Game resets after an upgrade

:
I don't recommend buying this one because I had completed all the missions and purchased all the planes and when it upgraded the game from free upgrades I lost everything....NOT COOL. And besides that noone ever contacted me about fixing the problem. what a ripoff!!!

5/5 stars
Moneys worth

:
Great game guy I realy truly think this is the best game in the app store but I paid $6.99 for the game and bought all the in app purchases but it's kinda a short campaign and it needs more planes I mean the free version had more planes than the paid app but over all a great game.!!!!

2/5 stars
Promising, but...

:
This otherwise quite promising air combat sim is let down by poor flight controls and quirky, if not downright unbelievable enemy AI.

Expect to spend most of your time in combat trying to work out how to get your plane to turn, or why the enemy is gyrating wildly upside down, or doing any of a variety of improbable things. When you're not wondering why you can maintain a knife-edge attitude without turning, you can spare a moment's thought for how the throttle has a mind of it's own, apparently slipping backwards every time you try to climb (engine speed slows as you approach a stall... really).

The placement of the triggers next to the rudder pedals means that you need two fingers on the screen on either side to both steer (because you can't maintain a decent turn rate without using unrealistic amounts of rudder, or slew to aim for that matter) and shoot. Or resign yourself to not being able to use your weapon of choice due to needing that thumb to aim...

Common combat maneuvers (boom-n-zoom, turnfighting, even Immelmann turns) feel much too difficult to pull off. Most dogfighting seems to rapidly sink down to ground level, where you will spend a lot of time trying not to snap-roll into the ground while turning to try to find your target.

Situational awareness is hard to maintain; the mini-radar doesn't give you much to go on, and due to the AI's squirrelly flight behavior, you can't even make reasonable assumptions about enemy aircraft's flight patterns. Unless you take a hand off to tap the camera button, you have no peripheral vision.

All in all it's a fairly good-looking, simple flight simulator, some promising mission content and a disappointing aerial combat experience.
