Editors’ Notes

Of course Riff Racer has the best soundtrack ever—you choose it yourself! Even sweeter, though, is how courses shape themselves to the songs you pick (from your iTunes music library or Apple Music). As we strove to stay in sync with each tune, we burned through an exhilarating gauntlet of drifting, dodging, and stunts.

Music problem

Riff racer is a great game but when I thought that they would add Apple Music they would let me play the music that I own but I was wrong instead of that they give you a selection of genres but here’s the catch some work and others don’t and the only way to enjoy the game is to download mp3s but if you can get past that it’s a good game

Nice arcade-y game!

Not really a rhythm game since the tracks are made by algorithms, but an awesome arcade style game whose soundtrack is your own library! I hear Apple Music doesn't work well with this but Apple Music is kind of a rip off anyways, so I don't care. The touch controls are also a little weird but if you don't write it off immediately it takes only a few tracks to get the hang of it.
