  • Summary: Play as WWI Flying Ace Snoopy in an adventure that includes cameo appearance from 12 characters such as Charlie Brown, Woodstock, Linus, Lucy, Marcie and Sally. Barnstorm your way across six vividly rendered worlds and collect clues to reveal the whereabouts of the Red Baron's top secret hideout. Pilot Snoopy's famous Sopwith Camel and other unique aircraft in perilous sky-high dogfights, no-holds-barred air races and heart-pounding missions behind enemy lines. Upgrade your craft with a comical collection of 25 weapons and gadgets, including the lightning fast, player-guided Woodstock missile, the Bee-Shooter and the Potato Cannon. Fight your way through 50+ single-player and co-op missions in a heroic attempt to foil the plans of the Red Baron. Play in any of five modes: Single-player, Cooperative, Team Multiplayer, Versus Multiplayer and Battle. [Namco] Expand

  1. It has solid gameplay, a good presentation and a nice ranking system that makes you want to replay levels.
  2. Don't let the license fool you. Snoopy's game is loaded with intense air combat that players of any age can appreciate.
  3. Those errors and omissions not withstanding, Snoopy vs. The Red Baron still does the Peanuts legacy proud with its engaging characters and compelling pick-up-and-play simplicity. [Jan. 2007, p.66]
  4. Yet another cutesy game that is veiling the usual raison d'etre of video games — killing — and isn't anything new. Peanuts characters should soften the blow of the dropping biplanes, but really, maybe you should pick up a later volume of those complete Peanuts collections, and show your children a true work of art.
  5. It's a decent enough game, but the comic deserves better. [Feb. 2007, p.74]

    Great game for kids, and lots of fun for adults.

    Very good graphics and sound. Flight model is better than I expected, though arcade-based. Feels like a cross between Worms 3D (graphically) and Crimson Skies (flight). I bought this for my daughter, but it's much too difficult. I'd think it'd be great for the 8-12 year-old crowd, though. Certainly a better option, violence-wise, than most games coming out for "kids" these days. Expand
