    Well, I would rate it that, wouldn't I! :) But seriously, what a great team it was that put it all together. I flew a few multiplayer missions in the fighters in development and it was the best multiplayer experience ever. If only we'd had time to implement it on the B-17s and test it so it could have been released...

    A simulator that fully justifies its title.

    An extremely flexible sim that really puts you in the middle of the flak at 20,000 feet. [Mar 2001, p.80]

    Whether you're a fan of the genre or just curious, B-17 deserves your attention.

    Beautiful to watch and entertaining to play, the game will draw you in and make you feel connected to your onscreen personas like few others. Serious sim fans should definitely give this game a test flight.
