    My initial thought towards the renewed interest in Windjammers was little more than a fun, limited time joke. Only after emerging victorious against fake international flying disc enthusiasts and human players did I get why the game received the attention it did. For something made over twenty years ago, it still has legs and the entertainment value to stay in the consciousness of new gamers and those that still play cash games of Warlords to this day. A wonderful relic of the past (seeing the Data East logo pop-up after all these years brought a tear to my eye), Windjammers is an awesome and unique sports game that, having survived semi-obscurity, might have the cache to become a staple of modern competitive gaming.

    An arcade masterpiece that’s been lovingly revived for the PlayStation family, Windjammers is absolutely essential. A hoot both online and offline, hoofing Frisbees across sunbaked beaches is still fun 20 years removed from the title's original release, so here’s to another two decades of top tossing.

    Make no mistake, Windjammers’ biggest strength is in its fun and addictive gameplay. It cuts through the white noise and just delivers some fast-paced, super competitive action that anyone can pick up and play.

    Windjammers is still a lot of fun, and if you add online modes, then you can spend hours and hours playing it. It would've been nice to have some extra features, though.

    In the end, Windjammers is a mechanically interesting experience that still feels fresh 23 years after its release, but this PS4 edition doesn’t include much to enhance the original. As it stands, Windjammers is enjoyable for an afternoon with friends, but it doesn’t offer much to hook players for the long term.

    Windjammers is the same fun game released 23 years ago on Neo-Geo, with the exception of the new online mode formula. Once again gives it’s best if played with other gamers, but the price is a little too high compared with the actual available contents.

    As DotEmu already accomplished with several comebacks of classic games, Winjammers, which costs $15 for a PS4/Vita Cross-Buy game, should offer more extras and a true visual overhaul. It is a 1994's game but with online and small extras. And even if it still works pretty well and will be many parties main attraction, it has that feel of a game whose main selling point is nostalgia.

Unfortunately, the PS4 port (while sturdy) is only a must-have for hardcore fans. Besides the base game, there are just a few bonus extras. A few mini-games have been added along with the option to play online. Visually, you can choose between two ratio aspects, add scanlines, use a CCR monitor filter or borders. Also, there are two musical soundtracks, the original arcade version or an upgraded remix. Gameplay is simple, but strategic and lots of fun. If you absolutely loved Windjammers back in the day, this is the best way to play it. Overall, I would rate it with a 7.6 out of 10. Expand
