Summary: This game is a welcome addition to a barren genre. The arcade flight scene is in need of new blood and this game delivers. The game uses it setting to stage some breathtaking battles, the backgrounds and set pieces all go along way to making it all believable. Its anime like story take full advantage of the pacing keeping the action moving never feeling slow and never feeling too fast or unending either.
Summary: In an age of terrible first person shooters and over the top action games a cool shooter like this gets lost. Which blows cause Project Sylpheed is an incredible game that tries to breath life into a genre that's slowly dying out. The story, for the most part, is pretty cliche' inexperienced pilot grows into ace, best female friend becomes girlfriend, former best friend is rival, enemy bent on total destruction of hero's civilization.
Summary: Even though I'm not really good at them, I enjoy flight sims. Space based ones are pretty good too. This one is great. The mechanics are smooth, the scenery looks beautiful. The missions are far from short too. There, of course, are a handful of short ones but those are necessary to carry on the plot. One thing, and the only thing, I dislike about it, is the game is feeding you so much information at once, its hard to grasp whats going on.
Summary: I'd been curious about this game since first seeing it on the shelves in 2006/2007. It's followed me since as it seems that every time I walk into a Gamestop I see a copy sitting on their used game shelf. What always struck me is how much the cover art gave me a Macross (Robotech, for the uninitiated) type of vibe...and that maintained my curiosity. Well, I finally purchased a new copy of this game from Amazon at a very cheap price.
Summary: This game is Very different, but also very difficult. Playing this reminds me of the old N64 game star fox. The controls and dynamics are very similar and I am currently stuck on a level where enemies are coming out of clouds. Good Luck...
Space combat? Yes. Well-driven storyline? ...ehh, kind of?

Summary: I really like space combat games. I mean, I enjoy Ace Combat so why not take it to outer space? Though, there aren't many games like that nowadays for modern consoles and even the older space combat games such as Hellbender and Fury 3 for the PC aren't available anymore. So, what's to play? I saw the Square Enix logo on the game case, so I kind of expected it to be promising or disappointing. I bought the game and, well, it's quite promising.
