    Simple, easy to learn, and lots of fun, "Dogfight 1942" gives you all the action and excitement of high-flying aerial combat without the difficult controls or hard learning curve. Its arcade accessibility will appeal to a wide audience, even those who might avoid this kind of game, and it allows you to simply enjoy the game, soaring over beautifully-rendered land and sea in the midst of historical WWII battles and shooting down enemy planes with guns and missiles. Firing missiles accurately is easily the hardest thing to get a feel for, as there are no reticules or aim assists for you, and nailing shots will mean careful aiming and timing. You also have options for easily switching between fun camera angles, customizing your plane, and flying an impressive number of aircraft. It's great, simple fun and a joy to play. Expand

    This is a perfect game for the arcade enthusiast and fan of WWII dogfights - lots of fast action and a good learning curve. Worth the price if you like games about planes, IMHO. Co-op is awesome!

    While this is a nice game, it is quite frankly overpriced. Coming out a week later with ten dollar DLC doesn't help, either. In the age of either AAA franchises or indie games the consumer has a lot more choice, and games like this as an initial free to play makes more sense.

    Dogfight 1942 offers beautifully designed airplanes and heroic scenes and invites you for a fly in the scenery of the year 1942.

    As an arcade flight combat game, Dogfight 1942 is decidedly average.

    The base gameplay is solid, with smooth controls and the odd exciting mission. However the amount of content isn't large enough to keep you going for more than a couple of hours, though replaying certain missions with another player may extend that time.
