Product Description

Amazon.com

The first light of Christmas day shimmers on the wings of your P-51 Mustang. Then you see shadows moving across the snow. "Jerries! Twelve o'clock level!" crackles across the radio. A box of Heinkels, escorted by some 109s, coming straight at you. Drop your tanks, jam the throttle, and haul back on the stick. Zigzag over a German fighter and blast him with a spray of machine gun fire. The Messerschmidt's tail section breaks off from the stress of the dive. You lose sight of it in the cloud cover until you see the flames. Another bandit down.

WWII Fighters features an intense combat environment. Realistic flight models, detailed damage models, flaming debris, swarms of aircraft, desperate radio chatter, and more put you right in the action. Play a full campaign on either the Axis or Allied side with up to eight pilots in multiplayer mode for both cooperative and competitive missions. There are 40 single missions with a full mission editor and quick mission creator. Custom tune the game options to increase or decrease difficulty.

High polygon counts, real-time lighting, and detailed design put you in the pilot's cockpit and in control, with every plane's 3-D virtual cockpit fitted with working dials and indicators to make you feel what it was like to fly the real thing. The mission creator lets you choose and place the plane squadrons, ground forces, and even the buildings and industrial targets you must destroy or defend to win. WWII Fighters also has a special trigger feature that allows you to set up events that occur only when a specific action has taken place. Set up a whole chain of actions and triggers to play each created mission unpredictably time and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars On W W II FIGHTERS September 28, 2001
By A Customer
Among the very best fighter simulations - equalled, perhaps, but not surpassed for quality of graphics, flight dynamics, and
over-all realism. However, not for the beginner: the "easy" flight mode in this game is more difficult than the "difficult" mode of less-demanding flight simulations. This edition includes the essential keyboard reference card but does not include the original manual so important to novices (the manual can still be bought separately by applying to the publisher directly).

4.0 out of 5 stars WW2 Fighters: First Impressions February 22, 2002
This review is based on approximately 10 hours with the simulation. System: Dell 8100 P3 1.2 GHz, 384Mb SDRAM with ATI Radeon 7500 64Mb 3-D Card. OS: MS Windows XP.
Installation was a snap and I chose a full install which usually avoids 'stuttering' in a graphics related sim like this one. Install took approximately 3 minutes. Documentation in the CD jewel case focuses only on installation and tech support and the large manual is available on the .pdf file included on the CD which is to be expected for the price of $(...).
I recommend that after you install you bring up the Manual and at least print out the Key Commands section in the 'Players Guide' prior to flying.
Joystick selection is narrow and no instructions are included for mapping key commands to stick but the file ww2keys.txt in the main folder allows you to map the various commands to your stick.
My stick (Thrustmaster Afterburner) has the tension set on max and yet I found rudder, elevator and aileron roll way to sensitive. The .StickSensitivity and .StickDeadZone fields in the ww2.ini file located in the main folder is easy to modify by simply adjusting the numbers until the 'feel' is right. If you have a MS stick you will be able to map thru the sticks software with no problems.
Graphically, this sim stands head and shoulders over the competition: damage modeling, tracers, weather effects, clouds (the best I've seen so far!), sun glare, aircraft presentation, etc., are ouststanding and come very, very close to IL2 in terms of detail.
Flight Modeling (FM) is above average but hard core simmers will easily be able to push the envelope and recovery is too easy.
Frankly, although FM is always hotly debated by the hard core, I feel that it is academic as we are 'flying' on a PC!

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the WWII flight sim you've been looking for January 20, 2002
Wondering what WWII flight sim to get for your P2? Haven't gotten the horsepower to Run "Stormavik"? Give "Jane's WWII Fighters" a try. In WW2F, you can fly for Allied air forces or the ominous Luftwaffe during the latter days of the war - specifically the frozen forests of central Europe during the "Battle of the Bulge". Flyable aircraft include the usual suspects - Mustangs and Thunderbolts against Me-109's and Focke-Wolfes. The mission structure isn't entirely dynamic - with missions designed along a flowing outline that doesn't allow you to exactly change the course of history, but will spare you the indignity of flying the same mission twice. Unlike its Microsoft competition, JWW2F won't let you add on aircraft form anywhere, so you've got to make the most of what the program has. But that's nothing to laugh at - the planes are realized pretty well for a survey sim, with the -47's and Mustangs exteriors realized down to the last rivet, and the flight panels containing a working suite of instruments. The flight model also seems much more convincing than the cartoonish flight models of the earlier Jane's Fighters series, and the visual model shows some painful looking damage for those who get caught. I think it was a marketing goof to use a name which hints at a relationship between this game and say USNF '97. The terrain is much better at low altitudes than MS-CFS, and the scenery and aircraft are almost enough to convince me I was freezing up in an airplane during the winter of 1944-45. If you haven't bought a WWII game since Microprose's "1942: Pacific Air War" or haven't the horsepower to run "Stormavik" or the forthcoming "Jane's Attack Squadron", this may be the WWII flight sim for you. I ran this game on my P4 with no WinXP compatibility problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST WWII Flight Sim ever! December 28, 2001
This WWII flight sim is by far the best out there! The graphics are very realistic. The planes are very accurate and flying the P-51s against the German ME's (rocket powered planes) is about as good as it gets. Hard to learn without a manual, but you should rely on the pdf's foudn within the installed software. PRINT THEM OUT! Great, great flight sim. It's consuming up a lot of my time these days!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great sim March 24, 2001
By A Customer
This is a great game for any flight or combat sim fan. the sound and graphics are very realistic! Also the way you control your plane is realistic too. You get to chose whether you're on the allied or axis forces and in one mode you can pick your aircraft. This is a great game and I recommend it!

I thought it would just be a nice conversation piece, but it plays very well indeed. It does require the best joystick that money can buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a chance
Go buy "European Air War" by Microprose. If you value substance over style, the superficial and boring "WW2 Fighters" will NOT keep you interested.
