    I've purchased both Asphalt and CroMag, and I wasn't super keen on either of them. Is Crash going to be any different? I know it's been out for a while now, and most of you have probably forgotten about it, but I'm just wondering if I'm going to get $6 bucks worth of fun from it or not.

    Opinions? Rants? Thoughts?

    Thank you!

    If you didn't like Asphalt, you're not going to like anything.

    To clarify, I think Asphalt is a quality game. Don't get me wrong. It just wasn't really my thing.

    I think Crash is a great game. There is only 12 levels but there are also time trial and missions too. I think it is worth it and it is far better than Cro Mag.

    I think it's a great game! Worth the 6 bucks. If u're really not into racing games then i doubt it will appeal to you though.
    You can watch demos and reviews on Youtube before buying it. I did that before buying any games in app store!

    I think that crash is a mix of both asphalt and cro-mag (but leaning more towards the cro-mag). It uses the accelerometer to steer (as is expected) but has items (like cro-mag) and has unlockable features (like asphalt). If you liked it on the PS1, then you'll probably enjoy the port to the iPhone. Graphics are as good/bad as Asphalt.
     
  9. Still waiting for it to drop it price to around $3 before I bite. Been burned too many times before.

    Excuse me for being off-topic but why is Raging Thunder such a waste of money?

    I own every racing game for the iPhone. Raging thunder is a nice arcade style racer with not as much content in term of tracks and customization than asphalt. That is not meant in a negative way - I liked rt because it did not force me to do that much stuff.

    Crash is a kart racer in the likes of mario kart, but it does not even reach 50% of the game content and "funness" than mario kart for the ds.

    I removed both games because of severe framerate issues: crash becomes unplayable when you are not alone on the track and in rt the later tracks start stuttering even when you are alone.

    We ran a comparison article with video back in July.

    We liked Crash better than Cro-Mag Rally.
