  • Summary: You can take to the skies and reenact some of the greatest air battles of World War II in Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII. The game features squadron-based combat, which lets you use the individual characteristics of your wingmen to complete the 18-mission single-player campaign. Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII uses the graphical power of the Xbox 360 to accurately model battle sites--such as England, Morocco, and Pearl Harbor--and the 38 aircraft included in the game. Up to 16 players can battle via Xbox Live in both competitive and cooperative game modes. Expand

  1. The Follow Camera turns a decent game into a great game. Deeper multiplayer support would have been nice to drive home the "next-gen" quotient.
  2. BA is best played online, but the single player mode can be fun for awhile; it may not capture everyones attention span for the entire 20 missions.
  3. The game still has looks to kill for and offers up the identical Xbox Live modes and challenge of the 360 version. [May 2006, p.71]

    Flying through the historical battles are fun the first time, but after you complete the game you'll feel more of a sense of relief than elation because, without any real story, the game lacks emotional appeal.
  5. I kept playing it thinking there was more, or something I missed that was jading me. But in the end the game is just not that good for me.

    With the ability to repair your plane while in the air, Blazing Angels is a pretty simple game.
  7. Recommended only to Xbox Live subscribers or kids with half-assed history papers due tomorrow.
