While I only spent a short while with the title at Gameloft, I found the overall flow of the onscreen action to make for a great shooter experience with a real arcade feel.  Siberian Strike impressed me as one of the best shooters I've encountered for the iPhone.

We will be posting a much closer look, with video, shortly.

    I used to play a lot and to think it was the perfect game for mobile so i was waiting for it but i m really disapointed here...
    it feels fake, the planes to attack are designed like kids...

    so disapointed but kind of understand now why the game was only 5 bucks instead of 9 like nost of the game by gameloft.
    i know now

    $5.99 for a shooting game?

    NO THANKS

    I got my Sky Force Reload for $0.99, iFightLite and Space DEADBEEF for FREE

    C'mon

    I'm enjoying it so far. It's definitely fast and smoothly animated. It's giving Sky Force Reloaded a run for the money...I'll have to see how far I can get before I make a final judgment.

      Of course it's giving another game a run for its money, it took all of yours! This game is far too high priced for the genre.
