  1. Aegis Wing is a pretty decent looking and sounding 2D side-scrolling shooter with a nice twist on co-op multiplayer. The free price tag somewhat makes up for the lack of ship variation and small number of levels.
  2. It’s an excellent diversion when you just want to play something simple and fun with your friends for an hour or two.

    Despite being a bit basic in its presentation, Aegis Wing is a fun shooter for any group that can work together. [Sept 2007, p.69]
  4. There’s no question that Aegis Wing is fun and challenging, but it would be a hard sell if it wasn’t a giveaway.
  5. Yes, it’s free. It’s also repetitive, tedious, unambitious and boring. You know how they say “time is money”? Don’t spend your time on this game.

    This is a very basic, very rubbish side-scrolling shooter with some knobs on. [Aug 2007, p.92]

    The levels that you fly through have all been seen a hundred times before. [Issue 28, p.118]

The plot's very basic, the controls are what you'd expect from a horizontal shoot-em-up, and there are a few features that are interesting (you have a health bar, power-ups have limited use, etc.). However, everything else about this game reminds you that this IS a free game. The backgrounds are uninteresting, the enemies are your basic fly-in-formation enemies, music's nothing special and it's fairly short (as to be expected from shooters of this type). For a free game, it's decent, but there are far better shooters on XBLA. Only die-hard shoot-em-up fans should bother with this game. Full Review »
