Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I pre-ordered this game in late 2010-early 2011 when it was first announced. After several push-backs in release date, the Wii version was eventually scrapped, apparently. Amazon cancelled my pre-order since it had been well over a year with no action from the company and anecdotal news reports seem to indicate they dumped the game entirely.

I continue to watch this, hoping one day it will be released, but now, almost three years later, it continues to be "currently unavailable."

What baffles me is that the sales ranking, today, 11/1/13, shows it at #109,000ish.

How can this be, if it has never been released or sold?

3.0 out of 5 stars How do you review this? November 5, 2013
How do you write a review for product, in this case a video game for Wii, that was never released!? I shouldn't be giving this game any stars because I never had a chance to play it, neither can anyone else. I think that City Interactive made a mistake by no producing this game in at least limited numbers. City Interactive never replied to my many e- mail inquiries about Combat Wings over the years.
