Obviously reviews are very passionate affairs, but what many appear to lose is any sense of objectivity or restraint, often having hidden agendas underneath their so-called 3-line reviews... So here's an impartial one...
I'm not the biggest fan of WW2 or flight sims in general, but I remember playing the demo and really enjoying it, the graphics are not 'spectacular' - but they're far from unimpressive, and when the rain is coming down and you have a plane in your sights and your flying around, who cares about the detail of the trees? It's the overall experience that counts, and I believe they do a good job.
In terms of gameplay, there's loads of variety, and this is one of the game's biggest strengths - there's plenty to do, and as you go you upgrade your plan, weapons, etc. - something that's surprisingly deep and maintains interest. There's also multiplayer to contend with, and although it can be difficult to find a room, when you do, it's really great fun.
Sound, again, really fun voice-overs, it doesn't take itself too seriously, great dramatic music and good ratatatatata gun sounds, what more do you want?
Finally value for money - £14.99 - for this price it's a steal especially when in most high-street stores this is still retailing for £35+
Bearing in mind that there are few / no flight sim games on the PS3 as of yet, any fan this genre should pick this up, anyone wanting to dip into a fun storyline with fun aerial dogfights and play something a little different will do well to give this one a go. Yes it's not 'perfect' - but it's far from disaster some will have you believe. And again try before you buy - get the demo from the PS3 store and give it a go!
