This game doesn't work. It fails to load cutscenes and the entire UI (including the main menu) and crashes frequently.

■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.

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.

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.

Enjoyed the first time through, though it's far too short. Unfortunately, it has nearly no replay value.

It's a popcorn game, but a fun one. The difficulty isn't very high, but it doesn't really need to be. The missions are usually pretty simple and the gameplay is very easy to understand.

I'd definitely recommend it.

This is like playing dogfight with toy planes in your hands when you were a kid. Easy, not complicated, and fun.

I was surprised by how much I like this game. It's clearly a mobile port, so is a bit sparse in content, but what's there is engaging. This is a turn based tactics game with unique move set. It's been easy so far but I haven't tried the higher difficulties. I especially like how you can replay the match in semi-real time to get a sense of how things played out.

Nothing earth shattering, but solid design fundamentals makes it worth a few bucks.

Sid Meier doesn't make bad games and this is no exception. It's simple and short yet infinitely fun. I wasn't sure about the graphics when I looked at the previews because I typically like my wargames detailed and ultra realistic, but the design in this game just works, especially for the period. I was also worried about how fun it would be to play a dogfighting game that was turned based, but again Sid finds a way to make it work beautifully. This title is well worth the cheap price.

In a word "Meh." This is another one of those obvious ports from the iPad. It's OK in small doses; but lacks the depth and addictiveness that you normally find in a 'Sid Meier' title. Buy it cheap and you'll find it's mediocrity tolerable. Buy a "Civ" game or "Railroads" instead and you'll be happier.
