Jim Gregory and his pals have done a good job for Mirrorsoft in recreating the atmosphere of the Battle of Britain. The concept of saving your record in order to progress in rank and glory is a good one, and the instructions state that life gets more difficult as you move up the promotion ladder - landings have to be more precise and so on.

Spitfire 40 is a friendly program, not nearly so difficult to get into as some earlier simulators, and it's very engaging with its role playing element.
Crash! (Mar, 1986)
Fast, fun and playable are just some of the great things about Spitfire 40. Zooming around the screens... er sorry, skies, and blowing up all the enemy planes in sight us a challenge. The best simulation in years, with detailed screens, and great mobility as planes come up behind you. To start the plane at first was a bit hard, but as I got into it the problems were quickly overcome. Once I'd taken off, flying above the ground twisting and turning was great fun - an exciting game. If you get bored with trying to be an air combat hero, you can always try landing for another medal... Overall, a truly brilliant simulation.
Die Grafik ist bei diesem Flugsimulator sehr gut gelungen und sehr detailliert; auch der Sound ist erträglich, wenn auch nicht gerade überragend. Aber das fällt bei dem Spielvergnügen nicht so sehr ins Gewicht. Wer einen einfachen, gut ausgearbeiteten Flugsimulator sucht, der zudem noch viel Spaß bietet sollte zu SPITFIRE 40 greifen, die Ausgabe wird es wert sein.
