  • Summary: Battle of Europe is a fully 3D arcade action game. Taking place in the skies over Europe, players are taken through breathtaking terrain modeled for London, Norway, Dunkirk and Berlin. A full hanger of fighters and bombers completely submerse the player in the reality of the World War II flying aces; risking their lives daily in countless dog fights, and returning home in a smoking plane littered with bullet holes ...if at all.

  1. The flight controls, overall, on the keyboard were solid enough, but as I’ve stated a few times before, the game may just not be challenging enough for flight veterans.
  2. Typography aside, Battle of Europe is an enjoyable game that simply fails to distinguish itself as a particularly great one. [Oct 2006, p.65]
  3. I recommend this game only with the caveat that you find it available at a budgeted price point.
  4. 54
    Unfortunately, many of the things you'd expect to matter in an arcade flying game simply don't apply here.
  5. The ride is quite fleeting, however, and most experienced PC prop-jocks will whip through Battle of Europe in a single afternoon. [Aug 2006, p.90]
  6. Battle for Europe will sap any enthusiasm that you have for the game from the very beginning and won’t do anything to generate any fun or excitement if for some reason you decide to stick with it. Look for your flight thrills elsewhere.
  7. 40
    But the game runs clean and looks nice enough in action. For a budget price, you could do worse. Yeah, it’s not a ringing endorsement, nor is it meant to be.
