Ace Patrol is a turn-based air combat game. If you've ever played a civilization game in your life you will instantly recognize the hex grid across which you direct your squadron. There are some really neat concepts here; each pilot has their own flight competencies which enable them to take increasingly more aggressive maneuvers. As you navigate the battlefield you must take into account all of the factors one normally would in a flight combat simulator. From the angle of attack and altitude all the way to the direction you’re currently banking, every aspect affects the options you have for your next turn.
It’s a neat game, but I would love to see it brought back with more graphical polish and a more robust tutorial. During my time playing, everything felt very disjointed and fragmented. It’s not a bad little strategy game, but doesn't feel fully realized.

Great early game but as you progress on and have some 30 missions under your belt then you will really start to wonder why you play this game. Achievements? no way unless you really like to grind. Tactics? yes sure i guess. you have a lot of moves available at this time and you use them constantly.

Quite bland and does not contain the 'one more mission' -bait.

I suppose this can be recommended with caveats. Know what you buy when you fork over cash for this.

Bland, limited & repetitive gameplay is what you can expect from Sid's Ace Patrol. I really tried to enjoy this (I put in the time!), but it has none of the 'one-more-turn' addictiveness of his other games.

So why is it so bad you ask?

Each map looks almost identical, graphics look like direct port from mobile platform, the mission types you can count on one hand & the game itself is very short covering 24 missions across 4 campaigns. They can go quick too! You do not feel there is any progression as you go through as the game centres around your score; having little in the way of feeling like you are winning a war. There is no territory to defend or conquer instead you choose from 3 random missions then up to 4 pilots to progress through each level. Pilot & plane upgrades are rewarded as you proceed through your game, but only really make it easier to win & that isn't really a strong point when the 'Legend' difficulty is not really very challenging. Legend (besides boosting your score) just makes it more frustrating than anything else since the opposing pilots get big stats boosts making it take a painfully long time to shoot them down yet much easier for you to be shot down.

Tactically you will find many dogfights are reduced to both of you flying around in circles for multiple moves until the AI decides to fly out giving you an opening to attack. You can try different tactics but it always comes back to 'circling' from my experience. Once you get behind someone it is very hard for them to get away (unless they're an Ace pilot), and likewise when the roles are reversed. It makes the first few turns of your engagment most important, but then very predictable after that. To add to this, I also couldn't play this on my old PC with ATI graphics as it wouldn't render the display, showing all white, so I have only been able to play recently since I got my new PC with NVidia graphics.

All said & done, I can't help but to ask myself why Sid would put his name on such a sub-par game, let alone make a sequel! Also milking it further by charging almost twice as much locally in AU @ $8.99 instead of US @ $4.99 (still well overpriced for what you get if you ask me).

Very disappointing! :(

This little gem is actually quite intereresting. Made for smart phones and Tablets originally but ported to the PC and beamed into our collective HD using the magic that is STEAM Ace Patrol is about two things. Biplane Hex Combat and more importantly fun.

Gameplay is basically this. You pick a nation (UK, France, Imperial Germany or America!) and each nation has a selecton of randomly generated pilots with aeroplanes of the era and you dogfight the enemy using a turn based hex combat system. Your squadron can have up to four Pilots who fly a series of randomly generated missions over four different offensives against NPC pilots who like your own can be captured or forced temporary out of the war to repair their damaged crates. Both friendly and enemy squadron Pilots unlock RPG-esqe skills, upgrades for their planes and learn special manauvers that give them the upper hand in combat. Oh and as the offensive progresses so does air technology for both sides. You might be flying easy one moment and then the enemy has a fancier crate with another set of wings and a bigger gun to keep you on your toes!

Combat itself is pretty simple, get a good shot under or behind the enemy plane whilst not exposing yourself to the dangers of their wingmans guns or AA gun fire. You are graded with a score system that is tied to the general STEAM achivements and online leaderboard for said game. To increase the score obviously you'll have to ratchet up the difficulty level (or be lucky enough to get a Pilot with the DOUBLE SCORE ability).

The other feature to keep you playing again is once you complete a Offensive with a certain nation the first time you unlock famous WW1 Ace Pilots with their own biplane livery schemes.

Bugs wise I've only encountered one and that sometimes you have some trouble clicking on a hex, this gets really fiddly when your Pilot has a million manuvers and you really don't want to select the FORCE LANDING one. I expect this is to do with it being more of a Tablet game really. Also, some of the art assets are slightly bland (Don't get excited about seeing the Offensive Victory screen more than once) despite the fact they did their best locked more or less in a single location.

Is it worth buying though? sure, why not if you want a addictive but slighty short turn based aeroplane game . But for the best value get it in a Sale and make sure you pick up the rather decent WW2 Pacific Campaign sequal at the same time.

I bought this game right when it was released, but I suppose I forgot about it for a while, while I had plenty of other games to play. Two months have passed, and today I finally realized it was time I tried it.... and damn! It's actually a fun game!

Having Sid Meier's name in the title, I expected this game to be heavy, super-deep and difficult to learn, kinda like Civilization, but it's actually pretty simple, intuitive and easy to get into. I've only been playing for a few hours, and while I'm sure the more advanced missions and the harder difficulty levels can make the game very challenging and complex, it's very begginer-friendly on 'easy mode', so I'm quite happy that for once, I put my ego aside and started with the lowest difficulty level (I usually choose "Normal" or whatever the medium difficulty level is called).

Ugh, not sure how to summarize this, so I'll just go grab something to eat. C'ya. :P

Ace Patrol feels like a port of a mobile game with no challenge. In a mere hour, I blew through half of the missions. You get to see the mission grid, much like other mobile games. You get four pilots / planes and pilot them on missions. Mostly blow up other planes. Sometimes, blow up tanks or zeplins. The game is turn based and played out on a hexigrid with each plane getting a certain amount of spaces based on their speed or altitude.

As you progress mission after mission, your planes / pilots will level up and gain skills you can chose from. You will also unlock upgrades to equip to your 4 planes. These skills feel useless and very subtle. You don't need the skills or upgrades before you get them. Never once did I feel like now that upgrade will totally help me do better.

This is just a very dull game. The maps look identical. The only real thing you even need to concern yourself with each map is enemy territory that will shoot you down, but enemy territory is so sparse, that you'll barely run into it. Plus its easy to avoid. The only way to hide from an enemy is hang out in clouds, but since you operate planes, you cannot really stay in clouds since you'll always be moving.

Avoid this game. Maybe on a phone it would be more fun to kill a bit of time with, but on PC, its just too easy to blow through.

This game exists for the ipad and its exactly the same there as it is on the PC. If anything, the way the controls work makes it better on the ipad. Except for one small detail, its free on the ipad...

I find it insulting that i had to put up money for it when a better version is offered for free on another platform.

For that reason alone, i do not recomend buying it.

Was disappointed with this latest edition from sid meier. Not what you have come to expect from Sid Meier, while good for specific Genre, it is less than the quality many Meier fans have come to expect.

8.5/10 great little casual.
Don't be thrown by the "Sid Meier's" part. This is a game that you can pick up and run with in a coffee break, but will still draw you in for the long sessions. Originally made for mobile devices, it's short sweet and simple. this is reflected in the price, so it's easy to buy with no regrets. The Graphics aren't amazing, but they don't leave your eyes bleeding. Things kinda look like the things they should look like, and the style reminded me of "WINGS" waaay back in my Amiga days. The controls are fairly straightforward, and the icons make it obvious. (a twisty arrow beside you means "roll this way" an arrow curling upwards means "Climb" etc) so there is no need for a long training mission, just enough to check you can click and tell how to shoot the enemy. The different factions and their planes are given special commands or abilities which fit in without intruding (some turn faster, some have better guns, etc)
If you see it on sale, remember that you can download it faster than you read this review. I guarantee it'll make a train journey fly past, (especially in 2-player hotseat mode) or make a nice break between "serious" games on your rig at home.

This Game is Great! It's like the Panzer Corps of the sky (although with less pieces and less missions). Its a lot of fun and it never really gets old as you will always be competing to get the best pilots possible! Ever seen the Blue Max? Now you can fight to win Germany's highest aviation medal in this game! The war develops and so do your planes. Ace Patrol Pacific sky's I also highly recommend because its more missions and more planes! Plus there are acutally battles where your planes keep damage points until the battle finishes, so you have to be careful. I hope they continue this game series because its really fun! Need to enterain yourself for a few minutes? Then this game is perfect! It's got hotseat to so you can battle against your brother, sister and your friends!

But wait what about all those bad reviews saying that this game has lots of glitches and every mission is the same? Thats not remotely true in my opinion. I've never had a single error and I doubt the majority of players do. None of my friends have had those problems either. The game is extremely simple and its fun to play. You can pick it up in ten minutes and be an expert player in a day! Wont it get really old then real soon? No, it wont! You can adjust the difficulty and it actually changes the way you have to play the game. Shure, that applies to almost every game with difficulty settings. You can also change your nation and each nation dosent play the same. I've found Germany and the United States to have the hardest campaigns. France and Britian get pretty good planes early, the Germans too, but in most missions the odds are stacked against the Germans. The United States has a troublesome time getting the good balanced planes that players crave (the triplane has more guns but it goes down in flames a lot)

Anyway, I want you to ask yourself (if your considereing gettting this game). Is it worth it? Based on this description, does it captivate my attention? If yes, then look no further. If no, you should probably whatch some gameplay, and if thats not enough, then try to see if you have a friend who will let you play for a while. Its a great game, almost like an animated board game at times, and I've had a great time playing it so far!

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is a fun, although highly unrealistic at times, turn-based strategy game set during The Great War (aka World War I). How much you enjoy it, however, depends on several factors, all of which shall be discussed in this review.

The first thing many gamers on Steam will notice is that the graphics aren't particularly high-res and the options menu within the game is severely limited. You can't even set the game's resolution and as far as I can tell, there's no anti-aliasing at all.

The reason for this is because SMAP was originally an iOS title.

What's the difference between the iOS app and the PC game? The mobile game is free, but requires that you pay for additional content. The PC version demands payment up front, but there no additional fees, optional or otherwise. The iOS version also uses a touch-screen interface as well, while the PC uses the mouse.

The game's audio is quite nice, especially the sound effects. Whenever you move one of your planes you hear the associated propeller-driven engine noise. It even changes depending on damage or what maneuver you're attempting to pull off.

The music fits the game, although I turned it off. This wasn't because it was bad, but because I generally dislike background music in games.

Unfortunately, your pilots' voices (the few times they speak) are sometimes weird or just plain buggy. One of my German pilots had a voice that sounded like someone had slowed down an old tape recording. It was amusing, but somewhat creepy at the same time.

The gameplay is standard turn-based fare, with some RPG elements tossed in. While in combat, your planes move over a hex-based battlefield, and have to keep an eye on their location. If they pass over an enemy base, for instance, anti-aircraft guns will fire at them. Fly into the clouds and you'll have temporary cover.

Your position also determines when you can fire at the enemy and how much damage you can potentially do. Attacking an enemy from a higher altitude generally inflicts more damage on them, just as lining up shots while on their tail. Likewise, trying to attack an enemy while head-on or from a lower altitude does less damage and exposes you to return fire.

The RPG elements come into play by leveling up your pilots. They can gain rank and medals, including ace status. If you win missions and have less than 50% damage on any pilot, you gain a bonus that can be applied to any pilot. These bonuses improve weapons, flying, and armor.

After a certain number of kills, each pilot gains a callsign, which denotes a special ability, some of which are offensive and other defensive. Examples of offensive callsigns include "Deadeye" (long-range attack and better accuracy) or "Executioner" (potential to kill enemy during first attack) while some defensive callsigns are "Lucky" (anti-aircraft guns do no damage to you) or "Grease Monkey" (repairs plane faster).

Each airplane also has its own stats, which gauge its speed, maneuverability, climbing rate, diving rate and hit points. Some planes have extra features, like a rear gunner or a machine gun mounted on the top of aircraft itself. These features let you shoot behind or up above you, when normally you could only shoot straight ahead.

If one of your pilots is shot down behind enemy lines, he'll be captured and become a prisoner of war. All prisoners are automatically exchanged every Christmas, although its possible for a pilot to escape. If your pilot was shot down within friendly territory, he'll be sent to the hospital and have to heal up before flying again. Finishing the mission with a severely damaged plane also necessitates repairs, which temporarily removes your pilot from active duty.

At the beginning of this review, I also noted that SMAP is unrealistic at times. How so? Well, for starters, you can play as one of four nations when playing a new game: American, British, French, and German. The problem with this is the campaign always begins in 1916, one year before the United States entered the war.

In addition, there are active-duty female combat pilots, when there were none at this time (or at least, none officially part of those four nations' armed forces). No pilots ever die, either. They can be captured or wounded, but that's it.

Of a somewhat more minor nitpick in regards to realism, the ranking structure makes no sense at all, and fails to take into account each nation's differing ranks and language. I know this doesn't really make a difference in the game as rank is meaningless and imparts no benefits of any sort, but it's still annoying if you know better.

So... would I recommend this game? Yes, but only if you really like turn-based strategy, and the military and history inaccuracies won't drive you up the wall.

This is a nice game for breaks but nothing like all other Sid Meier games. The gameplay is very repetitive, but at least refreshing new in the begining. Altough turn based, the planes can only be moved in dependence of the last movement. So you can't fly forward and turn 180° in the next turn unless you pilot learned the Split-S or Immelman Turn. Also the planes behave differently, some are more manouverable, others faster. So you can get a few hours of entertainment out of this game, but don't expect anything like Civ (gametime spent wise).

The first of the fun, quick, isometric turn based flying games. Climb into your Fokker D.VII and shoot down Roy Brown - or climb into your Sopwith Camel and have a go at the Red Baron.

Incredible twist on classic WWI warfare! Turn based strategy game that is definitely worth it if you can get it on sale. Unlock actual manuevers as you go to help plan and execute attacks on enemy ships.

Con- No multiplayer support besides two player hot seat.

While it might be a great mobile title (like Steambirds and Flight Control) it's a very poor desktop PC game for a host of reasons:
- it's a hurried exact port, with an engine resembling Flash, carrying very odd problems like complete broken graphics if i'm running Fraps or EVGA software, flickering menus if Winamp's running in brackground.
- gameplay cluttered with buttons and the dogfighting planes on the neighbouring hexes, making very difficult space orientation, and moving the camera (3D) doesnt help much since it's very unsmooth (feels like 10fps)
Basically a great concept from Sid, but the the monkeys who ported it for PC weren't fed.
