  1. For $35, you get a ton of replayability plus new downloadable planes and campaigns each month. For those who don't mind abstraction in the name of fun, DIF is a must-have.

    It has a few shortcomings, but the gameplay is smart and challenging. Down in Flames is also conveniently easy to jump into and out of when you want a quick bit of fun. Then again, it's so addictive that you'll probably be playing for a good, long time.
  3. Quotation forthcoming. [Jan 2005]
  4. A quick-playing "war gaming lite" game for the grognard crowd.
  5. There are probably some niche players out there who will love Down in Flames, but the steep learning curve, unfulfilling graphics and repetitive sound bites definitely rule out this title as an introduction to the genre.
  6. 55
    If you are a die hard fan of aeronautical history and love the idea of a dog fighting turn-based strategy game, this may appeal. To everyone else, it's a complete bore-fest.
