Good

Controls nearly ruin it, still a good game.

This is an overall fun game that I would recommend if you enjoy the dog fighting genre. That said, the controls truly feel as if they were designated by someone who never actually played using the controls.

The main problem is that the R3 stick is your speed control (up = faster, down = brake, not like a throttle) as well as your rudder control.

Unfortunately there are intense sequences where you may want to use the rudder and brake which is very difficult as you have to find the perfect diagonal position to brake and rudder-turn simultaneously. You get used to it over time, but it's rather infuriating.

What's more infuriating is they waste the perfect rudder buttons (R1 and L1) on extra lock on and weapon buttons! (R2 and L2 are primary weapon and lock-on target, respectively, R1 and L1 are secondary weapon and lock on objective, respectively.)

Other than that it's a fun game with plane customization, intense dog-fighting, and a plethora of almost painfully corny dialog. All in all, worth a rent, I'd probably buy it if I saw it for less than $10 in a used games bin.

Didn't have many pf the WWII planes I was hoping for but what it does have was very fun to fly. Great attempt at a WWII flying sim. Needs to be built on though. If they'll work on it and improve it with new and different planes this would be an excellent sim.

this game is a complete and utter failure by Ubisoft. the planes fly like hovering go-carts. the physics are non existent, and the story in dull.
