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.

An underrated gem. I prefer playing campaign/solo, so the lack of multiplayer servers doesn't bother me that much. As some have mentioned, the DLCs should just have been part of the base game, but besides that little marketing snafu, this is one heckuva fun race (with power-ups ala Mario Kart). If you see it on sale, grab it, but make sure you have a controller ready. :)

One of the best Flight Simulation with Controller support. I played with my XBOX 360 Controller on my PC.
Worked like Charm. I would like to rate it as 9/10. There are few races which are bit difficult and online players are rare to find and play to unlock last aircraft otherwise one of best flight and combat simulation.

This is a shoot / racing game only.. with planes.... yeah ... how cool is that ??

It really is a game that requires some practice.
Game then also looks really great.
Cool background music that completes it all.
Controls are very nice only I recommend a Xbox 360 Controller.

Different planes to unlock.
There are no upgrades possible in this game.
So it will really how good you become.

I find this game a great experience.
And if you think racing games like this that you should definitely try.

SkyDrift was a very positive surprise for me.

I bought the game for multiplayer with my kids and ended playing through the single player campaign. The game is a bit like the old Mario Racing, only with planes. It is extremely funny to play online with your friends. Additional copies of the game required, there is no split screen mode. I also enjoyed the good graphics and even bought the DLC with the new planes when it was on sale.

Highly recommended if you look for a casual racer.

Meh. This game is kinda fun but gets real old after about ten minutes. The "campaign" is a series of seven stages with a half dozen races each, except it recycles the same four maps over and over again so you've pretty much seen the whole game by the time you beat the first stage. The multiplayer deathmatch was a good idea except there's never anybody online to play against. Worth picking up a few copies for you and some friends if it's on a good steam sale I guess.

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.

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.

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 hidden-gem of an arcade style throwback combat-racer game. It reminds me of Diddy Kong Racing from back in the day.

This game is a simple and fun plane racing game where you collect power-ups like shields or missiles to launch at your enemies to help you win the race. It’s simple and arcade like, and as such don't expect it to feel like you’re flying a plane for real. It’s short and pretty easy to beat the "campaign." You unlock new levels and new planes as you play, but there is very little variance to be honest; but the game is short enough that it doesn't really matter much. By the time you get bored you have beaten the game.

The multiplayer exists and worked when I played it, but it wasn't very populated, so I recommend finding a friend or two who wants to play with you. If you play online with a friend for a bit, you will probably be surprised to see randoms drop into your game from time to time... and if you play on a weekend you may even wind up with a full lobby.

I would highly recommend a controller, or maybe a joystick or something... but not a K+M.

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!

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. Well worth spending 2 or 3 dollars during a sale.

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.
