Excerpt: The Sky Crawlers Innocent Aces is an aerial combat video game on the Wii. The anime cut scenes and storyline is one thing that separates this game from the rest of the pack. Parents need to realize this is a 'T' rated video game, and should follow the rating. The main controls in The Sky Crawlers Innocent Aces are the Wii Remote in the left hand, and the Nunchuk in the right hand. This felt weird at first but after a few missions I got used to it.
Summary: The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces is a fun little game for the Wii. It’s surprising that the Ace Combat developers decided to make this game instead of giving the Wii a dedicated Ace Combat game. While the lock-on missiles are missed it wouldn’t have fit in with the overall world that’s created in the Sky Crawlers. The control scheme is actually well implemented, with motion controls actually making sense for once in a Wii game instead of being tacked on.
Review: The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces (Nintendo Wii)

Summary: : The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces makes great use of its passionate source material, and incorporates the dramatic story into a great flight simulation game. Outstanding gameplay innovations really make The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces stand apart from similar flight sims while still feeling familiar to fans of the Ace Combat series.
Summary: The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces is the latest flight simulation game from Ace Combat developers Project Aces. Holding the Nunchuk in the right hand as the flight control stick and the Wii Remote in the left hand as the throttle, the unique controls of the Wii are fully utilized to simulate the controls of sitting in an actual cockpit.
Summary: The Sky Crawlers does many things right and is genuinely fun, but is just too short for the $30 price. Fans of the genre may be able to overlook this and it makes a fantastic rental, but others may want to save their money.
Excerpt: A show. That’s all the war really is. You’d think a society that moved beyond warfare could do without meaningless violence, but it’s still entertaining. World peace is overrated; people need a reminder of just how good they’ve got it. Can you imagine it? An entire war fought just to keep people complacent. For profit, too. War is a business, so both sides have carefully designed their forces and battles to create an endless stalemate. Battles are won, but never the war.
Excerpt: For anyone who has viewed the movie, the mere existence of the game may seem puzzling. There, the grand war was merely a backdrop, a meaningless cycle that only highlighted the Kildren's wasted existence.
Excerpt: Ever hear the one about the pilot, the bombardier and Picasso? Throughout its varied and often seemingly incompatible forms, there exist two basic criteria for defining the concept of art — the act of creation and the attribute of beauty. These may be subjective notions, but even with the most embellished arguments, it would be difficult to equate either with warfare, a ritual which leaves the opposites —destruction and ugliness — in its wake.
Conclusion: With another Wii title under their belt, XSEED Games is has proven that third-party games can have both quality and quantity, without sacrificing anything. The guys over at Project Aces have stepped up to the plate translating an animated masterpiece in a playable and enjoying videogame that Wii owners show openly welcome into their gaming collection… albeit if you light flight-based games.
