They did their best...

The Good
This game had good intentions; you certainly feel that you are a fighter pilot in World War II. The sense of realism is there and the graphics aren't bad either.

The Bad
Unfortunately, it just wasn't executed well enough. The missions are far too linear, with similar objectives each time (albeit a wide possible range, but often it only chooses from 2 or 3 types). The game is over very quickly and the enemy AI is rather poor.

The Bottom Line
This game is OK - could have been good, but it remains OK. Rather unknown nowadays and in my opinion only worth it if you come across it in a bargain bin.
