I'm more of a first person shooter fan myself, but when a good flying game comes out, I can't resist. This is one of those games. All of the fighting you do in this game is in the ETO. No missions in the pacific. Many games focus on fancy graphics and emotion-evoking cut scene's, but lack in the actual game play. This game is just the opposite. Every single plane in this game looks as if it were crafted by the gods of console and PC games. The selection of Aircraft is one that you won't see in ANY other game. You have your standard fighters, like the P-51D, Me-109, and Supermarine Spitfire. But that wasn't enough. There are more unique, and less well known aircraft, such as the Yak, Bristol Blenheim, A-20G Havoc, and a host of other planes you just don't see all the time. This factor alone gives this game a huge advantage. Along with outstanding graphics, detail, and variety, the tasks you are given are accurate to WWII. Such as close air support for Russian troops at stalingrad, Pre-Assault bombardment during the Italian Campaign, and even a fighter escort for one of the most revered bombers of all time, the B-17 flying fortress. This game offers an experience for those of you who are looking for more than just a point and shoot flying game like Ace Combat or Blazing Angels.

The game is a more realistic take on games such as blazing angels one and two. The game play is fantastic besides the A.I. which is slightly lacking. Some people would complain about the "jerkyness" of the planes but it is realistic for planes of that time. I applaud the makers of this game for trying to really get a good sense of realism into the game. If you want one of the Best flight SIMULATORS on xbox this is your game if not you can go back to blazing angels.
