Rodea the Sky Soldier brings speed and adventure together in this new journey through the sky. 1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Geardo's assault was thwarted. In present day, a spirited inventor named Ion discovers an abandoned robot that has fallen into disrepair in the heart of a scorching desert. Upon completing her repairs, the robot stirs to life and reveals itself to be none other than Rodea. Stunned to find himself in the future, Rodea learns that the Naga Empire is no more and that Garuda has known peace for 1,000 years. But this peace was not meant to last, for the forces of Naga have returned to wage war against Garuda. Remembering the promise he made 1,000 years ago, Rodea takes to the skies to defend Garuda from the Naga Empire once again.

Play Wii version firstRodea the sky solider is a pretty fun game on the Wii. The Wii u version is okay and the Wii version is really good. i recommend you play the Wii version included first because it is the definitive version. The game is colorful and can get hard. Get it while it still has the Wii version included.

Great action game for WiiThe first print of this game comes with the Wii version of the game. This makes great use of the pointer controls of the Wii remote, looks very bright and fun, and has a good soundtrack. The Wii U version is not as peppy, but isn't bad, although you can't use the pointer controls of the Wii remote and the recommended style is on the Wii U Gamepad. Both games are rewarding if you put the time in to master the controls (about 10-30 minutes max).

Very Disapointed!The game has a nice story, great music...thats it. if ONLY i could invert the Y axis on camera at least, it would be more playable for me. This game was meant to be played with the Wii controller, point and click. That would have worked so well! I went out of my way thinking, Hey its out! i waited so long. only to slapped in the face. this game is CLEARLY for the Wii not Wii U. like NiGHTS!? no... it is NOT!

Wii version is easier to learn due to Wii remoteI ordered the collectors edition and am very satisfied. Yuji Naka stated he wished the game came with a Wii remote because the game was designed around that controller. I checked out the Wii version first playing with the Wii remote and after a bit of practice found he was exactly right, the feel of control became natural and I was zipping around with ease. (Yes, I love it!!) I popped in the WiiU version and found that the controls were quite different. At first, I was very frustrated but then after upgrading, I unlocked some control features found in the Wii version which made it easier. This game is wonderful but you will need to spend time mastering the controls before you really enjoy it. To me, it is a treasure and game like no other. Not for anyone who gives up easily. I am not sure yet if you can unlock the same control scheme in the WiiU version.

The trailer made the game look so goodThinking I would get combat like kid Icarus up rising and enemies straight out of shadow of the colossus, I was really disappointed when I booted the game up. From the very first mission there's frame rate drops and clunky controls. From its graphics to its controls, this was obviously meant for the Wii, not the WiiU. If you pre-ordered the game and got it with the Wii version, play that one instead. Story is no different. But if you are going to purchase the WiiU version only, good luck playing it. I want to enjoy it but the clunky controls get in the way.
