But back in the here and now, Pilotwings, like the rest of us, is starting to show its age. No longer the spry showcase of fantastical flights of fancy, this game feels like an old codger who just wants to relax on the titular resort and get swept up in the memories of the good old days. If you played Pilotwings 64, it’s remarkable how much of the style and mechanics of that game were neutered for this one. 15 years later and Pilotwings Resort is lacking much of what its predecessor had – which wasn’t a whole lot to begin with.
