    Project Wingman may well be the most frustrating game I’ve ever unabashedly loved by making me feel like the hotshot pilot I’ve never been, and the only price I have to pay is a little bit of my sanity every time I die and remember that there aren’t any checkpoints.

    With a variety of missions to choose from at each stage and in-depth customization options, Project Wingman also tests the player’s intelligence in creating synergistic builds and risk-reward assessments. Aside from a multiplayer mode, which this game sadly lacks, this is one of the best infinitely replayable jet-fighter game modes I’ve ever seen.

    I think I’ve sunk about 250 hours into Ace Combat 7. Most of that was spent just endlessly replaying the campaign with as many different aircraft as were available. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to play Project Wingman for quite as long, but given how I’ve lost sleep all week just so I could play one more mission, I suspect I might come close.

    The mission design as well as some mechanical weaknesses sometimes kill the mood. But presentation and the dogfights are top-notch – especially in VR.

    Project Wingman is an indie aerial combat game that could easily be mistaken for a AAA title. If playing a flight shooter in VR on PC is your dream, look no further. However, with repetitive gameplay and a story that’s difficult to understand, Project Wingman just doesn’t feel exhilarating enough to make it enjoyable for the casual player.

    Project Wingman is not scared of being the indie Ace Combat copy, and it is that brave approach by the developers to replicate something they enjoy that makes it a recommendation for anyone who loves taking to the skies.

    Outside of VR, Project Wingman really is the Ace Combat spinoff fans have always dreamed of. If you just have a gamepad and want to feel like you’re in Top Gun without needing to learn aerodynamics, you’ll have a lot of fun. In VR it’s still playable with a gamepad, but that ruins the immersion for the most part. Project Wingman is still a good game, but the shaky VR support drags everything down significantly.

Campaign is pretty good and conquest mode adds a lot of replayability. Controls are satisfying, and effects are gorgeous (Explosions!!).

    Hard to believe this was a 2-man team behind this.

    The game is a little rough around the edges at times (the end product is still over and above, considering its dev team size), overall it plays beautifully and is extremely fun.

    Project wingman scratches an itch that I've had for VR flight action since it was announced for PS4 Ace Combat. This is a full fat VR gameProject wingman scratches an itch that I've had for VR flight action since it was announced for PS4 Ace Combat. This is a full fat VR game made by 2 people with a solid but not groundbreaking story and fun characters and boss fights. Graphically, this game is very impressive for such a small effort.

    There are some bugs, that the developers are scrambling to fix as I type this review. This is not a perfect product, and could have spent another month or so on bug fixes. However, the bugs are non game effecting and did not detract from the experience in any meaningful way.

    I'll summarize like this: Ace Combat 7, which heavily inspired this game, is like a ribeye at a 5 star restaurant. It's immaculate, made by the chef who's been making it for years and has it to a cold science of spices and flavors. Project Wingman is a New York Strip from your favorite hometown diner. It's not as perfect and immaculate, but it comes with a care and warmth that can only come from a passion for the product. Easy recommendation for any fan of the genre.

When I try to start the campaign, and get to the plane selection before a mission, my cursor disappears, and the sensitivity skyrockets for some reason, and I just can't even get the mouse to where it needs to go. I tried with gamepad, and same issue with it as well... Expand
