I really enjoyed SkyDrift. The best way to describe it is Mario Kart with fighter planes. The single player mode has six tracks (12 if you count reverse mode) and three race types: (1) power (like Mario Kart - race around the track and collect power-ups that allow you to shoot at your competitors); (2) survivor (same as power, but instead of a fixed number of laps the player in last place gets eliminated every 30 seconds or so); and (3) speed (power-ups are replaced by boost rings that increase the speed and difficulty of racing around the course). The game mixes and matches these three play types and the 6/12 tracks with varying levels of AI difficulty to create a single player campaign consisting of about 40 events, and for each event you can choose between about 10 planes with varying specs (some are faster, some are more maneuverable, etc). The tracks are spectacular and the controls and overall gameplay are also great.

With respect to single player mode, my only complaints are that there are only 6 tracks and the "campaign" is very loosely put together. There's no story, you don't even need to finish first in an event to progress to the next, and by the time you've completed the first 10 or so of the campaign races you've already seen all six tracks.

With respect to multiplayer, there doesn't seem to be much of an online community left, but you can play with friends that also have the game.

Highly recommended!

It's like Mario Kart, but with planes. Wait, didn't they do this with Diddy Kong Racing? Well, I guess it's Diddy Kong Racing, with only planes, limited content, and clap trap's voice actor. It's graphics are very smooth, and the controls are extremely nice. I hit more walls than I care to count, but it's still a lot of fun. I wish it's community was larger. I think I've played against 2 other people before. The only major downside to this game is, it's limited selection of maps. You can do them forward, or backwards. This feels like one of those arcade games you'd find in a theator with those racing jet-skis', but with planes. I don't think the devs ever expected anyone to actually play this game for as long as I have, so maybe the lack of content is a lack of player base interest? *Slams fist on table,* I demand more maps to race on, and a broader internet community!

This game is quite nice to play, at first glance it might seem simple but it does have quite much depth once you understand a bit more. Different game modes require a bit different tactics being in the lead in power races is not always easy as your opponents will shoot you while in the lead. Multiplayer can be played in the base game but bying the DLCs will give you Deathmatch and Team deathmatch plus some additional planes to fly with. The game suffers from lack of players now in the year 2016 but there are some communities and steam groups where you can find players even now. The graphics are perfectly fine and the game runs very well on a bit older hardware. All in all a very balanced game for casual gaming, the in-game achievements are also quite challenging to collect and the AI are quite challenging as well. If you can find it on sales I do recommend you check it out.

Very fun concept, but for a three-dimensional racing game I expect to be able to fully move in three dimensions. Instead, if you stray too far from the "track" you're pushed back on it - and crash, because you weren't planning to move like that. Very frustrating.

Very addicting arcade flying game with a surprising amount of depth that will reveal itself gradually once you start putting more hours into the game.

Early game can be very off putting as gameplay seems so hard. Especially if you are crazy enough to try Normal/Hard difficulties. AI will leave you in the dust as you keep crashing. Speed racing especially can be a big 'nope' moment for many.

But as you learn the levels - which there are not that many - then the differences between planes and tactics in levels. not to mention aerial acrobatic/low flying comes into play.

Multiplayer games are a blast. You only need 2 players of equal skill and you got yourself very tight races. Every single time. You will need to learn to master those counter measures and offensive weapons.

Game is strong on singleplayer too. Just do the campaign on Easy or normal and then add some difficulty. Good luck trying to 100% all achievements.


ps. get the Premium Airplane pack. it is so cheap and adds useful planes to the game.

Nice game, it does a good job being fun, and accepts xbox 360 controller input as well as joystick (i have a thrustmaster 16000m) easy to set the keys and the tracks are fun and challenging.

What i dont understand is that there is no language setting! im in Mexico, but play all my games in English, and i just cant change the ingame language unless i make changes to my operating system, never seen that before i think...

Game is enjoyable, a plane racing game with powerups and a bunch of different planes with different stats.

Probably one of the best racing games I ever played.
Graphics are amazing, everything is fast, and the addition of power-ups to the game only makes it more interesting.
The only problem is that on the last Levels the game is too hard. Medium difficult looks like Impossible (I still can't beat the last race in 1st place - got 2nd only), the AI is a pain.
Overall it is a good game, kinda short and the replay vallue is good. Too bad the community is dead, cause I can't complete the online achievements.

another great game.
Great graphics, good diversity of planes and game modes (from just normal racing to shoot-your-opponent modes), and great SPEED FEELING!! :D
sometimes you just have to turn off your brain and just let your eyes and fingers take command of the plane because if you think you will find yourself hunging the wall :D

You can really have fun with this game. It is just that: really fun! you enter steam to have fun for a few minutes and you do just that. You create some rivalries in the process with some AI pilots (there is even one named Manuel, portuguese name) which is so funny and annoying. Because they are ALWAYS that guy taking you out of 1st position on getting back at a missile you sent to fetch them....

It is not that easy to finish in the highest difficulty. Which is good. It is possible, but will take some retries.

Really fun, as a game should be, great speed simulation.

9/10

Skydrift, davvero un bel gioco poco pubblicizzato ai suoi tempi che include divertimento, grafica buona, longevità medio e tanto ma tanto divertimento grazie alla sua meccanica semplice ma mai facile da gestire, grazie anche alla complessità degli scenari (giocato con il pad 360 si da il meglio).
Davvero un titolo da consigliare agli amanti delle corse pazze, delle acrobazie e degli aerei :)

Good racer with interesting ideas. But single player gets repetitive quickly, it lacks replayability and not having a local multiplayer mode really kills it. If it had a split screen mode, I would probably recommend it.

Excellent plane racer which very much reminded me of the flying parts of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The controls are pretty tight, using a 360 pad was absolutely perfect. And the weapon and boost mechanics are pretty fun. Definitely recommend.

Sfrecciare a tutta velocità attraverso grotte, insenature e relitti di navi affondate mentre, armati fino ai denti, si cerca di abbattere gli avversari in ogni modo possibile e di arrivare interi al traguardo. Ecco, questo è il modo più semplice per riassumere Skydrift.
Skydrift è un indie game dannatamente divertente al punto da poter essere considerato il Mario Kart dei cieli portato su PC e console di vecchia generazione.

Presentazione generale:
Il gioco uscì via Steam, PSN e Xbox live il 21 novembre 2011, sviluppato da Digital Reality.
Il concept alla base del gioco è semplicissimo: superare a tutti i costi gli avversari e tagliare il traguardo per primi sfruttando i power up sparsi per il percorso di gara.
Il sistema di guida è spiccatamente arcade e vi permetterà di effettuare improbabili virate o planate nei luoghi più impensabili, trasmettendo sempre una buona sensazione di velocità.
Unica modalità disponibile per le partite in solitaria è la carriera, suddivisa in sette campionati composti a loro volta da più gare di difficoltà crescente. I percorsi che vi ritroverete a percorrere saranno molto vari e spazieranno da canyon rocciosi a lussureggianti spiagge, senza dimenticare i picchi innevati con le loro insidiose caverne. Tuttavia, la gare scorrono fin troppo rapidamente portando la carriera alla propria conclusione nel giro di tre o quattro ore di gioco al massimo, un po' poco se si pensa che non vi sono altre modalità oltre a quella competitiva online che è praticamente deserta, infatti è quasi impossibile trovare giocatori con cui giocare in tempi accettabili.

Gameplay:
Tre sono le diverse tipologie di gara presenti nel gioco: potenza, velocità e survivor.
Nelle gare di potenza l'obiettivo sarà quello di tagliare per primi il traguardo sfruttando i diversi power up disseminati lungo il tracciato per abbattere gli avversari o per proteggersi dai loro attacchi.
La gara di velocità invece sostituirà i potenziamenti con una serie di anelli da attraversare per ottenere un considerevole boost in termine di accelerazione, necessario per concludere la gara in testa.
La tipologia survivor infine si presenta molto similmente a quella denominata potenza, con l'assenza però di un numero di giri prestabilito da completare. Lo scopo di questo tipo di competizione consiste bensì nell'evitare di restare ultimi, in quanto ad ogni determinato intervallo di tempo questo verrà eliminato dalla corsa. Ovviamente è scontato dire che un approccio ben bilanciato tra attacco e difesa è essenziale per evitare di ritrovarsi ad occupare l'ultima posizione a pochi secondi dallo scadere del timer.

La quantità di mezzi da pilotare è davvero varia, ogni aereo si distingue dagli altri per peculiarità e difetti. Per invogliare a provare tutti gli aerei disponibili, inoltre, è possibile sbloccare diverse skin tramite il completamento di obiettivi specifici per ogni modello ma comunque completabili senza problemi.

Fulcro del gioco, oltre alla corsa, sono anche i combattimenti aerei e, ovviamente, non potevano mancare gli armamenti di distruzione più classici che si possono suddividere in due gruppi: difensivi e offensivi.
Difensivi: la riparazione del mezzo (che riparerà il nostro aereo se danneggiato) e lo scudo (che assorbirà parte dei danni che ci verranno inflitti)
Offensivi: i missili a ricerca di calore (missili che una volta agganciati a un mezzo avversario lo inseguiranno fino a colpirlo), la mitragliatrice (semplice mitragliatrice che riempirà di piombo il povero malcapitato che troveremo davanti a noi) e la mina (che verrà rilasciata dalla coda del nostro aereo ed esploderà a contatto con un avversario). Infine esiste anche un power up che sta in mezzo: il campo elettrico, che rilascia una scarica di energia elettrica dal nostro aereo che rallenterà quelli avversari. Questo potenziamento si può utilizzare sia per difendersi che per attaccare.
Ognuno di questi power up può essere potenziato semplicemente ottenendone uno dello stesso tipo durante la corsa. Con i power up si può scegliere se utilizzarli o convertirli in turbo, un altro modo per ottenere turbo è effettuare acrobazie folli e pericolose.

Conclusioni:

Punti POSITIVI: sistema di volo semplice e immediato, grande varietà di aeroplani

Punti NEGATIVI: campagna troppo breve, scarsa varietà di modalità di gioco, i limiti del mondo: appena si supera anche per sbaglio la quota massima consentita il vostro aereo verrà spinto a forza nella direzione prestabilita, spesso facendovi impattare contro lo scenario o facendovi perdere molti secondi preziosi

Prezzo: questo gioco l’ho comprato su un sito di key a prezzi stracciati alla cifra di $2,85 ovvero l’equivalente di quasi €2,10

Consiglio all’acquisto: io lo consiglierei ai giocatori di passione, a chi non si lamenta di una grafica un po’ passata o di un gameplay alla lunga monotono. Comunque rimane un titolo valido ad un prezzo giusto adatto a tutti.

Skydrift is an indie plane racer for PS3, 360 and Windows by Digital Reality.

Menu:
A full menu is available to tweak with as you wish. For an indie game there are plenty of graphics settings incase you can't already run it at 60fps. Audio sliders are good to go. Menu is intended for console and so it works better with controller. Tutorials are in text form and are easy to read through.

Controls:
There is full controller and keyboard support with keyboard being rebindable. Controller is recommended to play and feels better. Keyboard feels a bit out of place especially on default.

Ingame:
Flying through campaign and multiplayer with campaign actually posing a challenge. The game looks great, you'll never see a bad texture with the speed you're going at and so my frames never dropped below 60. There are 3 game modes in campaign and 5 in multiplayer these are speed race, power race and survival with multiplayer adding deathmatch and team deathmatch to the line. All planes have different attributes for speed, acceleration, armour and more.
While going through the campaign you will also unlock extra skins for your planes. When the competition is far ahead it's difficult to catch up and going outside of the intended path will push you back. Tricks will earn you boost power and in power race you can turn in a power like rockets, machine gun and shields for extra boost.

Multiplayer:
You can play online against others and invite your friends which is ofcourse the best way.
Sadly to say nobody is playing the multiplayer so you need friends who own the game.
I was lucky enough to have these and can say that multiplayer is strong and fun.

Achievements:
Steam has a few achievements to unlock mostly done through campaign. The game also has in-game achievements in the form of medals.

DLC:
There are 2 pieces of DLC available. First the airplane pack which adds 3 awesome planes to the selection. Second is a multiplayer pack that adds a few arena maps and weather conditions.

Conclusion:
Skydrift is an action packed game and very enjoyable. For multiplayer you'll need friends who own the game. Great fun will be had! DLC is also up for debate and I would say maybe on a sale.

What a surprise!
This is an extremely fun arcade racer with boost, powerups and unlockable stuff.
The graphics are beautiful, the landscape is stunning, the entire game is fantastic!
This game is similar to BLUR, but with airplanes.
Don't worry, it's not easy at all, it's challenging even at the first few maps!
This game is underrated and overlooked by any means.
WORTH IT!
The only flaw however: no split-screen 2 player mode.

Extremely fun game, got it on sale and don't regret it, would have payed more.

Haven't even tried multiplayer yet and I can say it's one of the most fun games I've played in a while. There's an element of adrenaline, chaos, split-second decisions, not even good racing games are as cool as this. The game looks and sounds good, the planes have a degree of customisation (paint) and you have enough planes to choose from. The combat system is good as well, making it easier for new players to adapt rather than making it difficult to shoot stuff. Arcade is the largest factor of this game, simulation not so much, and good for it.

You do need some time to adapt, won't be pro on the first tries, but there's no way you're not gonna enjoy this even a little bit. It might not be addictive, grant it, but that's not a bad thing; this is the sort of game you keep in your library and now and then come back to, because it's gonna be fun anytime.

PS: Joystick or at least controller, keyboard won't be as good.

Skydrift is a fun and fast arcade style combat-racer with planes. It does a lot of things good but also has some problems too.

The good:
  • Gameplay is fast even down to the load times. You can finish a race in 3-4 minutes, so it's a perfect pick up and play game.
  • The weapons are basic, but fun to use. Machine guns, homing missiles, mines and Area-Stun shock.
  • Opponents are challenging, but not unfairly so. I'm not sure if the AI has rubber-banding or not - but they do keep up.
  • The tracks are cool with open spaces and small tunnels. Driving through small tricky spaces are awarded with boost.
  • A few different game modes like the basic death race, elimination and speed race.
  • Different planes to unlock and choose from with different stats, not a crazy amount of variation as they basically handle pretty much the same anyway. Every plane has 4 different skins to unlock and choose from.
  • The campaign is lengthy enough, nothing spectacular: No story or real progression, just pick your plane and finish the next race and earn more plane unlocks and skins.
  • Has controller support for Xbox-compatible controllers and Joysticks.

The bad:
  • Very few tracks. Fortunately, they are good and look different from one another. They do reverse the tracks in some races to give it a bit of a spin. Also in some races the scenery starts exploding and falling apart and adding hazards to the race.
  • This one is a common problem with flying racing-games. As flying gives you so much freedom in all directions it's a bit difficult to lay out a track. This game handles it fairly well in most places: the tracks are designed to funnel you in a certain direction and arrows guide you in the right direction and creates borders. But sometimes there are obstacles that fall just in the line of that funnel and an invisble wall forcibly guides you in the right direction resulting in annoying crashes.
  • There IS multiplayer. But it's a ghost town. No-one playing. This can't really be faulted on the game itself. But just a heads up for those looking to play online.
  • Has Xbox controller support - but the screen icons do not change from the keyboard layout. You can view the controls from the options however.

This game is really, really fun. Imagine Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, except in this game you're always flying. Give this one a chance, because it's worth looking into and playing!

REVIEW
Skydrift is a hidden-gem of an combat-racer game involving what feel like go-kart versions of airplanes. It reminds me of Diddy Kong Racing from back in the day, (which was like Mario Kart but with planes). The game is a lot of fun, especially in multiplayer. If you’re looking for some simple-pleasure arcade action, you probably want to check this out.

At the core it is a racing game, so your objective is always to come in first. As you buzz around, you collect power-ups (like protective shields for your plane or missiles to launch at your enemies) which will help you win the race. It’s simple and arcade like, and as such don't expect it to feel anything like you’re flying a plane for real. But it is easy to get the hang of, and is a nice casual experience. That said, I highly recommend using a controller, because it is much more natural than a keyboard & mouse.

It is also noticeable that the graphics are pretty nice. They aren’t anything amazing, but for a game that is clearly focused on gameplay as a selling point, I thought the graphics were an excellent bonus. I mean: if you’re going to blow your opponents out of the sky while doing a barrel-roll through a hollow stone circle, it doesn’t hurt if it looks pretty cool too.

It’s pretty easy to beat the "campaign," leading to the game feeling somewhat short. You unlock new maps and new planes as you play through, but there is very little noticeable variance to be honest; regardless, the game is short enough that it doesn't really matter much. By the time you start to become bored, you will have beaten it.

The multiplayer is a whole different ballgame. The game is much more exciting to play against other people. When I played I was able to find some games, but it wasn't very populated. If you can find some people who want to meet up, that is probably your best bet. I did it a few times on the weekends and a few random people jumped in too and we wound up with full games. That was fun, but I wouldn’t count on that being the standard.

Anyway, Skydrift is definitely a fun game. If you think you would like what it offers, it is worth your consideration. Doubly so if you have a couple of friends to play with.

How this game isnt a hit is beyond me. The controls are tight and very responsive, the planes have weight and the combat is oh so satisfying. I could see this in an arcade machine sucking up all of my money. This is one game easily worth full price.

The Good:

* Pick-up-and-play gameplay works well
* Well-balanced combat and plane variety
* Entertaining difficulty (not too hard or easy)
* Well worth the price

The Bad:

* Bad graphics for its time
* Recycled textures
* Physics engine is poor
* No plane customisation
* The power-ups could be rebalanced

Bottom line:

Good for a quick ten-minute gaming session when not in the mood for something more serious. Certainly worth spending 2 or 3 USD on during a sale.

Mario Kart meets Waverace 64, in the sky. Loads of fun, beautiful, sounds great. Runs well on my low-mid end PC while still looking gorgeous. Can't seem to get into an online match, but it's worth it just for the single player.
