  • Summary: Take to the sky in addictive, action-packed missions, flying authentic planes and jets-even experimental aircraft. Attempt to refuel from a moving train, fly through underground tunnels, and touch down on an aircraft carrier at sea. From the thrill of barnstorming to the challenge of rescues, your piloting skills and nerves will be tested to their adrenaline-screaming limits. Expand

  1. The stunning 3D worlds will knock your socks off, and the mix of aircraft will keep you coming back for more. Sky Odyssey is remarkable -- every PlayStation 2 owner should rush out to grab this one. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

    An amazing game and if you're one of the lucky people that have been able to get a hold of a PS 2, you really ought to treat yourself to one of this year's most impressive software titles by buying this epic flight adventure. You won't be disappointed.
  3. Simplicity with a reliance on skill over chance is generally the recipe for console gaming success, and that's the case with Sky Odyssey -- this is gameplay in its purest form, and despite the oft-times ugly visuals, it's an addictive and enjoyable experience.
  4. The music is amazing and sets the mood brilliantly, the gameplay is well thought out and effectively conveys the feeling of flight while keeping it fun enough for a video game.
  5. 75
    Mildly enjoyable, but I found it hardly engaging.
  6. 50
    You'll have more fun cruising third class on a no name charter.

    I play this game for a long time now and am always coming back to it. This is the kind of game that really is worth every cent of its cost.

    !!*This game is the reason I play with Inverted controls on ALL Game Genres*!! The challenge it offers in the higher levels is unmatched. I personally think it has High Replay Value. Expand

    This game is a dream! And one of the best PS2 games of all time. Most important to me is that it just makes me dream away with its wonderful landscapes and great soundtrack. The developers did really great in creating a wonderful new world and doing something different than everyone else is doing. But I guess the masses will never digest anything so beautiful if it doesn't have guns and blood and the latest graphics engine. It's a shame. Because games like these don't get the success they deserve by todays oh-so-cool gamer kiddies, I really think the gaming community is going down. Expand

    I totally agree with everyone else, great game exciting missions, sure it can be frustrating but when you complete some of the more challenging missions they are truly satisfying. Good variety in the landscapes and excitement. Also how cool was it finding the garden of eden at the end... trippy ! two thumbs way up. Expand

    A flight sim game that doesn't need guns or over-elaborate conrols, yet still gets the blood pumping and gives people an opportunity to be blown by the wind, get shocked by low cloud thunderstorms, and fly in aircraft like the m-e-262, or the awesome stealth fighter! Breathtaking stuff, but it may suffer from some due to its genre, after all, not many people are heavily into flight orientated games. Expand

    Frustration is there, but it is still a boat load of fun in the end. Extremely low end visuals will demand the player go in looking for more than just a pretty face, but they will find their dedication to be well worth it. Expand
