  1. 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.
  2. Game Informer
    Blazing Angels is definitely a sight for sore eyes. Its visuals will leave you gazing in wonder, but at the same time, the gameplay will have you fighting back tars. [May 2006, p.94]
  3. Blazing Angels would be a perfect place for someone who's never played a dogfighting game to start. For someone who's played a dozen, though, it's just more of the same. It's extremely well-executed sameness, but sameness nonetheless.
  4. Official Xbox Magazine
    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]
  5. Pelit (Finland)
    Fun to play and easy to look at, but the gameplay is ultimately a bit too straightforward and shallow. It is borderline outrageous that the single-player campaign lasts only for 5 hours. [Apr 2006]
  6. 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.
  7. Ubisoft had an excellent idea with the squad idea and the squad controls, but I never really felt like they were a big part of the game.

    it is brilliant and a really good arcadey style feel with all of the spitfires and mustangs.

    This is a very solid flight sim. I played it alongside Wings of War and Blazing Angels is definately the superior title.
