Before you buy this game, maybe it would be a good idea to visit the game forum at yuplay.com and see what the actual game players are saying about this game's performance issues.

The game is fun. Skill levels range from a pretty hard Arcade level to a really hard Sim or Realistic level. The forum for the game is full of helpful, knowledgeable people. There are many good flyers playing the game. The graphics are really pretty good. There are some problems with joy stick setup and some other small stuff, but they are not insurmountable if you stick to it.

The difficulty I have experienced seems to stem from the fact that the game developers keep "improving" the game and then mess it up so it is full of glitches. Which may or may not be taken care of in the next "improvement".

So beware, buy the game, it's cheaper here than on the game site, but watch out for the developers " improvements". They may really test your patience.

After years of playing Microsoft Combat Flight Sim games, (The first WWII is mine and my husbands favorite but doesn't work correctly with the joystick on Windows 7), I searched hard to find another WWII Combat flight sim/game that would work well with Windows 7. This one works and is as close as I could get to the older MS games. The one problem we've had is trying to get the joystick set up with the hat switch for looking around the plane. By default, it's set up to make wingman commands. After manually setting up the controls, we are able to look around but it does not snap back to front when you let go of the hat switch. You have to set up a button to reset the camera view. I found this annoying and wonder what the developers were thinking. Other buttons would have been much better for default wingman talk commands. Don't most people use the hat switch to look around? Anyway..this is the only problem we've had with the game so far. In devices, there is a place to set up camera X and Y axis but they don't do anything. We are using the recommended Thrustmaster Joystick for this game so I know that's not the problem, it's a bug in the game. I tried using the latest update patch and found it did not fix the issue and ended up with other annoying problems instead. I had to uninstall the whole game and re-install it from the boxed disk.

I'm a big fan of simulators since 90s and I played lots of them. Recently I enjoyed playing IL2 and less frequently - LockOn.
When I purchased this game I probably expected something closer to IL2 with better graphics and other improvements, mostly related to greater capabilities of modern computers. But this game stands much closer to arcade games than to realistic sims like IL2/LockOn. If you find these games way too complex - you might like Wings of Prey. Otherwise you might not really enjoy it. Also the game is full of small glitches and problems, which makes playing annoying.
So what's good:
- graphics is great. Better than in any flight sim I've seen before;

What's bad (note:I'm always flying on a "simulator" difficulty level):
- There's no time compression! I have to fly for 20 minutes just to reach the target. Damn!
- There's something strange with simulation of your plane's fuel system. When you are flying Hurricane over Britain, you are running out of fuel in about 15 minutes. I have never been a Hurricane pilot, but this seem to be too short. But when you are flying IL2, your fuel gauge always shows a full tank.
- Engine control is ugly. Sometimes you can't adjust the mixture. This leads to an excessive fuel consumption in certain cases.
- Again, controlling prop pitch and mixture with throttle axis is so ugly that I had to remove it completely and use the keyboard instead.
- Damage simulation is lousy. If your engine is damaged and smoking, you might still flying for a long time without any troubles.
- AI is... strange. It's behavior is inconsistent. Sometimes your opponents virtually don't even notice you are here, shooting at them. Other time you will be shot down immediately.
- If you want to play on your own custom difficulty level, you have to readjust it every time you are starting mission. Very time consuming.
- You can't enter your name as a pilot. Not a big deal, but still feels bad.
