Lots of practice and patience

  • Summary: This is an excellent game, but not one that you can really jump right into. It takes a lot of playing to get used to the (MANY) controls and commands. Microprose was quite thourough and everything is pretty darn authentic. If you've got the time and patience this game is very rewarding.......one downside, no joystick calibration? or force feedback....otherwise excellent!

Excellent But....

  • Summary: Things seem a bit repetitive after a while, plus I found it near impossible to hit anything in the turret gunner mode, but other than that its great the graphics are wonderfully detailed (read: need a GOOD computer), it offers some challenge, and alot of flexibility if they would add some dedicated fighter missions then it would be spectacular(I know this detracts from what its called but they added the ability to fly the fighters they should have added a few campaigns)...

Another great flight sim

Joseph H Pierre "Joe Pierre", Amazon

  • Summary: I had another B-17 game some years ago. This one is significantly different. This is a real challenge! First, the instrumentation and interior graphics are very good. They could be improved by allowing the flyer to operate the flight deck controls with the mouse, but that is nitpicking. The exterior graphics are not state-of-the-art, but they are plenty good enough to really experience the game. The sound is good and realistic.

b-17

  • Summary: My always crashes on my Windows-XP Proffesinal. If you buy one and get it to work, it ranks in the top 5 funest flying/fighting games ever. If you have an old computer with Windows-95/98 DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! But, if you have a new PC with Windows-ME and a lot of memory it should work fine. I don't think it works on Mac.

B-17 Flying Fortress

  • Summary: En recherchant un jeu de simulation d'aviation j'ai trouvé ce jeu que je ne connaissais pas. J'ai été séduit par l'idée de piloter un B-17, un engin de guerre formidable qui effectuait les bombardement durant la 2eme guerre mondiale. Le jeu est de qualité mais assez rapidement on s'ennuie car...

Super Action in hohen Lüften

  • Summary: Nun mal los ******************************************************************* Man nannte sie "The Mighty 8th" - das achte Bomberkommando der US Air Force. Jene Truppe, die Tageseinsätze über dem besetzten Europa flog und ausgewählte militärische Ziele mit hoher Genauigkeit traf. Ein wesentlicher Nachteil bei diesen Aktionen war allerdings, dass die Bomber bei Tageslicht leicht zu sehen waren, und somit ein leichtes Ziel für feindliche Flak-Stellungen und Abfangjäger...

Die beste Flugsim des vergangenen Jahres

kenner87, Ciao
5 January 2001
  • Summary: Selten zuvor habe ich eine historische Flugsimulation so intensiv erlebt. Nach European Air War hat Micropose wieder einen tollen Hit gelandet. Mankos gibt es in Sachen Missionsplanung und Bodenmanagment : Gerade Genre Neulinge werden hier allein gelassen. Außerdem wurde auf den angekündigten Mehrspielermodus verzichtet.
  • Pros: gute Flugsim
  • Cons: Grafik
