They weren't kidding when they said SIMULATION

Jason T. O'Brien, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been waiting for this game since I first read about in mid year 2000. When I found out it was available, I rushed out to get it that same night! First off, let me start by saying that the design, concept and graphics all rate 5 stars. This is one ambitious game! Playing as any 1 of 10 crew positions was something I couldn't wait to try.

Repetative

  • Summary: Same thing over and over. I played the OLD Microprose B-17 on my 486 20MHz computer, and other than a graphics improvement, this is not any real improvement. If anything, because the older game had to rely on good gameplay as opposed to eye-candy, the older game may be better in that respect. You take off, you gather in a group, you go to the target, taking gunner spots on the way there, you get on IP, you take the bombier spot, you drop, and you fly back home.

Exasperating

  • Summary: I agree with everything said in "They weren't kidding... SIMULATION"(earlier review). The game IS extremely complex. Stunningly realistic in its visuals, it suffers from overambition. You can be (and often HAVE to be) a fly on too many walls. You can view the formation in flight from outside your aircraft, or jump inside and observe or fully take over every position in your plane (pilot, bombardier, tailgunner, etc.) 1.

Dur comme le vrai ( B-17 Flying Fortress : The Mighty Eight )

  • Excerpt: Pour les fanas de simulation aérienne, ce jeu a le mérite d'apporter une touche d'originalité non négligeable. Après des moments relativement difficiles pour apprendre les ficelles de ce B17, on prend vite plaisir à gérer ses ordres de missions, ses équipages, et sa vie !
  • Pros: Originalité, durée de vie
  • Cons: difficulté d'apprentissage

  • Summary: un jeu tres bien fait graphiquement, tres realiste, mais qui demande un bonne connaissance pour pouvoir en profiter pleinement. Les combinaisons de touche sont nombreuses et je vous conseil de vous trouver un "copilote" pour vous faciliter le pilotage

  • Summary: Wollten sie nicht auch schon immer mal Befehl über einen der größten Bomber der Geschichte haben? Dann steigen Sie ein bei B-17 Flying Fortress. In diesem Spiel haben Sie das Kommando über alle 10 Mann einer Bomberbesatzung. Während des Einsatzes werden alle Personen vom Computer gesteuert aber Sie können jederzeit, per Mausklick, eine beliebige Person übernehmen.
  • Pros: Brillante Grafik / tolle Atmosphäre
  • Cons: Keine Langzeitmotivation / Hardwarehungrig
