Apple Names Real Racing 2 HD The iPad Game Of The Year

The “App Store Rewind 2011” list hit this morning, and Real Racing 2 HD was named the iPad Game of the Year in Australia and New Zealand. It was a great holiday gift for EA Mobile, especially for our Firemint Studios who’ve upped the ante with some great game improvements.

The 3D racer has added more tracks, licensed cars, better graphics and a bigger online mode to captivate not only the Apple App Store folk, but us here at the EA Australia office as well. If you have not experienced this adrenaline charged racer yet, jump on it now.

Survival - horror favourite Dead Space HD came in as a close runner up. The IronMonkey team worked closely with Visceral Games to create a unique story and gameplay experience for iOS gamers. The game features a fully voice-acted stereo soundtrack, plus orchestrated score and sound effects, so you can hear every footstep in the dark empty passages (hint:  it isn’t Santa) and feel the tension build as you are pulled deeper into danger.

And as if it weren’t scary enough, we decided to update the game specifically for iPad 2 so that the graphics and special effects are that much more hair-raising. 

Throughout December, be sure to check the EA Daily Deals site each day for great deals to enjoy throughout the holidays.
