Air Conflicts: Secret Wars
28 January 2012
Excerpt: Air Conflicts: Secret Wars offers perhaps the best flight mechanics around, with crisp, responsive controls and well designed combat that never disappoints. So if you’re even a casual fan of aerial combat, this budget priced release is one you’ll want to run out and add to your collection right now.
Conclusion: Air Conflicts may have a lot of bad things going for it but it’s not a lost cause. It’s clear a solid attempt was made to make this a quality title, it can be fun, and at a budget price, it’s hard to falter it for not being the greatest.
Summary: Air Conflicts: Secret Wars is an action-packed aerial combat simulation where players can experience the real heat of battle in seven thrilling campaigns and nearly 50 varied missions in historic First and Second World War battles with 16 meticulously detailed and accurate machines from the eras.
Excerpt: It’s no surprise that combat flight simulations are set during World War II. It’s really the height of the truly “visible” dog fight era, before planes and electronic systems became so fast that combat takes place over kilometres rather than meters.
Excerpt: Flight simulators are not exactly burning up the charts on consoles, even more so when they feature the days of WWII. Still, it is hard not to appreciate a solid game when one comes along. Air Conflicts...
Pros: + Great flight controls, + Dog fighting is excellent, + Multiplayer is a blast
Cons: Lack of people playing online, Forgettable narrative, Horrid load times
Excerpt: Flight-combat’s one genre that could definitely use some good storytelling. And to its credit, Air Conflicts makes an honest attempt at weaving an intriguing narrative into the classic World War II arcade/flight-sim formula.
Pros: + Smooth flight mechanics., + Lots of stuff to blow up!
Excerpt: As period pieces go, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars does a nice job of placing you into realistic settings during the two World Wars, including several in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Germany.
Conclusion: Just make sure for the 'officer' achievements (where you pick an RAF/German/Russian plane) that you do these in Team Deathmatch or Capture The Flag as you won't get those achievements in regular deathmatch. The bitches of the bunch are the two 'Good Show' achievements.
Summary: 1941. Rommel and his Afrika Korps advance across Libya towards Tobruk. As the Luftwaffe descend only one person stands in their way. Deedee! A chirpy young smuggler and daughter of an ace WWI pilot. A lady whose sole interests are money, smoking and horrific voice acting.
