  1. This game is the 'chill-out area' in the game nightclub, it is so peaceful, and gives a real buzz when you do well.
  2. Simply flying around and admiring the scenery is an enjoyable enough pass-time. When you get serious with the game, it's demanding but fair, constantly pushing you further in mastering the various craft and the environment.
  3. A silky smooth wonder. The absolute freedom that can be yours in this game is unprecedented. With a large screen television and proper stereo amplification, Pilot Wings 64 truly takes us where no console game has ever gone before.
  4. The best part of Pilotwings 64 is exploring the four islands. You'll not believe just how huge the islands really are and, because certain elements are hidden at first, it'll take you months to see everything.
  5. Pilotwings 64 comes close to being the most realistic experience ever offered on a home video gaming system. The thrill factor for gaming has been upped with this title.

    A great game if you just want to chill and fly like an eagle. A little hard, not that long, but the ideal cartridge to enjoy sometimes, between two Zelda games for example. Music is certainly the greatest thing in it, really peaceful and appeasing, especially if you just take the time to fly around and admire the N64 ability. But if you go deeper in the game's records, that's a tough one. Full Review »

    Very strange game, the goal is to pass a series of flying tests with your pilot. There are some interesting scenarios and the music is good. Aside from that, the game gets boring very fast because of the lack of objectives in the game. Full Review »
