  1. There are lots of missions and difficulty options, but they're all unlocked right away, so there's no sense of progress.

    It must have been a pretty awful plane, because it lends its moniker to a game in which it's virtually impossible to maneuver or engage in combat. [Oct 2009, p.90]

    This is a game everyone should stay away from, because it cannot be beaten. The gameplay is essentially broken. What more do you need to know?

    Stupid design decisions. [Dec 2009, p.94]

    Not much here just several levels and a couple planes per nation. Poorly defined objectives and terrible bombing missions.

    Very poor gameplay. No multiplayer. Poor manual. They phoned this one in. Don't pay over $5 for a copy.

Yes, you do unlock everything when you start the game and Yes, it takes 3 million shots to kill someone. But, however, the reason I play it is because there is nothing more satisfying than watch a plane that you just shot fly into the sea :p Full Review »
