Dogfight 1942

DarkStation

  • Conclusion: The base gameplay is solid, with smooth controls and the odd exciting mission. However the amount of content isn’t large enough to keep you going for more than a couple of hours, though replaying certain missions with another player may extend that time.

Dogfight 1942

  • Excerpt: Any aviation enthusiast will tell you: World War II was stuffed with crazy aerial encounters. Dogfight 1942 lets you join the fray in a handful of storied locales, from the trouble skies of London to the salty open air around Iwo Jima. Mission objectives vary over the course of Dogfight ’s three-hour campaign: you’ll intercept German bombers above the white cliffs of Dover, launch torpedoes at Japanese carriers at Midway, and shoot down German V-1 rockets before they...
  • Pros: + Appealing selection of WWII aircraft; varied objectives; split-screen multiplayer.
  • Cons: ? How does shooting your co-op partner full of holes heal her?

  • Conclusion: It may seem harsh to judge a relatively inexpensive downloadable title on quantity of content, but it was City Interactive themselves who made the comparison with boxed games, and on that front the game falls sorely short. Dogfight 1942 is a decent arcade flyer that’s ultimately kept grounded by an insubstantial campaign and a lack of anything interesting in the multiplayer department, and while it may pass an afternoon, don’t expect much in the way of longevity.

  • Conclusion: There’s certainly a lot to like, or at least appreciate, in this would-be full retail release that’s been ushered onto the more affordable Live Arcade. Initially it certainly seems to be going in the right directions, but it’s not long before lacklustre combat makes itself known, nonsensical mission parameters inspire frustration and games like SkyDrift prove themselves to provide more enjoyable dogfighting action.

Dogfight 1942 Review | Up Tiddly Up Up

13 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Dogfight 1942 provides a healthy dollop of arcade flight action for an attractive price. Though perhaps not as polished as it could have been, City Interactive have arguably delivered their finest game to date, and one that absolutely gives aviation fans the thrills they've been sorely craving.
  • Pros: Solid and hectic arcade action, Bucketloads of missions and planes, Enjoyable local co-op
  • Cons: Predictable AI can make furballs repetitive, Inconsistent voice acting, pilots far too talkative, Doesn't quite nail the balance between authenticity and full-on fun

Dogfight 1942 review

Gamestyle

  • Summary: There are a fair number of combat flight simulations on the consoles. From the ultra realistic Il Sturmavik to the more arcade based Ace Combat. Yet on XBLA the choice is very limited, with the stand out title being Snoopy Flying Ace, the excellent Crimson Skies clone. Dogfight 1942 hopes to fill that gap with its mix of combat arcade action.

  • Conclusion: Abschließend kann ich nur sagen, dass euch das Spiel be-stimmt Spaß machen wird, wenn ihr schon ein paar Flugsimulatoren ausprobiert habt. All jene, die noch nie ein solches Spiel gespielt haben, werden auch sehr viel Freude damit haben, selbst wenn die Freude nach knapp drei Stunden zu Ende ist. Alles in allem ein nettes Spiel für Zwischendurch.

(Review) Dogfight 1942: um voo rápido pela Segunda Guerra Mundial

Xbox Plus
9 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Dogfight 1942 é um título de combate aéreo voltado a quem gosta de algo rápido e descompromissado. Entretanto, sua superficialidade e sua curta campanha não justificam seu preço (e perceba que este não é um jogo caro). O jogo poderia contar com missões mais variadas e longas, além de um nível de dificuldade maior, pois aí ele se tornaria mais atrativo. A City Interactive simplificou demais as coisas: a simplificação deveria ter ficado apenas nos controles.

Simple Ballerei in luftigen Höhen zum günstigen Preis

DemoNews.de
9 September 2012
  • Summary: City Interactive kann für den Preis von rund 15 Euro einen guten Ableger im Segment der luftigen Ballerspielchen abliefern. Einzig nervig sind die teils langen Ladezeiten. Das führt aber nur zu Abzügen in der B-Note und hat mit der eigentlichen Spielmechanik ja nichts zu tun. Klar, die Programmierstube erfindet das Rad sicherlich nicht neu und liefert ein eher kurzweiliges Spiel ab.
  • Pros: Leichter Einstieg, Saubere Technik, Offline-Mehrspielermodus, Abwechslungsreiche Missionen
  • Cons: Lange Ladezeiten, Kein Online-Modus, Sehr begrenzte Tiefe, Kurzweilige Kampagne

  • Conclusion: Ich war und ich bin überrascht: Für 1200 MS-Punkte gibt es Flugaction satt auf gutem Arcade-Niveau. Die angesprochenen Ladezeiten trüben den Spaß etwas, aber verloren geht er dadurch nicht. Die paar Euro sind gut investiert, weil neben der kurzen, aber motivierenden Kampagne auch noch an das CoOp-Spiel gedacht wurde. So gibt es für werdende Flugasse hier eine milde Einstiegsvariante in den Luftkampf – inklusive Suchtfaktor.
