Summary: A historical World War 2 flight sim, "Wings of Prey" tries to appeal to both casual and hardcore players by including both "arcade" and "simulator" elements. Wings of Prey is a fairly standard World War 2 flight sim. There's fifty-odd planes and six major theaters of the war, including the Battle of Britain and the Invasion of Sicily. However, one major thing that separates WoP from other flight sims is its scaling difficulty.
Summary: I'm a big fan of simulators since 90s and I played lots of them. Recently I enjoyed playing IL2 and less frequently - LockOn. When I purchased this game I probably expected something closer to IL2 with better graphics and other improvements, mostly related to greater capabilities of modern computers. But this game stands much closer to arcade games than to realistic sims like IL2/LockOn. If you find these games way too complex - you might like Wings of Prey.
Summary: After years of playing Microsoft Combat Flight Sim games, (The first WWII is mine and my husbands favorite but doesn't work correctly with the joystick on Windows 7), I searched hard to find another WWII Combat flight sim/game that would work well with Windows 7. This one works and is as close as I could get to the older MS games. The one problem we've had is trying to get the joystick set up with the hat switch for looking around the plane.
Summary: Before you buy this game, maybe it would be a good idea to visit the game forum at yuplay.com and see what the actual game players are saying about this game's performance issues. The game is fun. Skill levels range from a pretty hard Arcade level to a really hard Sim or Realistic level. The forum for the game is full of helpful, knowledgeable people. There are many good flyers playing the game. The graphics are really pretty good.
Summary: I didn't like any of the weapons in this game.I feel that a few human weapons thrown in would have made this game so much better....being limited to two at a time though.I hate when you carry ten big guns around at the same time.Learn from HALO,FEAR and Timeshift,developers.
Summary: Stunning graphics. Interesting game play. Even a story. The best thing about Prey, besides the awesome graphics, has to be the gravity flipping and portal confusion. Adds a new dimension to 3D First Person Shooters. The weapons are cool and blow up and/or disintegrate your enemies in different ways. The enemy adapts to your level. If you are a new gamer, it goes easy on you. If you're a pro, watch out.

Summary: This game can now be found for between $10-20, and is well worth that price. Plenty has been said about the game. The story is well written for an FPS. The handling of death (visible in the demo) and the ease of use of the weapons and pleasant puzzles that are simple enough to keep the pace of the game going are refreshing. That said, keep in mind that that $20 you're thinking about spending on this game will just buy you a single player game.
Summary: I bought this game as a shooter so I am wishing they had some way to let a buyer know that it is also a puzzle game. I don't like puzzle games because they can always make them harder than you can figure out just by being non intuitive. I gave up at the walkway puzzle because I just know that this is the way the rest of the game is going to be.
