Pilotwings Resort Nintendo 3DS ReviewPosted on 2011-05-03 20:18:30 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Pilotwings as a series is an interesting one. First launched on the Super Nintendo system, the game is either derided or loved by each gamer with a Nintendo console. The fact is that the older games were hard, incredibly hard in fact; so difficult that you could get stuck for hours on end with nothing to do just trying to beat one challenge. However, for many gamers that is what made the game so appealing and when we heard that it was coming to 3DS with 3D graphics we were excited. However, we also had a worry that given the casual market that Nintendo now targets, it would be toned down and unfortunately this is only the beginning of its problems.
In Pilotwings 3DS you visit Wuhu Island (which many of you may remember from Wii Sports Resort) and have to complete a number of challenges in various different aircraft to progress. This is a great setting for the game and those who have played Wii Sports Resort will recognise many of the landmarks such as the Volcano and tunnels which are present on the island.
