    Sky Force: Reloaded was a game that truly surprised me. Despite being several years old, everything feels modern and polished. While it can be challenging, it never deterred me from playing thanks to brilliant design choices that kept me motivated rather than frustrated. It’s an easy game to recommend and one that I see coming back to for a long time to come.

    More importantly, the developers did a good job with the color palette of the ship, the background, enemies, and gunfire, so that it’s always easy for the player to keep track of where they are on the screen.

    Sky Force Reloaded is a game that perfectly combines old-school shoot 'em ups with innovation. If you like the genre and you want a game that is challenging and adapted to current times, it is without a doubt a very interesting title to keep in mind in the Switch's library.

    For the price tag attached to it, Sky Force Reloaded is the perfect antidote for Nintendo Switch fans that love this genre. As long as you came here in order to experience a pretty basic, and grind-heavy (but immensely addictive) vertical shoot 'em up, where the only modern thing about it is its graphical update, then you simply cannot go wrong!

    Sky Force Reloaded brings forth a good gameplay experience and a cooperative mode that works very well, fans of the 2D shooter genre will certainly find something that will entertain them here. Pity that compared to its mobile counterpart, Sky Force Reloaded on the Nintendo Switch feels way too expensive than it should.

    The combination of 2D gameplay with 3D objects and some voxel based items and power ups seems like a blend of distinct styles waiting to go wrong but it works well and runs great. Some of the in game spoken commentary as you’re taking down loads of enemies and the rescuing people aspect reminds me of Resogun. Sky Force Reloaded isn’t the best shmup on the Switch but it is a very nice port of a good game.

    While not terrible, Sky Force Reloaded asks too much of the player with too little to give back. With some reworking to the exorbitant grind, I would maybe recommend this, but there are far better shoot 'em ups on the Switch that deserve your time and attention.

The graphics are modern but the gameplay is classic vertical shooter. The upgrade system is not overly complicated either. There is a grind to progress in the story, but I find that fun!!! Expand

    Sky Force - идеальная консольная игра, именно такими и должны быть игры для телека. Ты можешь включить её на 30 минут и отлично отдохнуть. Красивая, динамичная, не требующая от тебя изучения замысловатых механик и правил. Посадил рядом друга, зажал триггер на джойстике и кайфанул! Спасибо!

    Not ideal port. Loading times are quite long. And for some unexplainable reason there is no restart button after unsuccesfull run. Which isNot ideal port. Loading times are quite long. And for some unexplainable reason there is no restart button after unsuccesfull run. Which is very unpleasant on its own but combine it with long loading scenes and need for grind and you get really tedious experience. This one tiny feature which is present in every game (restart button) makes game quite unpleasant to play Expand

    This game looks really good. It plays...okay; nothing great, nothing terrible. However, the slow, slow grind to get through it completelyThis game looks really good. It plays...okay; nothing great, nothing terrible. However, the slow, slow grind to get through it completely destroys the experience. It's like it's still a free to play game with the developers forcing you to spend stars instead of actually enjoying yourself. It also becomes very boring once your ship gets more powerful as earlier levels become super easy - but you still have to go through them again and again to get all the medals. Real shame since it could have been solid, but the grind makes it a complete nightmare. Avoid. Expand
