    After all of the dizzying, head-spinning tricks learned from playing Air Conflicts: Secret War, maybe you'll actually want to take control over real flying machines. Just don't get the idea on my Southwest flight next week. This isn't the flight simulation people will write home about, but it gets a thumbs up for trying.

    Air Conflicts proves that even a budget entry can be a lot of fun. If more time and resources were put into crafting it, this could have been a great arcade flying game. Unfortunately, though, the poor presentation drags down the entire experience.

    While the short missions benefit the title, the lack of multiplayer also limits its longevity unless you plan to make this part of your next LAN party. This is exactly the best choice for fans of arcade style flight combat games, but if you've played them all, it wouldn't hurt to give this one a shot.

    Kalypso Media's Air Conflicts: Secret Wars offers an arcade-style single-player mode that will appeal to the casual air combat gamer and a multiplayer component that will offer a tougher challenge to the more serious player, but only if other players actually show up.

    Air Conflicts: Secret Wars is far from a bad game, but it doesn't stand out among the current slew of titles. Not to mention it is a genre that console gamers have all but forgotten. Still, if you have a love for classic dog fighting, then there may be something here for you.

    If you can handle the delivery, though, you're rewarded with some of the best flight mechanics on the 360 - especially if you take the time to master the Simulation controls. While completely unrealistic, the combat is fluid, fast, and fun.

    Air Conflicts: Secret Wars has many technical flaws and start too slow to be fun. Some missions are good, many too many are flat and boring.

    The atmosphere in Air Conflicts: Secret War is transmitted properly through the famous aviators, however, the game can't point with anything other, only the multiplayer can - at present enemy – be fun.

    Developer Games Farm didn't deliver us a simulation like promised, but turned Secret Wars into a decent arcade shooter. The multiplayer can be very fun but the singleplayer drags down the score because of the bad voice acting and the simplified AI.

    It's a bit of a weird one then, as neither the story nor the action is particularly enjoyable, but neither is specifically bad either.

    Air Conflicts: Secret Wars might be a budget title in price, looks, and polish. But it's a simple and surprisingly enjoyable game that hardcore fans of the genre will enjoy if they can go in with low expectations.

    A muddled budget WW2 flight sim. It's kooky but there are better alternatives out. [Oct 2011, p.96]

    Not enough going on up there. [Sept 2011, p.102]

    Painfully dull gameplay. [Issue#75, p.82]

    what..the..hell..? a lame girl named DeeDee is the main character with no charisma, no emotional reactions and every other voice ingame sounds ALWAYS the same..the game is slow paced, boring and has no realism AT ALL, it's just a very lame arcade WWII flying game..do not buy it, there are MANY other titles so much better than this like IL-2 birds of prey, birds of steel, heroes over europe, blazing angels, this game is just dull..BUUUUUUUT, maybe, just maybe, some more casual gamers could actually enjoy it, it's very simple to play and the slow paced gameplay makes it easy to understand and play, something that some games don't even think about and the action becomes a HUGE clusterf@#k

    If you're a casual gamer, try it, MAYBE you'll like it, if not, don't even get close to it
