Critic Reviews for Windjammers

A 90s arcade masterpiece gets the home port it deserves.

If you can get friends interested, though, Windjammers makes for an almost no-brainer local purchase. The intensity of the gameplay and sheer attitude the game exhibits is truly a joy. I do wish the Vita version had ad-hoc multiplayer, but since this is a cross-buy title, you'll have access to the better realized PS4 version regardless of which console you buy this on.

We often forget the fun that can be had when you sit down with your friends and battle it out over a few games. Windjammers serves as a reminder you don't have to make games with super flashy graphics or complex gameplay in order to stand out and be fun. At its core, Windjammers is a very basic game, but that's likely part of why it has captured a cult following over the past 20 years. Now it finds a home on the Nintendo Switch, and I couldn't think of a better place for it. Time to dust off those discs and prepare for glory.

Faithful conversion of a game that hasn't old one bit. There's not much new to see and we've had some problems with the online mode, but it's so freaking fun that it's impossible not to recommend Windjammers to anyone who just want to have a good time.

As fun an adictive as it was 24 years ago, but its online component is not working properly, so that makes this remake a failed attempt to improve the original formula.

Stylish, simplistic and a whole load of fun, get some mates round and have a tournament, you'll thank me later.

It misses the thrill of slamming a quarter down on a cabinet in some dimly lit arcade and throttling some jerk who thinks they're a pretty radical Windjammer.

It might be a relic of old arcade fun, but there must be a reason so many people love it, and it seems truly good gameplay mechanics don't age if Windjammers is anything to go by.
