Summary: This game is very difficult to fly. Even in simulated mode the plane constantly stalls out. You have to stay full throttle the whole time. All the flight controls are difficult to remember, even for a seasoned pilot like myself. The graphics are good and that's about it.
Summary: This game is alright, the graphics are not that good for a 360 game and interacting with the game is quite complicated. Also it states in the description that the game has a novice or easy flight setting which is not true. You will still need to be able to understand how to operate it using the pitch and yaw. The only difference is that on the easy setting you are not tasked with controlling every aspect of the plane and receive unlimited ammo and fuel.

Summary: Birds of Steel is a plane flying game set in the Pacific arena of World War II. They have modeled a vast number of planes and offer a quite challenging realistic mode. We adore flight games and have played most that have come out. We were really looking forward to this one. Those used to arcade style flight games where you can bounce along the runway might need some patience here. You do get a set of instructional missions.
Summary: If ya enjoy arcade-type flight games, you will NOT care for this. VERY difficult to accrue points/rank to purchase new planes...and you can LOSE points quicker, in some cases, very spooky. THIS IS THE FIRST GAME I'D BE WILLING TO PAY $ FOR AN "OPEN-ALL-PLANES" CHEAT CODE!
Summary: Single player camagin is excellent fun, but a little bit short imo, but definitely the best thing about this game. Lots of action and fun to be had after the training missions. Multiplayer matches are only online (so no split screen dog fights with your mates unfortunately) and could have been great. The ideas are all there, if only each match was longer.
