    The aerial kart gameplay of SkyDrift is a blast. The basic gameplay and controls are so perfect. The right stick to do hard turns is genius and I am surprised nobody thought of it before. The problem with SkyDrift is the lack of maps. Single player has a lot of levels to beat but it is the same maps (I think 4) over and over again and doing the map in reverse doesn't create that much of difference. I got tired of playing it after about 30 races as I was sure I wasn't seeing anything new and just facing tougher and tougher opponents. It is sad because shooting down opponents is such a blast. Online is fun on the standard race however the speed races keep coming up in rotation and those are boring. The online interface is confusing. I am not sure if there is a way to only play the standard race. There is some DLC for a new multi-player mode but it seems like a waste of money because 5 people will probably buy it. They should just patch this game with more maps and it would be a 10. Overall I think this game is worth buying as there isn't much else like this. If you like Mario Kart but you think it would be cooler if it was in planes, this is your game. Full Review »

    A half-decent, relatively fun experience. Unlocking everything is an overly-arduous and time-consuming task, but even without everything, it's an okay budget game. Full Review »
