Very realistic

Harry Pandolfino, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is probably the most realistic flight sim I've ever played. It looks like every switch, dial, and control that was on the real B-17 is accurately reproduced in this game, and all of them are fully functional with the click of a mouse button. Once you've played this game, you will know the real pre-flight procedure in a real B-17, you will know how to feather an engine in a real B-17, and you will know how to operate a Norden bombsight.

Better than I expected

  • 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 is a great game!!!!

Caleb Heath McGraw, Amazon

  • Summary: B-17 Flying Fortress is a good game for several reasons. It has great historical accuracy. It has real targets that were of importance to the 8th airforce at that time. Some of the game modes are:1) Bomber campaign. In this, you command a B-17, and 10 men who flew it. It has a file containing everything about every crew member. 2) Squaderon campaign. In this you command a squaderon of B-17s.

Awesome game while learning some history

  • Summary: I love this game! Technical glitches aside (in my opinion, minor), the graphics and playability are excellent, if you have the patience to learn how to fly the plane. This game is best suited for students of military history or who love the B-17 (and I fit both those descriptions being an Army Reserve officer). Too many of the reviews I have seen talk about the technical merits or the graphics of this game.
