Ace Of Aces

This was an interesting game - US Gold's only attempt, since MicroProse went off by itself, to enter the potentially lucrative flight sim market. The fact that we've never seen anything similar from the Brum giant rather indicates that this was not a massive commercial success, but for all that it's not a bad attempt. Ace Of Aces takes you into World War 2 as the pilot of a Mosquito (bzzzzzzzzzzzzz - SLAP!), downing Nazi bombers, outrunning Y-1 rockets and generally having a stiff upper lip. Corky!

Though this is not, I think, quite up to MicroProse's peerless Standards, it's certainly more than just a shoot-'em-up, and provides more than a couple of minutes' challenge for flighty chaps like Biffo and Storker. More importantly, it's just about the only decent flight sim on the market at £1.99, and for that we should be thankful. Chocks away, Smudger!
