Avalon Hill deserves credit for delivering a game with enough historical accuracy to be educational and enough play value to be fun. Achtung Spitfire isn’t for everyone, but for history buffs, strategy gamers or anyone tired of the same ol’ shoot-’em-up, it’s worth a look.
Given its price tag, Achtung Spitfire probably won't provide enough excitement for many gamers. The gameplay, although engaging, is slow; and the animations that happen when, say, a plane is shot down have to run their full course before returning control to the player. Some of the interface elements in the strategy map (such as the automatic pausing of the game in certain situations) are a bit clunky. For players who love strategy board games, though, especially those produced by Avalon Hill, Achtung Spitfire might be a great fit.
