Even with its cheap price, the game's pretty mediocre and your money could be better spent elsewhere.
The game can't really be played realistically because even on Advanced I don't feel like I'm flying an actual Hawker Hurricane or Supermarine Spitfire; much of which you fly in the game, and I feel like this experience is much more realized in any of Oleg ♥♥♥♥♥♥'s Il-2 Sturmovik games.
The voice acting is also a tad annoying, and it seems like most of the British voicework is by the same person. And it doesn't even sound like a WWII-era radio, it sounds much more modern.
It also doesn't seem to work with a flight stick very well. I use a Saitek CyborgX stick, and while the throttle seems to work fine, control surfaces don't seem responsive, I ended up running out of ground and exploding on the runway.
It's okay as an arcade flying game, much like the Blazing Angels series of games, but what I seek in games like these, which are historic titles, is historical realism.
If you want a good flying game that has great flight dynamics, go take a look at Il-2 Sturmovik: 1946. All I can say that's convenient about this game is that it offers a low-requirement gameplay experience for people with low-end computers like myself, but that's about it.
