Your Sinclair (Dec, 1991)
[Budget re-release] The arcade version of Power Drift bucked like a particularly peeved, hydraulic bronco and it was a stomach-churning experience. Its roller-coaster racing circuits were positively evil and while this conversion may not have the graphic grace of the arcade, it's hot-wired the gameplay, driven it away and parked all 25 tracks onto tape. All in one load! Hurrah!

If you don't know about Power Drift you have just returned from a month holiday on Jupiter. I mean, it's been a big hit in the arcades, it's been emblazoned on our front cover, and we've even given you an exclusive level as a playable demo! (Hello, I've just returned from a three month holiday on Jupiter! Reader's voice) Erm, right! Power Drift is a conversion of the Sega arcade hit of the same name. It's a rolling road racing game in which you race a sort of dune buggy against 12 other competitors on different courses. There are five main courses to choose from and then five stages to each course, so in effect you've got 20-odd different tracks! Oh, and it's been programmed by the people responsible for WEC Le Mans so you won't be surprised to hear that it's one slick and smooth-scrolling racing game.

So, Power Drift wins in the end. It's playability wins through over some dodgy features. A triumph over adversity.
