Ever wondered what itís like to fly the
birds of prey from World War II without the trials and tribulations
of combat? Well my dear gamer, you have come to the right place as
Wings of Power just lets you do that as you climb into one of these
remarkable historic planes.
With that said, Wings of Power allows
players to jump into the seat of a plethora of different military
planes from the era of World War II. Not only will players feel the
realism of these planes but will also offer the gamer realistic
gameplay that is truly a real-world reenactment of what these
graceful planes may actually feel like. To make things even more
interesting, Wings of Power is based on the powerful Flight
Simulator 2004 engine that features realistic gameplay and amazing

The latest wind-tunnel technology
helped the developer to create for the most authentic, fluid
flying qualities, including complex spins and stalls.

So for those out there that live
for realism and depth, Wings of Power delivers on a scale never
seen before! However, even with all of this tremendous detail,
you can still just throw the throttle forward and fly away...
In Wings of Power, gamers have access
to some of the greats which indlue the B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24
Liberator, the B-29A Superfortress, the PB4Y-2 Privateer , the
Lancaster BIII, and the jet-powered Ar-234B2 Blitz Bomber. A few
German jet fighters are also included such as the Heinkel HE-162
Salamander and the Focke-Wulf Ta-183 Huckebein which are thrown in
for good measure.
The developers also make a bold claim
that many of the pages in this huge 160-page manual are actually
taken directly from the original plane manuals and match that with a
variety of historically accurate information such as diagrams,
flight data and other information and you have one professionally
made flight sim.
The control system of Wings of Power
uses a variety of different input devices such as the mouse,
keyboard, flight stick or a game pad, depending on what the gamer
has available. I must admit that the control system is easily one of
the most realistic flight experience that this gamer has seen.
Feeling the bumps of turbulence, the nerve racking landings or being
blinded by the sun or clouds, the gameplay of Wings of Power nicely
melds with these historically accurate planes from World War II.
Graphically, Wings of Power is an
amazing game that contains realistic 2D and 3D cockpits that contain
every button, switch, lever and other components which are modelled
perfectly. Unlike many other flight sims, the cockpits in this game
are extremely interactive.
However, with the use of the Flight
Simulator 2004 engine, it allows for spectacular visuals and
impeccable flight modelling that features amazing backgrounds,
realistic planes and some beautiful background scenery to truly
immerse you into this amazing world.
In conclusion Wings of Power is
strictly for flight enthusiasts who do not wish to have the hassle
of combat, even so, the game is perfect and is one of the most
realistic flight simulators on the market at the moment.
