Wii Review - 'Rebel Raiders: Operation Nighthawk'
15 October 2008
Summary: Rebel Raiders: Operation Nighthawk is the ultimate futuristic aerial combat game featuring some of the most frenzied air battles ever witnessed with an intensity rarely reached in a videogame.
Conclusion: In many ways, Rebel Raiders is a few tweaks away from a great discount game. Players could live with the low-rent production if that meant enjoying great controls and balanced shooting levels. A little less sensitivity in the steering, a little more challenge from the rival planes, and an easier way to target enemy guns would have provided this. Maybe some multiplayer, whether online or split-screen, could have helped, too.
Excerpt: Flight combat games aren't the most popular genre on consoles, but once in a while we get a gem such as Ace Combat or Crimson Skies. Rebel Raiders: Operation Nighthawk isn't on the level of those games, with its simplistic flight and combat modeling, as well as its budget-oriented presentation. If all you're looking for is a little mindless destruction, though, it's not all that bad, but there are much better options available.
Pros: Simple and easy to play, Three different aircraft to fly
Cons: Repetitive mission design, Not much variety in enemies, Graphic detail is very budget oriented, No multiplayer
Excerpt: Conçu à l'abri des regards dans le cadre chaleureux des studios de Kando, jeune société de développement française, Rebel Raiders : Operation Nighthawk est un jeu d'action aérien dans la lignée des Ace Combat. S'inspirant également de la fameuse série des Star Wars Rogue Squadron à certains égards, Rebel Raiders est-il une bonne surprise ou une cruelle déception ? La réponse tout de suite.
