    This game is great! And at a great price. I'm figuring the PC version is much better than the Xbox version, based on the reviews I've read. The PC version has great graphics with lots of little details like flocks of birds, lots of ground activity, and great plane models. It runs great on my mid-range system, and kept me flying for 4 hours straight last night. The historical This game is great! And at a great price.

The historical accuracy may be off, and the game isn't a true sim, but anyone that enjoys flying games would likely get a kick out of this game. Il2 may not get much use from me for a while! Expand

    Is this a great game? I tried to click the 8 but it turned out to be a 9. Let it be. When you are a serious hardcore gamer who wants to approach a game as yet another heavy challenge, you should not go for this game because this game is not a heavy task. Did someone ever wonder why computer games are 'played' ? In this game is an answer ! This game is just there for you to enjoy Is this a great game?

Did someone ever wonder why computer games are 'played' ? In this game is an answer ! This game is just there for you to enjoy yourselves! Nice planes to fly with. Easy to fligh. Nice heavy guns. Everything is just 'hop in and go'. 'Wings of war' is a very cute game. You fly the WW-one planes trying to shoot other planes, bomb ground targets (and even fire rockets, bit too much historical freedom in my opinion). Flying is not difficult here. If you try to understand the physics of flying you can play the game better. But you dont need to. This is a very 'pure' game. A nice flight of fancy. Dont expect a 'greatest gaming experience'. That was not intended by the makers. It is just here for you to enjoy it. And that is what I do :) Expand

    This game is fun as can be, great graphics, come on it's 20 bucks, having better time on the internet, than single player Doom.

    This is a very good ww1 flight game!...no it's not Red Baron 3d but who cares!! (it's not meant to be) it looks great and is a blast to play, the controls are also very good with the Wingman Extreme joystick.

I found it to be an interesting and enjoyable experience, and more than worth the price!! Expand

  1. The game's biggest weakness is the lack of multi-player options.
  2. The campaign mode is outstanding and provides quite a few hours of fun and mayhem. Who can resist fun and mayhem? The lack of multiplayer severely hurts this title for me, but the cost helps ease some of the pain.
  3. Online play, I might mention, is excellent. Though currently sparsely populated, Wings of War servers tend to draw dogfight specialists, so your chances of getting more skilled when fighting online is very good.
