Performance: I run the game on medium settings without antialies on my 3750 dualcore and ati with 256mb. I have a lot of background services so it's much slower than usual.

Game feeling: fantastic. I loved plane simulations and there is really a great feeling. Tutorials are great, handling with mouse is nice, although joystick would provide that edge.

Combat is chaotic. I had just one game but all of tutorials and it will take some time to get what is happening on the battlefield. As I understand I can either fight fighters or destroy land vehicles. And there is AA so it's not an easy task :D I like the choice.

I hope I will get some time in the evening. Can't wait for them to add tanks and naval ships. Overall, I am very impressed with the engine and handling.

Looks great, one that really stood out was the terrain quality of those hills and n
how realistic it looks.

I had first planes and ground vehicles shot down and got a grip of the fight. All planes from hangar but same country can be used in a single battle - once downed, you get fly next.

There are custom missions for bombing raids, free flights, escorts and intercepts... really adds to variety to the game. I don't have unlocked much as I'm still tier one.

Unfortunately I won't be joining you any time soon. My computer failed the "run test" at Can you run it? I am just below the fail line. :cry:

Looks like Secret Weapons Over Normandy but for the CPU and with better graphics. I wouldn't play it for one reason, its on the computer. I like a good console game best, with a dualshock 2 controller. If I were more into playing on computers I'd jump at it though. Thanks for the review sismis, I enjoyed it.
