The bomb the base mode is especially good, if your team works together! Graphically it's cheerful, with a cartoony style that extends to the sound too. You can chat with other players as you play, too. For old school arcade action, Altitude is fantastic: Easy to play, difficult to master. Often the online games can be a bit long - 5 minutes is better than 15 - but nevertheless they are good fun. Altitude offers a great mix of simple gameplay and online battles!
Out Of Eight (Jul 09, 2009)
Altitude comes with one limitation that restrict its long-term appeal: only two game modes. This is countered by the core game being very enjoyable, assuming that you aren't playing on an unbalanced server populated by veteran players. Being able to easily create your own maps is a great feature, and hippies will love that Altitude is available for both Macintosh and Linux in addition to Windows. The controls are easy to learn and there are some subtle aspects to the mechanics, like stalling, afterburners, and survival granting bonuses. Whether the game will appeal to you depends on whether or not you like fast games; you can always the demo and find out for yourself (you could have saved yourself a significant amount of reading that way!). Personally? I like it and it gets a recommendation to fans of accelerated multiplayer action.

There really isn't anything to not like about Altitude, the plain and simple gameplay gets you into the action quickly, and every component has been so very well polished it would burn the retinas of Mr Sheen.
Mash Those Buttons (Jun 11, 2010)
The game is rather fun especially if you get consecutive kill-streaks. The game rewards you with stripes over your nickname which increases the effectiveness of your perks. Of course, this also puts a giant set of cross-hairs on your plane from the enemy team wanting to kill you and nix your perk boost. This gives you quite the adrenaline rush if you have gold bars on you and you're leading the way.
However, these are problems that I can live with, because there's something about the game that makes winning or losing almost a moot point; you just play for the fun of it, and that is a good online twitch game. Altitude's simple premise hides behind a deceptively difficult game, but one that's easily learned and enjoyable to engage in. Although there's plenty of content here, more might have been better, but what is here does last, just so long as it's taken in the right doses.
Multiplayer.it (Jan 07, 2010)
Nonostante un prezzo un po' elevato se paragonato a prodotti dotati di una confezione anche parecchio superiore, Altitude resta un titolo assolutamente consigliato, capace di intrattenere per ore grazie a un multiplayer che fa il verso a quello adottato da molti sparatutto in prima persona, tra nuove abilità e potenziamenti acquisibili guadagnando punti esperienza, rivedendolo in chiave bidimensionale e aerea. Il bilanciamento è ottimo e le opzioni hanno tutto il necessario per farne un gioco perfetto sia per una partita veloce che per un più attento approfondimento.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Jan 29, 2010)
Altitude van Nimbly Games is een snelle, leuke en verslavende 2D actiegame waarin je achter de stuurknuppel kruipt van een klein vliegtuigje en zoveel mogelijk andere vliegtuigen uit de lucht moet knallen. Altitude is sinds vorige zomer op de markt, maar trok onze aandacht doordat het pas heel recent op Steam is verschenen met een ware stortvloed aan nieuwe fans als gevolg. Sinds de release is de game ook al vele malen verbeterd waardoor het één van de leukste casual multiplayer online indiegames is van het moment.
