    Not bad for a game where an adult and a kid can play together or take turns on "missions". It will frustrate you if you think it is a flight simulator. It is not. You use the Wii remote aim the planes. This game is good family entertainment. And it is on that level that I give it a fairly high mark.

    Anyone who plays a lot of high end video games will not find this one very challenging

    A little short, but the game is fun once you understand that you need to be gentle with the wiimote. I feel the game has been very hard done by in the reviews I have seen, fixating on why chickens are flying planes (who cares - it's on a Nintendo platform what did you expect?). The graphics aren't as bad as people make out, jast lacking in that bit of extra detail you might A little short, but the game is fun once you understand that you need to be gentle with the wiimote.

  1. Heralded by some as a potential "Pilotwings" replacement, this is in no way as deep, clever or fun. Naff missions tackled in a vehicle not even remotely handling like a plane. [JPN Import]
  2. The graphics of Wing Island are anything but stellar. They look like first generation Dreamcast graphics without any hint of animation. Wing Island is a sad sad place. [JPN Import]

    Navigating your too-large cartoon plane among clunky cliffs and bluffs is akin to playing in a world of giant Duplo bricks. [Apr 2007, p.82]
