    Asphalt 9: Legends is a great arcade racer for Nintendo Switch, with a huge single player career, awesome graphics and a local multiplayer mode via split-screen.

    In Asphalt 9: Legends splashy visuals come first, collecting unlockables comes second, and skill proves to be a distant third. Having said that, it's tons of fun, at least, if not in search of realism, and despite the lack of decent variety, not to mention the fact that it's an always-online product. Moreover, this can definitely be enjoyed in its original, free form, or by simply spending a bunch of pounds to purchase the Starter Pack if you need to save yourself from more than 10 to 20 hours worth of grinding, but beyond that, the game won't really force you to do anything more besides from playing it.

    The graphics, the driving mechanics, the tracks, the vehicles, and the play time in Asphalt 9: Legends are all very good. The game is fun to play and challenging enough to keep the player engaged. However, the micro-transactions and some frame-rate issues do interfere with the overall experience.

    "Freemium” games are a scourge of mobile gaming, and seeing it come to the Switch in such an aggressive way feels just as icky here as it does on your mobile device. There’s undeniably a lot to do here, but be ready to shell out some real money if you want to get the full Asphalt experience.

    Perfect to play on the go and available for everyone for free, Asphalt 9 Legends is a fast-paced and well-structured game, with only a few excesses related to microtransactions, and a bit of grinding too.

    A fun game at its core but can’t decide if it’s an arcade racer broken up with commercials, or a commercial broken up by an arcade racer.

    Nothing redeems Asphalt 9. It's shallow, inferior game that has been built with the exclusive purpose of getting suckers to throw more money at it. This stuff should be left on mobile platforms or, better yet, never made.

Very fun to unlock new cars and grow your garage. Some flags in career mode are nearly impossible to get even with the recommended rated/level car. The game becomes frustratingly difficult and that is why I'm giving it a 7 rating. It truly stops being fun as it becomes increasingly difficult. Expand

    Seriously, what is this?
    I have mario kart 8 deluxe but I still downloaded this free game, it sucks, I opened the game, it asked my age and my sex, and then I pressed ok, and it stopped working, I quit the game, but the nintendo home screen also froze, but then I had to wait 6 hours before the switch lost all of it's battery and I could charge the switch and then I could play mario kart instead for good, download it if you want to spend a wopping 12 hours waiting for the game to download and to freeze and to lose the switch's battery and wait for it to charge, you know, waiting is free
