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

I don't usually write reviews but this game really deserves more attention.

First thing's first though, I only got it working having disabled Vmware network adapters, setting it to Windows XP SP2 compatibility settings, and installing the patch found here (http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/heroes_over_europe/Heroes_Over_Europe_v1.02.exe) to get my joystick to work.

Once this had been done however, I got into the game with graphics settings cranked (config file can be found in the game folder) and found it truly is a blast to play. Sure it isn't the most realistic flight game, but it isn't trying to be IL-2 Sturmovik, it's just trying to be fun - and that's exactly what it is. When you set the difficulty to Pilot and realism settings to Professional it actually can get quite challenging and be just realistic enough to feel like you're a bad ♥♥♥ fighter pilot, but arcade enough to feel fun and exciting and not frustrate you, especially with a HOTAS setup like mine.

Sound is awesome with screeching dives and satisfying hits and thundering explosions to follow. Each kill feels worth the trouble and the feeling of watching it break up in the air is fantastic. Hits feel heavy and proper. The campaign is short, but worth it, and personally I feel the AI is unpredictable enough with battles that feel long and hard fought enough to warrant a degree of replayability, I found myself repeating missions for the fun of it. The price is very fair to suit the short campaign and quality of the product, in fact I'd call it a steal. I personally recommend this product to all for a fun, short, but satisfying little WW2 flight experience.

Minor gripes however are:
No multiplayer - personally I don't care for multiplayer but could be a deal breaker for some.
It is really much more immersive and fun with a joystick, and key board/mouse controls are very iffy. If you don't have one, be prepared to get used to awkward (but okay) keyboard or mouse controls.
Getting to work takes a tiny bit of work - more than some can handle as you can see in the forums.
Sometimes the friendly AI can seem pointless, which usually isn't an issue but when you have enemies on your tale shooting you up as you try to do your objective with your friendlies going around in circles it can get a bit frustrating.

For the price, it's definitely worth your time. Be sure to install the patch to make sure your joystick is read by the game, and for those who don't know, when in the options menu in game, go into "Controls" and press the End key, and you can rebind any controls to what you like, it even has preset Xbox 360 controller support.

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!
