  1. GamePower
    A rare gem of a game, BOB is a beautiful, detailed, yet manageable recreation of the battle for the skies of Britain. Complex enough for dedicated simulation enthusiasts yet scaleable for the novice, this is one simulation done right.
  2. GMR Magazine
    Best re-creation of dogfighting ever seen in a WWII flight sim, which is saying something considering how many there are. [Feb 2003, p.94]
  3. This isn't necessarily the Battle of Britain, it's YOUR Battle of Britain, and that makes it a game that anyone interested in that great battle, and flight in general, must have in their collection.
  4. PC Gamer
    The best simulation of the Battle of Britain yet, despite its flaws. [Apr 2001, p.77]
  5. 77
    While Battle of Britain has some definite high points, it lacks the level of excitement that made "MiG Alley" a hit. The flight model is weighted a little too far to the sim side and the graphics aren't as sharp.
  6. Flight simulations are notoriously difficult to get right and Battle of Britain is a valiant effort: experienced pilots looking for a challenge or a history lesson should consider this game - beginners might be better off elsewhere.
  7. Design philosophy aside, Battle of Britain is still too rough, unwieldy, and unbalanced. These problems ultimately make it more tedious than enjoyable.
