Wings of Prey is een uitstekende balans tussen speelbaarheid en realisme, een joystick grand cru!

I like it how it is. It’s not an easy task to please everyone, but Wings of Prey tries to do just that and, in a lot of ways, actually manages to succeed.

Wings of Prey es un título muy recomendable. Seguro que muchos grandes aficionados al mundo de la simulación lo encuentran algo pobre sobre todo en sus niveles más bajos de dificultad, pero cumple con creces su cometido, el de sentirnos por un tiempo parte de ese conflicto aéreo. Mientras que Wings of Prey no es el simulador definitivo ni mucho menos, si que ayudará a más de uno a pasar una buena tarde a los mandos de su Spitfire o Hurricane. Existe una expansión que además nos permite ponernos en la piel de un piloto alemán, llamada Wings of the Luftwaffe que además trae cooperativo, algo que se echa de menos en este juego. En cualquier caso, Wings of Prey es una buena compra para los amantes de la aviación, de la segunda guerra mundial y de aquellos que tengan que matar el gusanillo mientras no sale el Storm of War: Battle of Britain a finales de año.

Wings of Prey is een van de weinige combat flightsims op de markt op dit moment, maar weet toch de lat flink hoger te leggen. Het onbeschrijfbare gevoel van spanning en rush dat je kunt hebben bij een goede flightsim zit er bij deze game ingeklonken. Het totaalplaatje van vette graphics, mooie omgevingen en toffe vliegactie maakt deze game tot een van de gaafste vliegsims op dit moment. Hierbij moet gezegd worden dat de multiplayer functionaliteit van de YuPlay service best nog wat werk kan gebruiken, maar dit beïnvloedt de gameplay verder niet. Ik zeg: “Stof je joystick af, want hij gaat veel werk hebben met Wings of Prey!”

Wings of Prey setzt sich etwas zwischen alle Stühle. Für ein Actionspiel kommt das Drumherum oft zu kurz, Fans von Hardcore-Simulationen werden hingegen den Anspruch der Vorgänger vermissen. Trotzdem ist der Titel eine Empfehlung für Flugzeug-Freunde, denn es mangelt nicht nur an Alternativen, die schöne Grafik und das gelungene Mittendrin-Gefühl lassent auch so manches Versäumnis beim Missions-Design vergessen.

The recent Wings of Luftwaffe pack shows Gaijin has plans for Wings of Prey. If those plans include a fresh campaign approach or tools for building new scenarios, then the future for this gorgeous, surprisingly gritty game, is magnesium-bright. If they simply intend to fatten already plump hangar and mission folders then, sadly, Wings of Prey is likely to fall out of favour faster than a plummeting Stuka.

Out Of Eight (Mar 03, 2010)
Wings of Prey has better graphics and built-in multiplayer support, but is that worth an extra $40? The easy answer is: no. All of the good features this game has were included before, except for the more robust online options. The game does look darn good, but I doubt many people who frequent flight simulations will be distracted by shiny things, at least not to the tune of $50. Wings of Prey features a fine selection of over forty aircraft, but it obviously pales in comparison to 229 flyable aircraft. The campaigns are too linear, both individual missions and the unlocking order of said missions, to be enjoyed multiple times. The lack of dynamic campaigns and pilot careers really hurts Wings of Prey in terms of replay value. That said, you do get twenty-six action-packed missions and skirmish battles, so there is some value here.

While Wings of Prey might very well appeal to the hardcore flight simulator crowd, as a casual pilot I am pretty unimpressed with it. To me it’s just another WWII plane game with no noticeable improvements (albeit reasonably good-looking graphics), incredibly difficult controls and outright insulting DRM.
