UGO writes: "The cutscenes. If you're into anime at all, you'll enjoy the animated cut scenes that occur between missions. The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces takes a serious tone and strives to present a full-fledged story behind all the flying and shooting.
The mission types. In Sky Crawlers you'll get a combination of seek and destroy, air-to-ground and surveillance missions. It breaks up the sometimes monotony flight games present with an endless cycle of circling and killing enemies."
