This is sky-driving racing game, that i always thought not worthy enough. So wanted to give it a try since it is so cheap in GMG. To my surprise, this game delivers more than i expected. The graphics is so damn good and gameplay is addictive. Locations are good, and it is tough even in easy mode, but once you get used to, it will be fine. AI is ok, but not excellent. Still you can give it a try if you like sky-racing games much. This one will not disappoint you.

This game is the racing game I always wanted to make! The gameplay is fast, exciting and well balanced. The visuals are stunning! Level design is very well thought out. Music/sound very atmospheric. There is not a huge variety of power ups, but they are varied enough to make the game even more exciting.
The controls are excellent too. It works well with the keyboard, but it really rocks with on my Logitech Attack 3.
This is purely for speed lovers. If you like spending hours before your race start, to tune your vehicle, buy parts (even buy a house and furniture in some racers), stay away. This in some ways, some really good ways, is old school racing. Just grab your vehicle of choice and GO! There is a large variety of beautifully designed vehicles to choose and unlock, with different features/characteristics anyway.
This game is the closest I've felt to being in an actual Star Wars style pod racing! I need to play this in 3D!

Skydrive is the type of game you don't see much of on the market. This adrenaline pumping sky-racing game is what I've missed in a long time. Good graphics, simple and fun game mechanics and the thrill of winning that keeps you hooked on the game. It brings out a decent challenge too! The best of it is however the multiplayer. Get some of your best friends online and shoot'em up! All in all I recommend it, especially for all the sky-racing fans.

SkyDrift isn't a particularly ambitious game, but it does pretty much everything it tries to do right. It's strength is that it keeps things simple as a no-frills arcade combat racer. The game features a variety of planes adapted to different play styles and a small set of power-ups that all serve useful purposes. There aren't many tracks, but they provide a nice variety of large open areas and tight spaces that reward precision flying, and there are a few different game modes that add some different twists as you replay the tracks.
My one minor quibble with the game is that the difficulty settings feel too widely spaced. "Hard" is very challenging (as it should be), while I found that I was able to finish in first with great ease even as I was just starting out while playing on "medium." However, that's a pretty minor issue, and if it's the worst thing I have to say about the game, that's a pretty good sign.
There's nothing remarkably surprising about this game, but it takes an old formula and combines it with modern graphics, responsive controls, and a cheap price tag without doing anything to mess up what's worked in the past. What's not to like about that?

Skydrift is one of those games that no matter how frustrated you get, you keep coming back to it just because its so enjoyable. Sure, the controls take getting used to, but once you overcome that, you feel like you rule the skies as you shoot down your opponents with missiles, or successfully pull a tight turn through a small opening. The main challenge lies in some serious multitasking, as you simultaneously navigate your plane, pick up power-ups, and try to destroy your competition. As you advance and unlock more planes and more tracks, the game just keeps getting better and better. In short if you have any interest at all in the racing genre (and who doesn't, really?) this is one game you can't afford to miss.
