  • Summary: German forces occupy Europe and prepare to invade England. Britain's survival depends on the courage of a handful of men: the pilots of the Royal Air Force.

This exciting air combat shooter brings the heroic actions of the RAF to the DS with intuitive flight mechanics, devious enemy pilots, and wireless support for up to four players. Players fly for the Royal Air Force through missions based on real events that shaped the outcome of the war. Fast-Paced Air Combat: Roll, shoot, bomb, and maneuver your way through some of the toughest opponents ever to take to the skies. Earn medals and ranks as you progress through the course of World War II – if you survive. Exciting Mission-Based Gameplay: Enter into frenzied dogfights with German fighters, strafe columns of enemy tanks, cover the evacuation of Allied troops, knock buzz bombs out of the sky with a tip of your wing and more in an expansive campaign that recreates some of the most famous battles of the war.

  1. A decidedly capable arcade-style flyer that’s a bit short on content, but big on tight gameplay and challenge. If you can find someone to play the multiplayer modes with, you’ll be better served by this title, but the singe-player campaign is well worth playing as well.
  2. Like most of Destineer's other games, this is a niche title for a specific group of people. If you're one of those people then it probably doesn't matter what I say about Spitfire Heroes!
  3. 55
    It handles well enough, and the missions provide a hefty amount of challenge, but it's ultimately repetitive and short.
  4. And the environments! Catastrophically dull. [July 2008, p.72]
  5. Spitfire Heroes does little to distinguish itself among a myriad of middling flight combat games on the DS.
  6. The idea itself is solid, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.
  7. Spitfire Heroes’ gameplay can be confusing and annoying all at once.
