    If the community expands, Flyboys could definitely offer enough online action to satisfy your urges but, until then, it's only worth it if you're name is Billy Bishop.
  2. Despite its token connection to the recent CGI-enhanced MGM movie, Flyboys isn't a standalone aerial shooter so much as a repackaging of iENT's subscription-based Warbirds/Dawn of Aces online combat-flight-sim service. [Apr 2007, p.52]
  3. If you were hoping, like I was, for some old fashioned, arcade dogfighting action, then look elsewhere. [Sept 2007, p.63]
  4. This movie-licensed World War I dogfighter takes off, stalls, and nosedives straight into the ground.
  5. Horrifically dated graphics, a sparse online population, tedious gameplay, and unfathomable online interface and a lack of progressive challenge. [Sept 2007, p.75]
  6. Date, deserted, and drepressing. [Sept 2007, p.81]

    What a cheesy game with terrible graphics, I felt like I was playing an Atari 3200.
