If you're looking for a new racing game on your Switch, Asphalt 9: Legends could be just the ticket. The game is available to download for free as we speak.

It actually launched for the console yesterday, bringing with it an extensive roster of real hypercars from the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and more. Players can pick their dream ride and race across spectacular locations around the world, leaving their friends in the dust and aiming to become a "legend".

The free-to-play mechanics can be a nuisance - as they so often are - but if you enjoy the base game, we stumbled across one particular payment that gets rid of the misery once and for all, and it still works out cheaper than any AAA racer. We talk about that and more - including why we think the racing itself is definitely worth your time - in our full review. Here's a snippet of what we had to say:

"The one area in which it very much overachieves is by far the most important one: on the road. Once you’re past all the nonsense and are actually power-sliding into speed boosts, ploughing opponents into barriers, hitting angled jumps and barrel-rolling over fences into alternate paths, it’s ridiculously good fun. Take into account how long the Career mode is – you’re easily talking well over 100 hours, and that’s if you’re really good and don’t have to replay any races".
