Well it's no simulator. But if you don't want to spend a lot of time reading a hefty manual you're in for a treat. The missions offer a great diversity of tasks and you've the chance to fly a lot of different planes. The aircraft models and the overall graphics are decent enough and if you want to take some amazing screenshots wait for the killcam. The missions are short enough to complete in 15 to 20 minutes max - so if you're no hardcore simulation gamer just hop in your plane and have some casual fun.
I strongly recommend to buy the DLC as you get a lot more content.
The game is well optimized and runs smoothly on my system - (see my profile) - and it's worth the asking price although if you're patient you can pick it up on sale quite often.

Casual arcade WW2 aircraft game. It is average on every aspect, so don't have high expectations and only buy it if you can get it really cheap. I finished it in local coop in 3hours - neutral review.

the flight model is simple to use..the planes are well rendered for the style of game.
controls arent great..the planes swing all over the place but its not terrible once you get used to it.
the stories behind each section of the game are quite good.

Only grab this if you really want yet another so-so fighter game and then only when it's on sale for at least 75% off.

I just cannot see myself playing this game again, so thumbs down.
