B-17: Fortress in the Sky

Excerpt: I'm sure that some people will buy B-17: Fortress in the Sky based simply on its packaging and subject matter. Big mistake. While being able to take command of a B-17 bomber and man any of its stations has a strong allure, the reality is that this game is merely a collection of three different mini games, none of which is very good.
Summary: B-17: Fortress in the Sky is a simplistic World War II-themed shoot-'em-up that lacks variety and panache.
Pros: Not your typical shoot-'em-up, Radio chatter, engines, and guns combine for authentic wartime audio
Cons: Gunning down tiny airplanes and dropping bombs on fuzzy ground targets gets old quick, You hardly have any control over your own plane, All 25 missions are basically the same, Graphics vary from plain to just plain ugly
