    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Let down. Frusting controls It can take forever to shoot things down because of the bad controls. the graphics don't help, in fact they can make it to where you don't see somethings clear enough to avoid/kill them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Warbirds This game really impressed me. Everything about it was realistic, from the maneuverability of each individual aircraft right down to the sound of the antique propeller-driven turbines churning through the war-torn skies. If you like realism and WWII thrill, it's definitely worth a spin!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Realism meets Fun I've been playing flight simulators since the early 1990's. My repertoire consists of Chuck Yeager's Air Combat, Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator, and the Ace Combat Series. So, you could say that I know what a good flight simulator consists of. I can tell you that this is the most realistic WWII combat flight simulator on the market for the PS3. The Arcade Mode enables novice gamers to enjoy the game without being overwhelmed, while the Simulator mode better suites the more experienced fliers. The graphics are solid, could be a bit smoother but nothing to complain about. The controls are easy to learn AND realistic: Each plane handles differently. The sound is great: listen as comrades and enemies alike shout over the radio as you maneuver the skies. A must-buy for WWII air combat gamers, young and old alike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game! Good for plane fans! I bought this game last friday and will never turn it back in. It is simply the best combat simulator out there and is perfect on my shelf. I love how you can go to cockpit view or a different view. I also like how you can select your plane in instant action but i wish there was a cockpit view for the BF 109 which there is only a cockpit view for the planes you flew in campaign.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally Overated I heard such great reviews of this game so I decided to check it out. I got my copy for $20 a little while ago but based on the reviews I though I was getting a steal I was really misinformed. The Graphics are OK but I honestly think overall but the lack of almost any Allied AI and infinite lives in campaign mode except in the challenge missions in a game claiming to be realistic is pretty bad. Although you may get 3 different views the game is almost impossible to control except from the view behind the plane. The tutorials are boring and long and the things you unlock from them are not very impressive.Although it is nice to see that you have to go into a mission with a set plane but it can get boring not being able to select the plane you want to fly in which would have been cool even if only on arcade difficulty and the others were set due to the harder difficulties being more realistic. Health wise is pretty accurate except for hits from 30mm cannons such as an ME 262 which is underpowered when the computer controls it.Buildings look OK in the game but they are not even close the the planes which themselves are OK but lack enough detail when damages such as a bullet hitting the wing but no hole appears in some cases.Overall the game is a waste of time. In my Opinion either try out Heroes Over Europe or wait for Ace Combat Assault Horizon.
