  • Summary: Developed by Transmission Games in Melbourne, Australia, and powered by an all-new engine, Heroes Over Europe promises to raise the bar for flight combat games with the all new "Ace Kill" close combat action, four online modes supporting up to 16 players and fully customizable aircrafts with localized damage. Visually, the game takes no prisoners with meticulously rendered environments including faithful recreations of London, Berlin and the French Alps, and ultra-realistic iconic warplanes of the era, all presented in stunning high definition graphics.

  1. Flying at an altitude combat flight sim aficionados will appreciate. [Issue#26, p.53]
  2. Provides a simple, but pleasing action experience, with a refreshingly polished veneer. [Dec 2009, p.74]
  3. Repetitive and lacking in depth, but good solid fun while it lasts. [Dec 2009, p.59]
  4. The single player missions can be fun, but it's short lived even when you're rewarded with new planes that don't vary that much from the last plane you just flew.
  5. Too easy for experienced virtual pilots though Heroes over Europe can offer good action with fast paced arcade dogfights high in the skies for all FPS fans. [Nov 2009]
  6. 60
    For all it offers in terms of forgiving controls, it lacks in diversity of handling across the available plane models, making the tedium of its mission goals and awkwardness of its special attack features all the more pronounced.
  7. Heroes Over Europe is a stripped down game and will be fairly forgotten with all the great games coming out this fall. Only the die-hard WWII and airplane fans will find this a great game to fly with the Spitfire or the Messerschmitt. The rest of the world will find this game very disappointing and probably won’t be interested. The missions are mostly the same and aren’t very exiting. The Ace Kills can be taken out of the game, and the game is not very pretty.

    A great Simulator with great controlls and a good multiplayer, the Controls are responsive and easier to controll then most Flight Simulator games, Defintely one of the better Flight sim games. With good voice acting and interesting gameplay i recommend to play it. Graphics are great! Im loving this game!
    The game is not the same, and it puts up with something new, a WW2 flight Sim!

    This game is just...WOW. I never seen any WWII Flight Sim game better than this. I remembered the roar of the engines, the reek of gunpowder (yes, this words was taken from game.) This game is like a 'Remake' of Heroes of the Pacific. The timeline is same, but this game is just set in Europe, not Pacific. BUY IT. Expand

    I purchased this game boxed from Amazon. I have Never been able to make this thing play under Win XP sp3. It loads all the beginning stuff but will not ever let me play the game. I contacted Ubisoft and they were no help with this problem. I have read of others having the same problem on the internet. This could have been a good game if it would only PLAY! Don't buy it,. you will likely waste your money and Ubi is no help on this. My system More than meets all requirements to play this game. All drivers etc are up to date also. Anyway, this thing might as well be a coffee coaster!
    I did read on 3 different forums that the copy protection that is being used on this game is the problem, and reason it will not play on a lot of systems. If so that;s a dirty shame, and I will think twice and do more research before buying anymore Ubi products. Buy at your own risk!
