    The range of planes is pretty good and the flight and combat modeling straddles the line between hardcore realism and ease of entry. It's not a standout in the genre, but the rarity of the theater makes it an attractive game for sim fans.
  2. Those who will only settle for the best in terms of flight model fidelity and cutting-edge graphics should let this one fly on by.
  3. The simplified avionics are well-suited for novice PC aviators, but with Wings' bland terrain and cookie-cutter campaign missions, it just doesn't pack enough ordnance for disconcerning jet-sim fans. [Jan 2005, p.90]
  4. Only the inherent fun of multiplayer dogfighting saves it. [Dec 2005, p.92]
