GameSpot – MySims SkyHeroes Wii review

0

Thanks InfiniteSims!

The Wii version of MySims SkyHeroes comes with a full retail price, and the game tries its best to make it worth the cost. The problem is SkyHeroes stretches two relatively shallow, albeit accessible, game types over an excessively long Story mode where their AI problems are put on display over and over again. The multiplayer can be a source of some entertainment, but only lasts as long as the learning curve does–which is to say, not that long. Once players become experienced, it often just becomes a race to see who can gain the strongest power-ups while they’re not flying in circles. This might have worked well as a smaller, more limited, and cheaper product, but as a full retail offering, SkyHeroes never gets off the ground.

You’ve guessed it – another ‘poor’ score…

Playstation LifeStyle – MySims SkyHeroes reviewed

Gameplay is below-average at best. Players go around the maps picking up powerups and using them on opponents. There are a variety of powerups available but over time it becomes a very repetitive experience. The maps are rather large and offer differing challenges each time they are played, so overall there is just not a lot of variety within the title. Seeing as how you are a part of the SkyHeroes team during the campaign, you will find yourself playing many dogfights or races (these are the only two modes within the entire game). Some missions will find you working with your squad mates and others will have you against them. The problem is that it is essentially the same thing over and over at the end of the day.

Go Fanboy – MySims SkyHeroes PS3 review

More and more bad scores are piling on for MySims SkyHeroes.  Knowing this fact, I should probably start to keep an eye on the clearance bins.  It won’t have a long shelf life with the full retail priced games, that’s for sure!

Overall MySims SkyHeroes is another nice effort at providing kids with something to play, by results in being merely worth a flyby. EA wants to provide a coach flight for the price of a first-class ticket. With so many other games out there offering a better version of what SkyHeroes is trying to provide, there’s no sense in picking this one up. If you even bother renting, keep your parachute on, because you’ll be hitting eject quickly. SkyHeroes is available now at retail, but don’t bother.

Another badly scored review for the first flight MySims game, this time by GameSpot:

MySims SkyHeroes isn’t quite full retail price (it comes in at $49.99) on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, but it really seems like the game tries its best to make it worth the normal cost. The problem is SkyHeroes stretches two relatively shallow, albeit accessible, game types over an excessively long Story mode where their AI problems are put on display over and over again. The multiplayer can be a source of some entertainment, but only lasts as long as the learning curve does–which is to say, not that long. Once players become experienced, it often just becomes a race to see who can gain the strongest power-ups while they’re not flying in circles. This might have worked well as a smaller, more limited, and cheaper downloadable product, but as a full retail offering, SkyHeroes never gets off the ground.

VideoGamesDaily – MySims SkyHeroes review

A not-so-kind review on MySims SkyHeroes from VideoGamesDaily:

I feel a bit stupid for ragging on SkyHeroes. It’s not aimed at me, nor in all likelihood at you. It’s aimed at people old enough to hold a controller but not old enough to comprehend the basics of aviation, including the principle that a plane’s wings ought to extend further than the pilot’s hairdo.

It was never going to be clever, or challenging, or original, and you certainly didn’t need me to tell you that – just check out a trailer, or any of the other titles in this cynical little sub-series (actually, don’t bother with the second bit).

Evergeek – MySims SkyHeroes review

Anyway, for all its novelty and forthright charm, MySims Sky Heroes is essentially a generic pipsqueak kart racing game where chortling fatheads go zipping around extravagantly surreal courses shooting at each other’s tails, scooping up power-ups and lobbing one-timer smart bombs at each other if not dropping banana peel-like impediments behind them. Of course, instead of karts on a track you’re flying toy planes in the sky – a sky so tightly circumscribed by an invisible barrier as to not be the wild blue yonder but an aeronautical playground in a snow globe. Confining, in a word. Then again, with a target audience of, what, 8-year olds? Well, no one’s going to get lost, at least.
