Not what I was expecting

There are two WWII fighter planes coming out at the same time. Heroes over Europe is the first one I have tried and I am disappointed. The controller layout is terrible, Ace Kill is a useless feature, the best quality of the game is that there are no heat seeking missiles like in Blazing Angels. The missions are way to long and if you crash or are shot down you can expect to spend 30 minutes trying to get back to that point. Also the token mission of flying low so not to get hit by flak was terrible. The Heroes is nice that you do not have to keep changing speeds to track bombers, and you spend less time on ground targets and more time on fighters and bombers. Not enough for me to spend time trying to beat the game. I am 3/4 of the way threw the game and I will take my chances with bird of prey

Wow, not much to say on this game. The graphics aren't that great, the plane controls are just sloppy, and the dialogue is pretty cheesy. Add in long levels that make you feel like you're doing nothing and well...you get this game. This game could've been a lot better, but I guess time just wasn't of the essence.

I might have liked this game if it had been released before IL2. The aircraft are too hard to control, you are constantly over-correcting when trying to hone in on a target. There is no mini map, altitude gauge, speed gauge or any view other than 3rd person chase plane. all of these are aggrivating but what ruins the gameplay is blowing through several easy missions then getting stuck on the last part of the same mission for several days knowing that if the controls didn't suck you would have beaten it on the second or third attempt. If you rent this game you will find yourself cramming it into the return envelope and putting it in the mailbox a 2am thinking that there is more to life than playing video games.

This game = FAIL
