SkyDrift - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Built from the ground up in the same vein as Hydro Thunder or San Francisco Rush, SkyDrift is an obvious homage to the last generation of great arcade racing titles. Replacing power boats with prop planes, it ticks just enough of the requisite boxes...

While there's nothing unique about SkyDrift, it successfully delivers fun and frantic arcade racing that's best enjoyed online.

If you've ever played an arcade or kart racer before, then you have a good idea of what to expect from SkyDrift. It does nothing that hasn't been done in the past, nor does it outperform any of its contemporaries in any meaningful way. Thankfully,...

It has many, many successes of its own, giving a rather unique spin to the arcade racing genre, and I'd highly recommend you consider it because it deserves attention and it's excellently priced for a game of its ilk. Despite flaws it's a cheap and...

Solid controls and a strong dependency on tactics mean that SkyDrift still manages to offer up a good amount of fun in spite of its derivative makeup, especially when played online.
