Showing 1-10 of 23
give the player the option to control the aircraft with right thumb contol.
6 November 2011
Summary: This is a difficult game to play. The controls are difficult to master if you are right handed (fighter pilots fly the planes with the right hand on the flight control stick but this game is with the left hand) It would be nice if the game allowed to swap to the right thumb joy on the PS3 controler.
Summary: Campaign is slightly challenging, but boring and repetitive. flying controls are complex but add some depth to the game. Online multiplayer is non-existant, no longer works. Offline multiplayer is fun, but only 2 players can play at once.
Summary: I have nothing good to say about this game really the graphics aren't even all that good, shootign and flying the plane aren't realistic at all all in all this game is real hard to play also GARBAGE wouldn't buy it at all
Summary: Positives: Ubisoft is known for their outstanding graphics. --And this is why I bought it. Negatives: Oh, let me count the ways. Controls are terrible. Camera angle(s) and instruments are a disaster. Annoying radio chatter that actually confuses by leading one to believe the objective of a mission is actually something else. JUST READ EVERYBODY ELSE's review. In short, I am extremely disappointed with it.
Summary: First, let me tell you that I am an aerospace engineer and actually work on REAL aircraft simulators. Therefore, I am very skeptical of games that claim to be an aircraft simulation. Blazing Angels is somewhat entertaining and provides some information to WWII from an American pilot's standpoint. Some historical facts, but definitely not a history tutorial. The sixaxis motion control is very refreshing to the typical console game-based flight "simulation" game.
Summary: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A FLYING GAME LIKE UBI SOFT'S IL 2, LEAVE THIS ONE ON THE RACK. GREAT FOR KIDS, BUT HAS NO LIFE LIKE FLYING VIEWS OR CHALLENGES. I WAS EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED BY THIS VERSION. WHY WASTE A X-BOX 360 FORMAT TO PLAY THIS SIMPLE ARCADE PONG-LIKE FLIGHT SIM. SAVE YOUR MONEY.
Summary: This best thing I can say about this game is that the graphics look good. You really get the feeling of flying as you cruise along in the simulated WW2 fighter planes depicted in the game. The realism ends there. Shooting down enemy planes, which is supposedly next to impossible in real combat, is amazingly easy in this game. The enemy planes are easy to find in the sky and a few well placed bursts send them crashing to the ground.
Summary: I've had this game for about a month now. The graphics and game play are pretty decent, but quick manuevers will cause incredibly bad screen tear. The control methods are unusual and require a longer than average learning curve. It will take a couple of missions to get used to flying the planes effectively.
