About This Game

Destroy the Luftwaffe!

There’s something new in the air, and it’s more than the hum of hundreds of aero engines... As the Luftwaffe launches its aerial offensive, the outnumbered Royal Air Force is scrambling to bring into combat new planes that will ensure victory over a stronger foe. Will they succeed? It’s up to you, and your Hurricane or Spitfire. If you hold off the enemy long enough, you’ll be the first to fly the Hawker Tornado and Westland Whirlwind into combat, and enable the Empire to strike back before Reichsmarschall Goering finishes his breakfast. You’ll be rewarded with bonus missions, promotions, decorations, and a view of burning Berlin from the tail turret of a Halifax bomber. Join in the new Battle of Britain. Your aircraft is ready and waiting...
  • Enjoy the realism of a detailed damage model, stunning graphics, and outstanding special effects
  • Choose between arcade and flight simulator control modes, and the RAF or the Luftwaffe in multiplayer mode
  • Get on board of one of realistically modeled planes, e.g. Spitfire and Hurricane and dive into the world of ultra realistic air fights

Boring, not the greatest game honestly, this is just my opinion, i would not reccomend anyone to buy this, do so if you wish, watch gameplay trailers first to make sure it's what you want, i'd only reccomend buying this game on a deal.

+If you are into Planes or plane games, this can be a fun game.
+Feels a bit like Warthunder when in mouse-aim.
+Starts really fast, is leightweight, quickly downloaded, etc.

-Physics, enemy planes can crash into ground without being harmed, then keep on fliing.
~More a game then a simulation, if you are a hardcore simulationist then this might be not for you.
-Not as many features as other flight-sims or flight-games.

Goofy voice acting is strong with this one, not to speak of buggy sounds and screen aspect ratio restricted to 4:3.

The game is in a 4:3 resolution and it is not changeable = fail, uninstall. Nobody has played with that resolution since monitors were huge and square and weighed fifty pounds back in 2000. The mouse is way too sensitive even on the lowest setting so I had to change sensitivity with razer synapse by alt+tabbing out. Those actually aren't the main reasons I uninstalled this, just the most heavily glaring problems. I actually gave this game a try. The game textures look like vomit and it is just not fun having to circle around and do several passes to kill targets if you miss. Oh and during the tutorial I right clicked to drop a bomb to try it out then it said for me to drop a bomb on a ground target but the bomb icon was red and I couldn't drop anymore so I was literally stuck and had to restart the tutorial. Getting one bomb in the ♥♥♥♥ing tutorial, great game.

0/10, don't bother. Go for Strike Suit Zero or Thunder Wolves for air combat that is fun and not awful.

Decent-looking WWI action-flightsim.
Not too hardware-demanding (runs on most laptops).
Worth a try!

Great and very cheap relief. And with its size of less than 400MB this game is worth the price. And the bst, it supports Flying Sticks.

Nothing fancy, simple shoot 'em up in the sky game. The game is more inclined towards shooting than simulation and control.
If you want a relaxed air combat shoot 'em all game, this one is for you. Don't expect much in terms of graphics.

This is a great game for $5!! I love it and wish it had expansion packs. Its easily played even by beginners and you'll be clearing the skies over London in no time. I wasted hours replaying missions and I keep saying to myself: "I wish this had more missions especially american missions over Europe!"

this game is alot better than it looks, its a very stern game with great dogfights! the AI are pretty smart while still feeling pretty realistic, and you have tons of planes with each having a few neat paintjobs and symbols you can chooe from.

I wouldnt say this is the best game in the world, but its really fun while staying incredibly addictive.

Strangely, I actually liked the demo better than the actual game. Frankly, I rage-quit after failing to learn how to properly bomb targets. If you like flying games this is pretty good. My two sons do multiplayer duels with it and seem to have fun, so it has that going for it as well.

Fun game, but is almost unplayable if you have a multi monitor setup. in the missions where you are a gunner the mouse isnt locked, so it will drift from monitor to monitor, and as soon as you click you will minimise the game. the only fix i have been able to come up with is to turn off monitors 2 and 3 so this game can be in its happy spot.
