  • The game not worth on Xbox One. it sucks.
  • I agree, didn't sick to it for long
  • Love this game on window phone...
    never own an Xbox console, is it that bad on xbox?
  • Why does it suck? I have it on my phone and its actually rather good. The controls can be a little hit/miss at times but the overall package is pretty great.
  • Not quite Mario Kart but fun it is tough on later levels you need to put some time in. Much better in that there are no ads and no freemium to deal with.
  • Please elaborate.
  • Universal apps everywhere
  • My little girl saw this and started dancing last night when I showed it to her in the store. She loves this game.
  • Cute.
  • It's happening ...
  • Beautiful :D
  • The beginning of the end
  • the end of?
  • The end of what?
  • The end of consoles. They shouldn't allow mobile games to be ported to Xbox, keep it for "real" games
  • Calm down, your stupid COD will still work on it tomorrow..
  • why? - games like this are great for little kids - which, there are not many games for kids on XB1.  This is a game my 5 year old son could actually play on XB........i dont really let him play that many games, but as a reward for good behavior, i sometimes let him play a game or 2 on my cell phone, his favorites are Subway Surfers, and Sonic Dash.........I bet he would love this.  Im all for mobile games coming to XB1 - but if its free on mobile, it should be free on XB as well.  And if i pay 8$ or whatever it is for the game, it better damn well sync with the same game im playing on my phone - isnt that the point of XBOX games on Windows Phones.  At a minimum, if your porting to Console, you should at least render at a higher resolution, and have better graphics - this looks like a Nintendo 64 game.
  • Looks like n64? Its running at 1080 60 fps. Graphics were wonderful on tablet and should be better on console.
  • more from a polygonal perspective, not resolution........ok, maybe more like PS2
  • Yes
  • This universal app love is going to see indie love everywhere :) and some nice exclusives on windows mobile devices :)
  • next gen =P
  • This site is 'Windows Central' then why are they showing a news of Microsoft's Xbox One
    Site should be renamed to 'Microsoft Central'
  • Now i know how dumb you are. XBOX uses windows as its operating system. If you didnt know that before, then know it now
  • No I am not
    Xbox runs two operating system one for the apps and one for the games
    Apps runs on a stripped version of windows but not the games
    Games runs on a completely different architecture.
    I don't know if this changes with windows 10
  • The Xbox One currently runs a version of the Windows 8 kernal
  • That doesn't sound right. So you mean any time you snap(with snap assist) an app beside a game on Xboxone, you are running two operating systems.
  • I dont know how exactly it works but it does so :) you can check Wikipedia too...
  • actually, it's 3 OSs.  But the OSs are more like virtual machines.  One OS is for the WinRT apps.  One OS is for the Xbox One games.  And the third OS is like a manager to keep the 2 OSs from colliding.  But it's all Windows underlying it.
  • Asphalt 8 is the best racing game :) but this one is cool like ctr.
  • If this had account syncing, I would buy it. I bought Riptide GP2 for the Xbox one and PC and it doesn't sync with Riptide GP2 for Windows Phone. I am sooooooooo far along in the career mode in RGP2 and Beach Buggy Racing on WP that it doesn't make sense at all to start over on the Xbox one. That fact alone is what is keeping me from purchasing their Xbox One games after RGP2. I hope an update enables account syncing and then I will be all in.
  • Now that you mention PC you can play this on your PC using a USB cable, all you need is to install the Project my screen app on your PC and use your WIndows Phone 8.1 feature called Project my Screen, this is great if you want to play games available for Windows Phone that are not available for PC yet.
  • Make this GWG GOTM in July MS. Thank you.
