NDS Review - 'Spitfire Heroes: Tales of the Royal Air Force'
27 July 2008
Summary: Spring 1940. German forces occupy Europe and prepare to invade England. Britain’s survival depends on the courage of a handful of men: the pilots of the RAF. Join the squadron and scramble your Spitfire on missions to shift the balance of power in WWII.
Conclusion: The models are well detailed, which is definitely a point in the game's favor, but the terrain textures look like something out of a flight sim from back in the early 90's. Moreover, the DS's small screen makes it very difficult to identify targets at long ranges, and all the detail in the world on the various aircraft in this game means nothing if you rarely get more than a The game's audio is serviceable but not outstanding.
Spitfire Heroes: Tales of the Royal Air Force review (DS)
1 April 2008
Excerpt: It’s a shame. This game reeks of wasted potential. While the World War II setting is certainly appealing, being forced to take down the Germans with a single plane isn’t. There could have been so much more here – tactical bombings, NPC allies, you name it – but you’ve just got some wings, a couple of machine guns, and a prayer.
Excerpt: Name: Spitfire Heroes: Tales Of The Royal Air Force Genre: WWII Flight Combat Platform: DS God bless Destineer. They are a relatively new publisher who specializes in finding unknown and underfunded developers and publishing their (generally crappy) titles. It’s a shame, really, when you look at the extremely high production values that Destineer prides themselves on.
