    We look forward to seeing how this little strategic game will influence the Firaxis' main series. In the meantime we are going to enjoy this little gem.

    Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol combines Firaxis’ storied tactics with fast-paced mission design and a user interface that translates well from touchscreen taps to mouse clicks.

It's got all the best and worst features of the very best games in turn base strategy genre. By this I mean that, in most cases, you need a good strategy instead of brute force to win the mission but that, alas and once more, it is based on how the AI was programmed rather than on good solid logic. For example, you can't see an enemy plane in a cloud but it can see you and will always manage to stay in longer than you ever could and will always come out in a position to do you harm. Well... I'm sorry but although it is true that a plane in a cloud can't be seen it is also true that that plane pilot can't see either. One could say that this was done because the player can always see the AI's planes outside of clouds even if his plane is in the cloud. It would be true safe from the fact that the AI's planes always move as if it still sees it's opponent plane inside the cloud. That's where, for me, it lost a point. As for the other minus, it's related to the repetitious nature of the missions and thus the lack of re-playability value safe for the fact that there are four different countries to try, each with a different initial bonus. This does not however detracts from the originality and addictiveness of this game. If, like me, you're a fan of turn base games then, by all means, get this one. Full Review »

    Un juego curioso de estrategia aérea donde manejáramos a un escuadrón de cazas en la primera guerra mundial.

    El juego es sencillo, tenemos 4 pilotos que van mejorando según vayamos completando misiones a lo largo de los dos últimos años de guerra en diferentes bandos a elegir. Conseguirán habilidades, mejores aviones y tendremos que jugar con lo que tenemos en cada momento (en algunas ocasiones nosotros tendremos mejores herramientas que el rival y en otras no).

    Dicho esto, el control es sencillo y simple, aunque se vuelve un poco más completo cuando vamos consiguiendo distintas maniobras, que nos darán la capacidad de colocarnos a la cola enemiga, escapar de lugares peligrosos o posicionar mejor nuestro avión. Además de tener que jugar con la altura, punto muy importante en este tipo de guerra.

    No hay mucho más que decir, no es un juego que te vaya a dar muchísimas horas, pero si te gusta el concepto y lo encuentras barato, probablemente te de unas horas de diversión con una primera pasada a la campaña.
