The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces is the latest flight simulation game from Project Aces, the development team behind the Ace Combat series. Holding the Nunchuk in the right hand as the flight control stick and the Wii Remote in the left hand as the throttle, the unique controls of the Wii are fully utilized to simulate the controls of sitting in an actual cockpit. The somber story of a world that needs war to survive is told with a combination of animated cut-scenes and voiced in-game sequences during battle. After decades of constant war and fighting, the world has finally come to a lasting peace. But with war being an integral part of their lives for so long, the citizens of the world are desperate for a solution to solve this newfound peaceful life of calm and tranquility. To ease this tension and to appease its citizens, the government has started pursuing a new round of wars. These new campaigns are not a power struggle between hostile countries, but rather sponsored events between private corporations with military-trained personnel contracted by each side to do their biding for them. It is the battles fought by these corporations such as Rostock and Lautern and the constant media reports on them that satisfy and replace the basic human instinct to fight using the war as a show. The latest rookie pilot to join the Sky Crawlers, codenamed “Lynx,” is working his way up the ranks and becomes involved in a secret new military project with the goal of making pilots immortal. Join Lynx on his journey to conquer the skies while unraveling the mystery behind the military's covert new project.

Another hidden gemIf you ever wanted an Ace Combat game for the Wii, here it is. The only issue you may have would be the controls which take some getting used to even if you plan on using the Classic Controller.

Reminds me of War Thunder!I bought this game a few weeks ago and it's not half bad! It reminds me of War Thunder for the PC, but the multiplayer is lacking. Your buddy that wants to play with you can only be your gunner, and its hard to tell if they are shooting or not. If they are into it as much as you then it's not so bad. I'm liking the story and the fact that I can use a controller to fly rather than being stuck with wii motions is a plus! Ether that, if you get good at a certain button and timing, some of the dog fights you have can be a little too easy.

A wannabe pilot. from
OkWell, what can I say about this game. The animation cutscenes are nice and unlike Blazing angels you can't mess up the intergame chatter. But it has it's drawbacks. The aircraft aren't as manuverable and take longer to turn than in angels and the ground animation isn't as good as it could be. And there are missions where you don't need bombsbut you are required to have a secondary weapon. But usually the secondaries, namely the heavy machine guns, can come in handy, but you're given a limited amount of ammo and time limits adding to the fraustration. And some levels are near impossible with the aircraft they give you, like the reconnissance level, I'm currently stuck on that. I can't hit the enemies because my craft sucks. It would be nice if it was more like angels and they gave you a fighter, but no ammo. All in all, better than I expected, but not as good as I hoped.

Best fighter sim I've played yet!A superbly crafted game which had me eagerly playing for hours straight. Highly recommended to anyone that ever liked the thought of flying a fighter plane. I love playing it under expert controls, which gives you immense freedom to do any kinda stunt you're able to pull off, granted it leaves my head spinning for awhile after I stop playing. Beginner controls allows you to move left/right and rise/descend at a more manageable rate. Pros - Adjustable controls between 5 different sets, including a beginner, normal, and expert mode to better help you pilot the plane. - Very realistic to a fighter - Challenging and fun - Beautiful graphics -Great sound track and voice acting! - Cheap release price! Cons - Fighter sims arent for everyone - Can be quite hard, those who do not like challenges beware. In my opinion this is one of the best underknown games on the Wii released yet!
