    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.

    I am in my 30 and I liked the game. Critics here are kind of hard and I decided to create an account to write my opinion after 30% of the gameI am in my 30 and I liked the game. Critics here are kind of hard and I decided to create an account to write my opinion after 30% of the game done.

    Graphics are okay. I have a 2DS so I cannot talk about the 3D aspect, but the 2D is very nice. The load between race and menu is fast which is great. The control is great, I cannot play racing game on a phone but with the Nintendo2DS it was perfect.

    It is not a perfect game, for example, the number of different tracks is limited to about 10. Even if you have about 70 races in the competition mode, most of them are repeated. Also, I do not like the fact that we have random car in the track. They are also going on the other way of the road which I guess was added to add more difficulty to the game. The difficulty is not very high but still fun to play. I also have a hard time to see car coming in the other direction because of the angle of the camera. Even if you can change from 3 positions, none seems perfect to see clearly what obstacles are coming. This is also the case with powerup that are so big and opaque that it hides coming vehicle. Nevertheless, this game is playable, fun and enjoyable. You are getting experience and money that you can apply on a lot of items in the game like booster, car parts, etc. This make the game fun between races.

    So far, the game said that I have done 30% in about 4 hours. So, I guess I'll be done within 10-12 hours. The replayability is good since you can play in free-mode against your past performance. Drifting is great, I really like it and easy to do. However, it is not as great as Grid game from the PC one where I was so thrilled about. But, this is ain't a drifting game but available. The difference between car does not seem to be very remarkable which is sad since some car cost (fake money) a lot. A weird thing is that even with a very fast car, it is impossible to start a race without being last in the track -- your car just cannot accelerate as fast as others.

    To conclude, this game is fun. It is not a 10/10 but for sure not under a 4/10. I have paid that game 15$ which is the maximum you should pay. In fact, this is a 10$ game in my opinion. However, even if I have pay more, I still give that game a 6/10.

    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
