Asphalt: Injection is a game that was developed by Gameloft and published by Ubisoft exclusive for the PlayStation Vita, a failed PlayStation handheld console. It was released in North America in February 15, 2012.
Why It's Injected with Mediocrity
- The game somehow looks like a reskin of Asphalt 6, but with different HUDs and UIs.
- The female announcer in the game is cringeworthy, even worse than that of its predecessor.
- Broken physics, whereas tracks such as New York, Shanghai and Hong Kong are very hard to drive on due to them.
- This game somewhat doesn't feel like Asphalt.
- When in a camera view, the game becomes a first-person game where you can view your cars in a very futuristic environment which looks very cool, but the character that you are moving moves very slow, you start to realize that this is a worthless feature since you don't already have at least six or seven cars at the start.
- Only a small amount of customization features, compared to Asphalt 9: Legends.
- You can't tell what cars are for sale or not.
- Poor graphics, even the 2012 Most Wanted game on PS Vita has superior graphics compared to this game.
- Broken AI.
- Awkward handling. Also, when you hit a concrete wall no matter how fast you're going, you still have control over your car, when in most Asphalt games you lose all control over your car when you hit a wall.
- Its gameplay becomes very boring when you've beat the campaign and played all of the modes, which are worthless.
- Multiplayer is boring than any other Asphalt game after and before it.
- A lot of technical problems.
- Forgettable soundtrack.
- Awkward sound effects, such as the takedown sound, asphalt sound, and crash sound.
- Clunky controls.
- No challenges at all.
- The Android version is buggier since most phones have graphical glitches with the rendering, the resolution is also broken, however it can be fixed.
- Instead of having to pay real world currency for this Asphalt game, you have to buy the car or upgrade you want using in-game money. This game was the only way to escape the now rampant microtransactions in the later games.
- This game was one of the few games in the Asphalt series to include police, which you have to avoid, though it's not executed well in the installment.
- Detroit, Hong Kong and Rio were added since the track removal from Asphalt 6, despite the broken physics.
- The Lenovo version includes 2 new cars, Lenovo Asphalt Injection and Ultimate, which both replace the Audi R8 GT and Ferrari Enzo.
