#1. Asphalt 8
Asphalt 8 is one of the most popular car racing game that you can find for an Android device. It is a graphics intense game which requires a good performing device in order to run it without any noticeable lags. This game has taken Android gaming to a whole new level. It is one of the most loved multiplayer game as well.
It surely offers a campaign mode / the single player mode where you will have to race through each track in order to unlock the next ones. The in-game download really annoys me for this game. You might be thinking that you would have to just download it from the Play Store, and that’s what will make the game run. Unfortunately, even after a huge download, you will be asked to download the racing tracks separately. So, if you have a slow Internet connection, I guess, you would start hitting the wall very soon after installing it.
Overall, considering you have a very good Internet connection, you will get a rich racing experience with Asphalt 8 with which no other game can match. Do note, that this game isn’t resource-friendly!

Yet another impressive car racing game developed by Electronic Arts. If you have already experienced Asphalt 8, this is completely different.

You can compete against live players online. But, you need to make sure of your Internet connection, or else you’ll lose the race! What more? You can even team up with your friends to form a crew and take on other crews!
#6. Asphalt Nitro
The team at Gameloft definitely realized the hardships a user goes through with a weak Internet connection. Obviously, they won’t be able to download Asphalt 8 from the Play Store.
