Pilot is a kart-style racing game (only with planes taking
the place of karts). I
was a little apprehensive about playing this game. GBA enthusiasts
may recall that it was originally planned to be one of the
launch titles (under the title Diddy Kong Pilot) that
would be available when the GBA first entered the market.
later and the game is finally available - who wouldn't be
a little weary of what to expect?
end result is a pretty standard kart game - nothing really
that original (apart from the plane angle - which actually
seems a little pointless as the courses are flat). However,
for those who enjoy kart games this is worth taking a look
at. Pretty graphics, catchy music and a whole heap of cool
weapons to pick up and throw at your opponents make this as
enjoyable as any other game in the genre. Plus, if you top
the leader board after four races, there's the added bonus
of taking on the current champion in a dogfight.
fact that there are a total of nine characters to choose from
(most of which you have to unlock), as well as a whole heap
of race circuits and cups to compete for, should keep most
people entertained for weeks, possibly months.
the plane angle seems a little pointless (other than to attempt
to try and make this game stand out from a crowded market).
As I mentioned earlier the
courses are flat. If they had obstacles to avoid then it might
have added some more depth. You can also undertake barrel
rolls and somersaults. These seemed pretty pointless. Apparently
these moves can help you avoid some of the projectiles that
your opponents throw at you, to knock you for six. Sadly,
that doesn't seem to work as well as advertised (or at all
in my case). So again, the question remains why bother to
have this as an airborne game?
you are not a fan of kart games then you're obviously not
going to enjoy this, but if you are thinking of adding another
one to your collection you could do much worse than Banjo
