The campaigns...well they are HARD. The first two missions are a tutorial of sorts, but then...after those missions, the game goes on hard mode. The third mission in the American campaign was impossibly hard the first couple of times I played it, to the point where I wanted to smash my keyboard to bits. Then I looked up on the forums some suggestions for it, tried again, and 5 more times after that and actually progressed in it. Then, I came back to random battles, and suddenly I was MUCH MUCH better at the game, because in that mission, you have to actually aim at PARTS on the enemy bombers to kill them in time, rather than shooting at random. As a result, I believe the missions are more of a hardcore training mode, where you can practice and hone your skills against impossible odds until you become proficient enough for high tiers of gameplay.
If you are getting the campaigns for the money and xp however; don't. The XP is good if you are tier 0-3 in that nation, and the money is decent if you are tier 0-1, but as the missions become more and more difficult, the rewards become more of a "Good Job learning X technique" rather than a reward for completing a level. The premium planes will net a much larger amount of money/XP, especially when combined with premium. The German Wellington is a great money maker, so long as the crew is sufficiently leveled, and the player is at least somewhat familiar with the game.
Overall, the purchase is worth it if you are serious about this game. If you are casual, or still unsure if you will play this game a lot, save this pack for if it goes on sale, or if you reach about tier 9-10, as the bonus planes you get from the campaign are useless, if you don't have the skill or diversity of the same tier to back it up.… Full Review »
Aug 23, 2013Pretty good game been playing for 40+ hours and is quite fun, advancing in levels gives you new planes to play with and they can be upgraded.Pretty good game been playing for 40+ hours and is quite fun, advancing in levels gives you new planes to play with and they can be upgraded.
The tier system matches you with players with roughly the same level plane as you so you won't be in a match with a biplane vs a jet.
After a while the game does get a bit samey and you the tactics do seem to be rinse and repeat but overall a solid game and worth playing for a bit as its f2p.… Full Review »
