All the reviews say there is not much to this game (and they are right); but it is not like it is promising one thing and delivering another. I found myself keeping this one longer then the usual 1 day. Rent it and you will be suprised that you will like it and when it comes down to $9.99 it is worth adding to your library. Afterall; we all need a brake from hardcore shoot them ups.

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.

This game didn't hold my interest long, but my kids enjoyed it. The only problem I had was that the controls were a little off, but not as bad as some other Wii games I have tried.
