Wings is a fun game - even on the smaller platform and especially for those who never experienced it in its former glory. However,for me, someone who LOVED this game on the Amiga, this version just comes up lacking.
The original on the Amiga is very well carried over to the GBA. A number of improvements also - much better bombing and strafing missions which are harder and more controlable. The majority of the missions will be flying (the best type) and you can toggle views (thankfully) so you are not constricted by the default behind cockpit view. You can chose an allied or German campaign to play which is also a nice new feature.
Yes there could have been weather and lighting changes (but to be honest, it would make viewing the screen harder than it already is for this game)
A really good smooth flowing game keeping you interested in the ever developing (true) storyline.
Get hold of a copy of this great dogfighting/WW1 simulator.
The gameplay itself is very fun and addictive, with good graphics and easy to learn controls. Also, it's educational- I think I've learned more about WWI playing this game than I did in school! In any case, it's a pretty cool game. Apparently it's an adaption of an old computer game. Now what we really need is an Game Boy version of Sword of the Samurai or Pirates Gold!
It will be interesting to see how the game has changed eg the multiplayer dogfights, different weather conditions , much better graphics etc. Unfortunatley looks like I'll as ever have to play it directly under my reading light in my reading chair. However saying that i;m delighted to see someone has had the sense to remake this classic game, it will definetly be on my shopping list when it comes out - I just have to persuade someone to buy another copy so I can check out the multi-player.
Also - some of you might be interested to see that cinemare are realeasing a "digitally remastered" (where have I heard that term before Mr Lucas) collectors addition of the old amiga game. I wonder will it be much like the GBA title or just improvement on the amiga version. who knows, check out that also at the cinemaware website.. thats another possible buy for me (I really am a slave to old amiga games :) )
Anyway from the screenshots and movies I've seem I'd recommend it.Hopefully Crawfish/Metro 3d/Cinemaware you wont let me down.
