    The lack of narrative hasn't stopped me from pouring hours and hours into Sky Force Reloaded, and I don't doubt I'll put in a great many more—I have to perfect every level on Insane difficulty, after all. This is a game that doesn't do anything new, but it takes a classic genre and delivers on it so well that it's hard to fault the lack of innovation. If you have even the slightest interest in shoot 'em ups, this is a game you don't want to miss.

    I’m really surprised just how much I enjoyed Sky Force Reloaded, the first time I loaded it up I was playing it for five hours non-stop and at no point was I bored. Adding grind to a shoot ’em up sounds terrible but it’s a genius idea to counter the shoot ’em up’s traditionally short playtime. By adding the challenges, the act of replaying a level twenty or more times never gets boring. I am now going to bestow on Sky Force the highest honour I can give it: It reminds me of SWIV.

    Sky Force Reloaded is a pleasant surprise. It's a slightly repetitive, but always challenging experience that impresses with an unconventional progression system. Fans of Resogun need not doubt.

    Though not hugely different from its prequel, Sky Force Anniversary, Sky Force Reloaded nonetheless offers up a compelling slice of vertical scrolling shoot em’ up action that both newcomers and fans of the genre will undoubtedly enjoy.

    Sky Force Reloaded is a solid if unremarkable vertical shoot'em up, that capitalizes on the absence of similar titles on both Microsoft and Sony marketplaces. We had fun with it, especially with a friend locally, but that doesn't mean it is perfect. Still, a reasonable choice for fans of the genre.

    A great port of an excellent mobile game. It may not have the longevity of classics, but it's a hell of a blast while it lasts.

    Rescues and level subgoals add a lot of additional meat and challenge, but this is a very simple shmup. There is no interesting key gameplay mechanic, no waves of bullet hell, no fast speeds, and no interesting setting. In a world where Bug Princess is 13 years old, Ikaruga is 16 years old, and 1942 is 33 years old, there is absolutely no reason to play a shmup so basic.

    Sky Force makes me think of how fun arcade games used to be, it’s like a modern 1943 with all you would expect. The gameplay just aboutSky Force makes me think of how fun arcade games used to be, it’s like a modern 1943 with all you would expect. The gameplay just about flawless in terms of control, depth and replay ability. This shooter isn’t easy, but it is rewarding and incredibly fun. Equally smooth and brutal, if you die it’s because of you and you will die quite a bit. These guys added a bunch of cool new stuff to hunt down, new planes, parts, cards some are timed which increases the urgency. Genius. Co op is awesome. Best 10 bucks Ive dropped on the PlayStation store. Expand

    Looking at the COGconnected's review, I can say that they have played this game for only 5 minutes before shutting it off on Level 2. ThereLooking at the COGconnected's review, I can say that they have played this game for only 5 minutes before shutting it off on Level 2. There are four levels of difficulty, and beating the whole game on Normal won't be hard. Don't expect any Ikaruga on Insane or Nightmare difficulties, but this game won't let your fingers rest. Difficulty aside, given the fact that this game is a phone game port, it's visually stunning, especially on smartphones. Oh, and it's not that comfortable to hold your phone when it's close to 60°C after 15 minutes of playing. The music is awesome, and the fans of Chiptune genre will love it. If you're not sure whether to buy this game or not, give it a try on your phone for free, because having your own opinion is always better. Expand

After a couple of rounds and upgrading the ship - I would say it looks even more awesome on the PS4. Update = the latest PS patch fixed the missing Digitalcontroll. 10/10. Expand

    I do love those well crafted 'tiny' games with simple mechanics and well working upgrade structures up to the very end! And I've had more funI do love those well crafted 'tiny' games with simple mechanics and well working upgrade structures up to the very end! And I've had more fun and entertainment with this little shooter compared to those newest Tomb Raider or other AAA-Games installments polished for a wide (dumb) audience.

    It runs flawless, perfectly tuned over and over again. If you like classic plane arcade shooter - you love this! ;)

    I love this game, one of my favourite indies. If you like arcade shooters from back in the day, you'll like this modern version. Bought thisI love this game, one of my favourite indies. If you like arcade shooters from back in the day, you'll like this modern version. Bought this straight away after enjoying sky force anniversary(this has a few more features). It can be a bit grindy replaying levels to get enough stars to upgrade ship, but it's a fun grind rather than frustrating. Higher difficulty opens up when you complete the certain tasks of each mission. Many hours of play for the price and a game you can pop into for a short time. Expand
