Fun, but I didn't like it.

Well, game looks like fun, but it kinda sucks, at least to me. On the bright side, I see at least one Ubisoft title that has subtitles/closed captions, the graphics are awesome, the way the planes move are extremely realistic , I give high praise for all that. Now for the downside...

First off, the controls are hard to master, I tried several configurations and just couldn't quite master them. I never got past the first part where you have to do 10 stunts - I got as far as 7 done, but it's just too difficult to get it right, and if you crash you go back to the very beginning of the stunt set and have to do it over again.. after 15 attempts I got frustrated and gave up. If they would have a checkpoint after each accomplishment maybe that would be better, so I could try again on the last stunt from the last point.. but otherwise when the tutorial stage is just downright frustrating and I just cannot master it, it is time to ship the game back.

They don't have a difficulty level setting so, it's all the same difficulty, which also sucks.

So, overall I give it a 6 - I give it a perfect 10 for graphics and visual, and the fact it has subtitles, but I end up giving it a 6 because the game play sucks, at least for me..

I could not see exactly where my flight path was going (maybe I should have tried it in first person view, I dunno, I was in third person camera) and the plane did not respond well enough to my reaction times, so I ended up crashing a lot, and then have to start all over to do the same 10 stunts all over again, which was just entirely too frustrating.

Oh well. I think the game would be awesome if you can master the controls, but otherwise, if you have a hard time with precision on controls (I.E. if you only play FPS games on the easy or beginner level) , You probably wont get the hang of this one either.

This is a great flying game. It was better than the first one. It is cool and slick.

Don't expect WWII accuracy. Don't expect realistic flying conditions. Don't expect superb PS3 graphics. Don't expect excellent sound.

What can you expect? A flying game that provides unique planes, missions, and flying conditions. They've scaled back from the first game in that the plot is lame, the chatter even MORE annoying (I didn't think that possible!), and the graphics are not as good. With all that said, it's not as bad as it may sound. It's a good filler game to play as you wait on something truly exceptional. I enjoy pushing the planes to their limit, and the added bonus buy on's are pretty cool as well.

Not worth buying, but certainly worth a peek.
