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

Combat is fun, but is repetitive and the same every level. Because aiming and hitboxes are inconsistent trying to use rockets is a complete waste, so you just use machine guns every level. The turret levels are the worst I've every played, because you can be shot from guys that are too far away to hit or are over your head and you cant look up high enough to see them, which seems like a huge design flaw and ruins many levels. On these levels the hitboxes and aiming are the worst. Sometimes you need to be directly on a plane to hit them, sometimes you need to be way over their head. You think you get an idea on how aiming works and then you try it again on another plane and none hit. On some planes I moved the aimer on top, slighty in front, way in front, and all around them, and none of the positions registered hitting, which showed lack of polish. No wonder this was a budget title.

Having been a fan of aerial combat games for some time, I acquired this as part of a humble bundle and thought I would give it a try. The controls are easy to learn, even on the hardest setting the game isn't very difficult. The graphics are mediocre, but overall it was a fun aerial combat game. I would recommend this to someone if it were on sale, or as part of a bundle where there are other games you are interested in as well.

+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.

Not a bad little flight sim at all. Escpecially as it's only 392mb. Planes look nice and you can fly with a mouse.
In easy/arcade mode; it's an easy campaign of maybe 4 hours. I flew into the ground a few times but
didn't get shot down. On normal/arcade mode; enemy planes take a lot more damage and seem to be
suicidal as they willl ram you and they seem to be better shots. Not quite as easy. And there's still flight mode which is harder than arcade.
Definitely worth $5.. I think I got it < $5 in the Holiday sale.
It would most likely be a lot easier to fly the planes with a joystick. You fly a Hurricane then a Spitfire.
A twin engine heavy fighter called a Whirlwind a few times and an prototype fighter
called a a Tornado. I don't think they were all that common(?); perhaps late in the war they would
have been available.

Its basic. A simple mouse flyer that is not terrible if you need something for a laptop. Not much more than that. It is not a major sim. Expect a more arcade experience with bad acting.

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

Простенький, но от этого не плохой "авиасимулятор". В этой игре вы окажетсь в шкуре пилота британских ВВС. Как для игры 2006 года все сделано неплохо. Проблем с игрой не возникнет даже у новичков. Радует вид из кабины.
7.5/10
Подтверждением оценки служат 4 наиграных часа. Будь она УГшной - не провел бы там и 10 минут.

Best game of its type I've played recently.

The graphics could be improved a bit, but the gameplay is just great.
The controls are easy and responsive, and your wingmen actually do help (most of the time.) Although, they do tend to get shot down a lot...lol.

You do get a variety of missions, and it does actually feel as if you're in the mission.

The game got really repetitive really fast when all the missions feel the same. There are 23 missions to be played they all felt the same, you go and kill the enemy in the sky over and over again. The graphics got fun to watch when the sky is filled with enemy planes and you get to shoot each one down. It feels like alot of the time that you are the only one shooting all the enemies down even though you are in a squadron of planes. The voice acting was funny in the beginning of the game but after hearing the same thing multiple times it gets old. This game took me around 1-2 hours to beat. If you play it, play it in sections instead of just straight through in one sitting. The controls in the game can be a challenge in the beginning to understand but ounce you get them down then its a really easy game. The game was good but not great. Its repetitive, if you like to kill planes and not have a challenge to it then this is the game for you to burn your time with.
