Drift City, now owned by Games Campus is a Cell Shaded Online racing game combined with RPG elements. Its unique play style gives it variety while still maintaining the racing game aspect. Drift City is also known as Skid Rush in Korea. The game offers a lot of unique content, some of which are: Leveling up your character, customizing vehicles, racing with other players, doing missions, and doing quests, a delivery service, instances and much more.
Drift City, unlike most MMO racing games, has a story. You are in the future and you have no oil. You magically find a new island with this amazing resource on it. It's called... Mittron! This new resource powers every mode of transportation. You try it out in a car and it you realize, that its pure steroids for your car. Your car is running faster, cleaner and longer! The world leaders are taking advantage of this resource and decide to start importing it.
The graphics are amazing. They are very different from the best selling racing games like Gran Turismo or Need for speed. They have more of a cartoon feel to them rather than a realistic feel. You can easily run Drift City on almost any computer. The only complaint for graphics I might have is the time change in the game. It goes from day to night in nothing.
The gameplay is easy to get use to. There is a lot of ways to earn Mittron (the currency in Drift City) and XP which insures that you will always have something to do. When I started this game, I thought it be a "Do as many races as you can in a day" kind of game but I was proven wrong. You can drive around in the city getting quests from different stations. You also get hired as a Delivery Person early in the game. Each delivery you make gives you XP and Mittron. Some deliveries are actually very challenging. You have a time limit and sometimes even a crash limit. If you crash more than a certain number of times, you fail the mission.
Drift City has a decent RPG side to it. It is more of a single player mode but still very enjoyable. There is a huge world outside of the tiny battle dome you start in. The world has traffic, street lights and even some places you can access. Around the city there are 4 stations. Each one has different missions and objectives you have to complete. Some are a breeze while some are extremely difficult to get a gold medal on.
In conclusion, Drift City is an awesome game if you like an easy to play game. If you are looking for an extremely competitive game, Drift City is not for you. Its unique RPG elements give it a different feel from normal Racing Games. The graphics are not super realistic and detailed but are fun and appealing. If you are looking to kill some time and relax, Drift City is the perfect game for you.
