Excellent mission-oriented WWI game. Very EZ to play. Fun. Viel Spass. I rate it at 4.9 stars.

My only beef with it (which is why I couldn’t give it a full-throttled “5”) is that my plane’s water reflection is not dark enough so I can’t tell how near I am to the water, which is especially frustrating on campaign mission #14, Das Boot. C’mon, developers, a little more contrast, please?!

Very Realistic!

I don't usually write app reviews but the creators of this app put so much time into the story of this game! They must have had to do a lot of research to accurately depict the events you go through during the missions. Very well done story in my opinion.



Perfect game + graphics:) !!!
