Firemint Real Racing

I'm gearing up, pun intended, for a full review of this awesome-looking racer from Firemint (once I finish my review of Astraware's Phaze), but wanted to get the word out on the street (last pun, I promise), even though it's been around awhile. In fact, I've been doing so much iPod racing lately, I might feature a round-up when I get some time. This one looks (from the video), like a pretty intense ride! Read on for more details...
