Zero (Oct, 1990)
Wings Of Fury's greatest strength is the range of factors to it. As well as different levels there are different skills to master. At first simply taking off is a bit tricky, then there's landing to master and what about using missiles effectively (i.e. without crashing) or actually winning a dogfight instead of running away all the time. These are just a few of the different challenges the game throws at you. The lack of variety between levels might affect the game's long term appeal, but its immediate impact is exciting, well executed and unputdownable.

Raze (Dec, 1990)
This game is a little gem, which comes as no surprise when you look at Broderbund's previous hits like Typhoon Thompson.

Amiga Format (Nov, 1990)
Mostly, shoot-em-ups tend to take themselves a mite too seriously. Wings of Fury manages to skate this trap by producing an action-filled blast which is loaded with humour. The flying bodies of enemy troops under fire caused a few chortles around here! Unfortunately, some people will find the tasks a bit too slow and arduous to get deep into the game, but with perseverance the game soon proves to be an enjoyable little jaunt which is well worth checking out.

If you like your shoot 'em ups on the cerebral side then this is for you.

Zzap! (Nov, 1990)
A great one this, well I would say that being a tad biased towards all things aerial but Fury really is fun. It all smacks of Choplifter with little men running around, except this time you're allowed to blast them! The torpedo runs are good and dogfighting with Zeros is enjoyable (pity I've never shot one down) but it's nothing compared with the thrills of bombing and strafing the Japs. Everyone who played it enjoyed the island attacks most, it's a shame Broderbund didn't make more of them. The plane itself is extremely good with a nice smoke effect when hit. Fury has the playability to make for a great full-price game but lacks variety on the Amiga.

Wings of Fury n'est clairement pas parfait, mais vous savez, il y a des jeux qui brillent par leurs aspects techniques, et d'autres par leur ambiance et les nouvelles sensations qu'ils procurent aux joueurs. Wings of Fury fait partie de cette dernière catégorie. À présent c'est à vous de vous faire une idée, mais autant vous prévenir : l'essayer c'est l'adopter.

Power Play (Nov, 1990)
Dachte ich aufgrund erster Bildschirmfotos an einen einfachen, actionhaltigen P-47 Verschnitt, wurde ich schon während des ersten Take-Offs eines Besseren belehrt. Realistische Motorengeräusche, ein etwas wackliges Fluggefühl... Wings of Fury gehört einer Spielegattung an, die ich schon als ausgestorben glaubte: Militärische Pseudosimulationen, bei denen die Programmierer versuchen den Krieg grafisch und akustisch möglichst realistich auf den Bildschirm zu bringen, ohne Action-Fans durch komplizierte Details abzuschrecken. Sehr spielbar und technisch sauber gemacht, ist mir das Ganze dennoch zu hart.

Wer also ein einfaches Shoot-‘em-up-Game sucht, das viel Spaß macht, der ist mit Wings of Fury gut bedient. Zartbesaitete Naturen sollten aber vorsichtshalber probespielen.

Amiga Joker (Nov, 1989)
Die Steuerung der alten Mühle ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, auch die Bombenluken scheinen gelegentlich zu klemmen, aber das Bord-MG funktioniert immerhin einwandfrei. Läßt der Öldruck nach (Trefferanzeige), oder geht der Sprit aus, heißt es schleunigst wieder zum heimischen Flugzeugträger zurückzukehren. Das recht eintönige Spiel wird durch den betont sparsamen Einsatz von Grafik und Sound auch nicht gerade aufgebessert, der einzige Lichtblick ist die elegante Schleife, die der Flieger beim Umdrehen auf‘s himmlische Parkett zaubert. Fazit: Man fühlt sich hierhin eher strafversetzt und versieht entsprechend seinen Dienst.

Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Strongly reminiscent of budget STOS game Skystrike, with 8-bit graphics and not much to recommend it.
 
Amiga World (Nov, 1990)
It did not have enough variation to hold my attention. After a while, each new mission seems to be the same as the last: bomb the islands, strafe the Japs, sinks the ships, shoot the planes. If you are 12 or under, you might enjoy it.
 
Amiga Computing (Dec, 1990)
This is a game that attacks the central nervous system directly. It overrides all other considerations except massive doses of coffee to enable you to work nine-to-five and play six-to-eight. The control of the plane is a little difficult to get the hang of at first, but the Hellcat was a difficult plane to fly in reality anyway.
