Asphalt Urban GT

playmagazine
8 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Gameloft has come out of the gate smoking with their debut title, Asphalt Urban GT: a significantly juiced version of their impressive Tapwave racer. The graphics, which are stunning overall for a handheld, are hard to define at times—rectified by a few practice laps or switching into first person—but otherwise, this is a gorgeous game by any standards, not to mention a full-fledged, grown-up, evolution-style racer packed with great handling (drifting is easy and key),...

  • Excerpt: When Gameloft released Ghost Recon for the N-Gage, I knew they were a talented development studio. Asphalt Urban GT for the N-Gage reaffirmed this belief. Now, however, with the release of the DS version, I have doubts about their commitment to having the highest quality product. Don't get me wrong, this is not some crap racer that you would find on most handhelds. Asphalt Urban GT is a solid street racer, with slick visuals, decent controls, and a nice variety of cars.

  • Excerpt: After being released to general disappointment on Nokia’s N-Gage platform last year, the odds were against Gameloft’s Asphalt Urban GT being a smash hit on Nintendo’s DS. When you consider that the game’s only real competition in the racing genre – Namco’s Ridge Racer DS – isn’t available in Japanese and European stores as yet, there’s even less reason to think that it’ll flop commercially.

  • Excerpt: In Evolution mode you race in different cities with traffic going both ways and this can get annoying. Within the traffic, and on most of the courses, you will see trucks with ramps on the back of them. As soon as you even touch one of these ramps with your car, you go flying. Catch one of these trucks at the wrong time and you find yourself crashing into an invisible wall at any of the tracks corners. This would eventually put you at a stand-still when you land.
  • Pros: Three different racing modes Options 25 different Licensed cars including the dreamy Seleen S7 Arcade Mode Evolution Mode
  • Cons: Three different racing modes Options 25 different Licensed cars including the dreamy Seleen S7 Arcade Mode Evolution Mode

Portable Review
6 June 2005
  • Excerpt: “Rushed” was probably the most frequently used word during the DS launch but does that mean that all the games that came out sucked? Asphalt Urban GT is probably not the best racing game you will ever play, but it is a pretty solid and fun game to play. As you probably already know, Asphalt Urban GT is a port of an N-Gage title which probably isn’t the best thing gameloft could have done.

  • Excerpt: Pretty simple gas/brake/turbo-boost stuff, perhaps excessively techty about the wall rubbing, but really good looking and consistently fun.

Asphalt: Urban GT

Nintendo World Report
9 December 2004
  • Summary: The first racer on Nintendo DS doesn’t break any new ground, but turns out to be pretty satisfying.
  • Pros: A wide selection of licensed cars with noticeable control differences, Lively tracks and environments, Smooth, intuitive control (once you get the button assignments where you like them)
  • Cons: Auto-save only kicks in at the end of a series of races or after a duel challenge (thank Nintendo for sleep mode), Cars rarely budge when you plow into them
