  1. While I would have liked to have seen online gameplay (and I do take off points for that), the single player campaign is very stong, and the storyline will keep you sucked into it. The controls are great, and the presentation is great.
  2. A more significant shortcoming than the absent interiors is the frankly inexcusable lack of selectable difficulty levels. [PC Gamer UK]

    Its instant accessibility, great overall presentation and tremendous historical feel make this game a secret worth spreading.
  4. Crazy-arse shooting with its brain in its arse, and a mean streak.
  5. It's generally well designed and made, but if you have the choice between a console and a PC version of the game, I'd advise you to grab the console one – solely because it features multiplayer, which I've personally missed in the PC version.
  6. While it accomplishes its goal of providing a fun WWII-themed shooting gallery, it doesn't really shine in any one particular area, resulting in a game that's competent but not very compelling.

    Another second-rate port of a mediocre console shooter. [Feb 2004, p.66]

    This is a very realistic game and fun to play i mean who doesn't like shooting down other planes instead of locking on with missles.

    Once you start using the reflex time button (slows things down) the game becomes too easy, but some missions (Midway, german jet fighters) Once you start using the reflex time button (slows things down) the game becomes too easy, but some missions (Midway, german jet fighters) are impossible to get through without it anyway. God knows why there is no option to choose between different difficulty levels. Average gameplay and graphics, don't waste your money for this game. Expand
