The Video Game Critic
Windjammer's graphics are perfectly fine, but since the action is viewed from overhead, there's not much to see. Still, I love the court located on a bright beach, which gives the game a certain summer vibe. The other courts are more high-tech, including some with obstacles in the center that redirect the disc unpredictably. Windjammer's gameplay is fast and furious, with short but sweet 90-second matches. The electronic soundtrack has an old-school flair, and I also like the clanking sound effects of the disc bouncing off the metallic boundaries. As icing on the cake, a nifty bonus stage lets you control a dog chasing a Frisbee on a beach, jumping over sun-bathing babes in the process. My friends immediately took to Windjammers, unanimously proclaiming it to be an "A" title. My buddy Steve even called it "sponge-worthy", which is quite the accolade. Windjammers has remained under the radar for a long time, but I think it's about time for a coming-out party.
Un juego así se destapa como futuro acaparador de la atención de cualquier jugón que tenga un amigo a mano. Eso sí, gráficamente no despliega todas las excelencias técnicas de la máquina CD, pero es que hasta esto es una ventaja cuando significa existen pocas pausas para cargar, y las que hay son mínimas.
Overall, Windjammers, or Flying Power Disc, is a terrific game. I like these old Neo Geo sports titles. There are no rosters, so the games age well. The controls have that easy to pick up, hard to master quality that keep you coming back for multiple play-throughs. This game is dirt cheap on the Neo Geo CD, and should be a no-brainer. If you don’t have a Neo Geo CD, you can get it on Wii Virtual Console. Highly recommended.
