  • Summary: In MySims SkyHeroes, players take to the sky to lead the resistance against Morcubus and his drone army and to stop his plans to take over the skyways. Starting as an unknown pilot, players fight to become a celebrated hero as they defeat dangerous enemies in aerial combat, test their reflexes in fast-paced speed challenges, and take on massive enemy bosses that demand all their skills as a pilot to survive. As they progress, players build, customize and tune their aircraft to give them an edge in combat – upgrade wings for swifter maneuvers, switch out the engine for a speed boost, or change the paint job to camouflage the plane and avoid enemy fire.

    Despite not being an ambitious game, we have liked a lot this MySims SkyHeroes. It is a direct and fun game that allows anyone to play without complications.
  2. Though the mission variety is decent, you're still essentially doing one of two things: dogfights or racing. That being said, it's a great package that offers real value when played with friends.

    MySims Sky Heroes proudly mantains the franchise's tradition of easy-to-learn, fun gameplay that takes place in a world brimming with personality. It's too bad that the mission structure in the story mode is annoying, but the rest of the modes make up for its faults.
  4. My Sims SkyHeroes falls short of our expectations. It could have been such a cool game, but the lame storyline, the bad multiplayer modus and the missing Wii control integration are quite disappointing.

    MySims SkyHeroes is a serviceable racer and dogfighter, but there's nothing really special about it.
  6. 60
    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.
  7. 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.

    Yet another entry in the MySims series of games released to the Wii, SkyHeroes completes the departure from the series' building roots. Unlike in MySims or is sequel, Kingdom, SkyHeroes only allows the player to customize his or her plane, with a few minor modifications to the plane's performance as a result. There is no worldcrafting in this game, and no worthwhile changes to make in any way. The heart of this game is air combat, and the dogfighting game that is the core of SkyHeroes is woefully underdeveloped. The mechanics of dogfighting are weak, with limited control. The story is tissue-thin and unengaging, and although the missions ostensibly are different from one another, they generally fall into one of only a few categories. Once a particular mission type has been played, there's nothing to be gained from future missions of the same type; the only thing that will change is the scenery...and difficulty. SkyHeroes is extremely uneven in its difficulty, with missions that are absurdly easy and ridiculously difficult occasionally following one another. Overall, SkyHeroes is a weak game. The shameless use of the MySims series name to promote this turkey, however, makes it all the weaker. Expand
