Visually I thought this game was very well put together; from the details on the plane I just shot down to the ruins of Berlin. The controls were easy to get ahold of and the attributes of each plane matched its performance. The problem I had with it though was that I did beat it in 1 week of nightly playing; making it an easy game. Online play was fun, but tought to find a full match. And lastly it took a while to get used to the turning on the screen, I caught myself a couple times turning with it.
There were two major things that disappointed me about this game. First, for an HD platform, it looked rather pedestrian and dull. But, the second aspect that drove me crazy was that the weapon sight is so tiny that it's extremely difficult to hit an enemy. I returned my rental immediately, glad I didn't buy it.

Blazing Angels is a great WW2 squadron game, but the game I feel lacks overal campaign storyline, as well as co-op capability. If you are intrested in a fighter simulation multiplayer game I would hold out, but overal the gameplay and graphics of Blazing Angels is nice and smooth, and realistic.
