Review: Asphalt 4

Asphalt 4: Elite Racing from Gameloft is currently the latest and maybe greatest addition to the batch of racing titles available on the App Store. You can purchase it for the fair price of $9.99.

Presentation

The first thing you see when you enter the game is a really slick intro video that gets you excited to start playing. Once it’s finished, you get to the menus that are clean and easy to navigate.

Score: 9.5

Graphics

The app’s graphics are extremely nice and detailed, making Asphalt 4 eye candy when it comes to mobile video games. You can even notice details like building windows and sidewalks. They really are great!

Score: 9.5

Sound

It’s the same as it is with most other titles – you’re going to almost always want to be listening to your own music, not the theme songs that are built in to the game. Still though, I should be giving the music a good critique, and I’m going to have to say that he music is very nice to listen to.

Score: 9

Gameplay

Incredible! Asphalt 4 takes advantage of the iPhone’s features with three different ways to control your car: Accelerometer, virtual wheel or tapping either side of the screen. Tilt control works great as you would expect, as does the virtual wheel which is a new type of control. Another new type of method of control introduced in this game is a second touch screen scheme. You tap the left side of the scren to turn left and likewise for right. Al l three control options are very fun and easy to use!

Score: 9.5

Value

$9.99 seems like a pretty fair deal, considering that all of the racing titles started at the same price. I don’t expect any price drops any time soon so I suggest you just go and try it out.

Score: 8

Lasting Appeal

Like most racing games, Asphalt 4 is a great time passer. One of the things that really extends your interest is that the game has a great new feature that allows you to play two player over a Wi-Fi connection. It really is one of those games that keeps you entertained for a while.

Score: 8

Overall

Overall….this is the best racing title et on the App Store. Once Need for Speed is released, that opinion might change…. but this game really is one of the better apps available. If you want a solid iPhone title – this is what you’re looking for.

Presentation: 9.5

Overall: 9.2

What To Do (Buy Or Not): A Must!

Look out for plenty of more reviews in the next few days!!!
