Таким образом, в Flying Heroes есть все необходимые элементы для того, чтобы стать настоящим шедевром. Если эта игра пройдет незамеченной, я буду сильно удивлен, а если Вы еще не успели обратить на нее своего внимания, то я настоятельно рекомендую немедленно сделать это.

Fundamentally Flying Heroes is a mishmash of ideas and concepts - it has action, character development, hell, even resource management! Thankfully, for all its complexity, it doesn't take itself too seriously, being at the end of the day, a big air battle between winged beasts. There are problems of course - it really suffers from being almost too modest for its own good, and I would love to see this concept taken and really worked on. Pirouetting in mid-air and diving into combat against aeroplanes and enormous dinosaurs would be so much more involving! Still, it is the first game in five years to make me feel like Bullfrogs' classic "Magic Carpet" did, so I can't but help like it...

В общем, говорить тут особо нечего, надо бежать и покупать. Игрушка получилась просто великолепная, очень красивая, сбалансированная, мягкая, белая и пушистая. Даже интерфейс основного меню, вещь вроде бы очень формализованная и строгая, не вызывает ничего, кроме добрых чувств в адрес создателей. Кроме того, отличные мультиплеерные возможности вполне в состоянии подлить масла в огонь и дополнительно продлить жизнь этому проекту. Несомненно, игра найдет своих почитателей, и их будет немало. Один, по крайней мере, уже есть точно. Ну а диск с игрушкой после трех-четырехкратного прохождения подлежит помещению под богемское стекло или в хрустальный ларец с целью сохранения для потомков.

Een erg leuke en vernieuwende action flightgame. Jammer dat sommige clans gewoon minder lekker spelen dan andere, maar voor de rest is Flying heroes een aanwinst voor je gamescollectie.

Flying Heroes is the game Drakan should have been. Forget all the stupid adventure game stuff in Drakan. We just wanted to fly and fight, and that's what Flying Heroes gives us in spades - well, to be precise, gives us on the backs of dragons, great winged birds, ensorcelled giant teapots, and powerful zeppelins. Flying Heroes is a game of fantastic flying beasts, enchanted objects, and mechanical constructs all battling one another in fierce league play. It's a game that's a delightful cross between a shooter like Quake and any space sim you fancy, all the while with a charm and style all its own.

Insgesamt ist Flying Heroes eine gelungene Variante bekannter Shooter-Spiele. Die dritte Dimension ermöglicht neue Taktiken und sorgt für zusätzliche Gelegenheiten, den Gegner zu überraschen. Ein ganz neues Spielgefühl entsteht, wenn ihr hinter einem Berg hervorkommt, routinemäßig rechts und links nach Gegnern checkt, nur um im nächsten Moment von unten beschossen zu werden. Eine gute Taktik, wenn einem der Gegner auf den Fersen ist: bremsen, unter dem Gegner wegtauchen und von hinten angreifen. Besonders motivierend ist der Karrieremodus. Man muss eine ganze Weile spielen, um schließlich die besten Schiffe kaufen zu können.

Game industry News (GiN)
Flying Heroes is a real rush, though you won't get much replay value from the title. The game errors and such give it more of a first-effort feel than a solid title from veteran programmers. However, that said, the game is a ton of fun, looks better than any flying sim I've ever viewed - and that includes the entire Descent series - and will keep you coming back for more right up to the point where you win. It earns a highly advanced Gold league rating of 4 GiN Gems, with a few points off for the bugs and wacky ending.

Langzamer, maar daarom niet minder zenuwslopend deze shooter met een totaal gestoorde set vliegende... eh... dinges.

Illusion Softworks' Flying Heroes is a good-looking action game with an interesting premise - it's a fantasy-themed shooter in which hotshot pilots and apprentice wizards mount gigantic birds, propeller-driven zeppelins, and flying lizards then compete against each other in huge arenas. Its pacing, decor, and a great deal of its gameplay are reminiscent of Bullfrog's classic Magic Carpet, but its colorful graphics, variety of weapons, and emphasis on competitive play seem more akin to more recent games such as Descent 3 or Unreal Tournament. Though it's got a few problems and a few stability issues, Flying Heroes is otherwise an extremely enjoyable game.

Ondanks enkele nadelen in deze game is hij toch zeer goed speelbaar. Het is een gewaagde stap van de makers om het lopen te vervangen door het vliegen, en ik denk wel dat dit een goede keus is. Dit en het feit dat de gameplay zeer goed is kan er voor zorgen dat deze game een topper kan worden.

Flying Heroes apporte un souffle nouveau dans le shooter à la première personne, le combat aérien est différent de celui à pieds, c’est indéniable : un autre gameplay, d’autres styles de cartes et de personnages… qui plus est les développeurs on fait preuve d’une imagination débordante et d’un humour au second degré pas désagréable. On regrette un jeu solo un peu léger et quelques superficialités ici ou là, mais au final Flying Heroes est très plaisant.

Für Flugbegeisterte dürfte Flying Heroes in etwa das darstellen, was Unreal Tournament für das Bodenpersonal ist: Ein riesiges Jeder-gegen-jeden-Spektakel, in dem alles erlaubt ist und für Skrupel keine Zeit bleibt. In der Fantasywelt Hesperia treten in regelmäßigen Abständen Gladiatoren gegeneinander an, um auf fliegenden Teppichen, gezähmten Drachen oder Zeppelinen um den Aufstieg in der so genannten Eisernen Liga zu kämpfen.

Een nieuwe aanpak van een beproefd genre. De afwerking had echter beter gemoeten!

Had FLYING HEROES run without a hitch, I could have ignored the adequate but uninspired sound and cheesy voice acting, and would probably have rated it four stars. Unfortunately, I had to disable my joystick port to get it to run. Despite these minor faults, if you like tournament-style shooters, FLYING HEROES deserves a look.

Bringing new light and life to 3D shooters in ways and altitudes not seen in a long time, Flying Heroes is a moderate success. It doesn't matter that this 3D shooter takes place in the air, or that is uses the fantasy setting as its backdrop, there's some fun to be had here for 3D shooter, aerial combat and arcade fans alike. What does matter is that the game is fun and entertaining and doesn't take itself too seriously.

Der Spielverlauf ähnelt sehr Programmen wie Unreal: Tournament oder Nerf: Arena Blast in 3D, das Ganze ist nur bedeutend langsamer - so ein fliegender Teppich braucht halt seine Zeit zum Wenden. Die Herumballerei, das Einkaufen und der Aufstieg in den drei Ligen birgt aber durchaus eine Motivation weiterzumachen - nur ragen die fliegenden Helden in keinem einzigen Punkt aus der Mittelmäßigkeit heraus.

Warum werden hier nur so herrliche Landschaften und witzige Ideen an den schlechten Versuch verschwendet, krampfhaft am Arenawahn teilzuhaben? In so einem Spiel erwarte ich keine dumpf im Raum hängenden Rieseneier, die ich aus einer trödeligen Kanone mit grünen Bröckchen bekleckere. Ich erwarte Tempo und Action. Ist das zuviel verlangt?

Every year, amidst a sea of clones and an ocean of mediocrity, a handful of completely original titles make its way to store shelves. Talonsoft's Flying Heroes is one of those unique titles. Problem is, the more I played Flying Heroes, the less interested I became with it. For the sake of a better metaphor, think of Flying Heroes as a stripper at a peeler who makes the mistake of removing all her clothes in the first minute of the first song. Why is this a bad thing you ask? That's simple, the show's only begun and you've already shown me all your goodies. I don't care if there's still another song or two left in your routine, get off the stage and bring on the next lady… err, game!

Le moteur 3D tourne au poil. Mais, à l'arrivée, quel gâchis. La maniabilité d'un piaf - même doté de réacteurs - fait s'interroger sur la viabilité du projet. Alors, on se lasse très rapidement de piloter une mouette ivre à la souris pour échapper aux tirs de l'I.A. surpuissante. Le mode Carrière, les 24 armes et 24 véhicules volants ne suffiront pas à nous donner envie de voir la suite. Dommage.

Overall the best thing I can say about Flying Heroes is that it's a novel concept. Unfortunately the execution is poor in the design area, and unforgivable on the technical side. There are some massive player and weapon balance issues, as evidenced by situations where you may face an airship with 2000 hit-points while you're riding on a lizard with 100. The poor in-game performance, and a myriad of other technical problems add up to one of the most frustrating gaming experiences I've ever seen.

Bon courage ! C'est tout ce que nous pouvons vous souhaiter si vous décidez d'acheter Flying Heroes. Bon courage pour réussir à prendre en main et à contrôler la chose malgré la maniabilité catastrophique. Bon courage pour réussir à échapper aux tirs quasiment imparrables de l'ennemi (tout en continuant à s'adapter à la prise en main catastrophique, rappelons-le !).

Flying Heroes is occasionally fun, but it is almost constantly tedious and boring. Despite having a few different types of games, you see everything it has to offer within the first five minutes of play. If you're truly desperate for a mind-numbing game and Flying Heroes is sitting in the bargain bin, pass it up and find a graphically dated classic instead.
