Review: Birds Of Steel (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
25 April 2012
  • Summary: Birds of Steel is a prime example of a great niche game. If it’s up your alley it’s really up your alley, but if it isn’t, it isn’t.

True achievements
17 April 2012
  • Conclusion: I felt overwhelmed intially with the game telling me i had to be at 30% throttle before landing and turning on the air brake by using the right stick and left on the D - pad but if your willing to focus in and learn what the game is teaching you, then you will have a satisfying experience when flying through the airs 22/30 = 73% ** i would love to have some feedback from anyone about my reviews and how i can improve and aspects i can do without Cheers

Birds of Steel Review (Xbox 360)

Gamers Daily News
16 April 2012
  • Summary: Seriously, I should have had this review done a week ago but I was having so much fun trying repeatedly to down those incoming bombers I couldn’t tear away to write this. It’s a very well done game all around and a lot of attention to detail made it not only interesting and fun to play but also informational as well.

The Gran Turismo Of World War II Flight Sims

Game Informer
11 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Deliver realistic World War II flight combat with as much historical accuracy as possible Graphics: You won’t see minor details like bullets splashing across the water, but when the sun is creating a beautiful glowing orange outline of your plane it’s easy to forget those missing details Sound: Epic orchestrations, well-delivered narration, whizzing bullets, and loud explosions make it worth turning on the 5.1 Playability: You can easily switch between...

Birds of Steel Review – Biggles flies undone

LazyGamer
14 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Aerial dogfights and midair bombing runs isn’t exactly a genre that is thriving right now on consoles, thanks to titles that consist of fancy terrorist-shooting, while slick and polished racing games whizz by.

Birds Of Steel Review (360)

Yet Another Review Site
21 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Takes flight in historical style Put me in front of a flight sim, you’ll usually get possibly the most macabre black comedy of the century. I have about the same level of co-ordination as a gnat in a tumble dryer, consistently forcing locals to scrape my remains of their rooftops ten times over.
  • Pros: Tons to unlock, Loads of missions to undertake thanks to dynamic campaigns and mission editors, Tight and responsive controls for flying, Stephen Fry educates you through events
  • Cons: In game voiceovers are rather annoying, Missions can get rather dull with poor pacing, Short campaign

Birds of Steel Review

XboxGaming
13 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Gaijin Entertainment presumably focused so heavily on creating an authentic flight engine because they know that that is what the specific audience values most. The problem is that, for those who might be considering getting into this most unforgiving of genres, Birds of Steel is neither pretty enough or accessible enough to attract many new fans.
  • Pros: Brutally authentic flight and combat systems, Stunning array of WW2-era aircraft to collect and master, Engrossing mission-based co-op and multiplayer dogfights
  • Cons: Unpolished presentation, Disappointing graphics, particularly terrain and built-up areas, Hardly a fun playground to entice newcomers to the genre

Birds Of Steel

  • Conclusion: When it comes to your typical selection of new releases, World War 2 flight simulators aren’t particularly common on shop shelves, especially for console owners. Although it would be wrong to tar everyone with the same brush, most fans of this niche market are commonly found on the perimeter of your local RAF/USAF airbase with a pair of binoculars and a cucumber sandwich.

Test de Birds of Steel

Game-Focus
2 March 2014
  • Summary: Birds of Steel s’adresse principalement aux passionnés d’aviations, mais aussi d’histoire. Les différentes missions ainsi que la campagne vous offriront de longues heures dans les airs. Il faut reconnaitre cependant que la maniabilité pourrait en rebuter plus d’un, mais n’est pas non plus insurmontable. Malgré le contexte guerrier, c’est un jeu tout à fait charmant dont il faudra prendre les commandes. Assurément, c’est le meilleur jeu de simulation de vol sur consoles.
  • Pros: Une riche durée de vie Beau mix entre jeu vidéo et histoire
  • Cons: Maniabilité pas évidente Quelques missions soporifiques
