The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces - Wii

After decades of constant war and fighting, the world has finally come to a lasting peace. But with war being an integral part of their lives for so long, the citizens of the world are desperate for a solution to solve this newfound peaceful life of calm and tranquility. To ease this tension and to appease its citizens, the government has started pursuing a new round of wars. These new campaigns are not a power struggle between hostile countries, but rather sponsored events between private corporations with military-trained personnel contracted by each side to do their biding for them. It is the battles fought by these corporations such as Rostock and Lautern and the constant media reports on them that satisfy and replace the basic human instinct to fight using the war as a show. The latest rookie pilot to join the Sky Crawlers, codenamed “Lynx,” is working his way up the ranks and becomes involved in a secret new military project with the goal of making pilots immortal. Join Lynx on his journey to conquer the skies while unraveling the mystery behind the military’s covert new project. The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces is the latest flight simulation game from Project Aces, the development team behind the Ace Combat series. Holding the Nunchuk in the right hand as the flight control stick and the Wii Remote in the left hand as the throttle, the unique controls of the Wii are fully utilized to simulate the controls of sitting in an actual cockpit. The somber story of a world that needs war to survive is told with a combination of animated cut-scenes and voiced in-game sequences during battle.

Key Game Features

  • New Aerial Combat Game from the Creators of Ace Combat – Project Aces, the foremost developer of action-based flight simulation games and the team behind the Ace Combat series, brings their expert knowledge of intense aerial combat to Wii.
  • Innovative Controls Place the Player into the Cockpit – The flight control stick is simulated by the Nunchuk which is tilted to roll, pitch, and yaw, while the Wii Remote is titled up to accelerate and down to decelerate in its role as the throttle.
  • Beautiful Landscape and Realistic Sound FX – All the minor details of the aerial combatants are visible against a gorgeous landscape, while the realistic sound effects further immerse the player into an actual aerial dogfight.
  • Deep Story Told Through Animated Cutscenes and In-Game Sequences – A world so depraved that it needs war to thrive, this alternate reality is brought to life with animated cutscenes and voiced in-game sequences during combat.
  • Additional Controller Configurations – Nintendo's Classic and GameCube controllers are also supported.

Good fun September 15, 2013
Reviewer: K. Thompson  
The controls take just a tiny bit of getting used to, but after about two minutes I was having a blast! I neglected to even look at the manual before I played so I was missing out on some of the controls. Just skim the manual and you should have a lot of fun with this game.

Quirky but ok July 8, 2013
Reviewer: Kw4nikon  
This game doesn't quite know what it wants to be. It's an exciting fighter plane game with propeller-driven airplanes, which makes you think of WWII, but it includes some more high tech gadgets. The most useful gadget is the feature that allows you to automatically manuver the plane behind the opponent's plane. That's cool, but unrealistic. And you can't move up very far unless you use this feature. It's a Japanese game with Japanese person and place names, even though the map locations are shown in Europe. There is also this lame story associated with the game. At least you can skip the story if you want.
It's essentially a good fighter-plane game designed for teens. The graphics are very good. But the story and technical gimmics are contrived. I feel it wanted to be a WWII fighter game but was afraid to be one.

Pretty much what you would expect June 19, 2013
Reviewer: Eclectic Quad  
As the title states, this is pretty much what you would expect from Namco's Project Aces team (the same team behind the Ace Combat series on the PS/PS2). For me personally, I would prefer the movie cut scenes excised altogether & just stick with the gameplay. This however does not deter from the enjoyment. I won't call this game a "life changing experience", but I will say that it is as high of quality as you can expect for a dogfighter on the Wii.

Not exactly what I hoped. May 2, 2013
Reviewer: Volks Kamerad  
No where near to the quality of other Namco Project Aces games. Gameplay is sound, and enjoyable, story telling is short, and very poor. With less than half the cutscenes per mission you find yourself grinding out fill in missions with no real great story background or effort at all hardly at progressing the game outside of filling in to make this already short game some what longer. Though it is a Wii game I would of thought the standards for story progression would be higher. Gameplay and music is sound, graphics are fine, slightly less than a PS2 Project Aces game, but again it is a Wii. It is really a game for someone who really enjoys The Sky Crawlers, if you also liked Project Aces games then it is something you may want to look into, since it is the only Project Aces game which does not involved firing walls of missiles.
