Game Vortex writes: "The Sky Crawlers is a flight combat game that bears similarities to games in the Ace Combat franchise. The campaign is split into seventeen sorties with different objectives. By destroying targets and shooting down enemy planes, you earn points. There are conditions for both success and failure, but if you succeed, you'll be rewarded with new planes, colors and weapons. The game is very simple at its core; if I explained any more, I'd be stealing content from the final segment of this review."
