SkyKeepers has some snippets of fun gameplay, and a couple neat ideas, but the overall package offers up more frustration than fun alongside a general lack of polish.
SkyKeepers is going on the short list of Xbox games that are easy gamerscore but just aren't very good.
SkyKeepers is one of those games that gets on your nerves for all the wrong reasons.
As it stands, SkyKeepers is a good action platform game that has laid a solid foundation for (hopefully) future installments.
Overall SkyKeepers is a fun old-school style action platfomer that will have you playing for many hours. The game has a high level of polish and, at least in my playthrough, was free of bugs and glitches. Sure, there’s a definitive curve in place and some battles can feel a bit repetitive with combos that can leave you with sore thumbs, but the game is fun and available at a good price.
If you want a game with a solid platforming base and a lot of challenging gameplay, pick up an axe and enter the village of SkyKeeper.
