Spitfire '40
By Mirrorsoft

Published in A&B Computing 5.01

I'm not too hot with flight simulators but I love 'em! So I was prepared to have a lot of time for this latest release from Mirrorsoft which offers you the chance to fly the famous World War Two Spitfire.

It does disappoint, though. Although the plane handles well and the thrill of navigation, enemy engagement and combat is present, the game somehow doesn't quite come together. Perhaps it is because the graphics aren't quite detailed enough, perhaps it's the lack of very precise control of the plane, perhaps just that we've really seen it all before.

I'm afraid the only real simulator for me is still Aviator and I think that this will really only be of interest to those amongst you who love flying games - it's just not special enough for the massed ranks of Beeb gamesters with money burning holes in their wallets.
