  1. Go! Sports Skydiving is a nice proposal, with a few control problems, but that gets more fun in multiplayer. It’s not really interesting in single-player, though, so it’s recommended to think before you dive.
  2. Sky Diving remains a cheap and cheerful title that will get your Sixaxis muscles flowing again.

    The visuals are generally clean and bright, while the audio is made up of your generic menu music, and a series of beeps and tones when instructed to move or perform a certain action.
  4. It would have benefited from a better structure and more unlockables. [Mar 2008, p.81]
  5. Another of Sony's bite-sized attempts to make motion control work, and although skydiving's a better idea than skiiing (seek out "Feel Ski" for proof - or rather, don't), it still isn't much fun. [Mar 2008, p.113]
  6. 40
    Throw in some very uneven game presentation - nice graphics, poor instruction manual and plug-your-ears-annoying soundtrack - and gamers are presented with a title that not even the in-game appearance of Wesley Snipes could make appealing.
  7. As interesting an idea as Sky Diving is, sadly the concept fails to deliver thanks to clunky motion sensing.
  8. More depth and some playability, magically matched to a worthwhile control system is what is required here.
  9. 30
    Go! Sports Skydiving is slightly better than Go! Sports Ski. 'Nuff said.
  10. Sky Diving is a desperately-made product which shouldn't have been made at all. This game is a good argument against the movement controls of the Sixaxis. Too bad it's a downloadable product. Else we would have thrown it out of a plane... without a parachute.

    Was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the game, it took me a good few hours to get thoroughly hooked but since I downloaded it years ago it's easily the game I've invested the most hours in on my PS3. Has definitely shown me that PSN is superior to XBLA in terms of engrossing titles. Full Review »
