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!
