Pretty fun flying against the Japanese and finally a game not involving Europe. I'd have to say the best part of the game was flying the dive bombers. Hearing the whine of the engines while streaking in to deliver those 1000# bombs at over 350 mph was pretty fun I'd have to admit.

Game seems like a lot of fun, but it's extremely difficult to get rolling. The first mission slings you into defending Pearl Harbor, and it's so hard to earn upgrade points that it makes the first couple of missions difficult. There are some glitches with physics, for example, you can have a mid-air collision with another aircraft and you bounce off heading in some random direction (and survive with little damage if you are flying a plane with decent armor). Or, more that once, I stalled at very low altitude and bounced off the ground, being able to continue flying.

On the other hand, the graphics are great, the controls are pretty realistic (I only flew with the pro controls, not the arcade), and the variety of planes available to unlocks seems impressive.

Couldn't wait for it to come up but now it's out and it was below average. The controls were a little difficult and it got boring a little to fast. Graphics and sound were alright. Don't buy, rent.
