Summary: some of the ubisoft flight sims are wonderful , like il 2 or il2 sturmovic .. this was a bit of a dissapointment , for one , i have a fairly new dell dimension 3000. , to play this game i had to spend another 80 upgrading my video card wich was fine .. then my saitek joy stick would not work as it was not supported , so i spent another 50 on the reccommend logitec.. the older flight sims are great simply as you plug in a joystick and can fly .. not so with this game ..
Summary: Blazing Angels starts off with a fairly easy training excersize but the developers dump you into a massive fighting scenereo for the very first mission with targets everywhere and only a small window of time to find and destroy all the targets. I fealt that this was a rediculous requirement for someone on their very first mission.
Summary: Comparing to ace combat 4 on the PS2, this game absolutely sucks! I loved all the Ace combat series games in campaign mode. Blazing Angels has the controls all screwed up on the PS 3. Obviously the person who wrote the controller program never flew a plane or has any idea how a plane fly’s. I mean: Why in the hell would you put the throttle on the right joy stick and combine it with the ailerons? In Campaign mode the first person view does not even work.
Conclusion: This has to be the worst game out for the 360 at the moment...!!! Glitchy graphics, awkward controls, hum-drum game play and hard to get achievements (stupidly so!). Get this game if you like to break three controllers a day..!!!
Summary: The other reviews have discussed each major shortcoming of the game is detail, so I will not repeat them. Rent the game for a fun hour or so of arcade style playing, but do not waste your money buying the game.
Conclusion: The really annoying thing about this game is the "Training" mission. You can't do anything until you complete this section, but the "training" you receive is often a little vague. Particularly on the final objective. "Use the targetting camera" - fine, if you have some clue as to how it works! Granted, as a rental game comes without manual, so purchasers of the game may get more insight, but after 20+ attempts at "bombing" the church, I hit it once!
Summary: I can't believe Ubisoft released this game. In 2006, it's pathetic that this PC game would be released without joystick support. Ever try to fly a plane using a mouse and W-S-A-D? It's not a pretty picture. As far as I'm concerned, the game is unusable and should never have been released. And try to send an email to Ubisoft to tell them what you think. There's no email address to be found anywhere on their website. Nice touch.
