From a purely arcade standpoint, this is one heck of a lot of fun. Only 3 missions in so far, but this is the best flying fun I've had since the Aces series by Dynamix (Sierra). Take-off and landing are quite simplified in arcade mode, which is fine by me. I wanted an up-close dogfighting game with nice graphics for this decade and that's what I have got. All the more modern war-flight sims focus so much more on reading the radar screens and locking on targets to take down the enemy. This is up-close, personal, get 'em in your cross-hairs and take 'em down fun.
So far, 4 out of 5 stars

Dogfight 1942 is exactly what it sounds like, an Aerial combat game taking place after the events of Pearl Harbor during The Second World War. Instead of being a Flight Combat Simulator, Dogfight 1942 is more of a Flight Combat Arcade-type game. Playing with a traditional Keyboard and Mouse, I found the flying to be slightly unrealistic and to smooth to classify it as a simulator; However, it still has appeal as a fun aerial combat game. Similar to the Ace Combat series, You attack a varying range of adversaries both Aerial and ground-based, using a variety of different period aircraft you unlock through campaigning. The game can be played in Campaign mode, Through Single-player as well as Coop play with online friends. Graphically, I think it looks decent for the type of game it is. The scoring system, as well as earning 5 stars on each mission are what really give it an arcade feel. For a World War 2 type combat game, you could do worse. For an Aerial combat game, I've played much worse. Dogfight 1942 has some appeal, especially if you have friends whom you want to thrash with your own high score.

This game is great. Do not be discouraged when first playing this game and realizing the controls are really hard, all you need to do is lower the mouse sensitivity, and use 'Ace Mode'. Its so awesome to see those kill cams when the planes hit the ocean and explode.

Dogfight 1942 is an arcade WW2 airplane shooter where you pilot various planes on all fronts, jumping from hotspot to hotspot, taking roles of different pilots. You're be jumping from Pearl Harbor to Battle of Britain, from infiltrating occupied France in a captured Bf-110 to torpedo bombing the Japanese flatops at Midway, and many more. The controls must be played with an Xbox360 controller or similar twin-analog controllers (or mouse/keyboard), as this uses mainly the RC plane control method. The AI handles stuff like landing gear and throttle, you just concentrate on turn and burn. Landing is often done for a little extra challenge, and occasionally you need to go after an enemy ace. On easy the planes are responsive and the plane even "regenerates" if you don't get hit for a while. There's even kill cams where the victim of your gun mastery breaks apart in a shower of flames. There are variety of activities, from bombings to rocket attacks, from gunnery to torpedo runs, and if you are desperate you can even call in your wingmen to assist. Graphics are quite good. This is not a sim, nor does it pretend to be, as often your kills will be in the 20's, 30's, even 40's in a single mission. It's a fun game, and it delievers the shallow fun for the turn-and-burn crowd.

A rather simplistic approach on World War 2 aerial combat, letting you enjoy the fantasy of participating in some of the greatest battles of the war without reading 800 pages of manuals and learning about aerodynamics. It is mindless and somewhat dull if played for too long in a single session, but in short bursts manages to pull off being a fun little arcade-game that is all about nicely modeled aircraft blowing up in spectacular kill-cam-cutscenes and some beautiful looking combat areas (particularly when you rise above the clouds towards the sun).

There is no clutter in this, get in there, blow stuff up, return home - rinse and repeat. If you are expecting more, you need to look elsewhere - especially realism has been dropped to provide a more fun, arcade-ish experience - which I feel is the way this needs to be played as it reminds me of earlier Ace Combat-titles or Crimson Skies (while not being as good as both of these series). If you just want to blow some fascists out of the sky, this is the way to go - just don't expect a simulation like IL-2 Sturmovik and you will be fine.
