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.
Summary: If there's one thing I can say about Destineer it's that they are certainly fond of their niche products. Don't get me wrong, there's certainly nothing wrong with what they are doing. However, in the past few months they have released everything from Homie Rollerz (a racing game about those Mexican-American figurines) to Indianapolis 500 Legends (a racing game about 30 years of one specific race course).
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.
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.
