Hands on with Ferrari GT: Evolution for iPhone

Sounds promising. I wonder if it would be Gameloft's answer to Fastlane?

Well, with their Brother In Arms game being so F***ING FUN, i hope that this lives up to expectations. Hero of sparta better be good too. Damn, Gameloft is really doing well in the iPhone app market lol.

Frick, the graphics look way better than Asphalt. But..with the lack of nitro boost, it doesn't look that enticing. But i'm a sucker for graphics, and i've finished Asphalt already...hmmm...

Sounds distracting: "The game has the same three control options as Asphalt 4."

Bummer. Then I won't buy it.

I am glad they have done away with the nitro- especially as Asphalt used your nitro when you tilt forward (with accelerometer steering) even when you didn't want to use it.
The graphics look great. I just hope they sort out the controls for this one, so people can set the sensitivity to their liking.
Thanks for the link Donkei.

Slick. But i will wait until NFS comes out since i think both will have high price tags

Currently Playing: N.O.V.A, Skater Nation, 33rd Division, 7 Cities, Karnival.
Looking Forward to: GTA: Chinatown Wars, Ravensword (update), 1112 ep 02 and yeah the hangover on 1st

I think that NFS and Ferrari GT will rival each other.

Then we have

- Casual (Asphalt vs Raging Thunder)
- Normal (Ferrari vs NFS)
- Die Hard (Fastlane)

Not counting crap like Nitro Kart and GTS and Pole Position.

Nitro Kart is NOT CRAP! It's just a taste of nostalgia. Remember all those times you were pressing that x button to accelerate on that PS1 controller...

Nitro Kart is crap, because of the severe framerate issues. Otherwise, I would love this game, like I love Mario Kart on the DS and Wii. But in it's current state, it's unplayable.

Have to agree, i have a 2nd gen touch and it chokes on nitro kart way more than it should.

What? Why?

I'm pretty sure it's not all controls at the same time. You pick in the settings menu, ala Asphalt 4.
