to complain, as the gameplay turned out to be addictive in itself and became hugely popular. With even Fast and Furious 6 copying their game, NaturalMotion has decide to roll out their first ever sequel, CSR Classics.

The gameplay is a carbon copy of the original and revolves around drag racing and drag racing only. Your ride moves in a straight road and you change gears with perfect timing to win races. As you proceed, the opponents increase in difficulty and better timing & upgraded cars are needed for the same – the typical recipe for a freemium model game.

What CSR Classics brings new to the table, is the ability to restore old iconic cars. Many classic and heart-throb rides like Gran Torino, Mercedez 300SL, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang and Skyline GTR find their way into the garage. You can either buy an expensive refurbished model or get a cheap metal junk and revive it. Vehicle enthusiasts will have their blood boiling with the step-by-step mods for rides. Win virtual money, collect coins and also throw in some real bucks to paint, repair, mod and upgrade them and bring your ultimate racing champion back to life.

The graphics are spectacular but with a side-scrolling camera view. The sound effects are great too while controls are simple with just some timely taps. The gameplay however retains the crazily repetitive races which though fun at first, gets really boring with time.

So this is the take away. The failure to add new contents and modes of gameplay is a major drawback as far as the game is concerned. The only highlight or wannabe is the ability to own, revive and collect classic cars and that too, appeals only for the hardcore four-wheel enthusiasts. So, CSR Classics is a green light for all car fanatics but anyone else can just walk past it.
