Summary: Controlling the car with the analog stick is terrible but once you turn on the motion sensors the game becomes playable, and more importantly FUN. Graphics are nice too, but better textures would be welcome.
Summary: had Asphalt on the 3DS and thoroughly enjoyed it (in spite of all the flaws that most reviewers complain of). It was natural to me that I get this one as well. While I'm aware that there are mobile phone versions of Asphalt, I don't like using controls with the accelerometer or touch screen with racing games.
