    There’s a little Crimson Skies, a little Starfox, and even some Diddy Kong Racing. They took a bunch of good ideas from those titles and assembled a rock solid action game for the younger set.
  2. A very solid offering and is one of the most enjoyable flight combat games to his the platform in the past year.
  3. A light-hearted and entertaining aerial combat adventure. Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron soars above and beyond most other flight games, kid-targeted or not.

    The game is much too hard for a younger player to get through, but still doesn't offer the challenge required for an older gamer to enjoy the entire experience. [Jan. 2007, p.89]
  5. It has solid gameplay, a good presentation and a nice ranking system that makes you want to replay levels.

    But the surprise is that they'll enjoy every minute of it; with a wide variety of mission objectives, enemies, purchasable weapons and unlockable characters, Snoopy vs. The Red Baron never stops trying to please. [Dec. 2006, p.66]

    The war doesn't last nearly long enough, though--"meager" describes the multiplayer options and maps. [Holiday 2006, p.85]

    This game perfectly captures the light-hearted fun of Snoopy's adventures as 'The World War I Flying Ace' presented by Charles This game perfectly captures the light-hearted fun of Snoopy's adventures as 'The World War I Flying Ace' presented by Charles Schulz in the "Peanuts" comic strip and seen on TV in the Peanuts Halloween special, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" The facts as presented in those works are perfectly represented here, but to make it playable you need something more... 'The Red Baron' von Richtofen commands a military force primarly composed of a flight squadron of bi-planes known as 'The Flying Circus'. The Red Baron's military also incudes PT style boats, dirigibles, U-boats, tanks, robotic drones, and more including "walkers" and "drillers". Snoopy flies his legendary Sopwith Camel, keeping the world safe for Peanuts; each and every one of us. This game preserves the slightly absurd humor that one needs to appreciate a beagle WWI pilot. Game vehicles are comical versions of familiar craft. Charlie Brown and most other known characters fly bi-planes, but Schroeder has a Wright Flyer, Peppermint Patty's nerdy pal Marcie appropriately flies an Auto-Gyro. In concept and presentation this game is just as it should be. This game only supports two players, but those two players will have a great time playing "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" on PS2 Full Review »
