Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII
23 July 2007
Excerpt: Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII shipped last year on the Xbox 360 and is now making its way to the PS3. While most of the game remains untouched from previous versions, the PS3 version features a few extras, including new planes and missions.
Excerpt: Blazing Angels is an arcade-style flight sim set in World War II, and enables players to jump right into air combat action, and work their way up from being a rookie through to an ace squadron leader.
Summary: April 10, 2007 When this landed on my desk to review, I had my doubts - of the forty million or so World War II games released during my years of gaming, I can count the ones I've enjoyed on one hand.
Conclusion: Ubisoft was wise to release �Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII� on Playstation 3 and fill a much-needed SIXAXIS motion control void, but in the process of rushing it out the door, the developers appear to not have had enough time with the final console hardware required to optimize framerates and...
Excerpt: appeared last year on the Xbox 360 and PC, and while it met with some decent critical acclaim, it hardly qualified as a must-have for either platform.

Summary: Originally released on the Xbox 360 and other platforms nine months ago, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII is now getting its turn on the PlayStation 3. Like the other versions, the PS3's Blazing Angels is a very standard mission-based air combat game that doesn't offer much of a challenge.
Pros: Campaign has a good length to it, Tilt support for flying feels pretty good
Cons: No voice chat support, Long-winded pilot voices get in the way, Frame rate drops to somewhere near zero when you fly close to explosions
Excerpt: Blazing Angels may be the first flight game to sport SIXAXIS controls, but that doesn't mean it's any more innovative. Fortunately, the game itself isn't half bad. games. Maybe it was growing up with a grandfather that was an Air Force jet test pilot (back before they did such pussy stuff as "wear...
Blazing Angels has a decent campaign and a fair amount of online options, but its standard gameplay and a lack of online competition prevent it from being very exciting.

Summary: Still somewhat hot on the heels of Ubisoft's last World War II flight combat game, which was released on the PC late last year, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII arrives. This is about as standard as a mission-based flight game can get--you'll get to bomb targets, participate in dogfights, and...
Pros: Good multiplayer options--provided you can find anyone else playing
