  • The game is all in 3D and boasts some impressive graphics.  The vehicles look true to life and the environments are extremely detailed and very interactive
  • This game is meant for higher end Android devices in order to get the most out of the game.  If you have a lesser phone then you should look into Asphalt 3

  • The AI drivers that you will compete against are actually pretty good and will challenge even the best virtual gamers out there
  • Most of the game can be stored to the SD card instead of the internal memory which is actually a big plus since this game is fairly large
  • Other than a few of the intense moments in the game the gameplay is fairly smooth. If there is a lot going on in the screen then it can get jerky sometimes
  • You will win cash for winning races which you can use to upgrade your cars as well as hotter girls for when you win


As far as graphics on a racing game, Asphalt 5 can’t be beat.  The cars look incredibly realistic and the environments are just as stunning.  This is one of those Android games that has finally lived up to its potential in that area.  The main concern with this game is the lack of smooth gameplay.  When there is too much going on in the screen the gameplay gets laggy and jerky, even on the higher end Android phones.  This is a little disappointing and can effect your overall performance in the race.  If it weren’t for this little glitch, this game would be one of the best gaming apps on the Android.
