War Eagles description

Good "retravailler", dedicated to the air battles of the First world war. The game includes two campaigns (mission not linked) – for English and German pilot, both are available for transmission from the beginning of the game.

Game for the English pilot includes five missions: patrol, escort, attack on the airship (protected), duel with the German ACE and the most difficult of all, the "Nest of hornets", when you have to fight one at once with a squadron (!) enemy planes. German missions in General similar, however, the attack on the airship is replaced by the mission for its protection. No "career" in the game there – just rambling tasks.

Graphically, the game looks good for the simulator (but only in EGA mode), the dynamics of the fighting is present (though here it can be seen as a drawback, because the aircraft of the last century so fly obviously could not). Mission "the Hornet's Nest" is a phenomenal complexity (it is said that not many people were able to defeat her), so tune in to it immediately. Verdict – not a hit, but firmly made and nice looking simulator, definitely of interest to fans of the genre.
