Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II
The Gamers Temple

Excerpt: Air Conflict: Aces of World War II has earned a few distinctions in the annals of PSP gaming. The first is that it's the first straight PC to PSP game port I've ever played, and I imagine the first to appear on the system. Unfortunately, the developers didn't bother to compensate for the difference in screen size between the typical PC monitor and the PSP's screen.
Excerpt: Similar to the setup of a racing game, each individual mission belongs to a series of missions. This seems like an interesting presentation until you discover that the consequence of losing is also similar to that of a racing game. When you die, the mission is over…for now. Rather than being given the opportunity to try it again, you’re automatically taken back to the main menu, at which point you can now select the campaign mode and start again.
Excerpt: I really wanted to like Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II . I'm a history buff, and I like combat flight simulators. Unfortunately, every time I've played a World War II air combat game, I've met with disappointment. Aces of World War II continues that trend -- it suffers from uninspired gameplay and a serious lack of polish. I can't find a way to put this mildly - compared to many other PSP games, Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II is an eyesore.
Excerpt: Flight-combat sims are an unfilled niche on handheld platforms, which makes Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II a notable addition to the PSP's library--and an enjoyable one, once you get used to its idiosyncrasies. The in-air action is entertaining, you can tackle the enemy as one of four countries, and you'll soar above a variety of different locations, from the Egyptian desert to the snowy shores of Finland.
Pros: Fun dogfights, A variety of aircraft, environments, and weather conditions, Multiple campaigns, lots of missions
Cons: Landing is inordinately difficult, Bizarre mission structure, Tiny onscreen text is a big annoyance
