Power Drift reviews

Zero Magazine Issue 3 (1990) - "Powerdrift is graphically fab. But it lacks one thing - gameplay. So much time has been spent trying to cram in everything from the coin-op, that this important little element appears to have been completely forgotten. As a result, the track jerks towards you in such a way as to make things confusing. A particularly sharp oncoming right-hand bend (for instance) can't really be made out until you hit it, whereupon it's a question of luck as to whether or not your joystick is being held in the right position to get you round before crashing. Completing tracks, especially the later ones, is more a test of memory than driving skills"
