A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The game requires some coordination but is easy to grasp after a little practice. 

Violence

You can run other drivers off the road, but there's no blood or death. 

Sex
Language
Consumerism

Upgrading your cars is essential. You can do this with money won in races, but it takes a long time to gather enough cash. Using real-world money is certainly pushed as the preferred method. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

The game's focus is speed, but players are sometimes encouraged to wreak havoc on the environment and run other drivers off the road. To upgrade cars, which is essential, there's a strong push for in-app purchases. Learn more about the information the game collects and shares in its privacy policy

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. 

  • Talk about in-app purchases and your rules around them. Can kids use real money to upgrade cars? If so, how much?
