  • Excerpt: I lauded it as a great simulator, let down by console controllers. Now I am introduced to Birds of Steel, a new flight simulator with two of the greatest things in gaming: World War II and fighter planes!

  • Conclusion: We’re not going to lie – this isn’t for everyone. Historical flight simulators / games are hardly the top of everyone’s list, but those lamenting the stumble of Microsoft Flight or desiring something new to delve into, there’s plenty here to keep virtual pilots happy.

  • Summary: Combat flight simulators, like real-time strategy games, are a resilient breed which has always struggled to find its place on consoles. A mouse and keyboard control scheme is almost always preferred over a gamepad when it comes to fast-paced strategy games, and flight sims really need a flightstick...

Birds of Steel Review (PS3, Xbox 360)

TheSixthAxis
5 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Birds of Steel is a fairly rare thing. It’s a serious vintage combat flight sim on consoles. It eschews much of the hyperbole of modern combat flyers, avoids the over-the-top action of arcade flyers and pitches itself firmly at the sort of console gamer that avidly watches the History Channel.
  • Cons: Ground scenery gets a little rough around the edges at times., Campaign mode pacing is hampered with repetition., Voice acting makes radio chatter cringeworthy.

21 December 2012
  • Summary: Um es kurz zu machen, Flug-Simulatoren sind wahrlich nicht der Mainstream und somit birgt die Entwicklung solcher Titel oft große Risiken für die Entwickler wie auch den Publisher.
  • Pros: gelungene Simulation, für Einsteiger wie für Profis, 100 Flieger, Achsenmächte und Alliierten, solide Grafik, für jeden Spieler anpassbare Steuerung
  • Cons: matschige Bodentexturen, KI stellenweiße doof, durchschnittliches Missionsdesign

  • Summary: Allzu groß ist das Genre der Flugsimulationen heutzutage nicht mehr vertreten. Man denke nur zurück an den Anfang der 90er Jahre, in denen Microprose noch die absolute Lufthoheit in dem Bereich hatte.
  • Pros: historische Schlachten, kooperative Onlinemodi, vieles zum Freischalten
  • Cons: Umgebungsgrafik manchmal nur mittelmäßig

Expert Review

PlayFrance
7 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Au final, ce Birds of Steel est une bonne adresse pour tous les amateurs de jeux d'avion. Ce qu'il perd en esthétique, il le compense par le réalisme de son pilotage et par le nombre impressionnant d'avions à débloquer.
  • Pros: Trois modes de pilotage, Une centaine d'avions, Des dizaines de missions
  • Cons: Graphiquement, on peut encore mieux faire, Menus peu ergonomiques, Pas de PlayStation Move
