    Much like Angry Birds Space, Flight Control Rocket is a great new version of the original game that will keep you addicted and eat up a lot of your spare time, and you'll be humming the theme tune throughout (and beyond).

    A more than justified sequel. The gameplay doesn't change a lot, but the new features bring some freshness and renovation to the formula, and the new visuals are great. It is as addictive as ever, and a sure bet for your iPhone.

    Flight Control Rocket may not enjoy the same astronomical success as Flight Control, as it is more a natural progression from the original rather than something completely different. What it does offer is some simple, addictive fun.

    Good stuff, but it does leave you pining for the simplicity of the original. [June 2012, p.84]

    Beneath EA's layer of crafty monetisation, however, Flight Control Rocket is a stellar effort. The generic sci-fi visuals and overly busy menus might lack the instant appeal of Flight Control's handsome '50s styling, and that game's purity is sorely missing here, but underneath all that EA sheen is a game with genuine heart.

    Flight Control Rocket maintains the same fun of the predecessor but not the same freshness; however there are two or three new features, like the Bots for example, that could be considered interesting.

    Minus the free-to-play shenanigans, Flight Control Rocket is easily the best entry in the series so far, as it sports a lot of fresh and fun ideas, as well as a groovy new theme that Firemint fleshes out splendidly throughout. It's also one of the best looking new iPad games.
