Sonic Drift (ソニックドリフト, Sonikku Dorifuto) is a kart racing video game released in Japan only for the Game Gear on March 18, 1994. The Sonic Drift games were based on the gameplay of 1988 arcade game Power Drift, but with characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Reception[edit | edit source]
Reception for Sonic Drift have been mixed. On release, Famicom Tsūshin scored the game a 19 out of 40. GameSpot described the game as "basically unplayable because of poor handling and a really short horizon". Several critics compared the games to Super Mario Kart, but Sega's Drift series of kart racers in fact predates Super Mario Kart by a few years, starting with the arcade game Power Drift in 1988.
