Asphalt update??

I bought Asphalt the other day, great game, but controls are shocking. The accellerometre (or however u spell it) isn't sensitive at all, i have to turn it so much that my game turns portrait, it's ridiculous. Is there an upcoming update at all? Also what control scheme do you use (i have to stick with steering wheel)? Cheers

There was already an update intended to fix the steering, lol. I like the game personally and find it fun to play.

But there are three different settings for steering.. have you tried them all? I would say the controls are perfect... i've handed my phone to people to try asphalt and they've all caught on after a lap or so... maybe try the other options?

My best times are with the tapping left and right for steering... not the accelerometer..

But should I buy Asphalt 4? I think in 2 or 3 weeks NFS: Undercover do come for the iPod. Should I buy Asphalt 4 now or should I wate for NFS: UC?

Just wait for NFS and see how that controls. For myself, I stopped playing Asphalt after the last update because I hate the new steering sensitivity and I can't believe that Gameloft doesn't let us set up our own value of sensitivity.

i dont use the accelerometer controls......i steer by tapping the screen on the left or right and this works perfect for me.

if you want a good acc. control try powerboat racing. it just feels natural there.
