Skies of Fury DX is a beautiful and fun flight simulator. With its historic story and stunning visuals style, this is a must play on the Switch. After seeing the word victory across the screen once you finish a mission, it’s hard not to play just one more
Got this game because of reviews and glad to say they weren't wrong - Skies of Fury is a gem! Looks great, sounds great, and controls great. The only thing not so great about it is questionable replayability - I am not sure how long the campaigns are going to keep my attention. However, I've got a chance to try out 4 player local multiplayer over the weekend and I think it might be my favourite part of the game! The atmosphere actually reminded me a bit of the golden days of N64 and playing Goldeneye for hours on the couch... Probably best spent CAD$25 in the eShop so far!
Featuring a stunning visual environment, a long lifespan that will keep players coming back to it, accurate and fine tuned controls and a very well designed multiplayer mode, not to mention a wide amount of unlockable content, it's safe to say that Skies of Fury DX is a choice that will make many players happy.
Despite that glaring lack of online multiplayer - and a slightly awkward off-screen targeting system - Skies Of Fury DX brings a new slice of fun, fast and furious dogfighting to Nintendo Switch. Whether you’re playing on your own through its 100 campaign missions or shooting your friend’s biplane to smithereens in local multiplayer, it’s one of the best new additions to Switch’s digital library and further proof - if any were needed - that Nintendo’s handheld is the best portable platform there is.
I enjoyed my time with Skies of Fury DX and will pick it up whenever I'm in the mood for some arcade-style dogfight action. In the end, I'm looking forward to seeing what the developers come up with next.
Skies of Fury DX will surprise a lot of players, given a seemingly paradoxical situation where the game is simultaneously a mobile port and a polished, satisfying experience. Still, if repetition is an issue for you, then Skies of Fury is one of the worst games your money can buy. The amazing gameplay is the key here: if you enjoy that, and do not mind playing a handful of very similar missions over and over, then Skies of Fury DX will treat you well.
The gameplay loop is kind of awful but piloting an airplane and shooting others out of the sky is really satisfying, especially as they fall to the earth trailing black smoke before they explode into dozen pieces. What Skies of Fury DX lacks in stuff to do, it almost makes up for it in playability.
Very nice addition to the Switch as the platform was lacking sim/action type shooters. The game has a really attractive cel-shaded type art style. Game has different mission types including regular dogfighting, escort missions and obstacle course missions. Combat mechanics are well done, the clouds as a feature for hiding/chasing adds variety and a lot of depth to the combat experience. Nice bonus that loot boxes are not micro-transactions and feature various skins and upgrades. I love the formation flying, very cool feature.
No online, but features a local multiplayer of up to 4 players in a pvp or co-op mode. A lot of fun and adds some needed dimension to the game experience. Hopefully online is something to be added in the future, as this game is primed for online play.
Skill tree allows you to upgrade your pilot and take those upgrades with you as you progress through the aircraft. Would have loved to see boss type levels or some takeoff/landing challenges but overall, delivers on the dog-fighting experience very nicely.
Overall, a solid win for the Switch and at $20, good value for the price of admission.
Great game that reminds me of the red baron game from the atari lynx. Graphics are the hand drawn type and are gorgeous. Only thing missing would be online play if nintendo ever figures that out. A couple things developer should add/ change: please give me a cockpit view! Also the way you have to go back and individually open the free loot boxes is lame.
Very good game! 100x more better than smartphone version! I've bought Sky Rogue too and... Skies of Fury is done much better. OK - maybe I'm not a fan indie games, I know graphics is not all but this game looks very good, I've spend several hours with this cool game. Very good thing - HD Rumble in action!
Arcade style WW1 biplane shooter. Plenty of add ons and skin mods from XP points and loot boxes. Great way to kill hours without noticing. The game does get a bit repetitive and the ever dreaded escort missions appear quite often.
If you're looking for a fun and visually appealing flight/dogfight simulator to play on your Switch, then I think you would like Skies of Fury DX. The time I spent with the game before the fifth chapter was a lot of fun. It has a cool RPG mechanic that makes you feel like you’re progressing through the game. Moreover, though they were delivered in a weird free loot box way, some of the skins of the planes look awesome! Bare in mind though, that the mission in the game become repetitive fast and flat out frustrating towards the end. If I was to buy the game, I would wait for a sale.
