- B-17 flying fortress -

There have been many flight simulators released since the beginning of the computer games era so after a while you'll have to come up with something new to please the fans. Most simulators focus on the latest and greatest fighter jets but this game not only takes you back to WW2 but it also puts you in a B-17 flying fortress. The B-17 is not a fighter but a bomber and it has room for a crew of ten so there will be plenty to do while you're in the air.

The simulation lets you control any of the positions that are on the B-17 so not only can you pilot the aircraft but you can take the position of one of the many gunners and ofcourse the bomber. This makes any mission frantic as you try and balance your time between all the different positions. But not only is it difficult during a mission you'll have to do all the 'normal' things like taking off and landing a damaged bomber and trust me you will be damaged. Each mission will usually involve bombing a specific target and if you are not able there is also a secondary target for you to bomb. Each target will be scouted and you can view a small video to show you what the target and it's surroundings are like.

B-17 flying fortress is not very different from other simulators when it comes to it but the plane itself is so it automatically makes for a different experience than most other games. The fact that you can control up to ten different positions in the plane makes for a frantic game at times and both the learning curve and the difficulty level of the game is quite high. That make the game more suited towards flightsim enthousiasts but they will most definately get a challenge out of this game.

Overal rating: 7/10
