Review | Drive to Hell

When you think of first person shooters, you tend to think of hulking space marines barreling down a corridor. When you think of platformers, mascots of all different colors and sizes spring to mind. When you think of shoot-em-ups like Drive To Hell, convention would make you visualize either airplanes or anime girls, depending on your mood at the time.
