Heroes in the Sky is an intense airborne MMOTPS (Massively Multiplayer Online Third person Shooter) that combines high impact PVE and fast paced PVP as it chronicles the events from the beginning to the end of World War II.

Cannon fire, machine gun blasts, missiles, and bombs flood the skies as up to 16 players shoot it out for air superiority! If that isn't enough for you, soar across the sky recreating critical battles of the European and Pacific fronts to help your side take control in the occupational war.

Cities will be bombed, boats will be sunk, blimps will be blown to pieces, fighters will be torn asunder; all this and more will unfold as players compete to become the top Ace in WWII.

WTF even is this?
• Bounce off the ground like a dodgeball.
• No bullet travel time, its like ghosts. if its under your recticle it dies.
• Planes can just rotate left and right.
• no gravity, you can just fly straight up, until you hit the skybox.
• only about 2 square km map at its biggest.
• graphics and sounds from 1990, my old iphone had games with better graphics.
• random plane sounds when the map is empty.
• arrow keys and A/S to shoot. No mouse/Joystick options, the description lies.
• Not even going to get started on the MASSIVE P2W structure of the game.
• Broken English.

TL;DR: The dev's accidentally the whole thing.

UPDATE: Following this negative review, the developers of this game have gone out of their way to personally harass and to add me here on Steam, repeatedly trying to add me over three times before I actually had to block him; I'm not even kidding:

Trying to start out in the menu inside this game is like trying to manouver a chinese university blocked child porn website in korean at a resolution that's three times lower than the minimal supported one for your monitor and once you achieve the infallible feat of actually getting a game started, you'll be pleasantly surprised to know that your right hand has generously been cut off to remove any chance of having actual sensual controls with skill-based aiming using the mouse and instead, it has been replaced with a dual-wielding keyboard setup as you are also supplied with constant, forced "tutorial" or "explanation" pop-ups that also feature the noise of a 12 kilo type-writer being taped onto your head and stuck on loop going CLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICK for every single letter that appears in the middle of your already limited-view screen as the game slowly but surely renders 15 A4 papers of tutorial instructions.

In short, you should only play this game in order to find out why you should avoid it.

"Release Date: 3 Mar, 2015"
The launcher says 2011.
The games on my phone have better graphics.
Bad English everywhere.
Controls feel awkward (especially when set to keyboard).
Confusing menus.
Pay to win (first option you get when you open the 'premium store' is "rapid leveling").
Basically just a mess and a complete waste of time.

This game has NO SUPPORT.... NONE! They will do everything they can to get you spend money! The game is fun just hope you dont run into a problem because they dont care at all. If you spend a bunch of cash to get items and upgrades in the game and for some reason there is a glitch or something that prevents you from playing... YOU ARE SCREWED AND YOU LOST ALL YOUR MONEY. This game should be removed from steam!!! It is a scam!!!

This game already exists in a better form, that better form is called War Thunder.
Not saying this is a bad game jus saying there is already a far more popular game on Steam that does the same thing this game does but better.

My goodness. This game is so bad, I don't even know where to start!

-Launcher is ugly as hell.
-Don't know why you made the controls keyboard based. There's something called a "mouse". And with a game that requires aiming. It's best to use the mouse.
-Whenever text is being displayed in-game. It makes the weirdest sound that can ever be projected towards your ears, it makes you want to firmly grip your ears and rip them off.
-Game is definitely focused way too much on P2W
-English is horrible.
-Your plane bounces for no apparent reason...
-Controls feel awkward and makes no sense whatsoever.
-Not allowed to slow down the plane
-Payment is required to join games... Great F2P game. *clap clap*. /sarcasm

Overall, I've had more fun trying to play with a Chinese finger trap with a man without hands. The only thing this game is useful for is to teach you the difference of bad games and abominations. (This being the abomination obviously). Seriously, I pity my computer for having to install this piece of ♥♥♥♥. This game is an insult and a waste of time even if it's "Free". Just making this game free is putting a bad name towards all the other F2P games. Don't waste your time installing this. I played 7 minutes of this game and I already uninstalled it(Good thing that works at least). And I can safely say that this game is literally one of THE worst F2P games I've ever experienced.

Developers of this game, what were you thinking?!

Game broken, spent a lot of time on downloading whatever updates and end up stuck in a never-ending loading screen. Quit and restart the game to try but it just restart downloading those updates again.

Stay away from this.

This game seems to be more of an internet game like club penguin when you play and make friends
although It may seem abit odd from the way you play and your limited movement controling the plane and other things the game like the ok 2008 graphics(at the time) it is more of a game for youth like 12+ so they get a feel for what the fighter pilots had to deal with during world war 2 and here is my opinion in pros and cons

Pros: fun to play with friends,make new friends,fly your favorite ww2 and prototype aircraft, lots of new planes to unlock and the abilty to customize your aircraft with unlockable decals and paint schemes.

outdated graphics,game crashes, planes bounce when you hit the ground, small maps, inaccurate planes in maps such as a bf 109 g10 in the battle of britain

so to summerize my thoughts on the game I think its a game for younger players or if you want to play a game when to want to socialize more then you play(I see that alot but mostly from noobs) but at the same time the game may somewhat be enjoyable and for me and the most enjoyable part is bouncing around with my aircraft on water and ground

What in gods name actually is this......

First off do not download this. Please, do not give it any kind of notice.

Second let's get off to the story of why i wanted to play this and my sudden realization that... This game... Is a let down.

I downloaded this just today after being reminded by a friend about HIS. I seen the reviews on here (because that's the first thing i do to get an idea of the game, free or not.) and it was mixed. Most of the top 30 reviews were saying it was crap. I didn't believe them and boy do i regret it.

The game's screenshots will fool you completely, the graphics (just in my short time of gameplay after an ungodly long patch) looked like they were drawn with crayon and put as graphics. The gameplay is horrible as well, leveling up is worse then in WoT or War Thunder (both better games than this) and i have over 100 hours on both and am still in low tier in game.
This game also screams, pay to win. Daily prizes are bought with a key (not sure if it's every day you have to buy one or not.) just with that alone you think "Why?" Oh it gets much worse. The community is pretty much dead and devs really don't care (All they care about is having more money than Donald Trump.) This game shows how much the Devs hate the English language or something because it is completely broken, i can barely understand anything. You can't exit the game without Alt + F4 (Yes i am not kidding... as of this review i can't exit without Alt + F4)

You can probably get the message by now, that you should stick away from this game. Just in the patch alone i felt my life slowing draining from me, even more so trying to PLAY the game.

Go play War Thunder, World of Warplanes, World of Warships or World of Tanks, all of these games are a better choice then this.
