Showing 1-10 of 10
Not very good.

Summary: Okay, I know the concept for a flight sim for the DS itself was destined to go the way of the Hindenburg, but I am convinced they could have done better. First of all the graphics are terrible. The planes themselves are inaccurate, but looking past that, there are so few options, and you can't choose the plane to fly in a specific mission like you can do on the IL-2 PC version. The missions are all bland and are all pretty much the same - shoot down some enemy aircraft.
Summary: The strength of its play mechanics and attention to detail make it one of the best choices for console-based flight combat. It is thunderingly atmospheric and visually breathtaking. A rousing aerial shooter but sadly rather too easy to complete.
Summary: This is a great WWII simulation game! I am a die-hard fan of aviation sims and a fan ofAviation History as well. This is truly a great game with jaw-dropping graphics. Anyone who likes the Ace Combat series will love this. The only things that ticks me off; is you can't use newly accquired planes in the missions.
Summary: You gotta remember you are on a DS,for a fly and shoot first person shooter, it was worth it. Needs more campaigns and aircraft to choose from true, but change the setting to really challenge yourself. I would say this game is worth about $10. It is not in the same league as the COD series, but it is okay.
Summary: I got this game and i got to say, it is great! You blast people out of the sky, hit them so hard them crash below and go missing in the fire!You got to try this, why your at it, be ready for ships,tanks,planes comeing right toward you! You battle at the skies look down and see ships fireing tanks blowing up, and gone in the flames!
Clarification: The DS VIDEO is Accuracte - The Description is for PC

Summary: As noted elsewhere, it is a DS game and not the flight sim that IL-2 fans are used to NOR the game in the description. As of this writing, the video shown is accurate and that's what you get. If that looks fun, you'll enjoy it. I did - though not at first. I too had a different expectation based on the IL-2 experience from my PC. So it's important to realize the description is for the PC version etc. VERY different. The PC version is really a simulation.
Summary: I'm not sure what game is being offered here but I just bought it and it does not match the discription. Mine has only 3 campaigns and no multiplayer capacity. It is a VERY poorly implemented game with minimal flight controls and poor gameplay. I'm not sure if a 2nd version has been released because the 505 website is so poor there's no info available.
