Summary: My son is obsessed with helicopters and the radio controlled minicopter he got for Christmas didn't last until Boxing Day, so I ordered him this video game. The controls are simple to learn, but difficult to master, which is the hallmark of a great game. It keeps him and his brother coming back to try to fly through all the hoops in the room, pick up all the objects or shoot the targets. And that's just in the first level.
Summary: The box suggested something like: this was a game for anyone who wanted to play with a model helicopter, without the risk of eye injury! I chuckled, and I was sold. It was a fairly affordable game, and I figured it would be a decent diversion now and again. I'm really glad I picked it up. The controls felt a little wonky at first, but after 2 missions, I totally got the hang of it. You have to remember that you are flying a helicopter!
Summary: For the price, this game is not bad. However, it really isn't anything that takes advantage of the Wii hardware, in terms of level of detail, visual effects, and the like. Re-playability is low due to the fact that the single player game track takes you through the same few levels many many times (with slightly different challenges). The game would be much better if there were more or larger levels to explore (or both), more "free roaming" missions, and mini-games.
Summary: I bought this game because I am a huge fan of games where you play as small things, especially the Chibi Robo series. If you are a fan of the Chibi Robo games, you know all to well how much fun it can be doing seemingly mundane tasks. Minicopter Adventure Flight is very much similar to Chibi Robo. You command a miniature helicopter and complete missions in a variety of different environments. They range from a child's bedroom, hospital, office, park, etc.
Summary: Well, when I first looked at MiniCopter, my first thought was "hmm, another shovelware title" . This one is not. After completing the first missions I was very confident in my flying abilities and took to the park. I spent some time playing with my little heli as it soared around a park picking up trash and shooting cans. Then I thought...this is a great game.
