5.0 out of 5 stars The best WW2 Simulator Ever!!!!! 27 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played most of of the World War 2 simulators on the market i.e Call of Duty, Medal of Honour and so on, and I can safely say that you will never have as much fun on a games console as you will on Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WW2.

It took me a while to get past the tutorial level but that may have been because I found the Nunchuck hard to control but i soon realised that you can change what you use control the plane and I now use the wii remote.

You quickly develop a virtual relationship with your Squadron as you journey through World War 2 in a plane of the era that you are currently in at that point in the game including Spitfires and Hurricanes. The best battle is easily the battle of Britain simply because it provides such a diverse range of gameplay and excitement. This is helped by the fact that you can command your squadron to Attack, Form up on you, defend and each member of you squadron has a different ability which is very useful when you have one plane tagging you that you can't catch and shoot down.

You get immense amusement from listenin to the witty banter amongst your squadrons and the allied forces. You also get to hear German and Japanese communications between their planes.

It does get harder as you proceed through the game but you are encouraged by the rating you get at the end of each mission and an overwhelming urge to fly the planes you have just unlocked.

Multiplayer mode is exceptional with a complete range of missions, some in co-op and some head on. You can choose to duel with the other player or join them as you enter a Dogfight with countless numbers of enemies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scramble, Scramble, Scramble 14 May 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good solid game. The controls (which are configurable) are quite arcade like and not exactly an accurate simulation of flying. Nevertheless, the game is enjoyable. As with any American produced WWII game the dialogue and scene setting are very Americanised, and do lack a little in accuracy. I'm not sure how many American pilots were flying for the RAF in 1939, but I doubt it was very many.

Back to the game, the range of aircraft is good, there is not always much to choose between them in terms of aerodynamics and speed, but you certainly feel the difference in firepower. If anyone has played the excellent Secret Weapons over Normandy on the Xbox or PS2, they will see certain similarities here. Secret Weapons was superior in the storyline and dialogue, but being able to use the Wii's controls lends Angels a unique flying experience. This is what makes the game so good.

The missions are not terribly challenging, and to be honest they don't take too many attempts to complete, but there are lots of missions, so there is a good degree of longevity with the game.

Overall, I would certainly recommend it. It's not a sophisticated flight simulator, but it is jolly good fun! Tally-Ho Alge!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy but enjoyable Arcade Flyer 9 April 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Initially it takes a while to get the hang of the controls, but the first (training) mission helps enormously, then the control method goes on to become really good fun (selectable between Wii-Remote/Nunchuck motion sensors or just standard analogue/button controllers).

However, the story line for the on-going missions is pure cheese!

If you can get over The Sun(esque) glorification/sensationalism of history then everyone can enjoy the game for what it is, a very entertaining game that plays very well.

Still not tried the head to head yet (only split-screen and not LAN/WiFi), but if it's as good as the main game then it'll probably cause a lot of RSI as you tend to have to rotate/roll your wrists a lot when using the motion-sensors control method.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but some motion sensing problems 10 April 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed this game a lot. The level difficulties are well pitched and both the dogfights and the bombings are very satisfying when done right. The campaign mode is fairly short, but after that there is a lot to perfect and do after finishing the main story.

The actual "game" aspect is good fun and there's plenty of it.

But now I come to the bad bit. When I first started on the first mission every thing started well and I completed it fairly easily. But by the time I got to the London mission I really noticed something wrong. When I selected the wiimote only sensitivity (you hold it on its side, like the racing games) and you turn it too far the the plane breifly goes out of control, allowing the tailing enemy plane to shoot you down. Having said that the game rarely puts you in a crucial situation so it doesn't effect you much.

All in all a good game, but it could be better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Challenging but Enjoyable 14 Nov 2007
By C. Green TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first thing to point out about Blazing Angels on the Wii is that it has not been developed specifically for Nintendo's platform. This means that whilst the controls do make use of the Wii's wireless motion detector interface, the manner in which they do so is not perfect. In fact after trying various options I found that the best way to play the game is with a combination of the Wii controller in motion sensitive mode to 'fly' the plane, and the nunchuck to control weapons and speed.

So if you are looking for a flight simulator that makes the most use of the Wii's unique features Blazing Angels is not that game. It tries hard but still falls short.

That being said, it is still a fun game. Placing you in the role of a WWII fighter pilot (American, but then you can't have everything) it offers you a variety of gaming options, from campaigns that combine aerial combat and bombing missions to straight arcade style dogfights.

Being on the Wii the graphics certainly aren't photorealistic, but their good enough for this sort of game, and the controls are intuitive enough to be easy to master. Actually mastering the game on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. This is certainly no push over, and it takes some practice in the air to get anywhere in either the campaign or arcade options.

Still, practising is half the fun, and there is a real feeling of reward when you do finally master a manouver and blast your target out of the sky. And who doesn't enjoy blasting enemy planes out of the sky. For that thrill alone this is worth the money.

Are there any real niggles. Well, the constant 'chat' from your wingmen gets pretty trying, but you can turn them off so that's just a minor whinge.
