terrible game
have loved most flight sims i have played flight simulator 98, xplane, combat flight simulator, aces high, warbirds ... all the greats... i played the tutorial for 10 mins fiddled with the controls and tried again....before going off to google steams return policy .....(they dont have one)
if you like planes but have never played flight sims before ... this is for you, if you have however or if you are over the age of 13 you will probably want your money back

DON'T BUY THIS GAME ON STEAM IF YOU DON'T HAVE Windows® XP!!!!
It doesn't work with anything else. even if it downloads, you won't be able to play it unless you have Windows® XP.
Unless valve UPDATES THE GAMES TO WORK ON WINDOWS 7 it's best to BUY THE PC VERSION FROM A LOCAL STORE.

Ah blazing angles hell of a time i had with this game back when it came out, and still today now that i got it on steam, yeah yeah alot of people down there are complaining about not being able to run the game, well thats what they get for not doing research and manualy finding out that you CAN play this game on windows 7( so far i cant tell if on windows 8), and for those who don't want to go out and figure it out here is how you do it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First: put the "SettingsAplication.exe" on compatibility mode to run on windows 98/me.

Second: you'll have to put steam on compatibility mode as windows XP SP2, but there will be a message on your screen complaing about you using it on compatibility mode, just click the second option and you're done, steam starts normaly.

Third: start the game, set it up, and if you are lucky enough like me you get this damn thing running.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But now back to the game.
The game features decent graphics, althought there is some noticible problems wich are model related, such as the MAIN ENGINE IS NOT SPINNING JUST THE PROP, and they can be kinda of a pain to get used to, another one is on the LODs, when you get at a certain distance from a plane it's supposed to lower it's model quality (in another words it will be less detailed), but they made a mistake with that, because you can see the prop just sitting there not spinning, and the 1024x1024 textures that is a so called feature is another problem, because they dont fit the hole model so they just mirror it and you can see a line on the top of the plane when you are on the ground.

But enough graphics for now, let's talk gameplay, well moving your plane is rather simple with the keyboard arrows and i absolutely love it, other people complain as its anoying and not good because it auto turns for you and becomes unrealistic, but in case you forgot this game is a arcade flight game, you see there is arcade writen on it, it's not supposed to be realistic, althought there is some things that brake reality there but i can forgive that, well there is a way just use those A and D keys and that should be covered up, unless you are in a joystick and there is nothing you can do about that other than use the keyboard, and thats why i love it so much, it feels good to fly with the it, no game i played so far felt so good, and i played alot of flight games (without counting the sims, because well they are sims you need the joystick).

The story is as bad as a plot from the new battlefield games, you just won't give a crap.

Sound design in this game is Ok not the best one i've seen, it uses the same plane sound for all of them except the jets, although i can't say the soundtrack is bad, it's great but it can get REALLY REPETITIVE, and let's not talk about the dialog in this game, it's lazy and repetitive as hell, you will loose count of how many times they will say the SAME DAMN THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN, and that's not just for the outside plot part, even in-plot they dare to use same clips from other missions, but at least Frank can be funny at moments with his lines, sometimes, just sometimes.

Oh yeah i forgot to mention the stand-alone mode wich you can play out side the main campaing, it's fun but can feel like a turkey shooting sometimes, and music there is repetitive because it's pretty much almost the same for all of them, and there is a mini-campaing that you can unlock by completing the game (good luck doing that), but it's just the same as the arcade mode but with more time and more targets and a varitaion with bomber + 2 fighter escort.

Overall Blazing angels has alot of flaws that can ruin its experience at times and can be easily forgotten by some people, it's a game that i might enjoy but its repetitive, the game gets a easy 6/10, it's Ok only problem is that it has too many issues that can kill the gameplay.

PS: yeah the review can have some repetive parts but i just wrote so people that come past this see that they can get it running on a modern OS, they just have to follow the steps said on the top of the review. And also some guides have problems by being incomplete the steps up there are simple and they are sure to work, i did those and it worked.

***** Huge mistake on my part. I didn't read the OS requirements this game ONLY WORKS WITH XP it will download and open with other versions but it will not play well at all.*****

Aside from that this is my opinion of the game.

This was one of the first games I played on the Xbox 360 when it first came out and to this day it is still my favorite flying games. I can't seem to find another flying game that has the same controlls as this. With "arcade" controls you have your throtle on the left stick up and down and your pitch and roll on your right and that is the style I am most comfortable with. Other games have the controlls switched around to where I have to readjust myself to them which I really don't like to do. The game itself is awesome, the campaign isn't short and has it's challenges. You have the option of Ace dog fights to unlock Ace paint patterns for your planes as well as an online dog fight mode where you go head to head with other players as well as a split screen dog fight mode. I really can't express how much I love this game.

Well, Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII looked like a really fun game... "looked like" because I just cannot play it!

This game supports WINDOWS XP ONLY. I'm on Windows 8.1 Pro x64, tried to run the game normally -the option window opens up but tells me out-of-date graphics drivers- and can't recognize the running Windows. I tried to run the game in the Compatibility Mode (Windows XP SP2, SP3, Win Vista, Win 7) and still won't start. Maybe it could run on "Windows XP Mode" or in some Virtual Machine but at this now, there's no point in fiddling around trying to make this "OUT OF DATE" game run.

OVERALL:
DON'T BUY THIS GAME ON STEAM IF YOU DON'T HAVE WINDOWS XP!!!!

RECOMMENDATION:
NONE! DON'T BUY THIS GAME IF YOU DO NOT HAVE WINDOWS XP... until if someday, this game get's updated for modern Windows then maybe it could be worth a shot but as of now, stay away from this game.

RATING:
0.0 / 10

if you want this game and you have a console buy it for console. reasons why is it doesnt work well with mouse. so you'll have to rebind the keys to make the game playable if you dont have a controller. no aircraft selection for missions like the console version. becuase in the ps3 version i had i remember being able to play diffenert aircraft for many of the missions. and in the PC version several missions i remember on the console version are not in the game. and from what people are saying they cant play it on their computer that runs windows8 but it works for me. so if you have a computer that runs windows 8 it might not work for you.

Sloppy collision detection, annoying mission design, eye-abusing and non optional bloom, and lack of choice in aircraft for campaign make this game straight up inferior to the likes of Secret Weapons Over normandy.
Don't bother with this game.

NOT recommended, the stupid auto-correct roll defeats the purpose of playing an action-oriented flight sim. This uneditable and unremovable feature automatically levels the plane as soon as it stops getting input from the mouse. Meaning if you roll left to turn, as soon as you stop rolling the game auto-levels you, requiring stupid amounts of yaw to turn instead (like a noob). Try another flight sim and dont waste your money
