Pilotwings Resort (3DS)

Many people slated this a bit on the run-up to the 3DS launch, saying it was pretty and fun and everything but very short and having just one location was rubbish. Reviews suggested you’d get all of three hours fun out of it, and then want to trade it in. I bought it because I got it for £9.90, which I thought was a fair price to pay for 3 hours of 3DS game.

Now, almost 10 hours in, I’m wondering just exactly how good these reviewers must be in order to 100% it in 3 hours.

I’ve unlocked all the difficulties, sure, but I’ve not started Platinum yet. Or got higher than 2 stars on most previous missions. Many are still 1 star. None are perfect. I still have to find some stuff in Free Flight mode too. So I’ve easily got another few hours – maybe even another 10 – left to go.

As a result, I think I’d be happy having got this for more than I paid for it. It’s an excellent game, and the 3D works really well. In fact, for a lot of the game it’s pretty much essential, as it aids judging speed and distance better than any on-screen gauges or markers could in 2D.

Best of all – HAPPY BLUE SKY GAMING! YAY!
