I don't know WHY this game only rates three stars. No, it's not a straight-on flight sim. No, the graphics aren't the best on XBox. Graphics should take a backseat to gameplay at any rate, and SWON has fantastic gameplay. Easily the best arcade flyer LucasArts has come up with, outstripping the Rogue Squadron series. The vast collection of planes you earn should send any WWII historian and aviation buff into ecstasy (no Corsair, though, sigh).
The plane models are extremely detailed, no problems there. The landscape is a bit bland at times, but specific locations (i.e., the Cliffs of Dover) are instantly recognizable. Other details (explosions, ground vehicles) are simple, but you'll be too busy (and moving too fast) to notice.
The gameplay, as before, is great. Again, it's not a flight sim, so don't judge it as such. Although it is a bit embarrassing to plow into the ground when you're trying to whip around to take out an enemy fighter (whoops). The game's most interesting feature is the time control. You can slow or speed up the flow of time to gain the advantage in a dogfight or to cut down on travel time between target areas. The targeting system helps you lead shots properly, though that can be turned off to see if you're as good as the guys that did this for a living.
The sound and dialogue are all way above par. Every plane has a distinct engine sound, which was actually recorded at an air museum in California. The voice acting is lively but not melodramatic, and helps immerse you in the game. Where the sound really shines, though, is the phenomenal music. I rarely buy game soundtracks, but when I saw SWON's was available, I snatched it up.
The game feels a bit short, though 36 stages is still impressive, and there are several two-player scenarios.

Ok, look, so the game isn't 100% realistic in every aspect. But how many of us are pilots? There are all the major indicators, airspeed, altitude, horizon, etc. etc. just the amount of gauges you need to fly without really knowing how to fly for real.
In any case, this game is fun. It has hard but doable missions that both pose a challenge, and offer a good sense of accomplishment when you finish them.
This game is fun. I liked Crimson Skies a lot, and this is very similar in its mechanics. The historical tie in makes it that much better though. Check this game out, it's worth it.

If you love crimson skies you will love this game.Your name is Chase and your fighting Germany Nemisis and Japan fighters during world war 2.In this game you are fighting against the enemys with your allies Russia,France and Britain.If you like a hard video game this is one.Your not only fighting against planes but also gun turrents,tanks,patrol boats,u2 boats,destroyers and others.On a few missions you get to shoot the planes from the ground in a destroyer or turrent but these are few and far between it's mostly fighting from the air.In between different levels you also have challenges.You unfortuanly must play all challenges,all primary,secondary and bonus missions to get the xwing and tie fighter from star wars.It's not always so easy to get to the bonus missions but you can always go into history and play it later and if you beat it you still get the prize and requisitions to upgrade your planes.There are different planes in this game.My favorite is the JU 262 Jet which you will get to fly in level 12 it is incredibly fast.With requistions you can upgrade your planes armor,enjine,amount of ammo etc.Your armor can be upgraded to 4 the same for the other upgrades.As you go thru the game you get different secondary weapons and on some you can choose which one you use on several missions.You get Missiles which can easily take out ground and air targets from a distance,different types of bombs,torpedoes for navel enemies,cannons and other secondary weapons my favorite is the medium missiles.Also you can choose between 1st person view and 3rd from the menu.1st is much harder because you can't see your plane.Read more ›

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Shon E Holyfield on December 28, 2003
I read the posted reviews carefully and I am glad I did. I rented the movie first and quickly went out to purchase the game.
Let me start by saying the game has spectacular graphics, sound and plays like Mechassault. I agree with many other reviewers - this is NOT a flight simulator. As such, comparing this game to a flight simulator and "criticizing" it for not being a flight simulator is a bit silly. For all those that were expecting Mechassault to play and look like Mechwarrior and have still not gotten over their disappointment - this game will probably just frustrate you - stay away.
Provided below is a list of pros and an objective description of areas of the game that some may consider disappointing and/or annoying.
Pros: Graphics. Sound. Game Play. Dogfights. Missions.
(1) The graphics are NOT CRIMSON SKIES - or Mechassault for that matter. They are not crisp and shiny or cartoon looking. With this said, the game has excellent detail and has a look and feel to it similar to what one might expect in a color WWII documentary - no fancy explosions, or "Hollywood" special effects - just a WWII dogfight. Realistic - really realistic. Nevertheless, the detail in the game is significantly more spectacular than anything I've played - not like a cartoon (e.g. Mechassault/Crimson Skies)- but spectacular nonetheless. If you enjoy WWII history and especially reading about or watching documentaries about WWII aerial combat, the look of this game will definately impress you. It sounds strange, but the game "feels" like WWII.
(2) The sounds are out of this world.
