    Ello,
    Think i'm probably being stupid but how do you open your parachute to land when doing landings?
    Cheers

    Oh my. I just watched a vid. It looks like a cross between Monkey target and Pilotwings.

    I have to have a PS3 this afternoon.

    I had a quick go last night, its pretty good.
    the landing part appears slightly better than the skydiving/formation part, but thats mainly due to having to use the motion thingy.
    There are licences to complete and a good amount of offline and online stuff too.

    I think this game is ace.

    The 'formation' bit of the game is a bit like that Wii Play game where you have to rotate the person to match the shape, but with much nicer graphics and 3d movement.

    The 'landing' bit of the game starts with acrobatic stunts and then you pull your parachute and have to land in a target. It's crazy difficult, but it seems like you'd get better with practice.

    The tutorials for both game modes are a must though.

    Also has excellent use of rumble for any DualShock 3 owners out there.

    you are definitely NOT stupid, this game is completely impenetrable, if I hadn't read the post from others on here I never would have known how to open my parachute, it also seems slow and awkward... please tell me its gets better once you get into it!?

    Trailers look sweet.

    However, Little Big Planet and Sky diving do not a PS3 warrant.

  • Deleted user 9 February 2008 12:55:28
    It appears to be PART way to being a next gen Pilot Wings, which is certainly a *good* thing.

    i agree but is it any good?

    just read a review and it sounds okayish for 3.49.

    but i think i might buy pixeljunk monsters instead.

    Are you REALLY agonising over (what I`ve read above) is a 3.49 PSN game ?

    normally i wouldn't give two hoots but this is a pilotwings spin off (ish) and that series is golden and beatiful to me, i don't want to ruin it in one fair swoop of 3.49

    I kind of like this, but it is very hard, and I would appreciate more flying time!

    4 Player Multiplayer is my biggest motivation for this, haven't had 3 chaps over yet to test it.

    Sky Diving is ace, it's not a Pilotwings spin off, it's a fast paced arcade game where you have to rack up high scores. Then there's Landing mode....I suppose part of that has similarities to Pilotwings. Man, that's hard though.

    Also: Pixel Junk Monsters is also fantastic. I'm not sure why people are hesitating over 3.49, just don't buy a sandwich and a coffee one day or something!
