Early Access Review
Posted: September 24
TL;DR
Reccomend to purchase as fast-paced arcade that really feels like flying, where you race with other players and/or bots.
Ingame purchases are purely cosmetics and not pay-to-win. Skill rewarding progression system. Low system requirements. Active developers who actually play their own game and are quick to respond on forums.
_________
Advantages
--------------
1. Ingame purchases. Maybe the 1st reason you was thinking of buying this game is to farm and sell items on Steam market.

Well, there is a 2-4 items drop per week for completing races (in multyplayer and seldom - in solo). Developers have brought a cosmetics system which really fit into gameplay (unlike in many other games with skins). Here you have full body paintworks and artistic stickers as items. You could place up to 12 (I think) stickers depending on plane model you have.

Both of really good quality and variety. It is delightful to see (and show to others) your plane in slow motion before every round starts. At some point you might even rethink your initial plan and keep stickers on your plane instead of having these on Steam market.

2. Performance. Interfaces are nice and intuitive. Graphics are lightweight, so system requrements are acceptable even for 5-6 years old PCs.

3. Simple to learn. It isn't hardcore flight simulation. Here they have pickable buffs, instant respawning and some healthpoints system. You loose durability of your plane with each respawn or collision.

Really hard to master. You have to be ready to improve your skills and re-do same tracks numerous times. It actually could become disadvantage at some point.

4. Progression system. It encourage you to accomplish tasks to gain access to faster planes and improved additional units.
Tasks are vary from finish race in top-3 to hold below some average altitude throughout race or finish with damage taken below some % (percent).

Though second tier plane is heavier, slower and controls worse than 1st tier and 3rd tier is way faster and more controlable than previous two, developers promised to balance these tiers later.

You could actually improve your skill by following progression curve.

5. Closed lobbies. In theory there's Events feature taht allows to create a lobby for only invited people to join it. Haven't test that yet.
Variety. Weather conditions changing with every round. Vast range of races being rotated in multyplayer and available to be chosen on your liking in solo mode.

6. Player created tracks. There's ingame editor ther you could build, test and publish tracks. Many of player created tracks were approved and are ingame now.
Game replays. You could capture nice video from it or practice with ghost model of 'old' self.

7. Nice additional features. Ingame videorecorder and editor to create animated GIFs of your gameplay with some options like text over the video and photofilters. Global leader boards and leaderboards for every given race.

__________
Disadvantages that were promised to be fixed by developers.
---------------
1. Midair collisions. Bots often try to ram you. In 90% of cases it would be vertical collssion there someone hit you from above or below. You can't control your plane anymore and it flyes in unpredictable directions, but other person (who rammed you) won't be affected in any way - nor by physics or race/health-points penalty.

2. Respawn. It sometimes psition you in bad spots. I hate it the most when it respawn me right in front of mountain pass with no way to evade collision into it and then again respawn at the same spot.

3. Controls. It might be subject to some desync, but I had issues with controls become barely respondable. It could drive me mad how sometimes palne won't follow my commands and just fly on its own will/
Joystick sensitivity was even worse for me - I had to move stick all the way to a side so game recognized what I want to start turn. It might be lack of expierence in adjusting joystics on my side.

4. HUD. It's positioned somethere in the bottom of the screen and has Throttle, Speed indicators and Radar of tiny size. Problem is you I rarely look in there and I completely miss the speedometer in my expierence.

5. Matchmaking. Sometimes it puts low tier planes and high tier ones (with top modifications on them) in one race. Also, there's voting system to chose the next race, but it often offers bad choise - between 2 hard/unwanted tracks.

6. Night mode. In particalr flight lights. These now made to work as floodlights pointed backwards - stay behind few planes and vast bright spots of all colours all over your screen would blind you, so you have to rely on your luck not to hit anything in your way.

7. Tasks. Some have confusing descriptions.

If u liked Sonic & all-stars racing or Skydrift ,Altitude0
is a must-have arcade/racing game.No,it doesnt have
guns like the titles above but it doesnt lack in anything.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Traps in the flags and aero tricks give a nice playthrough.
The game modes are: solo license,championship mode
and users tracks.Variety in the difficulty of maps,though
a new content / update is always welcomed.

+ Able to choose control modes (arcade and advanced
mode for more simulated flying)

+ The menu interface seems polished

+ Steam inventory drops,not necessary feature but its still nice to see

+ Superb soundtrack

+ Track editor is available,a good way for new content

~ Online features exist but not many players out there yet
(AI exist though,with rankings from ghost players/other users scores)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall,i would recommend this game,it gets often
updated so far,hope to see new content/updates in future
(for planes,enviroment-maps,plane parts etc)

This is a fun and fast paced flying game with a focus on speed and altitude. It drops items that can be sold on the Steam market.
This game has very nice graphics as well as Devs that are present and allowing the community to help shape the game. Support this game!

I don't remember when was last time when I truly enjoyed racing game with planes. Even tho it's more of arcade game than simulator, it's really great. It's fun to complete training and gaining title of A0 Master, it's fun to beat weekly/overall records of certain maps and compete with others, it's fun to play on multiplayer and singleplayer. Sadly, there aren't many players and mostly you will play alone (you can do that on both single and multi option) but I hope it will change after game will leave early access. You can also customize your plane with special skins and stickers, which drops weekly like in CS:GO. With team of 2 people updates are going rather slowly but there is tracks editor, so if you think there aren't enough maps you can try yourself at making one. Even if this game is still in early access, it's at playable stage. I think Altitude0: Lower & Faster as final product will be something great.

Hi! Please read the previous helpful customer reviews, because I couldn't agree more with their recommendations. Stick with Advanced plane control mode (though) and you will soon become one of best pilots around. We are trying to build strong community, with weekly multiplayer events, building user tracks... I'm sure broadcasting the MP events will bring some more pilots. Small dev team has definately developed a big game with an altitude :-)

Trackmania with planes!

In Altitude0 you race against the ghosts of other players on many different, and some whacky, tracks. At the current version there are three planes to choose from, all with slightly variying characteristics.

Having spent more time with the game now, seeing the development pace, a small review correction was in line - the pilot wings experience i was talking about could still be achieved, but i don´t think it is going to happen soon´ish =)



[old review]
My short "early access" summary so far, even with some vital features still missing:

If you always wanted "Pilot Wings" on PC (for the last 20 fricking years), this finally could be it - if (!) some vital features like steam workshop support, an in-depth license system, stronger single player, and live multiplayer against friends made it into the game quickly.

If you are into speed, crazy maps and you dont get frustrated too fast, i definetely recommend this game!
This isnt about skilltrees, leveling and stuff, this is about oldschool fingerskills and beating records, flying as low as you can, since this makes you faster. I play altitude0 since almost two years now and it is still one of my all time favourites.

10 / 10 would buy it again

Very challenging skill based game.
Would suggest to use advanced user settings and practice tail rudders first and then wing rudders on tutorials to attain mastery over plane movement control and then attempt to sync for a new comer.
Takes a while to get used to the controls but once you get a hang of it you cant stop making podium finishes in races which is when the fun really starts.
Has lot of customizations,tracks,leader boards,skins,custom races,replays and multiplayer.
Ideal game to bring friends over at home and play against one another.
Nice music,scenery and plane animations.
Also lots of new developments still rolling out.
