Windows 3.xComputer Gaming World (CGW)
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.

Windows 3.xAdrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Although accessible by novice flight sim players, this title seems to be designed for the serious flight simulation fan. The vast array of options can be most appreciated at the higher levels of difficulty, but it will take a novice flight sim player quite a while to work up to that point. However, for historical accuracy and depth of gameplay, this is a title that can keep flight sim fans occupied for a long, long time.

This game is both realistic and engrossing. Anyone who enjoys flight simulations or wishes to fight World War II all over again will find this game a wonderful addition to their library. Included in the many types or kinds of airplanes players can choose to fly are bombers, fighter planes, interceptors and more.

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.

Wargame inédit à base de combats aériens. Captivant, pas évident, mais répétitif.

Over the Reich is a game for rarefied tastes. If you don't have an interest in the "head game" of aerial combat, the complexities of setting up attacks, deciding which maneuver to use, and exactly HOW to approach an enemy pilot or fighter wing, then it will seem deadly dull. But if you can see through the "twitch factor" of air combat to the nuances of move, counter-move, and reaction, then you might want to take it for a spin.

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.
