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.

What’s It About?
In ASPHALT XTREME players customize their rides, adding everything from extra nitro bursts to better handling and race in a series of competitions in locations around the world. Players can enjoy the game as a single-player experience or -- after they've played for a while -- against other human opponents. Continuing to upgrade your cars is critical to the game, and players can either use money earned in-game or use real money via in-app purchases.
Is It Any Good?
There's no denying the fun that's found in a good racing game, but this one doesn't go far enough off-road to offer much that's new or exciting. Exploring new routes and looking for shortcuts is half the fun, and Asphalt Xtreme is fast-paced, nitro-infused fun in a beautiful series of environments, both in the single-player and multiplayer components. However, there's nothing that really makes this racer stand out. Also, the push for in-app purchases is heavy but not any more than similar titles of this genre -- and the game is fairly generous with rewards. Still, parents may want to discuss rules around spending real money before the flags go down. Ultimately, it's a fun diversion that will keep you entertained for a few days, but it's not one that will hold your attentions long-term.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about responsible driving in real life vs. in Asphalt Xtreme -- and how what happens in games shouldn't happen in real life.
