Asphalt Urban GT (Nokia N-Gage review)

Developer: Gameloft
Publisher: Nokia
Released: 2004

Asphalt Urban GT is an arcade-style racing game that was also released on the Nintendo DS in 2004.

+ Driving recklessly to top up your nitrous metre is thrilling and the risk-reward gameplay is very similar to Burnout (2001, PlayStation 2).

+ Track design is sensational with a wide variety of locales in which to race, and the satisfying drift mechanic is a breeze to master.

+ The fast-paced action constantly leaves you feeling on the edge of control, which is both nerve-wracking and exhilarating.

+ Huge array of vehicles to unlock and there's a myriad of options in terms of customising them to your liking.

+ The frame-rate is absolutely rock-solid and there's little-to-no slowdown despite the detailed scenery and high-octane racing.

- However, the pixelated graphics do make it challenging to see where corners start and you'll often commence drifting too early/late.

- The Cop Chase mode should have been a fun Chase HQ (1988, Arcade) clone, but it's far too difficult to lock onto vehicles.
