    In my opinion, because it isn't such a good game, the controls are weird to me and i hate playing it :D

    But then again, plenty of good reviews on the app store for some reason, so i don't think they are responding to negative criticism.

    Yea it seems like the current crop of racing games are shaking in their boots. I picked up Raging Thunder at $2 [great game!] but I think I'll be skipping this one.

    Personally, I found this one enjoyable. I paid $8 for it back in the day and definitely got my money's worth. It's plenty long, there are lots of unlockables, the graphics aren't terrible, and there are several different game modes.

    The controls are a little weird, primarily because the drift mechanics are so tough to handle. But overall, I've been pretty happy with the game, and I think it's probably worth the price if you want a few hours of solid gameplay.

    So you think Raging Thunder is worth the $2? I am considering purchasing it, but everyone in another thread hated the game and said it wasn't even worth the $2.

    I don't like it.
    The controls are weird
    Theres no acceleration button, i think
    Asphalts a great game but i wouldn't be surprised once NFS and Ferrari whatever comeout to see the price drop even more. Thats the app store for ya.

    I dunno i think Raging Thunder was 2 dollars well spent. I dont see anything wrong with the controls or with the multiplayer (although it should be possible to play with less than 3 other ppl), and personally i dont think an acceleration button is necessary for racing games. I mean plenty of games do fine without one (eg. powerboat).

    They started a new thing called Cyber Monday, basically the equivalent of Black Friday but for online shoppers. So, I guess it makes sort of sense?...

    Not worth more than $0.00

    You ain't seen nothing yet, couple of games I bought for 10 bucks are 1 buck now and other games I bought at full price when they came out are free now or have been free for a short time.

    I'm not sure if it's still $2, but if it is you should get it. The controls work more effectively when you turn down the sensitivity and there's really no need for manual acceleration. If you have to have it, there is an option for touch steering and gas.

    Either way I think it's $2 well spent. That's pretty much the price of a cup of coffee. Also, Polarbit is one of the better devs out there with two great well-polished racing titles [Crash Nitro Kart and RT] so throwing a few bucks their way could help fund some great future titles.

    I've probably put in 35+ hours into Assphalt. For me, that's well worth the original 10 bucks - no regrets at all though it is surprising how poorly the game holds up now (just kinda dull)
