Birds of Steel Review

GamerNode
23 May 2012
  • Excerpt: A plethora of games use the theater of war as their centerpieces, relying solely on the battles fought by ground troops. With first-person shooters still on the rise thanks to Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo, it’s no wonder why the trend has continued for over the past decade. It’s rare then, when a developer decides to tell the story of conflict through navies or aerial forces.
  • Pros: Enjoyable combat, Mission editor and unlocks add longevity, Visual touches like anti-air shells add great ambiance
  • Cons: Unsatisfying competitive multiplayer, Aimless flying for minutes on end, Nothing truly wows

  • Conclusion: Birds of Steel had real potential. It had the visuals, the historical missions and the online co-op and head-to-head action. The controls pretty much ruined the experience. A little bit more work on those and this game is up there with the IL-2's of the world.

Review - Birds of Steel

Game.ie
20 March 2012
  • Summary: Flying. It’s the shit, am I right folks? Honestly, what’s not to love? The speed. The freedom. The scope. There’s just one problem... Though I REALLY want to like flight simulators, I just don’t. I reckon the bulk of gamers might echo these sentiments too. And for this reason alone, many gamers won’t enjoy Birds of Steel . I didn’t, not really. But as a flight sim, it’s actually rather spiffing! In Birds of Steel, Planes fly less good without both wings.

  • Conclusion: Jag är glad att jag har spelat Birds of Steel, det har visat mig en ny sida av flygspelen. Tidigare har jag varit av den insikten att flygspel är antingen eller, en simulator eller ett actionspel. Det här spelet har visat mig att ett flygspel kan vara båda delarna utan att det behöver bli bristande i kvalité. Spelet skapar en miljö som är mer än godkänd ur ett grafiskt perspektiv, samtidigt som spelet ger mig en underhållande känsla av närstrider.
  • Pros: • Stor variation i uppdragen • Ett garage på över 100 flygplan • Svårighetsnivåer som gör skillnad • Bra balans mellan simulator och action
  • Cons: • All briefing upprepas väl inne i uppdraget • En del utmaningar är låsta till en bestämd svårighetsnivå

Birds of Steel: alla fine, è un simulatore o no?

gamemag.it
19 May 2012
  • Summary: Non si possono che iniziare le conclusioni con la risposta alla domanda che abbiamo utilizzato come titolo dell'articolo: Birds of Steel è un simulatore di volo? Sicuramente ha un ottimo modello di volo, con l'aereo che reagisce prontamente e realisticamente ai comandi dei giocatori. Rimane, però, semplificato in molti aspetti, tra i quali l'impossibilità di intervenire su un alto numero di comandi all'interno della cabina di pilotaggio, il che semplifica soprattutto le...
  • Pros: Ogni azione di guerra richiede il rispetto di una rigida procedura, Ottima ricostruzione storica, Alto livello di sfida, Divertente deathmatch a 16 giocatori, Ha pochi rivali sul mercato
  • Cons: Poca imprevedibilità nelle missioni, Scarso numero di unità terrestri e navali nemiche, Non è una simulazione a tutti gli effetti

Test : Birds of Steel (PS3)

Gamekult.com
30 March 2012
  • Summary: Grâce à l'exigence de son pilotage et la richesse de son contenu, Birds of Steel réussit à capter sérieusement l'attention en délivrant des dogfights tendus et gratifiants. Le problème, c'est que cette suite paraphrase totalement Birds of Prey sans apporter de véritable plus-value au jeu et en filant droit sur les mêmes écueils. Mise en scène poussive, missions basiques et ennuyeuses, Gaijin Entertainment entonne la même ritournelle sans rien trouver à redire.
  • Pros: Le réalisme du pilotage, Certaines batailles bien tendues, Contenu riche
  • Cons: Mise en scène lymphatique, Missions ennuyeuses, Décors mornes, Sticks analogiques trop sensibles

  • Summary: Birds of Steel is niet wat we hadden verwacht. Zeker niet als we kijken naar de screenshots van de game, lijkt het erop alsof we een heel andere vliegtuig-sim zaten te spelen. Laat op erg veel vlakken steken vallen waardoor de game al snel in de kast komt te staan. Voor de sim-fans zal dit misschien een kans zijn om het vliegen nog beter onder de knie te krijgen en het vervolgens online verder uit te vechten.
  • Pros: Hoog simulatie gehalte..., ... welke ook uit te zetten is, Mooie documentaire beelden over de Tweede Wereldoorlog
  • Cons: Grafisch zeker geen topper, Zeer korte missies, Wordt snel eentonig, Veel framedrops
