Nintendo Life: Pilotwings 64 Review

Nintendo Life: Releasing alongside Super Mario 64 when the Nintendo 64 launched back in 1996 (1997 if you're European), it was somewhat inevitable that Pilotwings 64 was never going to see the same commercial or critical success. Simply put, Mario's first 64-bit adventure was a masterpiece and proved that Nintendo could recreate its flagship franchise for the next generation of gaming. While the portly plumber delivered a much-needed killer app to Nintendo's advanced system, its amateur flight simulator counterpart was considered little more than a glorified tech demo by many observers at the time. (Pilotwings 64, Retro) 9/10

There are very few titles that bring me back to the exact moment and mood of a certain period in my life. Pilotwings 64 is absolutely one of those titles.

The music and gameplay each play a part in bringing a flood of memories back. Looks like it's time to dig my 64 out of storage...again.
