  1. Landit Bandit can wildly fluctuate between quirky fun and complete frustration, but if you don't mind a little turbulence, it's not a bad pick for $10.
  2. We're glad to have it wash up on our shores. [Sept 2010, p.119]
  3. It's often frustrating and lacks online multiplayer, but I still enjoyed playing it. Check it out for a change of pace but expect some turbulence in this PSN flight adventure.

    There's still something quite charming about this crazy little game. [Issue#195, p.103]
  5. Although there's a certain chaotic charm about it (especially the frenzied split-screen duels), the inherent repetition quickly has you raising an eyebrow at its rather off-putting price tag. For a tenner, you'd expect a lot more.
  6. Landit Bandit is quite short and it is limited to a few basic mechanics used to accomplish very similar tasks. The mechanics are solid enough to make it a taxing and entertaining distraction but you might be left wishing there was a little more substance and a bit more polish.

    As a quick time-waster on PSN, Landit Bandit mostly fails -- it's just too complex and difficult a game mechanic to offer a fun five-minute romp here and there.
  8. Landit Bandit is good at times, but it's also overly difficult and frustrating.
  9. Ferrying stuff between islands in a home built helicopter that uses real physics is a novel concept, but Landit Bandit sadly ends up feeling like a game that didn't get the development time or resources it really needed. The physics engine is very unforgiving, meaning that you'll crash your helicopter tons of times while attempting to land, and the missions are tedious and lack variation. The bar for indie releases is very high these days, and Landit Bandit just falls short.
  10. The controls are a mess, the difficulty is ridiculous on the default setting, and the game is just very aggravating to play.

    this game is awesome! The controls and even the missions that are inside of this game reminds me of an old school helicopter game, and i enjoyed every bit of it. Although thats because i enjoy my games to be simple and to this point, i do have to say that i dont think this game is for everybody. Full Review »

    This game is terrible. The controls are terrible and the art is like the a horrible version of the B.C. comic animated. It will frustrate you like only broken levels and controls can. The concept could be fun but it was executed by programmers that must hate you. Stay away! Full Review »
