The shooting is fun, but the real hook is devoting time to creating a terrifying killing machine

Sky Force Reloaded is an excellent shoot ‘em up and represents its lineage with quality. It's a shame that it forces the player to grind excessively but, still, it's a recommendable title for every user, fan of the genre or not. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

I'm really surprised just how much I enjoyed Sky Force Reloaded, the first time I loaded it up I was playing it for five hours non-stop and at no point was I bored. Adding grind to a shoot 'em up sounds terrible but it's a genius idea to counter the shoot 'em up's traditionally short playtime. By adding the challenges, the act of replaying a level twenty or more times never gets boring. I am now going to bestow on Sky Force the highest honour I can give it: It reminds me of SWIV.

The combination of 2D gameplay with 3D objects and some voxel based items and power ups seems like a blend of distinct styles waiting to go wrong but it works well and runs great.

Sky Force Reloaded is a great shoot-em-up for the Nintendo Switch, and is enjoyable for the hardened veteran and newbie alike. The intense gameplay and enjoyable progression system just kept me coming back for more, and will provide hours upon hours of enjoyment.

Sky Force Reloaded starts the player all souped up, and then strips everything away going into the meat of the game.

I've always enjoyed the genre, and everything in Sky Force Reloaded is solid enough. From a visual, gameplay, and soundtrack standpoint, I'm more than happy. I just can't shake this feeling that the game was designed to kill hours on the phone, and for me it just doesn't translate into a great home console experience.

Though not hugely different from its prequel, Sky Force Anniversary, Sky Force Reloaded nonetheless offers up a compelling slice of vertical scrolling shoot em' up action that both newcomers and fans of the genre will undoubtedly enjoy.

With a solid progression system that means no defeat has to be too punishing and every attempt gets you a little further, Sky Force Reloaded is a 'one more try' shooter. Building up your ship from a pathetic husk to a monstrous killing machine is satisfying and fun, but it's a slight shame that the game is let down at times by bland environments and all too familiar enemy types.

Despite a lot of insane grinding, Sky Force Reloaded is a great porting from mobile to console. If you love shoot 'em ups, you should not miss this game for any reason.

Sky Force Reloaded for the Nintendo Switch is a welcome addition of a game that will certainly please fans of the 2D shooting genre, thanks to its good gameplay mechanics and cooperative mode. Where Sky Force Reloaded loses out is on its price, as the Nintendo Switch version asks for a value that is not requested for its free mobile counterpart.

There's a legitimately interesting and enjoyable top-down shooter experience present in Sky Force Reloaded, but it's tainted by an overall package that still has far too many connections to its free-to-play origins. Those longing for a game that'll last for a while will find the most enjoyment here, but most others may find progression to be a total slog.

Sky Force Reloaded is a fun shmup with a good variety of dangers to deal with and one that gives you a number of options to deal with them. Stages can be tough, but when you nearly make it you'll want to dive back in and try again, certain you know how to do better this time around. Sometimes you'll be forced to replay them in order to proceed further in the game, whether that's grinding for stars or looking to achieve a medal, although that can still feel fresh due to tackling the stages a different way. The thrill of finally beating a tricky level can be dampened by the realisation you need to go pick up a handful of medals however, but it can be fun to return to a previously tricky stage and ease through thanks to an improved craft. Sky Force Reloaded may force you to spend time with it and feel like a grind as a result, but for the most part, the time invested is enjoyable.

Sky Force Reloaded its a worthy representative of a genre as classic as it is rare these days, where titles with realistic graphics and pharaonic budgets take over the sales lists. Addictive, with a more than respectable duration, which will depend on your ability or if you decide to play it in company, and at a price that admits no excuses. Guaranteed purchase.

A vertical shoot-em-up that does its best to modernise the genre with an upgrade and progression system. It successfully captures the spirit of older games of its ilk, but the perpetual grind may dissuade many players.

Sky Force Reloaded fully exploits the shoot'em up genre. Destroying the enemies, unlocking new upgrades and coming back to already completed maps on higher difficulty level – all of this is unbelievably satisfying!

A brilliant shoot 'em up that harks back to the good old days of video games but with a refreshing modern update. You can jump in for one run and leave five hours later because the game play is so enjoyable.

Sky Force Reloaded is a solid if unremarkable vertical shoot'em up, that capitalizes on the absence of similar titles on both Microsoft and Sony marketplaces. We had fun with it, expecially with a friend locally, but that doesn't mean it is perfect. Still, a reasonable choice for fans of the genre.

A great port of an excellent mobile game. It may not have the longevity of classics, but it's a hell of a blast while it lasts.
