What did they do?
The game is unbalanced and inaccurate when it comes to the aircraft abilities. I know, its just a game but I would like to see a little more realism.
The newest update turned the jets into paper targets and it seems like a BB gun would blow them out of the sky. The new P-47 has become the star of the game because it has the turning radius of the IAR80 and the Japanese Zero. Seriously a P-47 out perfoming a P-51??????? The P47 is also built like a tank in the game so I caution going head to head with it. While they may have cleaned up some bugs it seems like a few have now been added. I tend to see more players “Warping” across the map than before the last update.
To the developers, how about giving a set value that the user can control and apply as they see fit to engine, armor, aerodynamics, etc. This way I can give 25 to engine, 30 to aerodynamics, 30 to armor, and 15 to armament = 100 points. The ability to customize the planes would level the playing field depending on the mission. The greatest part of this game is player to customize his plane but its still just cosmetic at this point.
Big bang for your buck!
I love war games, especially WWIi war games so naturally this one caught my attention. I was rather sceptical of buying it at first but for such a low price what could I lose? I tried it yesturday and have not stopped playing except for school and food. Really fun, keeps you engaged. The thing I really enjoy so far is the campaign. You get to play as American, Japanese, British and German pilots! There are only 3 campaign objectives but here are 6 or 7 in each, Battle For Britian was my favorite. There is also singleplayer modes like capture the flag, team death match and defend the base, all of which are very fun and keep you interested. For the price the graphics are great! If the game was $30 instead of $5 I would stil buy it in a heartbeat! If you enjoy historical aircraft and war games this is the one for you! Runs great with 0 lag and decent graphics.
Almost, But Not Quite There Yet
This game is a blast to play and is easily the best World War II era fighter plane game on the market! The price is reasonable as well.
As far as further game development goes I would like to see some more campaigns and missions as well as some more aircraft. Two aircraft that are surprisingly missing from the game are the American Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bomber and American Grumman TBF/TBM Avenger torpedo bomber. Both of these aircraft were essential to the U.S. Navy’s effort in the Pacific Theater and I am surprised that they have not been added yet. (Some other aircraft would be the P-61 Black Widow, the Hawker Typhoon, the Bristol Beaufighter, the Kawasaki Ki-61, or the Nakajima B6N)
As far as gameplay goes I would have to aggree with the post by Scout19D19D. The P-47 is really too much like the P-51 which is not historically accurate at all. Although it was good, it still wasn’t as good as a P-51. It’s best roll was close air support, so this plane should replace the Corsair in the “Tank Buster” Mission (the Corsair was never a part of the European Theater of operations anyway). Having the ability to customize more of the aircraft’s ability would be great as well!
The game really is good and the graffics of course are impresive to say the least. My comments are more “details” to be tweeked to make it better.
Thank you to the developers for their ingenuity and hard work!
