Project Wingman delivers exciting aerial combat and an interesting campaign, though it won't impress those looking for a hardcore flight sim.
With a variety of missions to choose from at each stage and in-depth customization options, Project Wingman also tests the player’s intelligence in creating synergistic builds and risk-reward assessments. Aside from a multiplayer mode, which this game sadly lacks, this is one of the best infinitely replayable jet-fighter game modes I’ve ever seen.
Project Wingman will fulfill your fighter jockey power fantasies as long as you can ignore the dearth of plane choices - or the absolutely awful end to the story campaign.
So and everything I think it is without a doubt, a recommended title for someone who has never tried anything within this genre, and which you can currently enjoy in Game Pass, either the console or pc version. For those who have already played Ace Combat 7,I would recommend them only through the star Xbox service, mainly so that they can try Conquest, which is undoubtedly enjoyed without any problem.

Project Wingman is a wonderful flight game. If you're looking to get your wings, but Flight Sim is way out of your realm, this is the next best thing. The story is forgettable through a lot of the game, but that isn't the full selling point really.
Project Wingman is a good substitute for Ace Combat. Since it has been over two years since we last got an entry in that series, it seems a perfect time for fans of arcade combat flight games to jump into Project Wingman – it will cost you less than half the price of a standard retail game, coming in at £19.49. The story campaign does have issues with a lack of variety in its mission design, although it does save itself somewhat with great sandboxes to fight within. The combat is intense and engaging, with great visuals to help showcase the impressive action.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Project Wingman is the most blatent flattery I've ever seen. It's good, but never really manages to be better than "A good Ace Combat fan game."
Project Wingman is a strong flight sim.
Project Wingman is an amazing air combat adventure from a team of developers who truly love the genre. Its campaign is fairly predictable, and you may wish for more planes, but the gameplay is just too damn good to overlook. There’s a noticeable layer of quality found in each mission that transcends into the Conquest Mode, which will keep you coming back for more.
Project Wingman features the best Ace Combat has to offer, and more. Sector D2 has crafted a game that’s both original and an homage in one, and I’m here for it. The singleplayer is incredibly well thought out, and provides longevity in its conquest mode where most players would stop when the campaign ends. Project Wingman knows what it is, does what it sets out to do, and exceeds that of its contemporaries.
