Visually, the game takes no prisoners with meticulously rendered environments including faithful recreations of London, Berlin and the French Alps, and ultra-realistic iconic warplanes of the era, all presented in stunning high definition graphics.

  1. As uninspiring as it is, Heroes Over Europe does deliver adequate multiplayer features that are found in a majority of other similar titles.
  2. Great arcade fun, but the rigid mission structure and the absence of a good save game function can be frustrating when playing lengthy or difficult missions.
  3. Heroes over Europe is an entertaining title between action and authenticity.
  4. This game has its good points, and while enjoyable in places, unfortunately lacks the appeal and polish to make it a long-term favourite.
  5. 60
    If you're looking for a straightforward World War II-themed aerial combat game, Heroes Over Europe is worth a look. While competent, there are better flying titles worth your attention.
  6. If the thought of realistic flight modeling, amazing graphics and gameplay, and historical fact scare you, then this budget game might be up your alley.
  7. With IL-2 asserting impressive air superiority in the last month or so, there's no reason to pick up this ropier and less satisfying interpretation of the same conflict. Technically unimpressive and snooze-inducing, it's less "chocks away" and more "chock this in the bin".

    Much has been made of the fact that this game and Il-2 have been released so close to each other. Many comparisons are being drawn between the two. I

    What a nice change of pace! A game that stylizes itself over those World War 2 movies made in the 50

    Lackluster graphics, subpar sound, and a lack of features make this game, the sequel to 2005's Heroes of the Pacific(one of my favorite Lackluster graphics, subpar sound, and a lack of features make this game, the sequel to 2005's Heroes of the Pacific(one of my favorite games of all time) a sequel only Hollywood can be proud of. It looks last gen, suffers from unforgivable slow down when the action heats up, and is sparse in its content, providing 14 campaign missions and 4 modes/maps for MP. The slowdown is almost unbearable, but some other quirks loom inside this rough ride: texture pop up abounds, collision detection is laughable, and the game won't allow you to target certain enemies...... and the friendly AI is worthless to boot. Another weird quirk; the rumble feature is not selectable, and everytime a bullet hits you, or you engage warspeed, the controller vibrates more violently than in any game I have ever played. Result? numb hands and a dead controller battery, certainly NOT a fun or engaging feature. I had my hopes up for this game. It does NOT deliver, other than in the cool 40's menus. Save your money, or at best rent this game. The competition that just released earlier in the month has quite a bit more to offer, both in replay and in quality. This one crashes and burns. Expand
