I have always been surprised by the speed with which certain gamers heap criticism on games. It's a cut-throat business, but sometimes when I read reviews, I get the impression that 9 out of 10 games must be absolute rubbish. Obviously this is not the case......
Moving onto the game itself.
I thought the graphics for a game of this nature were quite good. The planes are depicted in detail and the colourations and designs are impressive. I will admit that ground troops and vehicles sometimes lack detail, but this is not really that important when playing the game.
There are not that many flying games on the PS3, so you could argue that there is not much to compare it to. But having said that, the missions are varied and reasonably well thought out. There are bombing missions, air-to-air missions, torpedoing destroyer missions, flying in very small corridors/passages etc etc. I can't fault it for variety.
And with this variety comes fun. I've loved playing the game. From selecting the plane I want for the mission, to changing its colours and designs, to the actualy flying itself..... I was hooked.
I recomend this to those that want to have fun behind the controls of a Spitfire of Messerschmit. You won't regret it. And if you're not sure, you could always rent it for the night.
A huge plus, is that this game is co-op, so if you want to play split screen with a mate, you can. That's even more fun than it sounds....
