Critic Reviews for Absolute Drift: Zen Edition
Absolute Drift is the kind of game that can quite easily provide a good hour or so worth of entertainment on a rainy day. Our fear with this one, however, is that the learning curve is so brutally steep, it may put you off before you even properly get into it. If you do manage to power through, though, it’s a genuinely relaxing, satisfying experience. It’s just a shame the game is hampered by poor design choices and crippling technical issues.
Absolute Drift: Zen Edition is a peaceful driving game crafted to focus on control, precision and challenging yourself.
Absolute Drift: Zen Edition is a cozy, tranquil game with a single mission: to provide the perfect experience to facilitate the player's growth in skill. It succeeds flawlessly in this mission but could still use a bit more content for those who don't want to dedicate themselves to becoming drift masters on the same few tracks.
Often contrasting a white background with bright block objects, there could not have been a better mix for a game all about avoiding things
Overall, Absolute Drift is a great game. Offering a wealth of content to enjoy at a low price of $12 without any grinding or in-app purchases, Absolute Drift is a game you can play and have great fun. Sure, it doesn’t have the simulation physics you would expect in a AAA, but the point here is that it doesn’t need them. The physics can be adjusted to by everyone but will take time master and that’s what’s so great about this game.
It's really sad that the learning curve is so massive that it acts like a wall that keeps most players from enjoying this. It's sad, because those who'll persevere, and manage to reach that 'Zen' level of razor-sharp precision, are the only ones who can really understand how exciting Absolute Drift can be. That being said, when a game is all about drifting, the fun factor won't last for long.
Bet you never thought you’d feel this peaceful on a racetrack, huh?
