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.

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII

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  • Conclusion: If you are accepting that this is a WWII game, and that it's a little outdated with NO online community, then it is not a bad idea to try it out, and grab some achievements along the way.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.

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.

  • Excerpt: Ever since Namco unleashed Ace Combat on an unsuspecting Playstation-crazed world, the console flight simulation genre has been packed to the rafters with historical, modern and futuristic takes on the Wright Brothers’ greatest invention. Not to leave out the newest format, Ubisoft have released Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII for the Xbox 360, complete with an Xbox Live powered multiplayer online dogfighting mode. Chocks away!

  • Excerpt: The whole "poser" thing has always evaded me. For those of you who are unfamiliar with such a thing, a poser is someone who pretends to be something they're not for superficial social gain. How does this relate to Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII? Here's why: it tries to be a high-thrills flight game that puts you into the most intense dogfights of World War II, but it's actually just a ho-hum game that offers very little to a genre that already has classics like Star...

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The biggest problem with Blazing Angels: Squadrons of World War II is that the game is unremarkable. The gameplay doesn't do justice to the sometimes-excellent visuals and there are missions that cross the line from bland into annoying. Ubisoft is steadily building a reputation for being a top-class publisher. Unfortunately games like this only remind us of the days before, when mediocrity was the order of the day.

  • Excerpt: With a name like Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII, this Xbox 360 sure sounds like a combat flight simulation set in the 40's, but controls are so wonky that it plays more like a flying bathtub simulation with a really loose yoke.
