    A poor game through and through. It's driving mechanic fails in most every way, and being that it's centered around your ability to properly drift, the game simply doesn't work very well.
  2. Only for the hardcore of racing fans or if you find it for $10. At least then you won’t feel completely cheated.

    It's a budget title plain and simple, and as such it slacks on nearly every aspect. With about three million PS2 racing games and counting -- including Gran Turismo 4 as a $20 Greatest Hit title -- TXR Drift is about as essential as a two-foot high spoiler on the back of your mom's minivan.

    I think this game really captures the way drifting began, and actually it isn't really drifting it's touge which is racing by using drifting. Also contrary to some belief drifting can be the fastest way around a corner if you do it right. But enough about the expinations this game does lack alittle in physics but it's coverage of cars and different types of races make it an awesome game to any initial d fan. Full Review »

    I didnt like the long loding screens. Somtimes when I"m in the midddle of a race the sound of the engine will cut off making me miss a shift. Also the tire noise and the noise from when you hit a wall will keep going after it has happened. Besides that it is a prety fun game. One other thing is that I would have liked to customs cars outside of the carrer mode. Full Review »

    This game is complicated but if you ever tried to slide sideways thru a turn at 50-60 miles per hour in real life and tried to make it thru the turn without hitting a wall, you know that it really is a hard task. Tokyo Xtreme Drift takes a bit of getting used too but as of yet it may be the closes thing to drifting in a video game that I have experienced. The graphics are pretty accurate, gameplay is slow, control is accurate, and vehicle physics are almost life like. I enjoy this game being that it is what it is, a street racing and drift game.
