SkyDrift

 

What do you get when you put Crimson Skies, Blur and a little Mario Kart in a blender? You get SkyDrift, the new power-up based racing game made by Digital Reality released on XBLA. While your focus is speed and completing the race in the best position...

Although racing games have always been hugely popular, the genre has yet to leave a lasting mark on the Xbox Live Arcade. It seems like the only racers gracing Microsoft's download service are arcade ports (OutRun, Sega Rally) and advertisements...

Who needs a conventional racing game when there's SkyDrift? This action-packed airplane racer mixes Mario Kart with Ace Combat, making for one of the most compelling (and competitive) Xbox Live Arcade games of 2011. Some may frown at the lack paltry...

The summer is over and one might immediately assume that there aren't any new or interesting arcade games to grace the digital storefronts,

Skydrift brings gorgeous visuals, addicting multiplayer competition and interesting mechanics to the Xbox Live marketplace, which feels a little too saturated by art-games at this point. It doesn’t want you think, interpret or behold any artistry that...

SkyDrift Review

 

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

Online play is a lot of fun ; Pleasing visuals ; Tight controls

Only six different tracks to race on ; No local multiplayer

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,...

I remember when we all complained about weeks going by without XBox Live Arcade releases. There are times when I almost wish we'd return to that simpler time, if only for a little while.

Excellent arcade air racing ; Bursting with content ; Forgiving respawns

Some stilted language and typos ; Some damage types aren’t terribly obvious when inflicted

I remember when we all complained about weeks going by without XBox Live Arcade releases. There are times when I almost wish we’d return to that simpler time, if only for a little while. It’s not that the games coming out on the platform are bad, quite...

SkyDrift is the coolest Mario Kart game in the sky you've never heard of...except with no Mushroom Kingdom characters or karts.

All told, SkyDrift is a pleasant surprise and an impressive feat from Digital Reality. Something is just beautifully chaotic about the savagery of nailing other planes amidst serene-looking landscapes. This is a fun, arcade-style racer that offers...

Skydrift is Mario Kart meets Wipeout in the sky.

Skydrift is an enjoyable experience with a low price tag, a substantial amount of content, smooth controls, and breathtaking environments, and all this is remarkably polished for such a low entry price. Hopefully the online community is able to survive...

Sky Drift review

 

Fans of flying games should be pretty disappointed with their options this generation. Sky Drift successfully tries to do something different in the genre, potentially expanding its appeal. They combine Mario Kart-like power-ups with a flight racing...

Don’t let the cute-looking planes fool you. Sky Drift is a game more intended for a hardcore audience than the Mario Kart crowd. It proves to be a much more difficult game than you would think given its use of speed boosts, missiles and shield...

Skydrift- Xbox 360

 

With little media coverage, SkyDrift may also become an under-selling "cult classic". However, for a 1200MSP downloadable game, you could do a lot worse. If you're still not sold, there's always the free trial version. My recommendation is to go in for...

Consumer review by:

Skydrift- Xbox 360

 

Skydrift has undeniable old school charm and revels in its arcade accessibility. It's an adrenaline fueled, yet short lived, thrill ride that's low on content but high on pick-up-and-play appeal. Certainly worth the attention of aeronautical racing...
