A game that really deserves more attention. It may not be the most realistic WW2 airplane game out there, but hey, that doesnt make it a bad game. A rather mediocore campaign that can be finished withing a day. Still, it's only $6, so if you want to grab it and spend some time with it. Also the multiplayer doesn't work. And you can play in full screen. Alt+Enter. Nobody really knows that.

7/10

Back to the Second World War in a battle of the sky. Great game. Great graphics and it runs perfectly in Windows 7 64 bits. At least for me worked.

ANTI RECOMMENDATION - This game looks great but sadly has big problems. Its a rushed console port in which YOU CANNOT REMAP THE CONTROLS. Its unplayible for me.

Lacklustre successor to the excellent Heroes of the Pacific. I'd avoid it, although it's competitors (Blazing Angels and like) aren't much better really. There's a dearth of good action arcade flight sims these days.

Glad I bought this game when it was available for under £4. Progression beyond the 'Ace Kill' objective in the Phoney War mission appears to be impossible. Says me who before I gave up play scored four ace kills ... Nothing happened. Then just to make sure I replayed the mission scoring three ace kills ... Nothing happens and so the mission gets failed again with all other missions in the game locked. The graphics are stunning but you cannot play this game in full screen mode only in windowed mode.

Bacame boringly repetitive and unrewarding. Have deleted game ... One to give a miss IMHO.

Terrible, controls were not made for a keyboard and mouse set up and the inability to use the mouse makes this unplayable for me. If you do want to try, expect to use wasd and arrow keys simultaneously with the mouse to fire

this gme is awesome!!! I think it is a very action filled arcade simulator!!! the graphics aren't triple A material but the flight models are amazing when your NOT playing on WINDOWS 8.1!!! the flight models on windows 8.1 dont show the movement of the control surfaces, alierons, elevators, rudder, and the game is nothing like a flight simulator but is an amazing arcade game! I love the style, the story, and aircraft included!!! I give the game a 7/10 realistically but personally a 9/10!
