Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy is a hot new title that brings dogfights to an entire new level. Where most flight games miss, this one from Namco Bandai comes through in a big way. Sure, the story is a bit wonky and some of the off in the background visuals are nothing to write home about, but I for one am not big on storyline and when in the thick of it I'm focusing on the stunning graphics right in front of me. Plus, I just want action and this surpasses expectations and that, my friend, is something to write home about.
Air combat has always been a fantasy of mine. From the old dogfight movies to the new generation of flicks with CGI and truly unbelievable stunts, there is just something about it that is romantic, in a tough way. This is where Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy shines. The air-to-air combat is super intense and it amazes me that so much can be going on and somehow the game engine doesn't skip a beat. It truly brings a console like experience that I don't expect from mobile devices. (more...)
