I had the game for 360 but decided to get it for PC so I can use my flightstick (Thrustmaster [that's what she said] HOTAS X)

So far I have yet to notice a difference in gameplay. However, the graphics look really great, I have it on ultra-turbo-awesome and it's very noticeably different from 360.

The best part is the immense configurability for joysticks. It's so good that I spent the first 45 minutes just making small changes to the layouts, including sensitivity of axes, deadzones, and non-linearity. With a little effort, you can get your dream control scheme on any joystick.

All this for $10 is a solid deal in my opinion. Will update if anything changes (about halfway through campaign so far)

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'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.
