Wing Island is basically a game where you control planes and do missions from extinguishing fires to locating cows. The game itself has nice graphics and the look is cute. The missions are enjoyable yet some are difficult and may take multiple tries to conquer. The controls are easy to learn and master. There could be a few more selections of planes to buy and a larger variety. Wing Island is a game that can kill an hour or so but then the missions repeat themselves and become monotonous. Overall, a game for a younger crowd.

At the time of this review Wing Island is rated 4.1. This game is certainly better than that. The controls are not perfect but they are the best controls for a flying game on Wii. Controls are much better than for Blazing Angles or Heatseeker. I love having multiple planes and flying them in different formations. You have to use the best formation for your task There were great competitions where you had to pop the other plane’s balloons or use formations to pop hordes of balloon in the sky. The game looked great and ran smoothly. It did give me pleasant memories of Pilotwings from the SNES. I feel comfortable with my 7 rating as a good solid rent but probably not worth a purchase.
The down side was the story and squeaks for voice acting. These dumb little ducks looked awful. The story should have been completely removed. If you can skip through the pathetic dialog then you will find what’s left to be a pretty good game.
