SummaryGo Army Air Corp!
The GoodPersonally, I've always had a sense of awe towards the men flew those B-17's. Only the bravest (craziest?) would go on daylight bombing raids that deep into enemy territory. That said, this game gave me a taste of what it must have been like for those men. The game is fairly realistic for its age. Take-offs, landings, gunnery, its all there. It gets a little hectic as you try to be ten soldiers at once. The actual bombing run is what I enjoy the most (if I ever make it that far...), and it actually makes me sweat sometimes. Trying to land a severly damaged bomber is also a diffifcult task. But I love a challenge.
The BadAnd challenge it is. This game has a rather steep learning curve. You can keep running the training mission until you have every task down, but that gets a little tedious after a while. If you leave the "autopilot" on and just watch each task, that helps too.
One of the things that is really difficult is shooting down the Luftwaffe. In eight (failed) missions, I've only shot down two of those buggers.
