Fair

Not a bad game....

but not the best. If you have trouble playing flying type games with the controler then the Wii is for you. The controls for this one is right on target. But with the lack of story line and the direction on what you need to do hurts the game play for me. I love WWII games but this one was not up to my par. But don't get me wrong here it is a good game. I would give it a try and you may like it more than I did.

Good

Fun but controls don't hold up.

This game is actually a lot of fun. The missions and aircraft are quite varied. Using the Nunchuck control scheme is simple and fun. (Take the suggestions of others and hold the Nunchuck in your right hand). If you use the target following camera (button A) it really gives the game a cinematic feel.

The control scheme is also a big con. If you attempt a sharp turn the Nunchuck often looses positional awareness and the plane gets stuck and you can't easily level out. You actually end up twisting your arm all over the place and can end up crashing if low to the ground. The other problem is that the long distance viewing of targets is hard to see and thus can cause eye strain.

Overall the game is fun and is absolutely worth renting. I'm sure there will be better flight sims out that were meant specifically for Wii, rather than a port.

this game was very fun but also very hard. On the wii you have to actually control the game by holding the nunchuck up. Learning how to play this I ended up crashing a lot but after you finish the first level it gets easier. A real fun game for laughs on my part and great with a friend. I give it two thumbs up.
