Asphalt 9: Legends
Asphalt 9: Legends Review
Asphalt 9: Legends is a racing game that enjoys commercial fame. It's conquered many platforms, including iOS. You progress through races to earn bragging rights and participate in more challenging races.
Mimicking Driving Experience
The game offers interesting sensory experiences. The burning tire, engine noise, collisions, blurred vision, changing weather conditions... The list goes on and gives the most realistic racing experience out of any compatible games.
While driving, you will feel like you're falling off the track but still controlling the car. Trains and other obstacles put you on your heels. Thanks to intricate visual effects, such as dust kicked off by your tires, the game looks superlative even on old iPhones. The attention to detail is amazing, and all available cars are worth collecting.
Just like previous games in the series, Asphalt 9: Legends features touchscreen and tilt steering. However, developers added a new control mode where you should tap and hold the screen to drift the car. Swiping left and right will send you to that side of the road.
Thanks to three different control schemes, this is one of the best racing games in the App Store. Asphalt 9: Legends has you driving real cars in a series of races. These races are packed with insane jumps, different pathways, wild turns, and abilities that help you drive faster. You can try to beat challenges alone or play against other people.
All cars are sorted into classes, and when you first launch the game, you start from the bottom with little cash. The goal is to make money, buy fancier vehicles, and climb the ladder. To unlock new cars, you need blueprints. Cars can have from 4 to 6 stars, which changes their stats, performance, and capabilities. There is no hard paywall here, and the game keeps you hooked and wanting more.
