Real Racing 3 is the realistic free-to-play racing sim from EA and Firemonkeys. It just hit iOS today, however, the constant micro-payment harassment has left some reviewers cold. Others don’t seem to mind at all. You be the judge below.

The game’s micro-payment model got many critics and gamers understandably upset, as previous games in the series haven’t gone heavy-handed in the cost department.

That has all changed with Real Racing 3, thanks to the game’s micro-payment backbone. Many reviewers have overlooked the issue, suggesting that it’s not as bad as people first thought.

You decide:

CVG – 7/10
Eurogamer – 3/10
IGN – 9.1/10
Touch Arcade – 4/5
Pocket Gamer – 9/10
CNET – 4/5
