I was never fond of flying games, i found them to jarbled and boring, but this game was off the hook, i mean if you want to play a flying game, this is it, i'm renting part 2 right now, i need it. this game deals with the germans and the japenese, from Dunkirk, to Pearl Harbor and back to Berlin, this game has it all. Top Notch, Thanks game fly for sending it and thanks Ubisoft for making it. Frickin tight.

I first played this game on wii and I thought it was pretty fun using the interactive controls, though I thought it actually made the game more difficult. On PS3 I was pleased with the different game controls and I had a lot of fun with this game. As a qualifying note: I am a big fan of the History oriented war games so this game was something I probably would have enjoyed even if it were sub-par... that being said I really enjoyed most of the aspects of this game. If you like WWII History and flying games you will definitely enjoy this game. As you progress through the game you also progress through the History of both the Alied and Axis powers' aviation technology (with historically accurate machines and technology). You gain access to newer more powerful and specialized war planes. The game play takes you through many historically referenced arenas of WWII that are at least somewhat historically accurate as well. The graphics are right on par with what you should expect from a PS3 game (especially an early game that was developed for multiple platforms). The difficulty of the game is about a C+. Some things are pretty easy and others seem to be overly difficult. This game is long enough to keep even an experienced gamer going for a while, but it is not overly long (pretty well balanced). I also found it interesting that they made an effort to incorporate dog fighting with land and sea attack as well - though on a historical note, they did make it a little silly to have bombing capability from pure fighters... Overall the game was very fun and fairly challenging... This is a game I could honestly see myself owning, just to go back and re-fight some great air battles every now and again when I get the urge to blow some stuff up!
