Daniel Weissenberger's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Language, Violence

Parents should be careful with this game. The violence is bloodless and historical in context, but there's one disturbing element—there are no parachutes in the game. Meaning that no one ever bails out, and every enemy plane killed results in just that. It's a minor detail, but could be a little unsettling if your children are familiar at all with mid-century aerial combat. And really, why shouldn't they be?

World War II Nerds might be interested in giving this a whirl, as it contains a wide variety of historically-accurate aircraft, as well as a few of those prototype nazi jets.

Online Gamers looking to dogfight against real people rather than AI algorithms are in luck, the game has an online mode. It's no Crimson Skies, but it's not bad.

People sensitive about racism might want to avoid the title. All of the enemy pilot's speech is audible for some reason, and instead of being in foreign languages and subtitled, it's presented by people speaking English in amazingly racist accents.

Deaf and hard of hearing gamers should be fine—you're missing out on some wonderful sound design, but no key gameplay elements. might be interested in giving this a whirl, as it contains a wide variety of historically-accurate aircraft, as well as a few of those prototype nazi jets.
