This game is a really good game. The graphics are amazing. Its one of the few WWII games I like to play and flying simulators at that. I would recommend this game to other people.

If you want an arcade flight game, this title will adjust to your style of play on the lowest difficulty setting. If you want to play a good simulator, just select the simulator level. If you are like most people I know, you will choose the realistic (middle) setting afer becoming comfortable with the training level.

As a former peacetime pilot (strictly recreational), I noticed a few things not readily apparant to some gamers. Stalls on realistic level seems to ocurr entirely too often, for example. Bomb ordinance locations can throw off center of gravity enough to make the aircraft unstable, but it just seemed too predictable for me. Visibility in some warplanes is poor, a point not lost in simulator mode, but perhaps over used.

This is, however, a very solid game which far exceeded my expectations. The graphics look good, and it remains fun to fly. This makes up somewhat for the unrealstic amount of ammo used and "one pilot against the entire enemy airforce missions"'

If you like arcade style flight sims.... where you can shoot down enemy planes and be ace of aces without knowing much about how aircraft really fly. this is the game for you. While I enjoyed playing this game, and shooting up bad guys, this game took arcade flying to the next level. if you are looking for a realistic aircraft sim.... do not get this game. If you are looking for a game that throws you into action gives you a gun and says shoot boy. than this is the one for you.
