“Practically nipping at the heels of Il-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, Transmission Games’ Heroes Over Europe completely does away with any attempts to provide a realistic flight combat simulation experience like its competition and instead hones-in on the guns-blazing, full throttle arcade action that’s already fairly commonplace in the genre. Some players may prefer to embrace simplicity and enjoy focusing on being in the moment while sending entire squadrons of bombers and fighters planes plummeting in a fiery demise. Heroes Over Europe certainly has all of that and more, but it’s rough around the edges in more than a few areas.”
“Hardcore fighter jockeys might actually be tempted to venture from their PCs for a change to check out how IL-2 Sturmovik fares on consoles. In terms of handling and authenticity, they won’t be disappointed. Birds of Prey’s scalable flight realism can be toned down for newcomers seeking the arcade-like flying experience found in other flying games or kicked up to insane levels for serious couch pilots seeking a steep challenge. The gameplay itself is also quite strong, though the overall package feels a little skimpy once you’ve plowed through it.”

“Imagine living in a society so accustomed to war that its citizens simply can’t cope with not killing each other en-masse for any extended period of time. Unsettled by lasting peace, the restless populace in The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces craves constant bloodshed, smoldering wreckage, and destruction. Hopping into the cockpit for a test-run of Project Aces’ upcoming anime aerial combat sim, we gave the people what they asked for.”
