Summary: I am a huge W.W.2 buff, so I was happy to hear about an arial combat game set in France in the 1940s. The graphics are not what I would expect from Lucus Arts. They can do better, and they have done better. The gameplay is just plain hard. In the German Bomber, as soon as I get close enough to see my target I'm crashing and bruning in the ground. It has realalistic sounds and it incorperates history well.
Summary: I was eagerly waiting for this game just so I could fly a P-38. Even though I haven't unlocked the bird yet this game has been so much fun. You start off with a Hawker Hurricane and then you enter challenges to unlock additional planes like the Spitfire and a JU-88 bomber. You get to man an Anti-aircraft gun while your Spitfire was being prepped in the second mission. The only reason this game didnt get 5 stars is because the play action wasnt as good as Crimson Skies.
A heck of a lot fo fun, but is open for improvement

Summary: The perfect flight combat game? quite possible. For those of you who want to climb in the cockpit of a historic warbird and just fly around a blow enemies up, this is the game for you. Flight is easy, and not realistic. The sounds are great, and game play is excellent. Why only 4 stars then? The game has lots of room for improvement. Dislikes: 1: There are no instant action ground attack missions or gun turret missions.
In a word - FANTASTIC! - The Mechassault of WWII sims.

Summary: I read reviews posted carefully and decided to rent the game first. I am glad I did. I quickly went out and bought it! I should start by saying that this is the "Mechassault" version of a WWII flight simulator. Great sound effects, excellent graphics, and extremely playable - for quick games or for extended play and DOGFIGHTS! Secondly, I am a huge WWII history reader/airplane, tank, ship modeller/ and avid History channel WWII watcher.
Summary: Love the WWII planes, I think that this is a well rounded game, get to play around with building up the planes, you can change the fly style of the planes..Example real flight,simulated, balanced. Lets you feel what the plane would hve felt like to fly. Easy game to get into.
Summary: Yes, if you want some honest advice, here It is "DO not buy this game". I bought it 2 hours ago and i played it for about 5 minutes and i am done with it i will returned it tomorrow. The graphics in this game are horrible. It looks like te old play station or nintendo 64. I believe that says it all. It's your choice, but in the event you decide to buy it you will want to return it the same day.
Take a history class before they write a review!!!

Summary: At what point during WWII did we fight the "commies"? The answer is never. We were at war with, Germany, Italy,and Japan, none of which are "commies". We were allies with the Soviet Republic, or better known in some circles as the "commies". By the way the game looks really cool!
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.
