The thrill of racing is more or less accurately represented in most car games. Games like GRID, Forza, and Burnout all convey the speed and action of heated, ultra-competitive races. Something that isn’t usually well-represented though, is drifting. In most games, drifting mechanics are light and simple to engage, almost like they are an afterthought.
If drifting brings you joy as it does to most people in the racing community, then these games’ implementation of the act just isn’t good enough. All hope is not lost though, Drift Hunters is here to save the day.
Drift Hunters is an in-depth, realistic drifting simulator that is super accessible, and super fun. If you’re interested in getting into this awesome car game, here are a few of the things that make it a great option.
The secret sauce for Drift Hunters’ realistic drifting experience is its physics-based gameplay mechanics. Each car in the game has its own unique handling profile, which results in each car needing its own approach for masterful drifting.
Regardless of the car you’re in, it will take a little while for you to adjust to its drifting capabilities. But once you get a feel for the physics and what is required to drift successfully, the sense of satisfaction you’ll feel is unmatched.
Drift Hunters has 10 unique tracks to learn and explore. Each one is set in an interesting location full of lush detail and has plenty of challenging features for you to master. Sharp turns, daring straightaways, and plenty of drifting opportunities abound.
Even better, because of the physics-based gameplay, each track is a brand new challenge when you hop into a new car. The same tactics you had in one car will most likely not work in another, so you’ll need to adjust.
Speaking of new cars, Drift Hunters has over 25 of them for you to unlock, upgrade, and customize. Each car is carefully modeled after a real-life sports car and then rendered in meticulous detail.
If you want to squeeze even more performance out of your ride, there are several categories of parts that can be purchased and upgraded. This is a great way to breathe new life into a favorite car that might have become obsolete after a recent unlock. If you’re bored with the stock paint job, you can choose between four types of paint (Matte, Metallic, Glossy, and Chrome) and just about any color you can imagine to apply to your ride.
