  • Summary: Sky Gunner follows the story of 3 ace pilots, Ciel, Copain and Femme, who are hired to protect the "Eternal Engine," an engine capable of perpetual motion. Little do they know, the criminal genius Ventre is planning to use the town's celebration aboard the luxury airship Merveilleux as an opportunity to steal the Eternal Engine for his own evil ends.

  1. Boasting some of the most inspired aesthetics since "Panzer Dragoon," SG conjres a sense of flight and freedom so convincing, you'll want to nose dive out of the sun and into and enemy's blind spot just because you can. [August 2002, p.130]
  2. A shooter fan's dream, and it's chock full of personality and presentation.
  3. SkyGunner is everything that shooter fans have come to expect.
  4. An odd camera which focuses on the enemies seems a rotten idea, then you get used to it, and discover a fairly deep and great looking shooter. [July 2002, p.82]
  5. 78
    If you can get past the technical difficulties, it's a great action game, not to mention quite the visual showcase for PlayStation 2 and its developer's artistic abilities.
  6. What covers most for its faults are its replay value and abundant personality. [August 2002, p.20]
  7. So is it worth your 50 Messetas? If you like shooters, or are a collector of Atlus titles, I’d have to give a resounding yes. For anyone else, I’d call this one a renter. It’s easily completed in a weekend.
