Gameloft Indulges In Its Usual Vice With The Lane-Based Endless Racer Asphalt Overdrive

There's a new Asphalt game available from Gameloft! But fans of the previous titles might not be so thrilled with the latest one. While Asphalt 8: Airborne was more or less a clone of arcade racers like Need For Speed, Asphalt Overdrive is a lane-based, candy-coated "endless" racer, with the player running away from cops in a Day-Glo take on 1980s California. It's a free download for Android 4.0 or higher.

If you moved one of the high-speed chases from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City into a highway with just three lanes, then removed the player's ability to steer or accelerate, it might look a lot like Asphalt Overdrive.

Asphalt 8 Airborne Review: You'll Believe A Car Can Fly

Gameloft has released eight games in the Asphalt series in just under nine years. If practice makes perfect, then Asphalt 8 should be nothing less than the greatest racing game ever made.

Between the Hot Wheels physics, licensed cars, online play, and gorgeous presentation, Asphalt 8 is worth a lot more than its $1 asking price. Whether or not it's worth all the in-app purchases that the player is constantly inundated with is another question, but in the game's defense, none of them are necessary to get all the cars and upgrades.

[New Game] Asphalt 8 Launches In Google Play, Brings Fast Cars And In-App Purchases

The newest incarnation of Gameloft's racing franchise, Asphalt 8: Airborne has hit Google Play. In addition to the standard race mechanics, this title will encourage players to pull off high-speed aerial stunts. Yeah, it is not a terribly realistic racing game.

Gameloft is really piling on the pretty with this one. The environments are huge, and there are more reflections and lighting effects than you can shake a gear shift at. There is a new physics engine backing the whole endeavor, which should make the cars feel a little more responsive and real.

Consumers have dropped $59 for visuals like these for years now, and while the next console leap is ushering in a sizable upgrade, do they compensate for the $58 difference in price? And that's assuming the price of next generation games remain the same.
