Summary: This game is very fun and the game play is realistic and easy enough. However Star wars rogue leader has more action and missions. but the price of this game means you can have both and enjoy both.

Summary: Just getting into it ,but the booklet states that a wide selection of aircraft are with skill available, from the slow and encumbered Ju87b to the DeHaviland Mosquito, one of the fastest machines before jets. A must for everyone interested in WW2 aircraft and to be able to take them into combat, be it on a TV, is truly remarkable.
Summary: i love flying games and being British, i love leaving reality and strapping into a spitfire and showing the germans how its done, after all thats what video games are for? they let you live your dreams. unfortunately this one doesnt. i was so hoping that this would be that desperately needed brilliant flying game for the xbox, but its not. it looks okey...ish and theres a nice selection of planes, theres even some very decent missions here.
Summary: If, like me, you were brought up with the dream of the Spitfire and the Hurricane and trying to defeat the "Hun" in aerial combat, this is the game for you. Some shortcomings with the handling of the aircraft and certain marques being missing but apart from that the challenges are challenging and the game play great fun. Snag is it is far easier to "knock down" your opponent than it is for him to reciprocate! Still it is a great, as my kids say, chugga chugga game.
Summary: Never have I in all my born days been confronted with utter rubbish! The flying simulation is too linear, aeroplanes do not react in the way potrayed in this game making the game play irritating. The games are simple and undemanding, the graphics are not what I would expect on an advanced machine such as the xbox. The scenario is yet another mickey mouse Yank twist on history with the good ol' US of A showing us weeny little Brits how to do it.
Summary: I bought this game after reading the reviews on this site. This game really isn't worth the money. Good points Graphics and sound effects are very good. Missions are good, from airial combat missions over land and sea to sinking U boats and destroyers with torpedos. As your experience increases you unlock new weapons and new aircraft. Bad points * This is the first flight simulator I've played that you can't do a barrel roll.

Summary: The successor to old PC favourite 'Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe' is a fun aerial blast that plays fast and loose with both physics and history. However, the graphics don't exactly break new ground and the missions are pretty easy. Of course, this game has no pretence of being a simulation, but for me it just doesn't do justice to the legacy of SWOTL which managed to merge attention to detail & historical accuracy with enjoyable gameplay.
