Then there is the Rest Area which, although it looks attractive, looks empty and doesn’t have any exciting features, at least while I’m playing.

The three features above are additional features. It means you can still enjoy Speed ​​Drifters alone. Unfortunately there is one more feature that I think is quite annoying, namely music.

Music in a racing game is one of the elements that enhances the gaming experience. In games like like a series Need for Speedmusic rock, metal, or EDM is perfect for racing full of high adrenaline. In games like Mario Kart, you will get music that is upbeat or at least in accordance with the feel of the track. Temporary Speed ​​Drifters actually give mood which is not appropriate.

Trust me, listen to the song I Won’t Go Home Without You from Maroon 5 when you’re racing at top speed is a strange experience.

Luckily this problem can be solved easily with updates which includes a new song. Let’s hope this game gets new songs that are suitable, whether it’s an original song or a popular song. While waiting, you can listen to songs from other devices to get a more optimal playing experience.



Overall, Speed ​​Drifter is a fun game for those of you looking for games that can be played quickly in about two to three minutes.
