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.

Reallly medicore game. Voice acting is bad and generic, game looks like it was made in 2000. But it is a decent dogfighting game. If you pick it up for a buck id say its a decent 2 hours of fun.

I got this game on sale in hope on finding a easy to play and engaging game for cheap this was a sure fire winner though I did not get it from steam per say anyways I love the ease of use of this game and the basics of just getting in the air and blasting everything the graphic are abit dated and well it isnt a billion dollar game but if you just want basic old school dogfights that are easy and extremely fun then this is the game youve been searching for I cant speak for MP I do not play much of it either way i suggest this to anyone who want to fly anf shoot alot of things!

For the age of the game, it has great entertainment value and doesn't tax your system too much either!

And at the current price, its an absolute bargain!

personal rating: 5/10. Just mediocre.

Combat Wings: Battle of Britain, is a boring game. The gameplay is good, but it gets boring very quickly. The voice acting is pretty bad, too. Throughout the entire game, your comrades and enemies both shout the same 5 lines at you, and that gets really annoying. There isnt much of a story, you're just sat defending your base against german attacks. Not to mention, the same damn music plays every time. It was like some ♥♥♥♥ty NES game from an AVGN episode.

While this could be a great game for someone wanting to waste a few hours on a quasi-historical flight game, it is not able to achieve even that. If you use a joystick the game is very unplayable. There are no setting controls and every few levels you get thrown into a situation that you cannot use the joystick for. The "balance" for the game is to give targets ridiculous levels of health, and hitting those targets with rockets or bombs is like winning the lottery.

+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.

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

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.

What I paid: Part of a bundle, maybe $.40?

- Bad controls and hard to fly with 360 remote
- No way to setup 1080p resolution
- Due to the lack of control, found the game easy to delete and not re-install, not enough "bite" to get me into it.

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

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.
