The box suggested something like: this was a game for anyone who wanted to play with a model helicopter, without the risk of eye injury! I chuckled, and I was sold. It was a fairly affordable game, and I figured it would be a decent diversion now and again. I'm really glad I picked it up. The controls felt a little wonky at first, but after 2 missions, I totally got the hang of it. You have to remember that you are flying a helicopter! It's not like driving a car -- helicopters drift. That's what they do. Once you get the feel of the copter, it's actually one of the more immersive control schemes for the Wii. There is a nice variety of games -- basically subsets of 2 schemes: get somewhere quickly, and collection/delivering things. There's enough variety to keep you interested, but not too much that you get bogged down in having to learn new things. They keep it light, and that's perfect! (My favorite one: collecting body parts in the doctors office, and put them in the body operation-style! Don't worry, parents, in the game it is just an Operation style game you are assembling, just a model, not actual body parts...) The graphics are quite pleasant, really. They are blocky and toy-like, but since you are playing a game about a blocky toy, it fits quite nicely. Nice colors and contrast that the Wii is perfect for. There's a little bit of level-up-style things in between missions: Upgrade your copter, and fly better and faster! There is just enough depth in here to keep you coming back... Sometimes it CAN be frustrating (barely bonk into the wall 3 times, you fail) but it forces you to be precise and really nail the control of a helicopter. I never blamed a failure on the controls or the game, it was always my sloppy fault. If you want a quick-playing, moderate depth, light-challenge game, this is for you.
yes: I recommend this product
