Description

The much anticipated sequel to the first Red Baron, this game allows you to take to the skies once again in actual World War I aircraft. You are allowed to fly a wide variety of fighter craft (scouts, as they were called) from both sides in "instant action," single mission, and campaign modes. The campaign mode features a dynamic war front that is always changing based on the actions of you, your squadron, and all the other squadrons positioned along the Front.

The basic idea stays true to the original Red Baron, but with improved graphics, more realistic flight models, smarter AI, and a much larger, vibrant game world.

Trivia

Coupon

Some versions of Red Baron II included a coupon inside redeemable for a free Red Baron Premium brand Pizza. Amazingly, when online video game reviewer Clint Basinger of Lazy Game Reviews tried to redeem said coupon 17 years later, it turned out to still be valid. You can find the video here.

Patch

Sierra eventually released a patch for Red Baron II that fixed most of the glaringly obvious bugs and provided 3D support (hence the name change to Red Baron 3-D).
