More of an arcade experience than an authentic racer, Power Drift is hellishly playable.
Chris Butler's conversion of the Sega coin-op is a major technical achievement.
The undulating road movement is incredibly smooth with uge (and detailed) side
graphics whizzing past at an alarming rate.
It's not exactly realistic - nor is the simple control of your car - but a real
rollercoaster ride as your roar round bends and jump up ramps.
A total of 25 terrifically turtouos tracks, all containted in a single load, ensures
a strong challenge to prolong the instant compulsion.
