While racing games may be difficult to pull off on a mobile device, this one goes for a far-too-simplified approach that's ultimately unsatisfying. In Asphalt Street Storm Racing, you're yet another driver trying to make a name for himself in the local illegal street racing scene. Except that while most street racing games have you weaving in and out of traffic as you try to beat the competition to the finish line, this one just has you drag racing, and only requires you to hit the shift button when your engine revs up to a certain point. Which means that winning is really just about hitting a button at the right time, and making sure you've upgraded your car's performance, something that requires money. The problem being that while this can be challenging for a little while, especially since you have to also hit a button at just the right moment to start driving, it quickly becomes too easy to win every time. And that's true whether you race against the computer or another player. Though only if you remember to upgrade your car; otherwise, you can't win even with the best of timing. Which means that while some people might be entertained by this for a while, most gearheads will feel that Asphalt Street Storm Racing will only satisfy their need for speed for as long as it takes to download a better racing game.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
