Review
We haven’t received to many World War II air combat simulators in the past so when Jane’s Attack Squadron arrived just the other day it certainly peaked my interest. The graphics are terrific with 14 beautifully textured aircrafts and backgrounds that make you think you are more then reenacting the deadliest sky battles of World War II.

The one area of the game that I felt was lacking as compared to the other areas is the games controls. There are just to many different options that it would take you days just to memorize all the controls. Long gone are the days of my simple 8-bit Nintendo control that consisted of 2 buttons, a directional pad, and start/select button.

All in all it’s a pretty good game. Just make sure you have time to sit down and go through the games Manuel first.
