    There are no two ways about this. Everyone needs to play Arc Squadron, and they need to play it now.

    In many ways Arc Squadron is a better sequel to Star Fox 64 than the official games that followed it, making it a must-have for mobile space combat fans.

    It's obvious that Psyonix put a lot of care and effort into ARC Squadron and it certainly shows in all facets of the game. With a ton of content, smooth controls and visuals worth talking about, there's little to not enjoy about ARC Squadron.

    ARC Squadron is an excellent space shooter, packed with a lot of missions, upgrades and boss fights. What a pity the touch controls don't always work as they should.

    This is an addictive, long and hard game. Visually stunning and fun ARC Squadron is one of the best games in its genre we've seen this year, so if you like shooting aliens it's worth trying.

    ARC Squadron is a good alternative to the classic Japanese shoot'em up reported to the success from companies such as CAVE, right on the iOS platforms.

    The ridiculous amount of content, large degree of variety and finely-tuned challenge will keep you glued to your mobile device's screen.

    Reminiscent of StarFox 64, but a bit more simplified. The game can begin to feel a little bit monotonous, but the ability to upgrade your shipReminiscent of StarFox 64, but a bit more simplified. The game can begin to feel a little bit monotonous, but the ability to upgrade your ship and weapons plus some special levels and bosses mixed in keep it fun for a while. Collapse
