Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII isn’t the first WWII-era flying game for a Microsoft console, and it surely won’t be the last, although Ubisoft Romania could care less where their new franchise falls within this chronology. This savvy development house does, however, care deeply about how Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII will be acclaimed, especially when compared to the previous WWII fly-boy lot; Secret Weapons over Normandy and Heroes of the Pacific.

Spielerisch gleichwertig - doch grafisch steht die Xbox-Version erwartungsgemäß hintenan.

While the game can become slightly repetitive, namely the easy dogfights, as well as the occasional difficulty spikes that can lead to frustration, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII is a worthwhile arcade flight combat title that is solid in both its single player and multiplayer offering. With the lack of good flight titles on home consoles, Blazing Angels will likely please most console-owning flight enthusiasts.

It's much in the same vein as Crimson Skies although I'm sure there will be endless argumnents as to which one is more realistic. Let me just say "neither" and end it already. BA is best played online, but the single player mode can be fun for awhile; it may not capture everyones attention span for the entire 20 missions.

I'm willing to put up with these technical annoyances because some missions are great fun, bit I'm a little let down because the moments of brilliance tell me that the whole game could have been better with a little more time and polish.

Auch wenn Blazing Angels – Squadrons of WWII mal wieder das ausgelutschte Weltkriegsszenario bietet, haben mir die Kämpfe in der Luft viel Spaß gemacht. An den Orginalschauplätzen von bedeutenden Schlachten wie Pearl Harbor, Midway oder London steckt man mitten im Geschehen, ständig passiert um einen herum etwas. Dank der einfachen Steuerung und des fast schon arcadigen Flugverhaltens kann man sich ganz auf die Action konzentrieren, die zweifellos bunt und laut präsentiert wird. Insgesamt hat mir das ähnliche Crimson Skies bei Abwechslungsreichtum, Story und Spielwitz allerdings besser gefallen. Interessant ist Blazing Angels vor allem für Mehrspielerfans, online machen die Gefechte über dem Ozean oder Paris deutlich mehr Spaß als die zusammenhanglose und recht kurze Solo-Kampagne.

Verwacht van Blazing Angels: Squadrons of World War II geen simulatiegame, daarvoor moet je je heil elders zoeken. Hoewel ik er niet echt één goede kan opnoemen op de Xbox. Blazing Angels is pure arcade, en je moet ervoor te vinden zijn. Schrikt een oneindig aantal kogels je niet af, dan ga je heel veel plezier beleven aan deze game, zowel off-, als online. De sfeer die gecreëerd wordt, en het algemene, fijne, gevoel dat dit spel na een speelsessie op je achterlaat, zal nog lang nasluimeren. Crimson Skies evenaren, laat staan overtreffen, is echter ijdele hoop.

Blazing Angels is definitely a sight for sore eyes. Its visuals will leave you gazing in wonder, but at the same time, the gameplay will have you fighting back tears.

There's enough action here to satisfy you if you know you're in the market for your basic WWII flight combat game, but it's also very standard. If you're up for more of the same, or if you haven't played a WWII flight combat game in a good long time, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII is worth checking out.

There's been plenty of good air-combat games on the Xbox, most notably Heroes of the Pacific and Crimson Skies. So how does Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII compare? Well, for every one thing Ubisoft's flyer does well, it does another thing not so well, which in the end results in a decent game with strong multiplayer and online play and a weak single-player experience.

Sous le vernis éblouissant d'une mise en scène qui laisse pantois, Blazing Angels peine pourtant à passionner par son gameplay trop convenu et sa difficulté inexistante. Il n'en demeure pas moins un titre qui vaut la peine d'être essayer pour son côté spectaculaire.

Blazing Angels does a sufficient job making an entertaining are aerial action game. It's not full with substance, but the action is fast and intense. Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII is best enjoyed online where it's a blast, lets just hope more gamers go online. Blazing Angels is worth a look for all interested Sky Captions, just rent it first.

There's something nice about munching popcorn and relaxing your brain. Deeply held tensions flow from you, summoned into the other place as you finally find out who would win: Aliens or Predators? Blazing Angels: Squadrons of World War II is a great popcorn game -- if you can find a way to hold the 360 controller and eat popcorn at the same time. It's not a revolutionary piece of art or design, but it's fun, it looks good, and you can play with your Live friends.
