Up until today, you could have played Reckless Racing Ultimate in Windows 8 only in trial mode or by paying five dollars to buy the app, but now a Lite version has been made available
I used to play the Reckless Racing Ultimate on my Windows 8 tablet and have lots of fun. It’s one of the best Windows 8 racing games around, there’s no doubt about it. But it isn’t affordable for everybody as you’ll have to get five dollars out of your pocket to buy it.
That’s why I was gladly surprised to discover that a free version, not the trial version, has been released by Microsoft, it is called Reckless Racing Ultimate LITE. Of course, as you’d expect, it comes with some limited functions, such as not being able to participate in as many tournaments as in the paid version. Nonetheless, it’s a worthy addition to your list.
Update: It seems that Microsoft has pulled the game down from the Windows Store, as it’s no longer available in the Windows Store. Probably Redmond has decided to keep it only for U.S. and Canadian customers.
Reckless Racing Ultimate alternatives
IN case you are searching for other interesting racing games, you can always choose to get a copy of Need for Speed, but it has lots of problems with Windows 8.1 and 10, so here are some great alternatives for you:
- GT Racing 2 – a great ‘grand-touring’ racing game that will keep you entertained for hours and works perfectly with Windows 10
- Asphalt 8: Airborne – one of the biggest racing releases of this year, available for free in Windows Store
