From big bosses and swarms of enemies to screens filled with bullets and explosions, Drifting Lands offers everything fans expect from the side scrolling shooter genre. However, it goes one step further by also merging it with some action-RPG elements that will keep you coming back for more in a bid to customize your ship to the max. It starts out a little slow, but thanks to multiple difficulty grades, the intensity of the action quickly ramps up. Anyone with an itchy trigger finger looking for a shooter that has a bit more replay value than usual shouldn’t at the very least try out the free demo.
Gameplay: A little overwhelming at times, but at least you are eased into things quite gently.
Graphics: Detailed and colorful, especially for a side scrolling shooter, but very few truly jaw-dropping set pieces.
Sound: The sound effects lack a little punch, but the soundtrack is as varied as it is rocking
