Ich habe sowohl die 64er als auch die Schneider-Version von MlRRORSOFT getestet und muß gestehen, daß Graphik und Handhabung der Spitfire bei SCHNEIDER wesentlich besser waren. Erstaunlich? Mag sein, aber der hochgelobte C-64 ist eben nicht in allen Belangen der Superstar! Des Handbuch - welches auch bei dieser Simulation nicht fehlen darf — gibt genauesten Aufschluß über den Tastenbelegungsplan, d. h., wie man starten, landen und sich im Kampfgeschehen verhalten muß. Die Graphik ist überzeugend, der Sound vom Allerfeinsten und die Effekte beim Flug selbst durchaus ansprechend. Ein Spiel, das man besitzen sollte!
Commodore Format
Where the action falls down is in its representation of the outside world: convincing still graphics - cockpit, maps and instrument panel - are let down by a scarcity of detail and realism in the 3D.
I've certainly seen more gripping flight simulators. The excellently detailed internal view of the plane didn't make up for the jerky and uninteresting external one. The task of searching out and shooting down the duck like enemy aircraft soon proved rather boring. With more interesting and varied simulators to compete against, I don't think this is one that will take off.

World War II flight simulator; poor graphics and poorer execution. It flies like a bus with the maneuverability of a tractor-trailer.
