  1. It's like "Need for Speed Underground" meets "Burnout," and it's portable on the Nintendo DS! We highly recommend it.
  2. The gameplay is fast and accessible, and there's enough variety in both the single- and multiplayer modes that you could spend a lot of time with the game.
  3. The gameplay is a bit primitive but still fun and challenging. My only regret is that the dual screen wasn’t used more prominently in the game. As it is, graphics not withstanding, this game could have been released for the GBA.
  4. Multiplayer is a great aspect of the game. The only great aspect of the game.

    For every few strides Asphalt: Urban GT takes, it seems to stumble once. In the end, it's serviceable, very good-looking, but by no means an outstanding portable racer.

    It simply seems rushed in certain areas and the whole game is a little on the short side.
  7. The AI of the opposing race cars is laughable (they often get flummoxed by simple things like passing other vehicles), as is the behaviour of the rest of traffic, with vehicles seemingly stranded in the middle of the road. [NGC Pocket]

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

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. Expand

    I played it through to the end and never picked it up again. The turbos just made the game too easy.
