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.

Quite possibly one of the worst games ever made by Sid Meyer and supported by 2K games.

Do yourself a favor and do not even consider buying this game and do not even accept it if it is gifted to you.

They should never have attempted to export this to PC due to all the graphics problems and crashes.

■Good
1. Like a Civilization. so easy
2. The dogfight have a tension
3. Unique Ambience

■Sucks
1. Unkindness control
2. ♥♥♥♥ graphics (ported from Phone version lack sincerity. Can't control any graphic option. even resolution! ♥♥♥♥!)

It's nice game except ♥♥♥♥headed porting.

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.

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).

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
