Summary: I have the same problem concerning the maniablily of the planes that I have with WWII Aces. The controls don't feel real like the ones in Blazing Angels Squadron which I found close to real life piloting.
Summary: The problem with Sky Crawlers is that it fails as a simulator and it fails as an arcade game. First, the game forces you to watch the story wchih is a very long cartoon, drawn in traditional Japanese style. If I want cartoons I can watch TV, let me play!! The controls are way too easy, even for an arcade game.
Summary: I prefer flying games with realistic flight physics and control, and after the disappointment of Blazing Angels I was hoping this game would be better. It isn't. The token instruments are useless, control response is sluggish, and as another reviewer mentioned, no landing or takeoff. In fact, no landing gear at all. Worst of all, the game utilizes built in 'tactical maneuvers' to put you behind your target.
Summary: My first inpressions of this game were good it has good graphics and an engaging storyline hiowever it is an awful game to control using the nunchuck input method and it borders on being unplayable. I would strongl urge anyone buying this game to get a classic controller as this seems to be the only input method that works.
