Asphalt 6: Adrenaline
An insanely fast racer with some great track design, but it somehow feels a little empty.
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Review
by on April 22, 2011
If you want realism in your racing games, you should probably stop reading, because Asphalt 6 is more akin to bobsleigh than track racing. This is pure arcade thrill-seeking as you belt along at over 200mph, drift round corners, fly through the air at regular intervals, smash up trackside objects and force opponents into walls at every available opportunity.
There’s no denying the game is a blast. You can’t help but get taken in by the absurdly bouncy physics, despite some annoying quirks (notably the abrupt, unavoidable nature of many head-on collisions, which stop you dead, despite the cars seemingly being able to survive much worse). There’s a distinct lack of personality and depth, though, as well as framerate issues.
While the environments are more exciting than those in NFS: Hot Pursuit, we preferred the handling and chase-and-smash gameplay of EA’s product; still, if straight arcade racing is more your thing, Asphalt 6 is a better buy.
