This game deserves it. Taken straight from one of the reviews:

I should know by now to not trust any gameloft game to not be ridden with in app purchases and prompts to share with every social network on the planet so they get more free advertising. The graphics look nothing like the screen shots as usual, Even on my tegra powered xoom the flyover movies look horrible and full of graphical glitches. Every texture is horribly low rez so even the attempts to make buildings look more realistic with signage fails miserably. As with most games you unlock cars as you progress though the races but guess what?? Once you unlock a car you still have to buy it. "Unlocking" a new vehicle only unlocks the ability for you to buy it with in game money. Oh, you don't have enough in game money, we'll sell you some for REAL money!! Every time you complete a goal you are spammed for EVERY one of them to share it with everyone you know so gameloft gets more free advertising. On top of all of that the controls are very bad. Even with the sensitivity turned all the way up I have to rotate my tablet over an inch before the car even begins to respond to the turn. You spammed me for a market review so here it is....

Whenever I look at those smartphone games, It blew me away how powerful they are, I wonder if PS Vita will remain relevant in the coming years

This app (and several others by Gameloft) are "incompatible" with both my Evo 4G LTE and Transformer Pad 300. What devices do Gameloft games actually work on?
