A cool game at first, but ultimately it runs into a progression brick wall during a certain Stalingrad mission that was just impossible for me to beat no matter how hard I tried. I -really- liked this game until that point, but once that happened.... no. I later tried to get this game installed to give it another try, but the game outright didn't work anymore. So for that, this game is a solid "no" from me.

But... these are the same devs behind War Thunder, and much of what was in this game has carried over into the single-player missions found in that game. So really this game is entirely uneccesary anyway since WT is free and isn't broken. So if you really want to play a WW2 plane game, play that instead. Or something else. Just not this.

Having finally earnt my pilots license and obtaining a job crop dusting a marjuana field for the lovely black men just out of town, I was swiftly shipped back to the glorious fatherland to fly my new messerschmitt. Thinking I would serve my wonderul fuhrer I was shot down 3 minutes after taking off. I am writing this review from a prison in denmark. send help please.

Wings of Prey is comparable to that hot girl you had a crush on in high school. She was beautiful, the game is gorgeous. She had such elegance; WoP is very polished as a game. She has these abundance of little quirks (twirling hair, giggle, etc) that made you go wild, WoP has features to drool for (storyline, video replay, squadron control, etc).

Then one day you just don’t get excited to spend time together anymore, the romance fades, you realize she has no personality and is becoming obnoxious with her emotional issues. The replay ability is lost, you get frustrated with the poor aerial match-ups, there is no customization or sand box mode, and your AI enemies always seem to defy the laws of physics.

But no matter what, it was a fun ride while it lasted. 80%

If you can get past yet ANOTHER DRM and giving information to a website that is in russian even when selected for english. If you ever wanted a "warthunder campaign" here it is. Very simular to warthunder in sound,look,flight feel, music, ability to go realism/arcade. Get it on sale - only way it can be recommended

If you're looking for a flight simulator game, but without all the fuss, and good keyboard/mouse controls, then I can highly recommend this game.

Training mode is very open and pretty much lets you do whatever you want - be that combating other fighters, or flying under low bridges in a bomber.

Unfortunaly there doesn't seem to be much of a mod scene, but overall I can highly recommend this game.
