A good depiction of the western front.

Excerpt: This game for what it represents is realitic to the period. The planes are well formatted and the levels are thaught through. Despite only a small selection of planes this game is enjoyable for the more casual combat flight simulator fan. The planes are all classics of their period like the Me109 or the Spitfire. The missions are for the most part origional and enjoyabe despite sometimes long meandering flights to the target.
Excerpt: This is a simulation very much like Microsofts excellent Combat Flight Simulator, but to my mind it comes out second best. It boasts an excellent selection of aircraft, which on the ground are very difficult to handle. Try to take off and the torque from the engine/engines makes the aircraft slew to one side of the runway. This slew if uncorrected causes the aircraft to spin around in small circles at high speed which is very unlifelike.
Excerpt: When you start up fighter suadron you're immediately taken back to the 1940's with genuine speeches and tunes playing on a radio throughout the menu screens. The game itself has genuine planes and locations which featured in the second world war with plenty of scenarios involving everything from enemy planes to submarines.
Excerpt: When I purchased this game I was under the impression that I was buying realistic WW2 flight simulation, much like European air war for example. But in reality this game is not well suited to the WW2 flight simulation enthusiast, it is more a sort of game for people who want to tweak the aircraft and play around with the flight models. I found the scenery unrealistic and there was no campaign. You can only do single missions.
Pros: You can tweak the flight model ect . . . . . . . .
Cons: Not a good flight sim for people who want to fly a careerin WW2
