    An amazingly original take on strategy. No building mines, baracks, and cranking out endless steamroller waves of troops. It's just you, your wingman, and the enemy. Each turn matters, because on wrong move means the enemy gets the drop on you and shreads your plane. Its all about realistic physics, flight mechanics, positioning for optimum firing paths, and working with your wingmanAn amazingly original take on strategy. No building mines, baracks, and cranking out endless steamroller waves of troops. It's just you, your wingman, and the enemy. Each turn matters, because on wrong move means the enemy gets the drop on you and shreads your plane. Its all about realistic physics, flight mechanics, positioning for optimum firing paths, and working with your wingman to set up crossfires, or decoys. Taking realistic flight physics and turning them into a grid based strategy game? Only Sid M. could have pulled that off. I love this game.

    The only reason it didn't get a higher score was because it was a little light on the extras. Not much in the way of story telling, the leveling system is mediocre, etc. But none of that stops it from being a great game that is totally worth the price.

    First of all, Sid has chosen the iOS infamous "pay-to-cheat" model.
    The game mechanics are nice, but there are almost no strategic choices to be made.

    Simple yet enjoyable conversion made for tablets, which might be the reason why it tends to stall on PCs. If you manage to get it running, feel free to adjust the score accordingly.

    Ace Patrol tries to apply the Civilization V template to WW1 air combat. Unfortunately, it a little too disjointed to fully engage.

    There's a sense of automation that some otherwise satisfying pilot customisation options can't shoot down. [Aug 2013, p.78]
