Sky Force Anniversary is a great modern shmup that unfortunately pads its content by pushing players to the max. Not only that, but there are implementations, such as the specialties, that feel arbitrary. Detractions aside, I liked the game quite a bit and the addition of co-op and Remote Play was a godsend. Sky Force Anniversary didn’t evolve the genre, but it created something moderately pleasant in our modern architecture.
The gaming world and arcades have changed a lot in the last 10 years, and the simple fact that games such as this still exist is something I treasure. Even when they don’t pan out to be exactly as good as some of their predecessors, it’s appreciated. For the price, the nostalgia, or just a really fun old school game experience to play on your PS4, I’d say Sky Force Anniversary is totally worth it.
Sky Force Anniversary is a good game marred by some ridiculous grinding and unrealistic expectations. By the fourth level, you might find yourself stuck, replaying the same stage over and over, and only gaining more stars and less enthusiasm. By the time a new level is unlocked, the excitement just doesn't feel like enough to always make you want to climb that next hill. This is something for those who feel the need to do everything, because as time goes on, you most certainly will.
