Little WW2 arcade sim... it runs quite smoothly, there's some mission variety to keep things from getting boring and it controls OK with a gamepad.
I played at the default difficulty level + Simulation mode; it is a bit on the easy side, but not without some mild challenge here and there, missions do not drag too long, and there is at least one checkpoint, usually more, in between, so you'll never have to repeat too much if you fail.

Completed the main campaign in about 3.5 hours, and i guess there is a couple more hours to play to complete both DLC.... all in all, not a bad title if you like this sort of gameplay and can get it cheap.

Great Fun, straight into action 'shoot 'em up'. Pukka arcade action, with reasonable visuals. If your looking for a full on sim, then this one's not for you. But if it's old fashioned fun you want, then give this a go!.

★★★★★★★☆☆☆

A surprisingly fun little arcadey dog fighting game. As of writing this the price is £7 and while I'm not sure I'd pay that, I certainly would pay pretty much any sale price.

The game can be a little confusing at some points with regards to how to execute certain parts of a mission, but other than that the game runs really well and is a genuinely fun experience in a genre which is currently very sparse.

My only minor gripe with it is that it's rather short and the controls feel a bit floaty, but other than that it's an enjoyable game.
