    An amazing title, this is a great work of Square Enix and Microsoft, because no much games about spaceships exist on Xbox, and this is a great option a biggest title. Project Sylpheed: Arc of Deception is amazing.

    What a wonderful game! Space Battles with great graphics and precise control, and a story that is very well made with great-looking cutscenes. It requires that you put some time into the game mechanics, but once you have mastered this, the rest is pure enjoyment.

    This game is a welcome addition to a barren genre. The arcade flight scene is in need of new blood and this game delivers. The game uses it setting to stage some breathtaking battles, the backgrounds and set pieces all go along way to making it all believable. Its anime like story take full advantage of the pacing keeping the action moving never feeling slow and never feeling too fast orThis game is a welcome addition to a barren genre. The arcade flight scene is in need of new blood and this game delivers. The game uses it setting to stage some breathtaking battles, the backgrounds and set pieces all go along way to making it all believable. Its anime like story take full advantage of the pacing keeping the action moving never feeling slow and never feeling too fast or unending either. It always states what needs to be done upfront and the time it take is down to the player. Unlike other game on Xbox 360 this doesn't sport multiplayer in any capacity and it doesn't need sure it would have been fun to fly with a friend but this game make a serious case for singleplayer only games.

  1. Despite a lack of online play, Project Sylpheed is as good a space shooter as you are likely to find. Its perfect balance of depth and accessibility really pushes the game to the forefront of the genre.

    Even with solid controls and a nice set of FMV movie sequences, the bland mission design and its oft annoying nature make the whole experience largely forgettable.
  3. It’s a lot of the same thing, with a load of space battles awaiting your arrival. It doesn’t take long for you to become frustrated and perhaps even bored by the repetitive action.
