Many people have been dogging on this game. I agree its longevity is not massive but it is a solid game that does just what it says on the box so to speak.

Single player is solid and is not as repetitive or monotonous as some people make out. Agreed once you complete the missions you might not want to replay over and over but there is enough variation to keep you coming back.

Multi Player is where it is at. Maybe it is mano et mano or a full blown death match. Maybe you like some co-op (my personal fav) but this game gets addictive when you and a few buddies take to the skies and try out the scenarios. Bombing runs, taking out the fighter escorts or stopping the kamikaze's. The fun is certainly pretty much non-stop.

The main problem is all the haters quit playing and now many nights it is impossible to get a good game going unless you have a couple of friends who play it. I love the game but wont see myself playing it for more than a couple of months. Well i drink too much caffeine and my attention span is not that good anyhow.

Graphics are fairly good, Playability is excellent. Sound is average and longevity is average.

Overall i would give it an 8 just for the Multi player

I'm a much older gamer, and found this game very realistic and demanding....I couldn't stop playing. The landings lacked some realism...but didn't subtract from my over-all experience

Blazing Angles ...

Blazing Angles is graphically pleasing, the environments are clean and the airplane models are very high poly and well done. But as we all know graphics don't make the game. This title suffers from fairly major framerate issues in parts and gets VERY repetitive. Also worth mention is the survival mode in the arcade for an achievement is quite mind numbing :) 32 planes x 3 waves ... crazy. Worth the rental to check it out but a big no on a buy.

Cheers,
Matt
