Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Fans of flying games and WWII buffs should already have Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII pre-ordered, and if y’all don’t, then pick this title up, post haste. Graphic ho’s will also marvel at how Ubisoft Romania managed to make each frame of action look like a professional oil painting depicting the harsh but strangely beautiful skies of WWII.

Samurai Warriors 2 Empires Review

IGN Entertainment
26 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Visually you’re in for pretty much the same stuff that has been scattered across the screen dating back to the heyday of the big black box. There’s a lot of good here; batch enemy animations are believable and character skins depict costumes that are as ornate as one would expect for this time period. I’m also a fond of the 3D battle map and the time put into the cards and other off-battlefield elementals.

True achievements
20 December 2006
  • Conclusion: If you are accepting that this is a WWII game, and that it's a little outdated with NO online community, then it is not a bad idea to try it out, and grab some achievements along the way. Score: 7/10 (For TA sake, 3/5) *When this game first came out, it probably wouldve been ranked higher. Try it if you have money and you like this genre along with some gamerscore.

  • Excerpt: Blazing Angels puts you in the role of an American pilot who joins the British RAF early in World War II, and quite the pilot you are as you manage to find yourself taking part in just about every major battle of the war both in Europe and the Pacific. You’ll cover the English army’s retreat from Dunkirk, defend London during the Blitz, and protect the Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, and your journeys will take you to the skies above Paris, North Africa, and assorted...

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII Review

  • Excerpt: The arcade-style WWII aerial combat game isn't exactly one of the most common, but you can pretty much guarantee that a few of them will arrive each year. Ubisoft has released Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII for the Xbox 360, Xbox and PC, and it ticks most of the boxes when it comes to dogfighting: large scale aerial battles, squad control, missions based on actual events, online play and more. Sounds good, but is it actually any fun to play?

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII is like that dinner guest you’re looking forward to seeing who manages to say something awkward five minutes into the visit and never really recovers. The concept alone is what really grabbed me as I tend to love anything WWII based, especially when they involve planes. However, I’ve had to rely mostly on PC games to get my fix -- making Blazing Angels such an exciting and promising prospect.

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII Review

Xbox Evolved
1 December 2006
  • Summary: Blazing Angels doesn't add anything new to the shooter genre. It has good controls, but, it's bland to the very end. I couldn't get hyped when shooting Nazis, which really is the best thing about a WW2 game.
  • Pros: Only game on Xbox Live that allows for some dogfighting.
  • Cons: Split-Screen action isn't as appreciated as Xbox Live.
