    Instant action mode is like getting bonked on the head by five people while trying to find your bearings and doesn't really even help you learn to fly.

    Pack up this game's troubles in your old kit bag and head for the glorious Live-enabled "Crimson Skies" instead. [Nov 2004, p.96]

    Though you can certainly do worse than Wings of War at its budget price point, the gameplay ultimately has more holes than the Red Baron’s adversaries.

    This budget-priced shooting gallery would be more thrilling if your plane didn't control like a garbage truck sliding across ice. [Dec 2004, p.170]

The game is fun for about 5 minutes, then becomes drearily repetitive. It's graphically clumsy. The AI is rough. The music is flat. This game kept asking me to feed it quarters. I wish somebody would make a darker Crimson Skies about WW1 dogfighting with that game's same great graphics and addictive gameplay. Full Review »

    Not a bad flight sim, easy to pick up and play and just enough variety of planes to keep you interested. Gets a little repetitive after a Not a bad flight sim, easy to pick up and play and just enough variety of planes to keep you interested. Gets a little repetitive after a while, but a nice change to the usual games coming out on Xbox. Reminicent of 'Wings' on the Amiga - anyone who liked that will be sure to enjoy this badboy!
