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 (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

  • 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

“De beste vlieg sim op de console”

evilgamerz.nl
6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: De game industrie heeft het ook wat moeilijker door de economische staat van de wereld. Het eerste waar dan meestal in gesneden wordt, zijn de games voor een niche doelgroep. We hebben daarom de laatste tijd weinig tot geen van dergelijke games voorbij zien komen. Birds of Steel kwam dan ook als een verrassing. De spirituele opvolger van il-2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey laat zien hoe een vlieg simulator succesvol werkt op de console.
  • Pros: Meer dan 100 vliegtuigen, Toegankelijk voor beginnelingen, Missie editor
  • Cons: Grafisch niet altijd even mooi, Je zult er veel tijd in moeten steken, Missies zijn erg kort

  • Conclusion: So seltsam es klingen mag, aber Birds of Steel hat uns an Gran Turismo (und Forza) erinnert: Die unglaubliche Liebe zum Detail bei der Präsentation der verschiedenen Flugzeuge ist absolut großartig und mehrfach haben wir uns dabei erwischt, mit der freien Kamera einfach nur unsere geliebte Spitfire im Licht der untergehenden Sonne zu bewundern.
