  • Summary: B-17 Flying Fortress puts you in the heart of the air war over Germany and the occupied territories in autumn of 1944. 25 heart-pounding missions over France, the Netherlands, and Germany. Man each gunner position, avoid deadly flak encounters, drop your bombs accurately...and once you're done, fly back home to the waiting ticker-tape parade! [DSI Games] Collapse

    Sort of a fascinating failure. The game is overly simplistic, lacks variety in its missions and isn't nearly as playable as it should be. At the same time, it's an interesting approach to air combat that hasn't really been done in games, especially on the DS.
  2. B-17: Fortress in the Sky is a simplistic World War II-themed shoot-'em-up that lacks variety and panache.
  3. The biggest bomb in B-17: Fortress in the Sky is the game itself.
  4. Incredibly shallow, even for a budget title.
