Asphalt 4 or Fastlane Racing?

Which one do you think is better. I tried searching for it thininkg that there should be a threat for it but I couldn't find one. If there is a thread already on this could you post a link to it?

Fastlane is better than Ferrari GT which is better than Asphalt 4.

What Fastlane doesn't have is different tracks with great scenery (everything looks bland and squarish in Fastlane, all tracks look similar), weather effect (which actually affects the slipperiness of the road too), bells and whistles and you can actually customise many manual settings too in Ferrari GT if you want.

What Fastlane has is great car graphics, nice lighting effects, superb framerate, great control. So if the race itself is all you want, get Fastlane. If you want story mode, different tracks, weather effects, etc, get Ferrari GT / Asphalt (not sure Asphalt has weather though).

I vote for Fastlane.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

There is customisation in Ferrari GT too.

I like Fastlane better simply for its smooth framerate. It gives me a real sense of speed.

Fastlane is the fastest racer I've played since F-Zero X.
Looks great, feels great, is great.

P.S. I think the poll answers your question.

FASTLANE!!!!! DON'T GET ASPHALT!!!

but seriously, the graphics in asphalt are pretty, but the gameplay is horrible. It is hard to turn, and don't be fooled by the "multiplayer" claim, it doesn't work! every time i try to open multiplayer, it give me some random BS about not have X server or port or something available. yeah... don't get asphalt.

I quite like fastlane though, it is really fun and has good steering controls.

2 different games really.

i like fastlane for it's excellent sense of speed and racing experience, and asphalt for a bit more racing 'action' and argy-bargy.

given a choice though, fastlane by a clear mile.
