I did not like the control of the planes in this game. The steering and handling of aircraft were not realistic. I played this game for a few hours and then didn't play it. I'm glad that I only rented it.

The graphics, storyline and gameplay of this game are all pretty good. I would put them on the order of an 8 or 9. The problem I have with this, which is why I'm sending it back prematurely before finishing it and giving it a 5, is that some missions are just stupid. I don't mean stupid as in they're hard to get past...I mean just stupid. If you decide to play this game, you'll see what I mean when you get to the mission where the game asks you to land a damaged plane while the game is forcing your plane to swerve all over the screen and spin around in circles, all without you even touching the controller. I fail to see how the game developers thought that could be fun.
However, this is past the halfway point for the missions. If you want to have some fun for a few days, I would say give it a shot...I just wouldn't get your hopes up. I'm sure there are other missions in there too which are just plain stupid and do not make for anything other than miserable gameplay.
Being a relatively new PS3 owner, I will admit that my expectations may be off a bit, but this game just did not do it for me. I appreciate a good air combat game, but this one lacked a few things that I need to have in place:
1) Unstable controls 2) Unable to distinguish targets in the midst of combat (far too much going on) 3) Not colorblind friendly (too many of the colors run together)
I guess that I'll just stick with the highest rated games from now on. I sent this one right back to GameFly... express mail!
