There are a variety of different tasks that can be performed on the iPhone 4S. Many users love to browse the web on the handset while other find it a valuable social networking tool. One area where this device really excels is for mobile gaming so we look at one of the most impressive and addictive games currently available for this model.

Boost 2 is a new racing game for the iPhone 4S and not only is it one of the best games of its kind it is also one of the best games available from any genre. The action and graphics are very simple on this title and this is what makes the game so appealing. PlayStation fans will notice that the game strikes more than a passing resemblance to the popular Wipeout series of games that were released for this platform. The aim of the game is to complete a series of challenging courses in the fastest possible time. The course are made from a series of twisting three dimensional tubes featuring brightly coloured tiles. This tubular effect lets users approach corners at extreme angles or those wanting the safer option can stick to a more conservative central line. The action is viewed from a first person perspective which means that there is no vehicle visible on screen. This is great as it leaves the relatively small display to just deal for presenting the track to the player without any unnecessary clutter.

Boost 2 offer two games modes to the player that are both great fun and extremely addictive. The multi player mode select random opponent and lets you compete against them in a head to head time challenge. The action is very fast and you do not have to worry about the game eating into hours of your day. If you prefer single player action you can attempt to beat your own best times on the courses. There is no question that the multi player mode is the most fun and opponents are selected via the Games Centre which is pre installed on the device. This service is used by a variety of games and is an easy of way of not only linking with other player but also storing leader boards. Twisting and turning your way around the courses is done by holding your iPhone like a steering wheel and simply tilting the handset when necessary. This method really adds to the realism of the game and proves more effective than on screen joypads.

Boost 2 for the iPhone 4S is a great example of an excellent racing game. A large variety of courses are available and the control mechanism is both simple and realistic. The game looks stunning on the eye and delivers an addictive and fun experience.
