I think I'll skip this because I already own the Asphalt 6. Thanks for the info.

Wish it was the 6...

BTW, can you guys comment on both of them? Is the framerate good? Gameloft games always piss me off because of their FPS

Asphalt 6 is the best computer game of all times for me personally; we are playing local multiplayer with iPads almost every day. Asphalt 5 was not bad too, best game when it was new. Now all-time best price for the first time (iPad version). No problems with FPS at all—runs smooth on iPad and iPad 2. Multiplayer in Asphalt 5 as well.

I already have Ashpalt 6. Is there really any reason to pick this one up?

When you love Asphalt 6 you should definitely get it for the buck. BUT
  1. it's a bit harder in career mode (cop chases—I love 'em and miss them a bit in A6: Adrenaline; okay the duels in A6 are hard enough…)
  2. the graphics are a step behind, logically, but it runs smooth and stable and even the local bluetooth multiplayer works fine
  3. the gameplay is ravishing like in A6, complete different tracks, but again clearly a step behind
For Asphalt fans a must have imho.
