  1. The first thing that drew me into the game was the amazingly beautiful world in which the game takes place.
  2. Not up to the lofty standards set by "IL-2," but still an entertaining WWII prop sim. [June 2002, p.56]
  3. Hard core flight sim veterans will find its simplified flight model and weak campaign to be disappointing.
  4. For a game that retails for around 40 bucks, I would be hard pressed to spend ten.
  5. Attack Squadron's high points are in the bomber missions...The immersion is excellent. [July 2002, p.76]
  6. While the game's flight mechanics and damage model provide some enjoyment, the few missions that ship with the program are uninvolving.
  7. It has too many defects and omissions.

    This game's graphics are incredibly archaic (CFS 1 looks better), its flyable plane's characteristics are generic, its documentation is absurdly inadequate, and it doesn't support Microsoft's first generation force feedback joystick. I will never buy any simulation with Jane's in its title again. Don't, repeat don't, buy this game! Expand
