Summary: Getting straight to the point, this game just isn't very good, the controls are infuriating and the game play is just naff, I've played every flight game available on the X-box and this is by far the worst. My advice, buy any flight game bar this one.
Summary: I don't know for sure what version the last reviewer was talking about, presumably the PC one, but I've just finished this XBox game and no way is this a 5 star game. It certainly does have outstanding graphics with particularly good weather effects. The general presentation and options available are also more than adequate bettering some more expensive games I've played.
Summary: I was really excited when I bought this game, I Love flight sims to do with WW1 and WW2. When I first played it I thought the graphics where amazing, and had high hopes for the game. But then it crashed and burned miserably. I have played lots of flight sims in my time, but this game didn`t have the realisim you`d expect. For some reason your plane has a radar, and also you can talk to other pilots via some sort of walkie talkie technique.
Is it a sim? Is it an arcade game? No, it's Wings of War!

Summary: I'm a flight simmer not into arcade games but this one has won me over. It's a WW1 flying action game which is very easy to pick up for anyone (joystick strongly recommended). Gameplay is fast and furious. Graphically, the maps/levels are full of detail, like tanks (models are recognisable, eg the French Schnieder), softskins, artillery positions, factories with quarries and coalpits, railways (down to semaphore signals), airfields with hangars, windsocks etc, bridges...
Summary: Wasn't sure what to expect from this game but I was really suprised and impressed when I got it. As you would expect from the title and cover, it's a game set it the era of WW1 and you play a young pilot fighting the hun over the frontline. Luckily for you, the battlefield is in the sky and not in the trenches. There are 12 lengthy missions to complete and loads of different aircraft. The game is really well done and graphics and sound are pretty good!
