I’m happy that Naps Team is still around. I played their first game, a beat ‘em up Shadow Fighter on Commodore Amiga 23 years ago. It was a bit homespun but really thrilling and competent fighter. There’s some similar likable roughness to Iron Wings. The game needs some more ironing to its wings to get rid of the bugs and seriously tone down the ridiculous time limits to really take off. Then again, there is no air combat game quite like it around at the moment. For all its bents and bullet holes in the game design, there’s an indelible picturesqueness in the game's visceral action. Iron Wings is like a pulp novel. You know it’s a bit silly but it will entertain you nonetheless.
I am a fan of the air-combat genre, so I was surprised that I didn't know anything about Iron Wings.
Developed by the same title who did GEKIDO an the oldie Shadow Fighter Btw.
The game follows the story of 2 guys Jack and Amelia, during the WWII
Let me say the story is fiction , so do not exepect anything super real ,but that's the point, everything is told as an Interview to the old 90yo pilots, kinda of fun indeed.
Interview 3d models aren't so great althougt the storytelling isn't that bad, despite voiceover doesn't shine, but this is not the reason why you buy this game isn't it ?
Where the game letterally shines is in the game itself , it starts quite slow , the first missions are short and ment to be tutorials ,althoug I flew over NY tutorial for hours for my personal enjoyment ! simply amazing !.
But when the battle begins, oh boy ,you'll never stop until you did it ! Sometimes could be hard , but it's because you need to find the correct approach to knock down the objectives.
But I don't want to spoil anything , you have to figure it out by yourself. Maybe some missions are a bit longer than they should be or a bit hard but it isn't a big deal afterall
it' about 20$ so I really don't find any reason at all ,if you like action flight games as Blazing Angels or Crimson Skies to not buy this game
Iron Wings is enormously entertaining combat in gorgeous settings. The world detail is breathtaking ! The planes themselves look great and can be aesthetically and customized to better suit the player's needs. Visually, not too many options are available just camouflages, but they are enough entertainment and according to developers the right camouflage reduces plane damage. It's fun and hard enough, you always have to figure it out how to approach an objective. A must play for all arcade action flight games
This is very a very intense World War air battle shooter ... In some new style and greatly effected scenery and videos in some really good made arcadish format in high resolution 2715..
Im almost surprised this game came on steam...I guess ive been waiting for something like this ..for long..
I have only played 1.8 hours now and I still feel some " pilot air breath taking g-force patternes to my head " and I almost still hear screams..death and guns and fireballs blazing thru the skies...
I feel like Im someone who just get caught by the neck by somekind of a soldier and thrown in an aircraft that i dont know anything about ..this is quite scary .. its insane...
This is kinda epic..
If you are fan of first person shooters world war games and wanna get off the ground and into the skies ...you have to try this air battle game...
This is pretty cool for now and I simply cant get a refund when I pass the 2 hours....
I wanna stay and eleminate all enemy forces...
OR maybe later on in the game this was just a fun but casual nightmare... that will see later on in the game and at the END....
for **** get it if you like air battle world war games with different classic aircrafts and **** "camera" ..splash splash throw the bombs on ground thru a "bombing view"
SAVE JOURNEY SOLDIER...
Well, was not sure to buy this game I didn't even know it exists just before the day it come out.
Damn ! This is so cool ! After a quite brief tutorial missions I have spent my first 2 hours shooting and blasting and woaa!
Long time since so much fun with a flying shooter game ! Thanks to developers!
It's a shame I didnt know about your Kickstarter Campaign.
Well done !!!
I was really looking forward to Iron Wings and the main reason for that is because the Xbox One doesn’t really have many of these types of games. Unfortunately though the game fails to deliver in some important areas and this frustrated me because there is some good here but it’s ultimately outweighed by the bad. The missions in the game however are actually pretty good, and the best thing is that they have a decent variety to them. Unfortunately though the controls and shooting mechanics accompanying the missions are frustrating to say the least. The controls in the game feel awkward and they never seem to get better throughout which definitely impacts on the enjoyment you have with the game. The shooting mechanics also feel awkward throughout and no matter what you do you never feel you fully connect with them, which is definitely frustrating. I did however enjoy the slow-mo mechanic, and when using this mechanic this is without a doubt the most exciting parts of the game. The game also boasts a decent story and I thought the story did a great job of stirring up some emotions, and it would have been even better if some of the voice over work was better. The presentation side of the game is lacklustre and definitely ruins the games immersion. The game can look alright at times but sadly them times are few and far between, and ultimately all you remember are the poor animations which stay with you throughout. At the end of the day Iron Wings had the potential to be a good and interesting game, but unfortunately it fails too many times on the basics and this means it never reaches anywhere near its full potential. The price tag on the game also makes this title suffer because there isn’t enough content in the game to justify such a hefty price tag. There is some good things here every now and then and I think some will enjoy this game, but I think a lot more won’t enjoy the game so unfortunately I can’t fully recommend Iron Wings.
Remarkably bad. The controls are so bad it's kind of amazing. Game is nearly unplayable, graphics are embarrassing and the VO is worse. Even on sale this is a terrible purchase, at full price it's just silly. This is Microsoft's Life of Black Tiger or Gachduine, basically.
SummaryWorld War 2 Intense action-adventure air combat game Player takes on the role of the two pilots, Jack and Amelia, as they attempt to take down Nazi aerial menace across a rich campaign of missions, each with numerous objectives and enemies as well as side objectives.
