Snoopy Flying Ace: Suppertime of Destruction Review (XBLA)
Gamers Daily News
22 September 2010
Summary: $5 to get two very unusual aircraft, three new weapons that each have a meaningful role in combat, and five new modes (even if only one of them seems to see much play) is a decent deal. If you still enjoy the fast, arcade-style air combat of Snoopy Flying Ace then this DLC pack should make it even more fun.
Summary: " Snoopy Flying Ace " is a surprise hit. The gameplay is good, and it has some of the best multiplayer on XBLA. There are a few issues with difficulty and achievements, but this is one title that is definitely worth a purchase for all budding Top Guns out there.
Excerpt: Snoopy: The Flying Ace was a game I was looking forward to from Namco. It’s built from ground up and isn’t using one of the existing Namco franchise characters (Pac-Man, Dig Dug, etc.) as basis for the game. So what can Namco do with completely brand new material? Flying Ace puts you in the shoes of Snoopy as he flies his Sopwith Camel against the Red Baron to save his comrade in arms, Woodstock.
Conclusion: Snoopy Flying Ace for the Xbox LIVE arcade is everything it claims to be, does not pretend to be something else, and does everything better than I could have asked for. Hands down the best arcade game I have ever bought, an amazing investment. I urge you to play it at least once, you won't be dissapointed. Overall rating: I give Snoopy Flying Ace a 9 out of 10.
Excerpt: Scoff all you want (it's hard not to), but once you're done, understand this - Snoopy: Flying Ace is one of the best multiplayer flight-combat game available on consoles, bar none. Taking its cues from arcade-style fare such as Crimson Skies and keeping the Peanuts license tastefully in check, developer Smart Bomb has crafted a stunning online game that's only limited by its paltry single-player content.
Excerpt: Having your expectations exceeded is one of the last remaining joys in this world. It is easy to become jaded by licensed titles; we have been abused by them for decades now. Snoopy Flying Ace is different. Not only does it license a beloved property, but it builds on a foundation of solid game mechanics. The resulting game is enjoyable, and one of the standout titles on XBLA. Fans of Peanuts will appreciate what Smart Bomb Interactive has done with this game.
