Asphalt 4 Elite Racing

Author: iPhone Reviews // Category:

Hello all, this is the first review of a game I already have. Starting in a couple days I will start the reviews for the loyal developers.

Asphalt 4: Elite Racing is a racing game by Gameloft. $5.99

Asphalt 4 is one of the first true racing games on the App Store. Before its releases the racing games were scattered with small cartoon versions and we called for a full racing game, Asphalt answered. With 28 different cars able to purchase, 5 different race modes across 9 cities, Asphalt brought a complete feeling to it.

The graphics in this game are amazing. The smooth feel as you are hurtling down the detailed streets running into cars were superior to all others at the time of its release. The cars look awesome, but they have worked into getting everything else up to scratch which really gets people interested in this game. Different camera angles in the game are an added bonus and contribute to the replay factor of the game.

The music in-game is good in places, and not so good in others. The good part is that new music is used in each country, which stops it being repetitive after hours playing the game. The disappointing music is noises the cars make, from the breaking to the sirens on the Cop Chase. But overall it is pretty good.

Ok to the menu. You can choose your car for each race, and buy new ones when money becomes available and your level is high enough. As well as just buying the cars you can customize them by upgrading everything from the engine to the tyres as well as changing the color of the car. The second option is to choose your location, game mode for that location and to race your car. The game modes for the game are
Race- 3 laps of the course to come in the top 3
Beat 'Em All- 3 laps of crash and bash. You have to get 6 takedowns to win
Cash Attack- 3 laps to get as much cash as possible from money icons, takedowns, using nitro and jumps. Get the most money to win
Cop Chase- Be the cop and catch the leader of the chasing cars and take him down to win
Duel- Make a bet of $5000, $10000 or $15000 and race 1 on 1 for two laps
The next option is where you get to choose from which one of your fangirls you will use for that race. Each one gives you special bonuses in the race. There are setting for the game such as gameplay, sound and languages. Lastly there is the option to play multiplayer against other people in the same room, which is quite fun.

To the gameplay, when you first play the instructions of how to play come up and the driving option comes up, where you choose one of the three, which can be changed at anytime. The aim of this game is to get the gold cup in everyone of the races and complete the game 100%. There is no difficulty setting so after a few cracks at each game mode, it is quite easy to win all the races with ease, which is disappointing. After you have completed the game there is nothing apart from trying to improve your online score and just wanted to play a racing game that will get you back to the game, as nothing new happens. The game also goes surprisingly quickly being completed in four to five hours.

Controlling the car/motorbike is very sold and easy to use. In the car getting used to the drifting takes a bit of time because anytime you turn a sharp corner you automatically drift. Motorbikes cannot drift and therefore cannot take sharp corners so you bump into the edge quite a bit. The A.I drivers are quite ruthless and from race one they will be trying to knock you out.

All in all this is an excellent game for any hardcore racing enthusiast down to the casual gamer. I would recommend this to anyone who can afford to buy it, it is well worth this reduced price of $5.99

Graphics 9/10
Gameplay 8/10
Sound 8/10
Overall 8.5/10

I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- Ferrari GT: Evolution

The graphics aren't good, and if you're a hardcore racer, get Fastlane. You should review that. I love that game! And no, I'm not the dev.

The cell-shaded aspect to this doesn't click with me, and the controls are terrible as well. Not worth getting anymore as it is phased out by so many superior games.
