Does the TrialsHD.net review not count for some reason?

Touch Arcade review is up, this is an important one, very influential iPhone site! Means better competition for us all the more the news about this game goes out, so get the word out! http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

From the review: "Like its predecessor, DrawRace 2 is all about momentum, but just like the first game, and even RedLynx's Trials HD, this is more of a puzzle game than a racing one. You draw your lines not for efficiency in distance, but in response to the physics of driving a car"
