    Pilotwings 64 is somewhat a decent game...

    To start off with, the graphics seemed to have some flaws, noted that this is a Nintendo 64. I was at least expecting a game with more decent graphics. I'm not saying the graphics are terrible, I think the company that m... Read Full Review

    An underrated classic.

    In September of 1996, the Nintendo 64 was finally released in the U.S. Along with the amazing system came (unfortunately) only two launch titles. Of course everybody remembers Super Mario 64. After all, the idea of seein... Read Full Review

    I enjoyed it for a couple of minutes & then forgot I had it.

    Pilot wings was one of those games that I was happy I had a friend to lend it to me rather than buy it myself. To me I felt this game was lame & was not my cup of tea. Story- Well, You're just jumping from airplanes, ... Read Full Review

    Pilot wings 64 a great game but insanely hard flying the hand glider in small tight areas.

    Pilot wings 64 was very enjoying to the kind heart, but hand gliding through the skies and looking for winds can be a mighty pain. Pilot wings 64 had some enjoying landscape that had you gasping sometimes, but only on th... Read Full Review

    If you liked Superman 64, you'll love Pilotwings.

    Especially if you liked the levels of Superman64 where you flew threw those god forsaken RINGS, because that's pretty much what this entire game consists of...flying through rings. BUT, admittedly this game does somehow... Read Full Review

    One-of-a-kind experience. Flying fun, simply stated.

    How much complaining can there be about a 3D game where you can traverse the skies in a gyrocopter, rocketpack, hang-glider, as a sky diver, or get shot out of a cannon? This is good stuff, people. Okay, the music soun... Read Full Review

    One of the forgotten great games on the N64

    When the great games of the Nintendo 64 are brought up this title is rarely, if ever, mentioned. However, it deserves a great ammount of appreciation. At the time graphics like this were unheard of and the detailed world... Read Full Review

    A good flight game being a reflex test for the surgeon en devenir, despite some clumsiness

    The sole companion title of Mario 64 at the console's release date, Pilotwings still delivers tight semi-cartoony flight sims stressing the player to successive challenges of sky diving for an overall satisfying fun fact... Read Full Review

    PW 64 was designed to demonstrate the power of the once-mighty N64 to the general public; but at the end, Paradigm and Nintendo was able to make a great game out of this "demo". PW64 is a simulator, yes, most of the obj... Read Full Review
