I liked it. I played Wii resort from the Wii and this is one of the games on Resort! (Personally my favorite game on there) So when I found out that there was a Pilotwings resort for the 3DS I decided to rent it.
I really liked the game but I wouldn't buy it for $40. I guess that's what Gamefly is for! The game goes by pretty fast and some levels are kind of hard. Within 2 days I finished the game. Out of all I really liked my first 3DS rental.
This game does a nice job of showing what the 3DS is capable of and makes a strong first impression.
After playing for about 30 minutes or so, however, I began to realize that there just was not a lot of content. So I did a little research and my suspicions were correct: Compared to it's successor, Pilotwings 64, this game has about 1/5 the content.
The game needs more planes, modes, weather effects and stages to compare to its successors or any decent full-priced game.
In conclusion, I'm glad I rented this game and might pick it up some day if it is heavily discounted, perhaps in the $10-15 range.
Surprisingly better than I expected. The missions were fine but I actually enjoyed the hunt for all the items in the free mode more. The only down side to all of this was it only took around 8 hours to complete the whole thing.
Definite rent, but would have to offer something more than I got for a buy.
