    Asphalt 7: Heat is a terrific racing game. The game is well paced, has enough tracks and vehicles en offers a lot in terms of gameplay variation. On top of that the excellent graphics and good control scheme, make this a game you cannot miss.

    I suppose what I like most about Asphalt 7 is the fact that it doesn't go out of its way to grab your money beyond the 0.99 cent pricetag.

    While just as unrealistic as its predecessors, Asphalt 7 manages to turn up the notch on its presentation, game modes, AI and career progression, making it a hard to ignore example of fun Arcade Racing.

    You'll do yourself a disservice to avoid it, especially at $0.99.

    Asphalt 7 is probably the best in the Asphalt series. It offers exhilarating street racing with some exciting jumps in the course. It runs and looks well on all of my devices (from iPod 4g to iPad Air). My only concern is the in-app-purchases. Like any other recent Gameloft game, there are tons of opportunities to pay-to-win out of a tough race. The first half of the game is relatively easy, though the second half is punishingly hard without dropping loads of virtual cash. There is an imbalance between money earned from races versus money spent on required updates for more challenging races. There is also an extreme imbalance in multiplayer. Unfortunately, skill is mostly determined by the speed of your car more than anything. More strives should have been taken to balance the multiplayer. Still, there's no better racing game on the app store and the pay system is much tamer than games such as Real Racing 3 or Asphalt 8. I'd wait for a sale, but Asphalt 7 still is worth getting.

    Fun. For 10 minutes. Needless to say, it is starting to lose innovation and even falling behind in graphical elements compared to other high-quality racers on the App store. Poorly done. Full Review »
