CSR Racing 2 is a racing game – the name makes it rather obvious. To differentiate itself from other racing games, CSR Racing 2 focuses exclusively on drag racing. It was developed by Zynga for smartphone devices. With great graphics, both a singleplayer and a multiplayer mode, and many customization options, it is a very appealing game – indeed, it currently ranks #3 in Sport on Apple App Store.
The singleplayer mode, named Crew Battles, is a fairly straightforward affair. Challenging and winning against racing crews allows you to challenge better, more elite crews – thus letting the player climb the competitive ladder all the way to the top. To add variety, the game features in-game events that you can complete to receive extra money and rare car parts. Multiplayer is similar, except that the competitive ladder is seasonal – it’d be no fun to let one player stay on top for too long. It is also possible to play against your friends, of course.
While this game does not offer many different game modes, the gameplay variety is still achieved – by other means. CSR Racing 2 features more than 200 different vehicles, including famous ones like McLaren F1, Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, and Aston Martin DB5. The vehicles can then be upgraded and customized – specifically, the player can customize paint, rims, brake calipers and interior trims of a vehicle.
As we already mentioned, CSR Racing 2 is a smartphone game, available only on iOS and Android. But with the help of this guide, you will be able to play CSR Racing 2 on PC as well (you can also use it to play CSR Racing 2 on Mac, if you’d like).
Play CSR Racing 2 on PC or Mac using Bluestacks
Note: Playing CSR Racing 2 on PC or Mac via Bluestacks will allow you to use a keyboard and mouse, however, according to the latest updates, this won’t give you an advantage, as the game uses special separate servers for gamers playing with emulators.
Among the variety of Android emulators, Bluestacks is the most advanced one. Firstly, it is available for both Windows and Mac with full functionality. Secondly, it allows effortless, automatic transition to PC game controls and convenient hot-keys that you are used to from any regular PC game. It provides high performance and graphics in any mobile game even on a relatively weak PC or Mac, as computer processors are usually more powerful than smartphone ones. To run CSR Racing 2 on PC or Mac you need to perform these easy steps:
- Download the latest version of Bluestacks for Windows or MacOS.
- Open Play Store and sign-in with your Google account.
- Download CSR Racing 2 from the catalog and run it.
- Bluestacks may offer you to run better engine for this game.
- Install the game and start playing!
Play CSR Racing 2 on PC or Mac using iMyFone MirrorTo
iMyFone MirrorTo is an application that allows you to control your smartphone from a PC or Mac. You will see your phone’s screen on the computer, and will be able to issue commands with keyboard and mouse. With advanced keyboard mapping abilities, similar to what is offered by Android emulators, you will be able to play CSR Racing 2 on PC easily, all while enjoying the precision of PC controls.
This method has an obvious disadvantage – it requires you to have a phone capable of running CSR Racing 2. However, there are several advantages as well. Because the game doesn’t actually run on your computer, the specifications of your PC don’t matter. What’s more, it is unlikely that you will be banned in any game for using this tool – something that might happen while using emulators.
MirrorTo can be used to control both iOS and Android devices, so unless you have a weak smartphone, this app will be useful to you.
- Download and install iMyFone MirrorTo on your PC or Mac computer.
- Launch it and pair your smartphone with your computer by following the program’s instructions.
- Install CSR Racing 2 and start playing!
Play CSR Racing 2 on M1 Mac
Note: According to our research, playing CSR Racing 2 on an M1 Mac may cause a temporary or permanent account ban in the game, that is why it is recommended to play with the secondary account or as a guest.
As you may already know, M1 Macs (latest Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, Mac Mini, iMac) are able to run many iOS apps and games on MacOS. If for apps it can be useful because many iPad and iPhone apps are very advanced and suitable for desktop usage, in gaming this is just magic. M1 chips (especially M1 Pro and M1 Max) are much more powerful than iPhone and iPad chips, in many types of games (shooters, racing) keyboard and mouse (trackpad) controls are much more useful than touch.
To download and play CSR Racing 2 on M1 Mac do the following:
- On your Mac go to Mac App Store and click on your profile in the bottom left corner.
- Under account click iPhone & iPad Apps.
- Download CSR Racing 2 on your Mac device and start playing!
Note: not all iOS games and programs support this feature. If you can’t find the game in Mac App Store, it is likely that the game’s developers have decided not to support it.
