Summary: Heroes Over Europe is an action/flight game, revisiting the action in the key European air battles of WWII, following the stories of three allied pilots and their actions in the war, from the invasion of France to the devastation of Berlin in 1945.
Summary: Heroes Over Europe is a World War II air combat game that lies firmly in the arcade category. While this means you can jump into a Spitfire and shoot down Nazi planes without having to worry about losing ammunition or stalling your plane, it also results in a game that just isn't rewarding to play.
Pros: Very easy to pick up and play, Good menu presentation, Good musical score

Conclusion: While there are certainly more pros than cons with Heroes Over Europe, it could have been better. Nix the annoyances, add more variety of missions and offer more modes and you have yourself one helluva game.
