Sky Crawlers is a game ideal for both anime and flight game fans. The narrative is tailored for those familiar with the series, so there's not much substance for everyone else. Tight, intuitive controls combined with good voice acting and a solid soundtrack make the dog fighting feel intense and enjoyable. However, lacklustre mission types, dull environments and no real replay incentive are drawbacks to the experience. Overall, Sky Crawlers is a competent arcade flight game on the Wii, just don't expect anything Earth shattering.
