But the problem was that it was easy to get through, in a few days i had completed all the races, and all though there is a fairly decent amount of cars to buy, there's not really much of a reason to buy them. Thats why i've marked it down. It's good, but lacking in some places. Full Review »

    I truly liked this game because it's just fun. Most racing games have just crazy good handling like you have a super car. This gameI truly liked this game because it's just fun. Most racing games have just crazy good handling like you have a super car. This game isn't like that. It's more realistic. But sometimes the handling can be pretty bad and make the car hard to drive. Some cars handle nice while others are a nightmare. Mostly the cars that are farther in the drift side of the meter. I like my cars to not slide like it's on ice. Other than that there is not that much to complain about. I personally would recommend picking it up if yuo just like to drive really sweet cars because the AI doesn't ever even challenge you pretty much what. Full Review »

    Rather bizarrely, Gameloft made a complete mess of the sequel, making this version STILL the best racer on the DS, it's got a higher Rather bizarrely, Gameloft made a complete mess of the sequel, making this version STILL the best racer on the DS, it's got a higher framerate, has decent and inoffensive music, and actually has a proper drift mechanic. The sequel - Oh dear. Asphalt 2 was clearly created with an EA games mentality, ridiculous handling, jerky framerate, utterly AWFUL music, and embarrassing sponsorship of the Pussycat Dolls (presumably for teenage virgins to exited about). The game mechanic has been completely wrecked, and the physics are like the Java phone games (crud). If you like driving games, you could do worse, just remember that this does not apply to the massively inferior Asphalt 2. Full Review »
