Secret Weapons Over Normandy Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: There is no doubt that SWON is a capable arcade type simulation of what it was like to fly fighter planes in WWII. The question remains if people are willing to give up a less thematic dogfighter (Crimson Skies) for one with more authenticity in its presentation.

Secret Weapons Over Normandy

Gamecell
13 September 2004
  • Conclusion: To be honest, I really wasn't expecting much from this game but it turned out to be my surprise hit of the year, it's fun and there are plenty of secret movies, planes and missions to unlock (and you can also go back and redo any mission you've completed to improve your standing).
