    MySims SkyHeroes is a fun enough dog fighting and racing game that does what it sets out to do and manages to get by with simple graphics by sticking to a clean and cute look.

    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.

    Despite its negatives, MySims SkyHeroes does a good job at keeping the young and/or inexperienced player interested. Its solid level of customization and intuitive flight combat mechanics make it a worth checking out, but not at the current price point.

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

    MySims: Sky Heroes followed a formula that worked very well on a more kid friendly console. The title could have been ported well, but at a $50 price tag the game comes off as poorly developed and begs for a child audience.
  6. Despite having some decent multiplayer options, MySims SkyHeroes has a weak single player mode, and will be frustrating to younger players.

    While it's a quick-fix burst of fun, the fact SkyHeroes is a kids' game isn't an excuse to be this shallow. [Issue#66, p.98]

    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.
  9. SkyHeroes isn't bad, and we aren't getting a new Crimson Skies anytime soon, but don't rush out to buy this kid-skewed substitute. [Nov 2010, p.71]

    In the end, lacking mission variety and ridiculously heinous AI settings keep MySims SkyHeroes grounded.
  11. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Quite probably the most repellently cutesy kid's game ever to grace the Xbox. Coochie-poo! [Issue#98, p.105]

    The game really needs either a slower pace or better situational awareness.
