Summary

If you're looking for an "arcade-like" sim, this one will do

The Good

I enjoyed being able to play both sides of the war. Being able to select what type of plane you wanted to fly was a nice touch also.

The Bad

It got very repetitive. I prefered flying the fighters and I really got frustrated near the end of the career (from April 1945 on) when the game forced me to fly the Avenger, a torpedo plane. It is really tough dogfighting with Japanese Zeroes in that plane and I hated the fact I had no choice but to fly it.

The Bottom Line

For my first WWII sim, I really enjoyed it (until the end). However, there are much better choices out there today.
