a step down from asphalt 6 graphic wise IMO
Don't worry, they will fix it with the next update.
Whenever it may come

I'll get back to you soon on this.
I had 3,3 GB free space - let's see how it's gonna look after downloading AND installing (not running the game).

The biggest upgrade is the graphics (playing on a 4s) so not sure if people with older devices should skip this one.

Also, the iap does not effect you at all, its just like how a6 was. theres goals to acheive as well, like win a competitive event without any knockdowns.
As for A6.5, I can agree totally
Better handling = obvious plus. No more wild west wagons with turbonitro.. ; )

One question, though: which track was taken from Fast5? Haven't played it.
As for me, feeling of A6 is quite OK.
I will be playing on iP4, expect some heavy problems (A6 with the latest update runs far from smooth, comparing to SGS2), but will know soon how it works out. After all, it's still earlier than in the case of the Android premiere.

BTW. Anyone can risk when it'll come to SGS3?

Default Game Impressions

No intro movie this time.

Starting immediately with career. Got 10.000 money before start. Begin modestly with the Abarth 500 ESSEESSE and a new track Hawaii. Could upgrade with the money but refused. Refused sponsor as well.

Eleminated one opponent in the first race, won it and made 31,250 game dollars and 9,288 "fame". Collected additional game dollars, altogether 43,250. And five stars. Accomplished two challenges.

I am not sure if the graphics are on par with Asphalt 6 (for some local friends and me personally the best computer game of all time and all consumer software platforms) here on iPad 3. The first track is beautiful (and completely new). You travel under a waterfall. The controls are pretty the same (standard settings with tilt to steer, brake to drift, launch nitro/adrenaline: touch the screen below right), the feeling is almost the same. The controls are as precise as in A6. Maybe the handling is a tiny bit better but it's hard to tell with those first cars.

No, I don't want to share my results with a social networks. This comes in the way often.

Upgraded max. tempo 227 -> 231 km/h, acceleration 6.9 -> 6.83 sec for 8,000 game dollars each.

Won the next track in career: London. A k.o. race. Unlocked the next car Land Rover Range Rover EVOQUE and could buy it for 43,809. Frame rate is okay but some elements look rather pixelated.

Wait. That's new. "Free preview. You can use a Chevrolet Camaro GS only for this event for free." Used it in Havanna. It's basically the same track as in Asphalt 6: Adrenaline but a bit spiced up. Maybe the have renovated some streets in the town. Some things are looking more detailled and pleasing, others look pixelated, again. Won the classic race with more than 20 sec under par. Got rewards, money, new level, one star, upgrade 2 for max. tempo unlocked. Bought a sponsor.

The next one is the first real race offside training. London again. Okay, seems to be easier than A6. Won and unlocked a bunch of things. This was Cup 1. Cup 2 starts with Moscow track. Same as before: Prettier but pixelated. The nitro drops and other elements are places on other spots. Otherwise the same track as in A6. Another track they took from Furious Five and another one from A5 if I remember correctly.

Not bad so far. But I have a strange feeling that they didn't put that much love in it as in A6. Everything seems to be a bit simpler. The garage, the menues, choices, comments of the lady. We'll see… And they should get the iPad 3 graphics fixed urgently.

Edit: Told you all the installed size already here:
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpo...&postcount=112

Will test on iPad orig. and iPhone 4 soon…

Edit: 1.4 GB expanded & installed on iPad orig. and iPhone 4 as well. When you compare to A6 it doesn't look that bad like on iPad 3 (the difference isn't that huge). Framerate smooth, controls perfect.

I really wish apple would start using more powerful hardware. The fact you use a display that has triple the pixels as my 55inch tv and only upgrade graphics side of chip is beyond me. I really hope madfinger nails there game to show devs it's possible. Anyway can't wait for this game tonight. Loved 6 and I'm sure 7 will be great

Asphalt 6 was only 1gb on iPhone 4S, not 1.7gb .....however Asphalt 7 is universal so probably 1.4 on both.

The most recent update to asphalt 6 hit 1.7 gb on my 4s. It was originally (launch day, iPhone 4) in or around 1.1 gb. More or less the same on iPad 2, as in 1.7gb.
7 is 1.4 on both so happy about that straight away.
Initial impressions are that it is Asphalt 6.5, which is not a bad thing at all.
It's no Real Racing 2 but again not a bad thing because this is an arcade action racer and RR2 is a racing simulator.
The new cars alone would be worth it as a 99 cent iap in Asphalt 6 but the new tracks, better physics, fabulous graphics and better handling are most certainly worth it.
The iap and upgrade questions are a tad annoying but iap is totally unnecessary to progress with the career mode of the game, which you will. Its only necessary if you want to skip to the best cars but that defeats the purpose of the career mode so see no point in getting any iap.
If you haven't finished Asphalt 6, I'm not sure if I'd bother with it.
Definitely would recommend buying if you've never bought an Asphalt game or if you've finished with Asphalt 6. Consider it a continuation of 6 and you'll be very happy with it.
Looks great on the 4s by the way and is more suited to the iPhone than the iPad for me, but is still a great buy for any of them.
Instabuy is my advice.

If you loved 6, you will definitely love this one as well. It is as much fun and the career seems to have an awfull lot more to it.

Plus I kinda have to agree with you on the chip thing. The gpu upgrade just seemed the minimum necessary to push the pixels. It's the main reason I skipped the 3 and will wait for the 4.

Im staying most of the night too.

Yeah i didnt want to put anyone off by saying it should be asphalt 6.5, really enjoying it. First car was really slow so that didnt help with first impressions, its a different story when you start getting the ferraris and lambos Nice sense of speed. You can rent any car which is a nice touch, even if you havent unlocked it.
