Asphalt 8: Airborne for iOS

By gameloft (iDP) Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review Staff Jun 23, 2014

Asphalt 8: Airborne is a detailed and dynamic racing game that lets you build up your racing skills and acquire better cars to compete against the best. Even if you've never played a game like this before, the responsive controls and great graphics will have you feeling at home in no time.


Good tutorial: When you first open this game, you have the option to complete a brief but thorough tutorial that helps you get the basics of operating your vehicle down. The mechanics are quick to learn but difficult to master, and with the solid foundation the tutorial provides, you'll be well on your way to winning a ton of races before you know it as you build your skills through practice.

Responsive controls: No matter what type of controls you prefer in this game, you'll find them responsive and accurate. You can use tilt, touch, or a combination of the two to control your vehicle, and there are no onscreen buttons to interfere with your view no matter which option you're using.


Cash to compete: As races become more difficult, it's hard to stay competitive in this game without spending some real cash. Certain items can't be unlocked through the course of gameplay, and others are quite hard to get and maintain just through the currency you acquire by winning races.

Bottom Line

Asphalt 8: Airborne provides an exciting and satisfying racing experience. Its graphics give you the feel of really racing down the track, and there are so many kinds of cars and upgrades you can purchase that you'll never run out of motivation to keep racking up points. The game is free, although it does offer plenty of in-app purchases.
