Horrible

Blazing Angels PS3

The graphics were not the best. Controls were okay, and game play okay. I just thought it would look better on the PS3.

Fair

Visually stunning, but quickly boring.

I was really looking forward to this game. I thought I was even going to buy it...and then I played it.

Well it sure is a pretty game. Besides the graphics, there's really nothing left. The story mode isn't very exciting, and the missions are either way too easy, or next to impossible.

While this is one of the top 10 PS3 games in my book, it's only because there aren't that many more that have been released.

Worth a rental, if you have an HD TV. It was gorgeous on my 56" 1080p.

This came looks very polished and clean. Having never played the 360 version I have no basis for comparison, but I have played this game non stop since I got it. Split screen coop multiplayer.

Example: I played the pearl harbor level. We started off in our hangers it took us longer to start our engines since they weren't warmed up. We had to take off from a runway with wreckage of planes in our way (Nice touch). Then fight off a huge force of Zero's and bombers. The atmosphere and graphics made me feel the threat of being in a real dogfight.

The planes handle very differently which is great since my buddies enjoy different handling than I do. So we ended up developing our own style of play. Single player has innovative levels (Like flying through a sandstorm to take recon pictures of german basis using only your radio signal to track them down, while taking anti aircraft fire.) I only gave it an 9 because I haven't gotten used to the motion sensitive controls yet. Very hard to use but I'm sure I'll get used to it and probably prefer it later.
