The first one is better

Summary: I like the first one better the planes were more believable and the story was better .If you want to fly jets in a game you should get hawks or some other modern aircraft game . Graphics wise it is way more superior like when you are in Egypt that was cool. It was just to many strange and different planes I know they came with strange design in ww2 but I thought they would at least have the p-51 as a playable plane instead of having to unlock it.
Summary: Pros: 1)Six axis controller is great fun and makes flying a more intuitive experience. 2)Game offers an interesting customization feature to slowly allow you to improve the technology of your aircraft. Cons: 1)Very Formulaic. Character development is weak, and the story line is melodramatic(in a very bad way). Your wingmen are full of trite cliche phrases that detract from being able to be immersed in the game playing experience.
Summary: Must be played almost exactly in the sequence it was written for. Some levels make no sense but must be played inn the way written. Could not finish due to unknown path on level where girl is rescued in France by landing plane on street. No way to get past flak. All logical ways are not permitted as plane control is taken over by game. No thinking allowed. Must go through flak. Can not make it without full health but game will not save unless finish level.
Summary: This is better than the first title with pretty good graphics and scenery but very unrealistic flying qualities. It's not like a flight simulator at all. Aircraft instrumentation is primitive. It reminds me of the Star Wars vehicles more than an airplane. It works better for me with a joystick instead of the PS3 controller. Very poor documentation adds to the frustration.
A marked improvement on the original but still too corny

Summary: I played Blazing Angels 1 some time ago (I may have even done a review on it, I cant remember) - this game was released a couple of years after the original and I think Ubisoft took on board most of the feedback comments from gamers from the original instalment. Gameplay Firstly, its a bit smoother...a bit, a couple of times I blatently clipped a rock and I kind`ve went through it with no damage, but the controls are more repsonsive.
Pros: Good gameplay and graphics are better
Cons: Programming still a little shakey, corny storyline
