Asphalt 6: Adrenaline

(i)

 

Fun, fast-paced, and a driver's ed teacher's nightmare.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Controlling the car is actually quite easy, using the system's internal gyroscope for steering and your right and left thumbs to boost and brake.

Violence

Cars frequently wreck or run into each other, causing physical damage and sometimes explosions. Players earn points for making other cars crash.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is a fast-paced street racing game that encourages drivers to zip through towns at insane speeds against other drivers. Doing so can result in some spectacular crashes, though, which could be startling to young players. The game has done away with some of the offensive elements of past installments -- such as the unlocking of "girls" in career mode -- and now focuses entirely on driving (and unlocking new cars and customization options). The Gameloft Live! opt-in feature allows players to connect to strangers, including the ability to text chat online with others. This review is based on the iPad version of the game; iPhone and Android versions may have differences in functionality.

QUALITY

There are plenty of racing games in the app stores, but the Asphalt series has always been near the top. ASPHALT 6: ADRENALINE is another winning installment, offering a fun, fast-paced experience with plenty of tracks, cars, and detailing options. It's also a long game that lets users feel they really got their money's worth from the app's reasonably high cost at the time of this review. The problem is, this sixth version of the series is pretty close to the fifth. Aside from the ability to get an acceleration boost by collecting nitro symbols on the track and the elimination of unlocking "girls," it's a virtual clone, in fact. And the multiplayer is so-so at best. That puts the series at risk -- and developer Gameloft will need to shake things up if it wants the inevitable Asphalt 7 to stand out from the crowd.

Asphalt 6

The game is fine, but it contents little violence because you can crash other cars! But that is not a big deal to me

It looks ok

This is not as good as hot wheels beat that, but still, it is not a bad game, but the age range on this game on CSM is crap, little kids can play this if they want to.
