About the product
- Along with the Nunchuk/Wii Remote configuration Nintendo's Classic and GameCube controllers are also supported.
- 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 where the flight direction stick is simulated by the Nunchuk, while the Wii Remote is titled up to accelerate and down to decelerate in its role as the throttle.
- 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.
- The game's deep story told through animated cutscenes and in-game sequences of a world so depraved that it needs war to thrive. This alternate reality is brought to life further through voiced in-game sequences during combat.

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.

I'm impressed with the graphics and the multi-layered aspect of the game. You are placed in a story line with full briefings on your missions ahead of time. When you complete missions there is sometimes a mini-movie that advances the story line.
There are a number of features to the flying, including being able to execute a move to get behind an opponent.
Some missions are non-combat but it is basically a combat game. You spar with other airplanes and some missions have you taking out ground or naval targets. Once you've completed a mission you can "free play it" any time you want. As you move through missions you unlock more planes and weapons.
The gameplay is pretty good, and the story is alright. The controls are better and more enjoyable with a Classic Controller, in my opinion. There are some minuscule flaws, like the explosions. When I began playing, I expected something a little more violent and reactive. Instead, they kind of look like explosions off from a stock iMovie effect. But its a Wii, so I wouldn't expect it to be a powerhouse of sorts. All in all, its fun to play.
The controls on this take a little getting used to, but, once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to fly. You can even do fancy maneuvers with the touch of a button. The story line is shallow, and basically irrelevant to the game play, but that's not important to me.
You can play the whole game at easy, normal and hard levels, and choose missions individually, if you like.
This is a fun game to pick up when you feel like flying around and shooting for a while, but it's not hard to put down when it's time to go back to the real world.
If one finds it a bit difficult to play with remote and nunchuk, you can easily play it using classic controller.
