A well made flight sim game but nothing spectacular
24 May 2011
Excerpt: AeroWings is a flight sim game that attempts to replicate the feel and realistic control of a jet plane. AeroWings is a little different from most console flight sims in that you're the game involves no combat or weaponry of any description. There are no combat missions, no enemy planes, vehicles, buildings to destroy, no bombs to drop or missiles to fire. Here's how it breaks down.
Pros: Good realism and a number of different stages and planes
Excerpt: STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAMING HELL!!!!I hope none of you EVER get near this game! When I got it I thought "Oh yeah cool I get to fly around in this plane doing all these cool stunts." Boy, was I wrong. This game was very poorly made and the flight controls stress you up so much you want to destroy your Dreamcast. You also have to keep in mind the sounds! Oh My GOD!!!!
Pros: The graphics are good
Cons: Boring as hell, all you do is fly around, very limited gameplay
Excerpt: I bought this game because I had played just about every other title that had been released for the Dreamcast and always liked flight sims. I really wish I was an epinion member back then to keep me from making such a terrible purchasing mistake. Quickly thumbing through the manual I realized there wasn't anything that said "missles" or "machine guns". Who would make a game without these things? Crave Entertainment, that's who.
Excerpt: I think this game is really boring, i normally enjoy flite-sims, but this has nothing to it, it has a couple of easy tests to do and then you just fly around doing nothing, its really boring. it could of been so much better,ie, more to do, like fly in and out of tight objects, or it would of been really cool if you could do some stunts(apart from loop and barrel role) in the game, which woulg get you more points, but it doesnt have anything like that, one good thing is...
Excerpt: Aero wings is a very graphical, very hard flight sim for the dreamcast. You have to pass a series of tests before you can become a member of blue impulse, a japanese flying group. After completing these ten missions, a further ten open up where you fly with a squadron doing amazing manourevers. The game has 4 player mode which is pretty diffilcult to do, but give it time and it will come to you. There are over 12 planes that are unique in flight and handling.
Excerpt: Aerowings looks fine ,really pretty impressive the first few times, though after investing a few hours it becomes clear that there isn't much to the game at all, it almost feels like a software 'toy'. There is a structure to the game of course , you have to complete a set of traning manouvers to the satisfaction of a rather stern tutor. These tasks becomr progesseivly moere diifficult as you fly with the Japanese 'Blue Impulse' team (like our Red Arrows).
Summary: Aerowings ist eine der wenigen Flugsimulationen der Dreamcast. Anders als bei z.B. Deadly Skies beschränkt sich das Spiel hier allerdings auf flugtechnische Aufgaben. Soll heißen, dass man mit einem unbewaffneten Flugzeug abhebt und durch diverse Ringe durchfliegen, oder Figuren in der Luft fliegen muß, die einen im Briefing vorher in Englischer Sprachausgabe erklärt werden.
Summary: Über den Wolken... Crave bringt die in Japan als "Aero Dancing" erschienene Kunstflugsimulation nach Deutschland. CRI, das Team hinter Aerowings, war bereits für "Buggy Heat" verantwortlich, das eine recht ordentliche Wertung erzielen konnte. Ob auch beim vorliegenden Titel der Spielspaß stimmt? Eigentlich ist es verwunderlich, daß man sich mit einer Kunstflugsimulation nach Deutschland traut.
