Asphalt Elite Racing 4 HD | Nokia Game
The Porche Carrera 911 GT 2 Turbo hits your phone screen face up this time around with Asphalt Elite Racing episode 4. Just like we played on our desktop or laptop once upon a time, the game Need For Speed Porche Unleashed, Asphalt Elite Racing brings you the latest endeavor of a similar racing game for smartphones and mobile.
Well, at least the car is almost the same. I must admit that I always have something special when I think of a Porche, any Porche and the Carrera Coupe Turbo is among the top three of my most favorite cars ever. Living in Bangladesh where speed-bumps will never even allow a Porche to be driven and where total cost of any imported cars are 310% tax against face value + the face value itself, it is only an impossible dream to ever drive one!
And taka is way too devalued against dollars in the current foreign exchange rate, for example, one USD means 68 Taka or BDT 68 over here right now.
Anyway, I am way too off topic at the moment as I seem to get lost in a dream when I think of Porche. Back to the game and I must say that this high definition (HD) game is a follow up of the Asphalt Series consisting of Urban GT, Street Rules etc. Like the previous one, this game is also astoundingly similar in terms of high quality sound effects!
Except the cars maybe, and the overall graphics of this mobile game which seem to have improved a wee-lil-bit when you press the Nitrous Di Oxide or NOS button for full thrust, this symbian game is enjoyable! Love the blurry part more than anything else in this game. The tracks are new and there is a lotta snow around so you can be pretty sure that controlling the cars
will be a huge challenge. And unlike the last episode, this game is mainly designed on a “Are you better than me when turning in the corners?” gameplay. Beside the Porche 911, you also get the chance to drive a Lamborghini Diablo, A Ferrari and some other luxurious brands which brings me to my next point, speed!
The speed of the cars are simply phenomenal and it seems that the overall design of this game engine deserves a 5 upon 5. The acceleration of the cars are pretty wild, of course it varies from cars to cars, but the difference is minimal compared to the overall speed. In terms of overall handling on the dry scorching roads of Arizona, it is great and quite easy.
The game actually picks up its gears when you step up on the elite zone and race over the snow. Slide baby Slide!! I loved the overall experience driving on the snowy roads as it was pretty difficult to race on, avoid the cops, their bloody helicopters and control the cars at speeds over 350 KM/H or roughly 250 M/H.
Like the previous version of the game, the more you gain speed or bump against incoming traffic, the more “wanted” you are in the radar of the law and the more difficult plus aggressive the feds and cops become. So do watch out the corners and try not to bump too much as I can assure ya that if the feds are after your car then you have no bloody chance of escaping, so forget about winning the race! The story of the game is quite boring compared to Street Rules and I am disappointed in this part.
You can free ride, joy ride and race! You can ride a motorbike (…a racing and good looking Yamaha of course) to evade faster or to get yourself in cold zone during a chase. This have serious impact on the overall game however as you might get bored and never complete the tracks ever which will be a real waste of a good game.
