Pilotwings Resort :: Nintendo 3DS Game Review

Nintendo's multi-aerial tour of Wahu island is super relaxing. But is this resort so relaxing that it becomes a snorefest?

Pilotwings Resort is a launch title for the new Nintendo 3DS and it has us revisit the Mii island of Wahu, which you may remember from games like Wii Sports Resort. In Pilotwings, however, we will be enjoying the view of the island from the air as we fly, glide, jetpack, parachute, and more.

From Way Up in the Sky...

When you start off in Pilotwings, you can only fly a simple plane, hang glide, or jetpack around. However, as you play more, you will unlock more modes, challenges, and ways of taking control of the skies. Modes include flying through rings and landing on a specific area.

Each method of flight has unique features and tricks that you'll need to keep in mind as you fly around, keeping the game interesting. Additionally, the 3D graphics works really well in this game, helping you to figure out exactly where the rings are. You move pretty slowly in the game, which makes it easy to maintain the 3D effect.

...Everything Seems so Insignificant

Pilotwings Resort is a very easy going and light game. There is no story or other motivation to progress through the game other than your personal drive for perfection in each of the game's challenges. There is also quite a bit to unlock and each unlock will give you something slightly different to do or try out. However, for the most part, this is a slow-paced game.

Overall, the game is very clean and polished, but it is definitely not very exciting. Pilotwings Resort seems more like a glorified tech demo in this regard. If you are a fan of games like Endless Ocean, you will enjoy this game. However, if you are looking for something with a bit more action and moves at a faster pace, you should wait until Kid Icarus comes out.
