War Birds: WW2 Air strike 1942 reviews and comments

War birds: WW2 air strike 1942 war birds is a good game. You are at the command of an airplane and you will have to perform various missions during the 2nd World War on the European front. With the money earned, you will be able to buy ammunition, fuel but also tool boxes to repair your airplane when necessary. You will also be able to purchase parts to improve your airplane or, if you are very wealthy, acquire a new airplane. The more you advance in the game, the more level your driver climbs and the more you have the ability to unlock new skills. It is a good little independent game with an ultra nice price. If you like historical games and especially on World War 2, it is for you! To read all of my impressions on war birds: WW2 air strike 1942. [www.graal.fr]

War Birds: WW2 Air Strike 1942 I bought just €1.99 as Part of Steam SummerSales 2016. It was clear to me that you can't expect a Masterpiece at such a Price, but I was just Looking for a Casual Game anyway-just like that In between. Unfortunately, this Game is absolutely not a Recommendation, not even for this Prize. The Main Criticisms are simple: Catastrophic control, especially when it comes To fighting ground targets lousy graphics Bad Mission-design. For example, you have to play Missions several times in a row to have enough money together to get the next thing To be able to buy higher-quality Aircraft. Panzers on the Ground in particular are difficult to fight with the MG on the Starting Plane. I wanted a Game for in between, not a Game where you have to work your way up agonisingly through Replays. :/ Thumbs down!

Thanks Otaku for the key. This a cheap and very entertaining game. You are a pilot, in the middle of the Occupied Europe, in the apogee of the "World War 2" First think you have to do is: Choose your fighter. The first one you can afford is not a "Wild Cat". or a "Spitfire", but you can start, with the money the government gave to you, to prepare your plane for war. So go to the shop, and buy some ammunition, petrol, and a few defensive perks, cause you will need it for the first deployment. Once your plane is prepare to take off. Click on the debrief, to check which are your orders. Then click on the map, one country will be spotted. Then take off. Movement with keyboard and mouse, is not too complicated, but you can redefine your keys in the config screen from the beginning. You can use a fighter joystic too. If you have it. Once you are defeating the air and ground enemies, across Europe. You´ll be promoted to more complicated missions, so you'll have to go to the shop, to buy new upgrades to your plane, like rockets,bombs,new perks, and if you have been good pilot, a new and powerfull plane. So don't hesitate to check this game, now is on his first days of life, and is on sale. See you later.
