  • Summary: Feel the power of really flying a B-17! See what it was like to be part of the 10-man crew on dangerous bombing missions over occupied Europe. Outstanding graphics, animations, and sounds realistically recreate every aspect of the strategic air war in WWII. [Hasbro Interactive]

  1. Before any other developer even thinks about making another flight simulator, they should play this game and then ask themselves if they feel worthy.
  2. 90
    The most stunning combat flight simulator I have ever seen. It's nerve racking, historically educational, deeply immersive, graphically unbelievable, awe-inspiring and a sim that proves once again an old axiom -- it's intense software that drives the development of intense hardware.
  3. Whether you're a fan of the genre or just curious, B-17 deserves your attention.
  4. Nowhere else in today's market will you be able to find a flight simulator with the boldness and keen utilization of detail shown by B-17 Flying Fortress.
  5. 80
    AI flaws and a manual that takes rather a lot for granted make getting started a bit tedious, but when you do it's a great simulation that offers a whole lot more than the standard flight sim and a massive challenge to boot.
  6. Military buffs will no doubt find this an immersive game, even if only in solo play.
  7. A good-looking B-17 experience with a full range of different tasks to tinker with and some quick blasts of action all wrapped in a lightweight strategy envelope.
