The first Pilotwings on the SNES was great, I'm not sure about the N64 Pilotwings yet seeing as how I've yet to play that one sadly, and this one is quite good as well. Remember the flying games of Wii Sports Resort where you basically flew a plane with the Wii Remote to find landmarks and pop balloons and stuff? This is basically that same thing but with more aircraft. The plane plays just like in Wii Sports Resort but without motion control, but the Rocket Belt and Hang Glider play exactly the same as in the previous Pilotwings which is awesome for both old time Pilotwings fans and newcomers. There are also 3 extra aircraft you can earn by playing missions, but I won't tell you what they are, you have to earn them yourself to find out. The only problem is that when you finish all the missions, find all landmarks, and pop all balloons and find all hidden stuff it's all over, and there's no multiplayer like in Wii Sports Resort, and without Mii's in the background it feels kinda lonely. But other than that it's a good game and I highly recommend it.

This is completely different from other games. The graphics and flying physics are well done but it is a very low key game. If you like collecting and working for a higher score it can be very fun. I liked the game so much I bough it. I found a copy on eBay for $12 brand new. Totally worth that much money. I would never pay $30 for it.
