If you are here looking for a great sequal to the first Ace Patrol game than I'm afraid to tell you that it's not here. If your looking for a cool turn bases WW2 airplane dogfighter game, well again. it's not here. I'm afraid to say that this game is actually unplayable and an embarasment to Sid Meier's name and Firaxs it's self. Why? here's why.
-No fullscreen option. Normally that's okay but when the first Ace Patrol game had it and this one doesn't...
-There's no graphics. No I'm serious, you load into the game after the main menu (which as graphics) and your presented with a choice of who to fight with. On this screen you see outlines of planes but no color or graphics. Next you get to chose a pilot from 4 different portraits which, some how, look uglier than the first game.
After all that you get to pick your first mission... if you can find it. the plains are bright purple, the background textrures are black, you can't see any buttons to controll your planes and the game is just unplayable.
Reading the forums there have been many threads about this yet the game has never been updated. So avaoid at all costs, go play the original Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, it's much better.
