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

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.

★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ - 6/10

Kurz umschrieben ist SkyDrift wohl am bestem mit "Mario Kart in Flugzeugen".
Es macht Laune mit den Flugzeugen den Strecken zu folgen,
auch wenn man an manchen Stellen zu eingeschränkt ist. Es gibt dann noch einen Survival Modus, in dem der Letze nach abgelaufener Zeit immer ausscheidet bis nur noch Einer übrig ist und den Speed Modus in dem man durch Ringe fliegen muss um auf Geschwindigkeit zu bleiben.
Der Multiplayer Modus ist sogut wie tot, man sollte schon Freunde haben mit denen man spielen kann. "Fremde" Spieler habe ich nie gefunden.
Aber für 4-5 Stunden Singleplayer Spass (wenn man überall Gold haben will auch entspechend länger)
ist es alle mal zu empfehlen. Ich habs im Sale gekauft und nicht bereut...

Ein wunderschönes Rennspiel, wo man mal Flieger benutzt, anstatt Autos, also mal was neues. Was ich leider etwas schade finde ist, dass im Multiplayer keiner online ist, sodass Multiplayer nur mit Freunden möglich ist. Aber alles in allem ist es ein schönes Spiel für zwischendurch mit schönen Fliegern mit unterschiedlichen Skins und schönen Strecken. Auch da hätte es mehr davon geben können. Trotzdem kann ich es für diesen Preis nur empfehlen.

Dem Spiel fehlt es leider an einigen Dingen:

1. Spielern - Wirklich NIEMAND spielt dieses Spiel online (wenn es überhaupt noch jemand spielt). Das macht diesen Modus komplett überflüssig.

2. Abwechslung - Jede Runde spielt sich fast gleich, nur die Map ist eine andere. Das wird nach 2 - 3 Runden ziemlich monoton. Es fehlt ein Reiz, um dieses Spiel nach 5 Runden noch weiter zu spielen, da man es danach eigentlich in- und auswendig kennt.

3. Eine gute KI - Das Spiel hat einen krassen Gummiband-Effekt (dagegen sieht jedes NfS alt aus!). Man kann so gut sein, wie man will --> man wird nicht 1.!
Man kann so schlecht sein, wie man will --> man wird nicht (unbedingt) letzter. Nervt auf Dauer!

4. Realismus - Man merkt, dass das Spiel auf Arcade getrimmt ist. Von mir aus in Ordnung, aber ein bisschen Realismus bei der Flugphysik oder der Steuerung (die sich im Messerflug um 90° dreht und damit das Steuern "aus dem Gefühl heraus" unmöglich macht) hätte dem Spiel nicht geschadet!

Fazit: Meiner Meinung nach lohnt sich das Spiel (und auch die DLCs) nicht. Abgesehen davon ist es auch relativ schnell durchgespielt.

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!
