Gambler (Dec, 1993)
Jeśli masz ważną randkę, to nie staraj się, nawet na chwilę włączyć komputera. To może się źle skończyć dla Twojej znajomości. Ta gra naprawdę wciąga. Całość jest mocno umieszczona w realiach historycznych.
PC Format (UK) (Dec, 1995)
Like B-17, Knights of the Sky is now so old you have to brush away the cobwebs before you can play. Prior to Dawn Patrol and Wings of Glory, this was the definitive World War One flight sim, worth playing for its multi-player options alone. Great fun if you've got a machine slow enough to run it.
A World War I flight simulator whose greatest strength is the modem play option. While CGW gave it a rating of primus inter pares, this reviewer found the inability to fly on the German side, the graphic representation of "cloud cover," and flight models/damage to be less than optimal. Still a fine game, which suffers only by comparison to Red Baron
Power Play (Feb, 1991)
Freunde von handfesten Simulationsprogrammen können im Moment wahrlich nicht klagen. Kaum ein Monat vergeht, ohne daß ein neuer Vertreter dieses Genres das Licht der Computermonitore erblickt. So auch "Knights of the Sky", der neuste Flugsimulationsstreich von Microprose.
Von der reizvollen Idee, auch mal die Mühlen aus dem ersten Weltkrieg durch die Lüfte zu bewegen, war ich zuerst sehr begeistert, steige jetzt jedoch lieber wieder in einen Flieger moderneren Datums ein, um auf die Jagd nach dem bösen Feind zu gehen.
Jeff Briggs has done a good job of making WWI air combat live and breathe for us. The modem play feature is particularly appreciated. This game is a must for WWI fans and flight simulation fans.
