Skydrift is a great little game to play when you have some time to kill. It's fast, trilling, and careless fun. The graphics are really great for such a low priced game (think AAA game quality). One of the things that makes this game even more fun is the AI of the other pilots...they really are smart. They play just like real people would and will sometimes drop mines right where the power ups are, will wait just until you are about to finish then hit you with missiles, and they will try to evade your missiles. I definitely recommend this well polished racer if you like games such as Mario Kart, Sonic and All-Stars Racing.
Can’t think right now of a game like this one, but it feels like if you have played it before, there is a lot of racing games out there, this one is very cheap and good. Another review says that it’s cheaper than Sonic titles, and yeah it is, but still it’s a good quality game that you should buy if you like to race with planes, controls are easy (not a realistic game), you can have a good time, it has multiplayer, DLCs for more content (planes), great maps. The price it’s ok for what it has to offer, you do feel the rush of going between rocks at a nice speed wanting not to crash. It’s like dose Mario karts games, racing, grabbing guns, shooting others, BUT in the air, and that’s a nice twist because you have to control more than just left or right. I think it’s better if you get multiple copies and play with friends =P, showoff your skills. Remember, use the vouchers for cheap cheap games. Hope this helps you.
SkyDrift, a game developed by Digital Reality, it's a racing game where you pilot an airplane and face intense combats against your opponents while racing against them. There's no place here for the faint of heart: the races are fast, the combat frenetic and the routes full of obstacles. What makes SkyDrift great, is the fun you'll get while playing it and its amazing moments where you'll be screaming "oh my god!" or "holy...!". With tight controls, you will be able to do some great stunts easily in these planes, especially with a gamepad. Like any other "Kart" game, you will able to get items (weapons or bonuses) during the races to use against your opponents or for yourself, but also, you can convert these items in extra boost for more boost speed. The more you win or get to a podium position, more planes or skins are unlocked for you. The closest game I could think to SkyDrift, is the flying segments of "Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed", but SkyDrift in 10x more intense, faster and open. The graphics are very similar to that game too, everything is very colorful, nice and well designed, but not everything can be good, right? Exactly as "Bang Bang Racing", another game made by the same developers, you may find some graphical glitches or corruption from time to time that can be a little annoying, but luckily they are really fast, so they're not game breaking. Others negative points are: not being able to change the game language from the in-game options, so it'll always starts in the same language as the one set in the operating system (the only way to start the game in another language is to change this in the control panel); and if you play with a gamepad, the controls on screen will show always keys, not gamepad buttons, even in the tutorial. So if you want to know what the buttons do, you will have to see the control scheme in the options. But everything else is so good, that you will forgive those issues and just enjoy SkyDrift.
So, this is SkyDrift. An amazing airplane racer. Basically, this game is like Blur, but it has planes instead of cars. I haven't been into the game that much, but still, the game is really well made. You have many powerups to collect and shoot at your opponents. The gameplay is really good and easy to pick up. They have understood that airplane controls are difficult and hence put 'instant respawn' when you crash into something. And, I'd suggest to play this game with a controller. (I played this with the Xbox 360 controller for Windows.) The graphics are good and not so GPU hungry. The gameplay mechanics might seem a bit dull and unrealistic, but the game is enjoyable. We do not see any airplane games these days, except for a few flight simulators. The concept of the game is really new and a bit different from your regular video game. The tracks are challenging and varied. You also have boost (like the nitro in your daily racing game), and you can convert a powerup into boost if you won't use it. The idea of the game is fantastic. If you're looking for a casual airplane racer, then this is your best bet. And as mentioned earlier, you might require a controller.
I'll admit, when I bought Skydrift, I had low expectations. But this game was a very pleasant surprise. A throwback to old arcade style racing games. Great graphics with beautiful scenery. The keyboard controls were a bit challenging at first but are a bit easier with some practice. You can use a gamepad, if you have one, to make things easier. Not overly complicated. You pick a race, pick a plane (and a skin if you like), then start racing. A fun game with a lot of replay value and at a good price.
