Filtered Thoughts
     I have not played The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces, but I have read some good opinions and reviews about the game, and the Amazon.com customer reviews seem to confirm the positive consumer reception.  If you are not familiar with The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces, the video below gives you a quick glimpse at how the game's story is told, and shows off some flying as well:

     I have been tracking/watching The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces data for over a year now.  Each week I would check it and hope to see it debut, but it just decided to take its time and crawl onto the Nintendo Channel...so perhaps the title is a little misleading!
     Considering the game did debut though is definitely a positive, and shows at least some Wii owners are still playing it.

     Have any of you played The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces, and if so, what do you think about the game?  Is it a Wii game you would recommend to other Wii owners looking for a flight simulator game?

  1. I rather enjoyed the game and wrote a review of it awhile back. If definitely has a more arcade like feel to it with the action aerial type maneuvers that made it fast paced. It removed that constant loop de-loop flying in circle mechanic found in most flying games.

    The Wii controls take some getting used to, but overal for $19.99 I would say buy it!

  2. Nice post - and good comments by Brad - I haven't actually read or really heard anything at all about this game, but it does sound fairly cool. :)

  3. @Brad J. (The Butcher):
    Do you remember if the 8.5 hours averaged reported, is about how long it took you to complete the game?
    For some reason, I thought I had read it was a good 10-15 hours, or even a little longer.

    So many games, so few are advertised. I really wonder how well advertising helps, because all the big games advertise, and even a smaller WiiWare title had some internet ads running at one point, and it was one of the fastest debuting WiiWare games...perhaps I should write about it.

    Thank you both for the comments/feedback!

  4. @chalgyr - Here's my review if you care to learn more! http://whoburnedmytoast.blogspot.com/2010/02/review-sky-crawlers-innocent-aces.html

    @Coffee, yes advertising would work. Especially in the casual crowd.

  5. @Coffee, About 11.5 hrs total playtime. I did spend a good 30 mins watching replays however.

  6. @Brad J.:
    Thanks for the feedback! I thought it was a 10-15 hour game, depending on skills(or lack thereof!).


Keep the comments clean. Rated "E" for Everyone. :)
