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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
