  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. 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.
  3. 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.

    It's a classic Nintendo game made up of simple, addictive qualities and garnished with superlative detail and graphic finesse.
  5. This was a well designed game that was rushed a bit. Another month of development and this game could have been better than Mario (well, a month's a rough estimate).
  6. It's a great game that's filled with memories of what used to be considered mind-blowing. Check it out.
  7. Overall, there's not much to this game, if you can call it a game. If you're looking for a game with a point or a plot, keep looking.

This was a day 1 release for the N64. This and Mario 64 were the first 2 games that I got for the 64. I love this game so much. Hang gliding, the gyrocopter, and the rocket pack...NEVER GETS OLD! Then there is the wing suit, the cannonball and skydiving. This game is awesome and I still love it to this day. I HOPE THIS MAKES IT ON THE N64 MINI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    An amazingly relaxing experience- the music, the sense of flight, the changing skies and weather. I have yet to see anything match it, as An amazingly relaxing experience- the music, the sense of flight, the changing skies and weather. I have yet to see anything match it, as even though I don't like simulators, I love flying this way. It shows just how revolutionary the N64 was, I hope more people get to try it, maybe on the Wii.

    I'm scoring this game based on my impressions 20+ years ago, as out of that context it doesn't hold up quite so well today. That said,I'm scoring this game based on my impressions 20+ years ago, as out of that context it doesn't hold up quite so well today. That said, Pilotwings 64 is a lot of fun on its original platform, which sadly is the only official way to play it. There's not a ton of variety here, but I find it relaxing and enjoyable to pull out every once in a while. This is no Microsoft Flight Simulator, but it is leaps and bounds ahead of its frustrating SNES predecessor. Expand

    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.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. Expand
