Driift Mania

This Friday’s WiiWare releases included both Driift Mania (800 points) and Tales of Monkey Island (1000 points). It just so happened that I had exactly 800 points left in my account, and I fondly remember playing Super Off Road on my Amiga 500 – so I just had to buy Driift Mania (but don’t worry, I will buy Tales of Monkey Island later).

The doesn’t disappoint. It takes some time to get used to the way drifting works, but it is easily playable from the second the first race starts. There is a definite focus on multiplayer racing (up to 8 players), but for many of the different multiplayer games the computer can take over when you don’t have any friends to play with. Unfortunately there is no way to play against friends online.

I really miss having weapons (like in Super Cars) but this is a great game when you have a few minutes to kill.
