    The game is fun, it looks great, and given the relatively sparse offerings for 3DS launch titles, this one is easy to recommend.
  2. A surprisingly good instalment. Well worth a look if you see it for 20 quid or so. [Apr 2011, p.90]

    Despite appropriating elements from the popular Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Burnout franchises, Asphalt 3D is an unexceptional arcade-racing title. [April 2011, p.86]

    It's almost a relief that the game struggling to break free from these severe technical shortcomings is mundane. [May 2011, p.104]

    Occasionally playable, but just mostly horrible. [Issue#108, p.116]

    Despite the many cups, cars, upgrades, skins, and everything else a cell phone game crams in to substitute for meaningful content, Asphalt 3D falls on its face straight out of the gate with a slipshod port of its mobile equivalent that at least demonstrates how busted most consolized phone games can get.

    Ok, get this straight: Asphalt 3D is just (kind of) a port of Asphalt 5 for iOS onto a 3DS. The gameplay is Ok, but it doesn't feel like youOk, get this straight: Asphalt 3D is just (kind of) a port of Asphalt 5 for iOS onto a 3DS. The gameplay is Ok, but it doesn't feel like you are actually playing an official Asphalt game. It has everything a normal Asphalt game would have, but it has more. This might not be a problem, but you have to do three laps for each race. It has plenty of glitches and as a plus, the are cops trying to take you down. Its not as epic as a normal Asphalt game would feel, and not as immersive either. The 3D effects are not so good. But sure, if you are a casual gamer who happens to have a 3DS and no iPhone or Android, get this game. If you have a mobile phone, get Asphalt 8.

    It's definitely not the best, but not the worst.

    This is one of the worst 3DS Games I have played. You are better off getting Asphalt on your Phone as its better graphics and the 3ds versionThis is one of the worst 3DS Games I have played. You are better off getting Asphalt on your Phone as its better graphics and the 3ds version is just a lower graphics and glitchier version of the Phone version. If your looking for a racing game on the Nintendo 3DS just get Mario Kart 7 as its a way better game. Expand

    There is no excuse for how pathetic this game is. I don't actually own it. I played it on a friend's 3ds and HAD to review it. I got betterThere is no excuse for how pathetic this game is. I don't actually own it. I played it on a friend's 3ds and HAD to review it. I got better value from the Iphone asphalt game. Asphalt 6 cost me 1 dollar in a special gameloft sale, and that game runs more smoothly, has better graphics...honestly....this is putrid. Expand
