  • Summary: WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! AFTER HOPING THAT SOME ENTHUSIAST FOR FLIGHT WOULD BRING OLD WAR BIRDS TO LIFE,WELL FOLKS THIS IS JUST ANOTHER POORLY DONE FLIGHT SIMULATOR.NONE OF THE PLANES FLY VERY WELL,THE BATTLES WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE,OR SINGLE PLAYER MODE, PROVES TO ME WHY WE SHOULDN'T TRUST THEM.ENEMY PLANES WOULD RAM YOU RATHER THAN TAKE A HIT,SOME FLEW UNDER MOUNTAINS,& THE SEA TO ESCAPE MY GUNS.THE F-2,& F-4,COULD PERFORM BETTER THAN THE F-6 WHICH WAS BUILT TO...

Simple, relatively realtistic and enjoyable.

  • Summary: Good game. Simple, relatively realistic and enjoyable. Only flaws are the typical game "lock-out" structure of denying certain aircraft until a certain level of points and the fact that every enemy airplane and anti-aircraft gun aims at you (typical of games but not of real world operations where opposing fighter pilots and anti-aircraft gunners have a very difficult job seeing and selecting targets). "Big sky - little airplane" as we say in the business.

Birds of Steel appears to be a winner

P. Ramsay, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this game for my grandson. He really enjoys the airplane shooting games involving the slower moving propeller driven aircraft as opposed to the faster jet aircraft games, and such games help him with his hand eye coordination. Birds of Steel seemed to be highly recommended for its more up to date graphics and realism, factors I thought would help hold his interest.

Not all it's cracked up to be...

razorink, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: After reading many positive reviews stating this was THE best WW2 flight/combat simulator out there for any console, I gleefully paid almost 50$ for this rare game. It falls woefully short of offering anything more than historically accurate models of aircraft. The AI is terrible, the graphics are crap, the planes handle like a Studebaker with bad shocks, & the campaign/story mode is so basic and boring I don't care to follow it anymore.

Best WWII Game EVER!!

Kevin G. Kamphaus, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I have been playing WWII flight sims/games almost 20 years and this is DEFINETLY the best game yet! I don't even play online yet and am enjoying hours of replay value. The number of planes available to fly (as you unlock/purchase them) is incredible!! I especially enjoy the Dynamic Campaigns as you can play virtually an infinite number of possibilities. Can't wait to get an online account and get the DLC, one of my all time favorite fighters (P-47) is included.

Great fun!

  • Summary: My 11 year old son loves this game. He played it for weeks with just the standard controller and then added a joystick and found it even more fun. I'm strict about the Teen games, but this one is very innocent.

Great game.

Charles Martin, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: Awesome game. For those of you who appreciate realism like I do, you must get it. I wish more video games put this much effort into continuity. Service was fast too. When I'm ready to purchase another game, I will get it through the same people.

Pretty to look at but not much else

Steven Contella, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Like Birds of Prey before the control scheme is completely hopeless. Throttle on the right stick and flight controls on the left stick. I understand the need to operate the A,X,Y,B buttons with your right thumb, but like most people I'm right handed so I would rather at least be able to swap the sticks for controls. Next the AI is terrible. When they are friendly AI they fly all over the place shooting at nothing or crash into each other.

Awesome game

T.S "Shopper Mom", Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Perfect. My son was looking for a flight game that had a lot of realism and plane options. This does that in spades. The controls and views are super awesome.. he's thrilled so, so am I.
