3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre - Par Excellence December 30, 2004
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
World War 1 is back and shunning the actual historical impact of the bi-planes of old, it is your duty as Benjamin, (you're always Benjamin regardless of your pilot name) British Ace supreme, to rid the world of the evil Triple Alliance. WoW (false moniker mind you) takes the misery of trench warfare to the skies where you shoot down generic plane after generic plane after generic plane in a series of unconnected missions spread throughout thirteen unconnected levels which each greatly resemble each other.

The game boasts a number of planes for both the Germans and the British, each with listed Speed, Maneuverability, Firepower, and Endurance levels. Unfortunately, the planes are so similar that these numbers are largely meaningless. Instead, the only thing to look at is whether the plane you're flying falls within the fighter, scout, or bomber classifications. Those really translate to fast, slower, and slower still when it comes to comparisons. As you play through campaign levels, which are all British, you can unlock these planes, but due to their great similarity, there is no real sense of accomplishment even after finishing the entire game and unlocking the supposedly uber fighters.

Within each campaign mission you have no control over which plane you get to fly. You're given one in the beginning, and unless you decide to take on one of the many bonus missions strewn throughout the level, odds are it will be the only plane you get to fly. Unless, of course, you go through one of the many rail-shooter sub-missions where you get put in back seat of the mysteriously appearing bomber and you have to keep German fighters off your tail while dropping bombs on enemy installations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wings of War Review by Ed Rhodes July 22, 2005
I found this WW I flying game very fun to play. The graphics are outstanding and I would strongly suggest your computer meet the minimums for graphics, memory and processor speed. Just going through "flying school" presented a real challenge. Much detail was programmed into this flight game and it presents a very realistic presentation. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys well detailed and challenging air war games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wondrous! November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is TRULY grand!
I've been waiting for 5 years, for Microsoft to get their butts in gear & stroke this original xbox game for the XBOX360...and I was just about to buy a used console to be able to play it. BUT, I took this chance on this PC version. Got a fright when, after installing this on my Windows 7 rig, I did get an error message telling me that it wouldn't be compatible...BUT that it would tweak itself a tad. Viola!, it instantly began-to-work...even recognizing the joy-stick and calibrating it!
The game is hugely entertaining and vivid, in an arcade way...although you CAN adjust the experience to a more realistic handling environment. I'll have to "grow a few", first, before I do so. And THAT will not be easy as I am a gal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Arcade style flying game - linear February 18, 2013
This review is for the single player option only. A joystick was used. I can't imagine playing it with keyboard and mouse.

You can play a quick action game where you can set various options: location, time of day, weather, number of combatants, etc. You get to pick your plane (several different color schemes available). The model of your plane is limited at first since most are "locked". You have to progress through the campaign game to unlock more models.

The campaign game is a set of about a dozen missions. Each one has about a dozen objectives. You must complete them in a set order so the game can be called linear even though you are flying around in the sky. Some of the objectives are timed, fail and you have to start over. The save system was horrible. It basically saves the game after each completed objective IF you continue playing. Exit the game and return later - you have to start over at the start of the mission. Confused? Say you quit after completing objective 6 of mission 4. When you restart the game you start at objective 1 of mission 4. When you play make sure you have enough time to get through the whole mission.

You have an option to choose between "arcade" and "classic" but there was not much difference between the two. Classic is harder as the plane does not handle so precisely. Turns are wider, etc. Both are basically arcade though. You have unlimited fuel and machine gun ammo. You carry up to 50 bombs AND 50 rockets!
(I don't remember reading about air-to-air and air-to-ground rockets in WWI) You also apparently have radios as you receive updated instructions as you proceed through the missions.
