Flying is pretty fun. It is more arcadish than sim. So if you like planes and just want to mess around you will enjoy this game.

You have to maually patch this game to not have any crashes for windows 7 and probably 8 too.

While it features a decent selection of classic jets, fun combat, and easy to pick up sim characteristics, I cannot recommend Wings over Europe for the simple fact that it's a poorly optimized mess and offers nothing over the Strike Fighters 2 series. It's not bad, it's just obselete.

To be clear: Third Wire does not see a penny of the money from this product.

A great modern flight simulator that reminds me a lot of the 90's sims before they got rediculously complex.

I thoroughly recommend it, but DON'T BUY IT FROM STEAM!
Buy it from Third Wire directly!

Third Wire are the developers, and they DON'T RECEIVE A SINGLE CENT from the sales of this on Steam, so you're only supported immoral publishers and their contracts.

For the asking price during a sale, this is an exellent purchase. The game has dept and an amazing modding community that provides aircraft, campaigns and the like.

However, the sequels is far superior. You can buy them off the Developers website here:

Even though this is a classic and fun game, I can't recommend it because it CTD every time you try to end the mission.
