  • Summary: Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions shows World War II from a different perspective – that of an elite pilot who is part of a secret team. In the game, the player undertakes some of the most dangerous missions in exotic locations all over the globe. As an elite pilot, the player goes from one great adventure to another, while battling the most lethal experimental weapons of the Third Reich. The squad's mission is to prevent the ultimate weapon from being built. To help players in this quest, they have at their disposal an assortment of highly experimental aircraft and weaponry. Secret Missions comes straight out of the history books of World War II's most top secret projects. Fly above hills and mountains, navigate through treacherous mountain passes and dogfight in the clouds with enemies. Take part in large-scale battles through various conditions: darkness, rain, snow, and air turbulence. Secret Missions takes players around the world, from Paris, Rome and Moscow to exotic locations like Rangoon and Cairo and the highest mountain ranges of the Himalayas. Each mission brings its own surprises, twists and unique challenges. Players have access to some of the most advanced and unusual aircraft and weapons of WWII, as well as access to a huge assortment of weapons, including high-velocity cannons and early guided missiles. Multiplayer features free-for-all, co-op and squad-based play, including the brand new Capture the Flag and Epic Battle modes, the latter pitting two teams of players against each other in a large-scale battle with conquerable bases and objectives that can be destroyed in order to gain the upper hand on the opponent.

  1. Solid gameplay, stunning aerial effects, but nothing that will have you celebrating. [Oct 2007, p.82]
  2. But in the end, Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII simply isn't worth the price of admission.
  3. The SIXAXIS controls do feel bolted on, but left to traditional controls, it succeeds in being a solid flight game. It may not have some of the polish in the presentation that more impressive games like the oft-mentioned Ace Combat games have, but it's still fun.
  4. If you've got even a passing interest in aircraft this is definitely worth a look. [Feb 2008, p.78]
  5. While the missions are fun and the online multiplayer more than adequate, the game can be completed with very little trouble. If you enjoyed the first game you will certainly like this one even more.
  6. Aviation purists might hate the game, but at the end of the day, it's really good fun. [Jan 2008, p.102]
  7. I'm not saying it's not fun, because it is, but as a sequel, a few opportunities to really push the franchise were sadly missed. [Jan 2008, p.85]
