As a turn-based game, there's no way OTR can possibly capture the immediacy of a conventional first person flight sim. Nonetheless, serious students of air combat who aren't hopelessly addicted to adrenaline-pumping action should find the varied tactical challenges it presents to be bot fun and educational.
Over the Reich mixes blood-and-guts mayhem with strategic thinking, turning dogfights into aerial chess matches. The game simulates 100 World War II missions. This level of thought isn't for everybody, but neither is chess.
Over the Reich is a solid strategic aerial combat simulator. It is strategic, it is complex, and on its highest level it might even be called realistic. But I would not call it an exceptional game. It is buggy and limited. The firing arcs are incomprehensible, battling against the game's AI (artificial intelligence) is either like beating up your little brother or boxing Mike Tyson. Buy Over the Reich if you loved Flight Commander 2 or other similar games; but if you are looking for faster-paced action, you won't find it here.
