I have played many aviation games, and after playing this game I am very disappointed with it. The game offers several flight control options, but after playing with them for several hours, I never found a control that felt good. In addition the graphics were very poor. I was very excited to get this game, but after playing it for several hours I immediately put it back in the mail.
I wouldn't say I'm a HUGE fan of flight sim type games, but they do provide a nice distraction from time to time. The only thing this game has going for it is the ties to historical battles. Everything else, I thought, was super weak. Graphics? Really bad. Gameplay? Not good. Music? On the loading and home screens, AWESOME, but in game? Bad. On the "simplified" setting, this game is WAY too easy. It's literally like "Fly here, drop a bomb, go home, mission complete." And on simulation, it's ridiculously hard.
Final Word: If you're a big flight sim buff and enjoy historical WWII battles, this is your jam. If not, look elsewhere.
