Summary: I was (am) looking for a game similar to the flying game in Wii Resort. I've found all but one of the locations there and enjoy relaxing and flying around the island. In this game, most of the time you're flying a formation of 5 planes at a time, the islands are not as detailed as Wii Resort and a lot more boxy. If you like this sort of thing, I found the missions challenging, but I'm not a die-hard gamer.
Summary: Despite the fact that this game has a few areas that could have been improved, it is still a fun game. The pros of this game include: simple controls, average graphics, and enough challenge to keep you playing. The cons include: some difficult maneuvers, several tedious missions to beat, a bit of unrealism, and a lack of variety. The game play, challenge, and graphics are three of the enjoyable aspects of this game.
Summary: I got this game for my son's 7th birthday. It's challenging enough for him that it holds his interest, but not so difficult that he gives up in tears (although he has requested the aid of his big sister a couple of times). The story serves as a framework for a series of missions - finding cows, blowing up annoying rocks, etc. My only complaint is that the Save option is buried in an Options menu, but you can turn on Auto-save (not enabled by default).
Promising controls marred by insane difficulty / inane setup

Summary: Let's be brief here. 1. Wing island is insanely difficult. The nice thing about flying in general is the sense of freedom. Wing island is like being beaten over the head with a relentless taskmaster. Expect to repeat missions 8 or 9 times simply because you've run out of time. It's that badly tuned. 2. Annoying / inane dialog. This is not just a reflection on the kiddy veneer over the game, but that the dialog, is long, empty, and annoying. 3. Broken rewards system.
Summary: I rented this game and i am glad i didn't buy it. it has a very kid oriented cast of characters and look to the game play. its somewhat challenging with the controls which kind of makes you wonder why they made it geared towards kids with the difficulty level it has. the controls themselves aren't that great. too many things being based on remote movement and they don't respond like they are supposed to.
Summary: Had hoped for a bit better. It runs OK, but if you can't pass a particular task you might well have to give up. The game play is very simple; you can DEFINITELY get fed up with all the text narrative, but you can skip past quite quickly. It was only a few quid and that is as long as it held my interest. PS2 had a much much better flying (but not shoot 'em up game.
