Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on my experience with a unique racing game called Drive!Drive!Drive! By Choice Publishing and Different Cloth. I received a copy of the game from our friends at Choice Publishing but as with all of my reviews, this has no effect on my experience.
Drive!Drive!Drive is a unique racing game that takes inspiration from classic games like Wipeout or F-Zero. It uses its own engine called the Intelligent Stupidity Engine. As you might imagine, the game gets pretty crazy due to the other racers being quite dumb. However, the game prides itself in this insanity and it does make the game much more enjoyable.
Although the game utilizes a more minimalist art style with lots of gray and lighter colors it is still quite pretty and the courses are very well designed. You’ll often see giant rocks floating in the sky or rain/snow effects for the duration of the course. The lighting is also really good as well.
There’re multiple modes for you to choose from including arcade and, my least favorite, collection. The initial campaign has 50 courses over 10 different planets but there is also a bonus campaign that features 50 more courses with increased difficulty along with a level editor to create your own courses to share with other players.
The most unique part of this game is the way you play. Like most racing games you control one vehicle while the (rather stupid) AI controls the other vehicles. Where this game differs, however, is that you race on multiple courses at once and to complete it, you must switch between the courses using the d-pad to take control of different vehicles. You need to time your switching well to keep your position so there is strategy involved. You can also boost to gain speed and drift around corners during a race as well. There are some courses that don’t have railings to prevent you from driving off the course so you need to be careful on harder courses.
Overall, Drive!Drive!Drive is a game that I’m surprised isn’t more popular considering how fun it is to play and how absurd the game-play is. If you enjoy fast paced racing games or are looking for something new and unique to play in the racing genre I definitely recommend it. The ability to switch between multiple courses is really cool and it’s something that’s really fun to experience.
