Excerpt: Once again, I am impressed with the graphics on the Dreamcast. AeroWings 2 shows a great image with wonderful frame rates. There is not much ambient detail, but the planes look good. The actually scenery could have been done better, but the HUD and the exterior of the crafts looks good.
Conclusion: Unfortunately, the game goes on a bit of a nosedive when it comes to its presentation. The visuals are crisp, but there isn’t a whole lot of detail nor scenery to look at. There are some nice touches, like a vapor trail following your jet when taking a sharp turn.
Excerpt: CRI's Aerowings was one of the launch titles for the Sega Dreamcast. Featuring a very realistic flight model and graphics that could rival the high end PC flight sims, it was impressive. In fact, it could be considered the first true console flight sim.
Summary: There are some real challenges and interesting missions here for those of you who are console flight sim enthusiasts (yes, all three of you). However, the average player will probably feel as though they've gotten all there is to be had out of the game's single player missions after only a few days...
Pros: Enjoyable gameplay (while it lasts), great plane models.
Cons: Not enough substance, mediocre landscapes, underwhelming sound, sometimes frusterating.
zu lahm war und Deadly Skies zu arcadelastig ist, findet hier eine echte Herrausforderung.
Flugsimulationen in dieser Form findet man kaum auf Konsolen, eher auf PC (Falcon 4.0), die dort aber weitaus simulationslastiger sind.
