About This Game

Strap into the pilot's seat and fight in the great air battles of World War II. But you aren't alone. You'll have a wingman, or maybe a whole squadron around you, engaging small or large groups of enemies over Europe, North Africa, and the Pacific. WarBirds Dogfights is an extended version of WarBirds with more offline play.

- OVER 60 PLANES OFFLINE: Learn to fly and fight over 60 different WWII airplanes of America, Britain, Germany, Japan and Russia. All aircraft have unique, realistic and challenging flight models.

- MASSIVE AIR BATTLES WITH AI: Play in massive air battles with dozens of planes, all flown by AI except your plane. No waiting for online opponents!

- ALL ACTION: Missions are all action. No takeoffs, landings, or boring flights. You start when the enemy is sighted. When mission succeeds (or fails) you can end the action or continue flying as long as you want.

- OVER 20 AIR COMBAT BATTLE SPACES: Participate in over 20 different large scale air battles set in historic battle areas around the world. Each of these battles has separate procedural generation systems:
-- North Africa (Tobruk and Tunisia)
-- Europe (from Battle of Britain to Battle over Germany)
-- The Pacific (Midway, South Pacific atolls, Philippines)
-- Western Russia
Battle sizes vary from 1v1 duels to multiple waves of massive attacks.

- RANDOM GENERATION FOR EACH BATTLE: Each battle space uses procedural generation to vary starting positions, aircraft types and numbers, pilot quality, flight plans, objectives, and more. You can play the in the same battlespace, with the same plane, hundreds of times and never see the same situation!

- FULL TRAINING: The game includes a full training section with over 15 maneuvers to practice and train on!

- UNIQUE EXPERIENCES: Unique bonus missions, including handling a 40mm anti-aircraft gun defending Tobruk, or flying the German Me-163 rocket fighter to intercept allied bombers.

- ADVANCEMENT TRACKING: Advance from novice to world's greatest fighter pilot through a series of promotions.

- MMO ONLINE PLAY: Steam purchasers get a free 30-day trial in the WarBirds Online massively multiplayer online game. Battle against a community other air combat enthusiasts in the plane (or planes) of your choice. WarBirds has live, human online trainers available starting 2100 Eastern Time every Tuesday and Thursday.

- OVER 125 PLANES & VEHICLES ONLINE: Tthe WarBirds online game includes dozens of additional planes and ground vehicles. Drive a platoon of up to four tanks or a flight of four bombers, with AIs following your lead in other vehicles. Experience combat on different types of terrain. Enjoy arenas where both air and ground combat rages, or test your mettle in air-combat-only arenas.

- ONLINE FREE FOREVER OPTION: After the first 30 day trial, you can continue using a FREE forever account with six different planes to fly. At any time, you can purchase limited-time passes, or can set up a monthly subscription, to access all 125 aircraft and ground vehicles, plus special events and battle spaces.

This game greatly expands the solo play found in the standard WarBirds game (also available on Steam). The game also includes a bonus feature - the ability to play online in WarBirds 2016. This game is an ideal solo environment for practicing advanced combat flying. Learn to win in dogfights here for greater online success. Be the pilot every online squadron wants to recruit!

- UPDATED: Compared to earlier versions found elsewhere, this game has new aircraft and flight models for 2016, new online arenas and events, plus bug fixes.

Game won't start.
Just hangs on blank screen, locks the computer and I have to cntrl alt delete and close it.
I've removed all local files and re-downloaded it three times.

How much fun is that?

Hate it. Spit totally uncontrollable, likes diving into the ground. I can fly the Spit Mk 1 in FSX to stall and spin and I can still recover. This game is a waste of money.

I will write a longer review soon, but for now I wanted to recommend the game because the mostly negative rating makes this look like a terrible game, which it is not. I'll go in detail when I get some free time. However, if you like team play flight sims... THE ONLINE WORLD WAR MAP IS HUGE!!!!

I wrote my more detailed review here for those that are interested in the game and the features it has to offer:

I beleve in KISS. KISS is a milatary trum use in WWII. Means, Keep It Simpul Stuped. The plain turns way too slow. Can not loop. No instent key mamping to refur too. Just Simpley too complated In start up play. No eazy or arcade mode for fast fun play or simpul play. your reastlick is poor when the emanes can out fly you. i can go on and on. The thing is i was spoiled. The most fun Fighter plain game i ever played was "European Air War" By Micro PROSE. ... Sorry GUY'S. Ho,.. sorry I am stupid and can not spell. Smiles. ...... StarLanz

I rarely see a WW2 flight simulator game in nowadays, so I'm really happy to see one, where you don't have to play 400 hours to fly with a Me-163.
But my satisfaction is not complete. As you see this game use an old game engine, so the grapics is outdated as hell, and I also doubt this game have the best handling,
but we have to understand it's an indie game not an AAA game, so our expectation have to adjust to the 17-19$ price range. However it's not a bad game, and this games strongest side is the massive air battle with hundreds airplane. Just check the video below, you will understand it and I also think it will help you decide if you are thinking on to buy it.:
