Welcome pilots!, let me start off by saying this game is truly a great flying game, although it does lack in some areas we will get to that later. let me first break this game down into pros and cons.

pros: the lock on enemy feature is very innovative and is quite helpful in a dogfight. The graphics are AMAZING the aircraft are historically accurate and take damage realistically. The storyline is based on actual events in history. The flying itself feels nice except it does take a little while to get used to the controls. Online play is great fun, this game combines co-op and death match type games which proved to be one of the greatest things about this game. everyone loves dog fighting or going on a bombing run with a buddy over africa :).

cons: the controls in this game although good do take some time to get used to. The missions although varied still felt very repetitive. the voice acting in the game is extremely stereotypical, the germans and japs sound like whiney 13 year olds you hear online all to often.

overall: blazing angels is an excellent arcade flying game, i recommend you play it and enjoy it you wont be let down. :P

i thought this game was pretty tight, i also liked being in real battles of WWII although, there could have been more levels because of how long WWII was. there are like 9 different planes you can use like fighters, bombers, etc.

My only disappointment, Arcade style controls vs Simulator Style. (turn left rather than roll left when pushing left on thumbstick for example).

That said, LOVED the game still. Amazing graphics and I love the lock on view for targets. Very realistic. Love the historical accuracy as well. I would love to see a modern era, Blazing Angle's.....
