Over G Fighters review

  • Beautiful jet fighters
  • Kick-ass guitar rock during replays
  • Crashing into your wingman
  • Lo-res, muddy textures
  • Sludgy, unresponsive controls
  • Repetitive gameplay

Granted, most of your sorties consist of a boring "launch, shoot down two or three jets, land" process, so changing from one target to the next is likely to be the most exciting and frustrating thing you get to do. You'll also get a fairly constant barrage of admonitions from your wingman, who yells out phrases like, "What are you doing?!" for no particular reason.

Even the multiplayer over Xbox Live can't save this title from a near-complete flare-out, and while there's nothing actually broken about Over G's gameplay, it still comes off as stale and tedious. The only things truly hi-res about the game are its admittedly amazing jet models, but they only serve to show off the lackluster environment that becomes a hopelessly blurry mess if you fly below 2000 feet. Virtually any title in the Xbox 360 library is more worth the money you could blow on this pathetically dull offering.
