    Wings of Prey would stand out even if the sim field were considerably more crowded. The concessions and compromises to realism are bound to aggravate purists, but it's a small price to pay for the range of flight models you get here.

    A game that flies high, but is almost shot down by severe controller issues. [Mar 2010, p.92]
  3. Flight model is the strongest point of Wings of Prey, even despite its arcade-style single-player campaign.
  4. Wings Of Prey is a well thought out visual and audio treat to the senses.
  5. For 40$ Wings of Prey Offers a fifty missions long campaign and a mix of arcade style and realistic flight experience.
  6. In the simulation mode there's some sort of simulation to it, but the graphics demand pretty much raw power. Many details and great gameplay can be found here.
  7. The incredible intensity and vividness of Wings of Prey's dogfights is built on the authority of its flight models, the verisimilitude of it graphics and the quality of its bandit AI (excellent, apart from the odd sleepy moment) but there are other smaller factors at work too.

    This is for sure the best flight sim I have ever played. I have played everything from Janes, IL2, BlackShark,and others I can't think of themThis is for sure the best flight sim I have ever played. I have played everything from Janes, IL2, BlackShark,and others I can't think of them all. This sim can be played in Arcade while your learning and just funing or similation for the whole deal or in real mode. This sim will work for everyone. It has the best graphics I have seen in a sim. They are better than Apache AH64 Assault which is also a very good game.
    I love this game. These people put their FULL expertise in this game. I like it so much that I even bought the add on called Wings of Luftwaffe. The latest release recognizes many flight rigs and sticks. My Thrustmaster flight t HOTAS was listed and played with very little tinkering. I do wish you could change more planes and more settings for control devices (sticks), but even as it is, it's worth 2x what you pay for it. There are combat sims that cost 3x what this one does and aren't half as good. If you have had doubts about purchasing this game, Don't think twice, just buy it! Activation is a little bit of a pain but support is good and you can go online and dogfight with people all over the world. There are all kinds of free decals and add ons also. I haven't ever rated a game as high as this one before. These guys really put their heart in this one.

    Nothing truly amazing going on here, but oddly enough this game keeps bring me back to the **** arcade or simulation the graphics are breathNothing truly amazing going on here, but oddly enough this game keeps bring me back to the **** arcade or simulation the graphics are breath taking and the combat is fast paced and satisfying. So far this is the best WW2 flight simulator/combat game to date with the 'Cliffs over Dover' offering little competition is bugs and poor performance. I think ill stick to my better looking, smoother running Wings of Prey. Expand

    Pretty good - marred only by it's limited choice of supported flight controllers (and the painful and flaky mechansim for configuring Pretty good - marred only by it's limited choice of supported flight controllers (and the painful and flaky mechansim for configuring unupported ones), the choice of campaigns (no Pacific campaign), and the odd balance of available aircraft (yes, I know it's a russian game - but no Japanese, and few allied aircraft?). No regrets though... Expand
