Ambitious? Yes!
Well implemented? Occasionally!
Performance? Varied(smooth,jerky,un-playable all on same flight)
Using Fighters? terrible...rotten s.a. one freakin cockpit view..yes I know its a bomber sim, but how hard would it have been to put some more effort into the fighters?
Flying the B-17? Terrible...again, one cockpit view no readable gauges while up-front flying. No panning of head up or down???
Front end? terrible!..redundant clicking of switches just to get to a mission.
Watching the blocky 3d guys moving around? Good!
Good ole piloting\formation flying(which is a huge part of a bomber sortie)? Terrible!
Graphics? Great,good,ugly(it runs the whole spectrum)
Sound? Great,good,bad(it runs the whole spectrum)
I have a [email protected] 256mram pc-133 Geforce 2 32meg
sb-live,ATA-100 hard drive, fully tweaked and optimized.
Flying the fighters is a exercise in jerkiness!
Switching positions sometimes ok, other times terrible...
What a mixed bag this one is!
Its clunky interface and poor fighter implementation, and non-exsistant b-17 piloting will probably dictate that this wont be on my "must play today" list for long.
Man, it has potential though...It was so close to going out of the ball park, instead it just went foul!!!
