  1. Up to four players, each with a copy of the game, can have more fun with the five multiplayer modes.
  2. It's not a very deep game; it's kind of ugly, and the story is flat out stupid. But Heatseeker can be fun in small doses--especially if you don't mind taking down wave after wave of enemies, level after level.
  3. If you’re a wannabe pilot who doesn’t mind navigating through a storm of mediocrity, you could do a lot worse. But you could also do a lot better. That, friends, is blandness in a nutshell.

    Dogfights are relatively basic, as you’ll usually be able to target and obliterate enemy fighters well before they’re in range, and when you do get into heated fights it can be a bit of a pain due to the PSP version’s less-maneuverable feel.
  5. A once-fine example of dogfighting laid low by its transition to PSP, Heatseeker isn't bad, but neither is it anywhere near brilliant. [July 2007, p.93]
  6. 45
    It's not that Heatseeker is a horrible game; it just never aspires to be anything more than an average one.
  7. Exciting enough in short sorties, Heatseeker can't really compete with the big boys due to repetitive action, limited multiplayer options and outdated presentation.
