Product Description

Wings Of Prey

Wings Of Prey is based around the large-scale aerial combat and ground military operations of World War II. Players can participate in some of the war's most famous battles piloting fighters, battle planes and bombers across a range of thrilling missions.

There are six theatres of war to engage in: The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Ardennes, Berlin, Sicily and Korsun, representing the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe. Wings of Prey also boasts an all new damage effects engine as well as advanced environmental visuals enriching the game play. Wings Of Prey features hundreds of airplanes taking part in air battles. The unique environmental engine also produces highly detailed, realistic landscapes that allow players to see breathtaking ground support actions.

Wings Of Luftwaffe

In Wings of Luftwaffe, the player takes the role of a German pilot and participates in explosive battles over Britain, Sicily, the USSR, Belgium and Germany. From blocking airdromes, to attacking aircraft, to destroying ground targets, the player will fight with honor and bravery for the glory of Germany. These new missions allow virtual pilots to see the war from the enemy's point of view and try out some of the most advanced fighters of the era.

This expansion will feature ten single missions with support for up to four players in co-op mode, two new planes and over 40 skins for the various planes.

Air combat fans will enjoy strapping into one of the game's many planes and seeing the Second World War through the eyes of a German pilot. Wings of Luftwaffe puts players in the heat of battle and creates an experience so lifelike, players will feel their padded seat yield to their weight as they evade the attacks of their enemies. Wings of Luftwaffe offers a chance to experience first hand the desperate fight in the skies over Europe during World War II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best WW2 Combat Flight Sim Available On Earth! 10 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game really is the best WW2 combat flight sim around today. The single player and multiplayer modes are excellent.
Ignore the warnings about the DRM - it's fine. The only game that can rival this is the forthcoming 'World of Planes' being made by the same team.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a great amoung Flight Sims 3 Nov 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Graphically i think this game is great. There are a huge number of aircraft and the differences are noticable. The campaign may be short but go into single missions and see there are loads to keep you occupied. Theres also a hanger mode and useful encyclopedia with tips.
As per other reviews the ground scenary is stunning. Flying in cockpit gets you some great effect such as rain and oil. The game is pre programmed and came be custimosed well with a Thrustmaster Hotas X.
Sounds are ok, althought the commands are repetative. The key thing for me that makes this a must have is that you get the occasional epic moment in combat. A lot of flight sims will not see you able to fly behind other fighters and shoot them down, where as the physics of this one- the speed, enemy AI atc are such that you can get relaistic dog fights and of course with a target camera (which keeps your view on the enmy selected so you can orientate yourself to them), you get some stunning visuals.

The only negatives/let downs are quite dull combat at times. Getting into a fight or within range of another aircraft can take too much time. They ruined the play with the stall feature and having to use the boost to pul of practically any manouver. This for me makes playing at realistic or simulation unenjoable. Further to this its a shame you cant add the black out effects and other more relaistic modes to the arcade setting.

All in all this works well with lots of options (the training feature where you customize your own battles will keep you entertained indefinately), without silly modern slo mo style gaming makes this a must have Flight Sim.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention Flight! 27 Nov 2012
Thank u Gaijin and before them: UBISOFT, for bringing a 1st rate combat flight sim to HDTV via the PC... :D
Coolest Flight Sim i've ever played! The control scheme for this game is unparalleled, using Direct X and support for Xbox 360 controllers (including the HORI Flight Stick EX2!!!), add a Saitek Combat or Pro-Flight Rudder system, and right hand mouse support for anything other than controlling the hyper-realistic aircraft, this game is nearly perfect...

When maxing out the graphics at 1920 x 1080p on a 40 inch Sharp 3D/HDTV, and using a second monitor for background apps like XPADDER to make sure settings are desirable, like map toggle (as opposed to map hold), and mimicking the mouse by using the view stick (hat switch) to pan around without dodging back to the center, XPADDER has been the key to enjoying this game on the PC with all my favourite peripherals connected...

I actually have this game for Xbox 360, released before WOP as IL2: Birds of Prey, and is quite fun, yet no Rudder support made buying this version a no-brainer. The graphics in this version are also better, as well as advanced physics; dew drops inside the clouds, cloud texture, takeoffs, and ground scenery, every way an improvement over the console cousin... I just wished they would have offered an add-on for Wings of Steel: the console version of the Pacific WW2 Flight Sim by the same developer - Gaijin! :D

One thing not quite up to par, the engine sounds are not that different from each other, yet in the console version they are, such as a Messerschmitt ME/BF 109 whining out at full RPM (called WEP) with a distinct German engineered sound. I love this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great game. 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I have played this game a lot. What I am missing is on line team playing. The best flying game ever, was already retired game “Fighter Ace”.

Anyway, if you are an “Airman” then there is a lot of fun just waiting for you.
