About This Game

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars is an arcade flight simulation set in a world war I + II scenario. During the 7 campaigns the player has to fly and fight through 49 missions. Before taking off, the player can choose between different aircrafts, each with different strengths and weaknesses.
Within the missions the player gets different objectives like patrolling, sneaking, hit & run, bombing and escorting. Objectives are presented as dialogues between different characters. After some missions the player can upgrade one of his skills in order to maneuver the airplanes easier, have more endurance or have your wingman boosted. Further, the player can choose between two control schemes. Arcade and simulation. The first one makes the game easier to control, while the second one gives more options to control the aircraft.
Beside the campaign the game also features several multiplayer modes, local and via internet for up to four players.

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars is an arcade style flight game. This is not a simulator, flight controls are very simple. Missions consist of destroying ground targets, taking out rival aircraft, protecting allies and picking up supplies. I found all the missions to be quite similar after a few rounds. The planes are incredibly easy to control, so you can start divebombing and doing flybys of every tower in no time. The bombs and rockets are a little more difficult to use than the machine guns. I found myself having to loop around and try to hit targets multiple times.

The cutscenes are voice overs over well drawn still frames. The graphics overall could have used some polish. This is definitely a budget game, in that most objects are quite blocky. The resolution settings do not go very high, so you will most likely be playing in a lower resolution than you are used to. The voice acting is not offensive but not great. I couldn't really tell the difference between the male characters.

Don't mistake this for a flight sim. If you are looking for a cheap arcade flight game, you could do worse than Air Conflict. However, the dated graphics and repetitive gameplay will not keep your attention for long.

a suprising refresher.

There are better arcade air combat games out there, but not many . There's defintiely better air combat sims , so if you are looking for a sim style game go else where. This one does offer excellent arcade style air combat.

The good:

Fun easy to pick up game play.
tons of single player missions that vary in length
nice mission variety.
its got top secret jets in ww 2 !

the bad

story seems implausible at times the main character is a woman ( no offence ladies) but durring WW2 i doubt ther were any lady pilots seeing combat
some times the missions seem a bit short.
the aformentioned top secret jet planes are not unlocked till you are near teh end of the game.
feels like a "poor man's" Blazing angels at times.
the graphics are good but not great for this kind of game.


That said i'd give this game a 70% overall. it is a lot of fun especially if you like air plane games that are of the arcade variety like Blazing angels. BUT if you ahven't palyed blazing angels 1 or 2 yet i'd recommend them first before you dive into this game. (i played blazing angels on xbox 360 but you can get both of them on steam as well)

This game looked good. I was in the mood for a good ww2 flight sim. But it was terrible.. I crashed my plane into the ground, and it bounced back. And that was in simulator mode. You don't have to aim, the game does that for you. I don't understand, when they have the physics and graphics, why not add a realistic mode? It could have been a good game, but instead it's completely worthless!

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars is an arcade flying game set in World War 2 with linear storyline. It's not about military power of the Nazi, Red Army or even RAF. It's about a person who try to survive in the war that consumes many other. But of course, you will be joining the Allies in the war against the German. From the desert of Tobruk to the plains and forest of Europe, you fight for your survival.

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars has good gameplay, it's just since the game is about a person, it doesn't have so many great battles and some of it are stealth mission. Still, it's a challenges, not a bad game for me. The graphics is quite good, the sounds are good and the music is kinda good. I still recommend this if you like arcade games.

Rating 6/10

Air Conflicts Secret Wars is a solid arcade style air combat game. Decent graphics and sound, but the gameplay can become repetitive. There seems to be no way to adjust visuals or controls. Very easy most of the time. I enjoyed the experience. Extremely simple to pick up due to its extremely arcadey style.

Fun arcadey flight sim. It's more of an XBL-arcade-tier indie title than a full-fledged flight sim, which is good because I'm terrible at flight sims. The planes seem kinda the same, the missions are uninspired, but if you want to fly around and blow stuff up, this does the trick.

Love this arcade style flight sim fun to play simple controls a little to easy but enjoyable and good story. If you only have an hour or so to spare you can jump straight in and play.

Plus: Great arcade flight simulator! Decent graphics and reasonably challenging gameplay make this a winner. Interesting storyline, and no noticable graphic or audio flaws. Fast load times. Level skip feature, on the off chance you cant get past a level.
Minus: Simulation controls are nigh impossible to smoothly work with. Storyline is kind of wandering. Infantry and paratroopers are rediculously difficult to hit although you are required to at times.
8/10 Overall: For what it is, its a pretty solid little plane game, with decent graphics and sound, and fun gameplay if you use the arcade control scheme with a controller.

Begins slowly and starts to pick up speed when the story progresses.

Unfortunately this game also illustrates very well why action flight sims are a niche product: half-way through the game difficulty suddenly jumps a lot and every missions becomes a grinding bore. You destroy more planes than rambo kills people and you still fail missions. and those tight time limits...

Good buy from a bundle anyways. Just dont pay full price on this!

Very good arcade flight sim at a budget price. Naff static cut scenes but good narrative. Surprisingly good graphics with great lighting and explosion affects. Lots of different locations. If this developer had a bigger budget they could make something special.
