Great for parents and their kids to play together

A lot of fun for both me and my kids to play at the same time. I am unable to tell you which one of us likes it best. Like the video game version of a Pixar movie in that way.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (4):

MySims Sky Heroes really soars. Its fast and frenetic gameplay is only enhanced by the colorful and imaginative visuals. The controls are relatively easy to handle, and the storyline is actually quite compelling. The customization system that allows you to build and personalize several vehicles for use in the game is definitely one of the highlights. You can not only customize (and re-customize) the looks of planes, but give each a different set of bonuses and special abilities that will help out in different kinds of missions.

The MySims series has put out several very good games, and Sky Heroes is no exception. It would have been nice if the player had more opportunities to simply fly around and explore the imaginatively-designed island settings, but the multiplayer modes (both co-op and competitive) are definitely a nice addition.

Online interaction: The console versions of the game all support online multiplayer dogfights. These can be fun and exciting -- and a great way for kids to show off their custom-designed characters and vehicles -- but parents should be aware that live voice chat may be enabled. Common Sense Media does not recommend moderation-free online communication for pre-teens. We suggest using the parental controls built into the game console to disable online communication features.
