    Addictive missions and good customisation combine to make a game full of fun. [Issue#232, p.94]

    The game is very decent, but definitely could have been better.

    Like its previous offshoots, MySims SkyHeroes feels like a "lite" version of other, stronger games. In this case, players feel like they're playing a watered-down version of Crimson Skies for the original Xbox.

    This game is great for young gamers. The graphics are colorfull and the animations are fun. The game is nice to play and it got a lot of variety. The singleplayer is perfect for everyone, but it's sad to see there's nobody online.
  5. As a solid, enjoyable aerial Mario Kart alternative, this is a pleasant surprise, especially if you're someone who finds Simlish consistently hilarious. [Issue#51, p.109]

    MySims SkyHeroes is a serviceable racer and dogfighter, but there's nothing really special about it.
  7. Despite having some decent multiplayer options, MySims SkyHeroes has a weak single player mode, and will be frustrating to younger players.

    This game is only worth trying if you are a hardcore Sims-fan. Every other player should be warned: the game is mind-numbing.
  9. Think Mario Kart meets Crimson Skies. In Mysims Sky Heroes you will find yourself competing in races as well as shooting other enemies in dog fights. It's a fun concept, but after a while it gets boring because of the lack of variation.

    MySims SkyHeroes is made especially for children and they'll love the gameplay. This game is definitely not for you if you're not a child and enjoy a little more action.
  11. The older gamers will find it a little too slow-paced, but My Sims Skyheroes still has some appeal for younger ones. It's a light and enjoyable plane game for kids to enjoy either solo or with their friends, even though we'd hoped for a more inspired design for a broader appeal.

    It's quite dreadfully competent, sufficiently more-ish that you're in danger of forgetting that you could do better, like a packet of supermarket brand tortillas.
  13. What starts out as a simple but entertaining aerial jaunt quickly becomes monotonous and shallow, making it hard to justify its price tag.

    MySims SkyHeroes, offers an accessible take on the air combat genre for the younger gamer. However, its repetitive mission play and confusing progression system makes Sky Heroes a difficult game to stick with, even for its intended audience.
  15. By trying to touch everything, the MySims saga scatters a little […] The world is still appealing but this new episode seems more like a draft with its numerous game design flaws.
  16. MySims SkyHeroes is just another game out there that does nothing special in it's delivery.

    Reviews for this game are fairly accurate. The flying controls are not exciting and sometimes I feel like its on rails. I don't believe a child would be excited about it, even though thats might be the target audience. Get a game the whole family will love, like Mario Cart or Sonic Racing. Full Review »
