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...

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.

Frustrating Gameplay but the Graphics and Historical Clips are Nice

SiegeOfFour, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm a pilot and my wife knows how passionate I am about flying - be it games, simulators or real planes. She got this for me as a Christmas gift and so I really, really wanted to like it. It does have some redeeming merits, namely the graphics and the historical WW-II clips with acompannying narrative that set up (only) some of the missions.

Boring and poorly designed

Polemarch, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: Who designed this? Seriously? Who? Because you obviously had no GodDAMN clue as to what you were doing. This isn't a game it's legal theft. I want my damn money back.

Birds of Steel disaster

Peter JONES, amazon.co.uk
2 May 2012
  • Summary: Follow on to Birds of Prey, developer appears to have moved to another publisher. Birds of Prey was okay up to a point, this title nose dives very badly. Shorter solo campaign than in Birds of Prey. Much more arcade shooter design, like as a Japanese shoot down 2 US fighters in 4 minutes, which proves impossible except on simplest level and then with a good dose of sheer luck.
