  • Summary: Asphalt: Urban GT 2 shifts into gear with six game modes, numerous tuning possibilities, 30 tracks and 36 licensed cars and motorcycles – taking handheld racing simulations to a new level. To keep the action hot, Asphalt: Urban GT 2 features music from Moby and music and appearances from the Pussycat Dolls. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. Asphalt: Urban GT 2 is a fun and visually impressive arcade-style racer, even if it is just an evolutionary upgrade of the original game.
  2. Though the game is gussied up with smooth visuals (and again, the Pussycat Dolls), the incredible ease of each and every event ultimately renders the game worthless for most seasoned gamers.

    Asphalt: Urban GT 2 is the second in series of games. Asphalt: Urban GT 2 is much fun than the original game and music is better and there more cars and tracks to chose from. The difficulty is adjustable so the game is also fun for casual gamers and the others who are not the best gamers. Expand

    I really think this game deserves somewhere between a 7.5 and 8.9. It's very fun, and they finally prove they get the DS. It has about PS-One or N64 level graphics (which is amazing in a hand held to ME still) and it has a very good control scheme. Although, after the backlash to the strapped on stylus controls in the first few rounds of racing games I wish someone would look at Starfox Command and do something similar, using buttons or dpad for gas, break, turbo, E-Break (for corner sliding) and stylus just for steering as an option. Not the ONLY way to play, but an option. Would be cool. Good sense of speed, KILLER sound (the main title track from Moby is stuck in my head constantly since I got it) All in all a solid racer, I just wish the bikes felt a little more different from the cars. Here's hoping the next generation of DS racer will get it even closer to right. Control schemes on this system should be all about choice! Expand

    Nice graphics, lots of options from racing to police chase. Lots of cars to choose from when you progress ... if you're into racing games like Need for Speed this NDS is a must. Expand

    I was hooked playing this for at least a few days. The music gets annoying after a while, but the game play is somewhat fast paced and intense with good incentives. Expand

    Asphalt: Urban GT 2, while fun, certainly isn't the best we have seen from a racing game. It had a wide variety of cars to customize, but the game is lazy in the fact that there is no story and it is merely a large selection of repetitive arcade levels. Progressing through was decent because of the cars you could get later.The graphics are great for a DS game and really stand out! The races can get really chaotic, which can be a blast, literally! Overall, pretty good game that is missing an impressive single-player mode due to its arcade style. Expand

    A solid improvement over the abysmal first Asphalt title. Cleverly, the developers have pinched some of the good features from the Burnout series and NFS:MW which makes for a fair amount of depth to this racer. The visuals too are a marked improvement over the messy first Asphalt - the graphics are clear and well defined, the sense of speed is quite convincing. Unfortunately, the driving model is far too simple to provide any fun in itself, especially in multi-player mode which is severely lacking. This sort of game on the DS lives or dies on its multi-player functionality, and sadly this is where Asphalt 2 really lets itself down. Certainly one of the better racers for the DS, but still not quite there yet! Expand

    This game is really easy. I had the first one on my samsung phone and the game play is not much different from that. There is a very good selection of cars (but no Porsche :-o) and lots of tracks. My 5 year old son clocked this game in about 3 days. He seemed to find more joy in pimping out the rides than racing. My partner liked this game a lot although I think that had something to do with the PCD's! The game doesn't utilize the touch screen much, which is basically the whole point of a ds. Expand
