Wings The Game

Wings, a very aptly named game. The first thing to do after you create your pilot is earn your wings, and for that, you get randomly assigned a test out of one of the three flying modes.

Firstly:  There’s first person 3D combat. The aim of the training mission being to destroy an observation balloon before another pilot hoping for his wings.

Secondly:  There’s the isometric strafing. Just strafe three sets of oil cans.

Thirdly:  Is birds-eye view bombing, where the aim is to destroy two buildings.

After that, there’s the campaign, where as well as following the journal that you keep, that acts as the story, you fly missions of the various types, gradually getting harder.

Wings, is it Naff?

Simply put… No!  The graphics, for the time are really good. The sounds are good, the music great.  If you are looking for a realistic flight simulator then this isn’t the game for you. It is in no way a simulator but it is great fun.  There’s no flying around all over just to find something to do, You’re straight into the action.  It’s a great game, one that I highly recommend.
