"Casual (but still interesting) strategy game about the Battle of Britian. You're an air marshal who commands (and manages) the English side of the fight"

About This Game

Take command over RAF during the WW2 history turning point, the Battle of Britain!

The goal of the game is to defend Great Britain against German bombing raids.

The game has two distinct gameplay experiences where:
* The player manages war production and squadron placement
* The player organizes patrol routes and tactics

Once combat is initiated the player can lead their squadrons to attack waves of German bombers utilizing simple touch or mouse commands.

The game follows the historical timeline very closely, but at the same time - the game mechanics are easy to learn (yet hard to master) and it provides great entertainment for both seasoned and novice players.

* There are 8 aircraft types in the game - including of course the famous Supermarine Spitfire!
* Every pilot is earning his own experience - witness your rookies become aces!
* Manage the British war machine - decide what should be built and where
* Fight epic air battles!
* Lead English, Polish, Czechs, Canadian and New Zealands squadrons to fight for freedom!

The game implements ‘German Command AI” which results in each campaign playing out differently. No two games will ever be the same.

This is a challenging strategy game. It is well put together with very few bugs. If you like a military strategy style of game you will not be disappointed by "The Few". If you're a casual FPS style of gamer look elsewhere: You have to be patient and think to win this game. Even then its no guarantee.

Solid Effort 8/10.

Buy it! very good game , if you like the battle of Britian 1940
, the pilot sounds during combat are classic, they yell and shriek , cheer and jeer,
action is fast pace with fast forward button and AI on the 50 days mission is keen and plentiful
I would like some more stats of individual pitlots and the ability to de commision squadrons ,
maybe choose the squardron from a list rather than be given one , I also would like to play German
overall the Major gives it 4 of 5 stars

This is a fun game, with some simple ideas and rules that make a surprising complex and rich playing experience.

It has a lot of the good things from a real-time strategy game, but gameplay isn't as urgent since you can pause the action whenever, so you always have the time to think about what you want to do.

It does have some cons, mostly the steep initial learning curve. And the controls, although sufficient, are a bit hard to use even once you've mastered them! But it's really fun, and even relaxing once you get the hang of it. So fun, in fact, that it's always tempting to just play 'one more' battle!

I really enjoyed playing it once I got past the initial hurdles of learning what was going on, and I'm still enjoying it.
