Bin eigentlich nur so der shooter oder abenteuer Fan,aber das war mal etwas zur abwechslung.. habe es kostenlos in einer Zeitung geschenkt bekommen und ich muss sagen es hat mich etwas überzeugt... spannung hält eher nicht an beim spielen... deshalb verteile ich die lvls auf unterschiedliche tage und Zeiten damit ich was zum spielen habe wenn mal alles ausgespielt ist... also ich würde es empfehlen mal so als zwischendurchspiel...

Kurzes, nettes und abwechlungsreiches Arcade-Spiel. Macht echt Spaß und Laune. Die Grafik ist recht ordentlich und die Geschwindigkeit fühl sich auch recht passend an. Das war wirklich damals eins der Ersten guten City Interactive-Spiele. Klare Empfehlung! Recht kurz, aber dafür auch sehr kompakt und kurzweilig.

What a great arcade shooter. Graphics are solid, and the mouse/keyboard control is, while a little 'floaty', absolutely adequate. Very busy skies and seas, lots of campaign in the package, and at the time of this review, on sale for 80% off?!? Superb. Worth it. Very fun, which is the entire point.

Dogfight 1942 is an arcade flight video game set in WW2 released in September 2012. It was developed and published by CI Games.

[h1] Campaign [/h1]
You play as two pilots, Whitworth, who is part of the U.K. Royal Air Force, and Harrison, who is part of the United States Air Force. Playing as both characters enables you to complete a campaign focused in the English Channel and Pacific Theatre. The campaign contains two Acts. The story is logical because missions are spread over events that happen in WW2, however, there is not much of a story because each mission has an independent narrative. I finished the story in three hours. I think that all missions were quick and not too challenging, so ultimately, it is an enjoyable experience without investing too much time into playing it.

[h1] Gameplay Mechanics [/h1]
Dogfight 1942 nails the finer details incredibly well. Flying air craft feels mostly smooth and fun. Moreover, I loved the voice acting and dialogue in the game, the characters were witty, coherent, and accents were spot on. In addition, the campaign has a nice variety of air craft that the player can use, which has different capabilities. Specifically, I particularly liked that as you progress throughout the campaign, you can try new air crafts that were developed later in the war.

My only issue when flying was the transition between Ace Mode into free-flying mode. Ace Mode allows your pilot to concentrate on following an enemy plane, which has a limited cooldown. I find that when stopping Ace Mode, it is difficult to control your plane with the mouse, sending you spinning, and quite frankly, is headache inducing. As I used Ace Mode regularly, it was a negative frequently-experienced.

[h1] Performance [/h1]
Please be aware of some major issues with the game and the relevant workarounds. When I first launched Dogfight 1942, the game would not load on my main monitor and I would receive consistently less than 5FPS. It is because I selected 'Screen One' and 'Full Screen' on the game's settings. To fix this issue, un-select 'Full Screen'. This will enable you to play on your main monitor (if you have dual) and in borderless mode, which fixed both of my issues.

Another issue I encountered, which was generally more annoying, was despite playing in borderless mode, when I alt-tab and re-enter Dogfight 1942, I cannot control the air craft and will have to re-load a save. This issue will likely never be fixed, but be aware to not alt-tab during missions.

[h1] Conclusion [/h1]
Dogfight 1942 is surprisingly an enjoyable game that features a solid campaign, fun story objectives, a nice variety of aircraft, and excellent voice acting, dialogue, and characters. I think the campaign was short, and I encountered two major technological issues; one that has a workaround and the other that is an annoyance. With this said, I recommend this game on sale as it was an enjoyable experience.

[h1] Rating [/h1]

[h1] Pros [/h1]
* Characters, dialogue, and voice acting in the campaign are all excellent
* Enjoyable flying experience
* Campaign was a fun experience.

[h1] Cons [/h1]
* Various technological issues
* Transitioning between Ace Mode into free-flying.

This game is a gem. It is an arcade flying game that is done really well. The graphics are good, the maps and detail are good. The aircraft are varied. The story is good, the campaign fun, the voice overs really good. If you get shot down you can restart from a check point which reduces the frustration. Lots of dog fighting bombing and some other interesting tasks to do during the missions. Enjoyed it a lot so far and wont mind playing on through the rest of the achievements. Really satisfies the plane nuts appetite.

Unfortunately it has no setup or support for joysticks which will irk some, it is setup to be used with an xbox 360 controller.

Co-op is available too although I havent tried it.

Just finished up this game, and it's two DLCs, in approx 5.5 hours. Not a bad rainy day game. Don't bother with it unless it's on steep discount (I wound up with a 95% coupon and got it for less than $2). The game is old (2012), and provide little challenge if played in casual mode, but it's still a fun WWII flight combat shooter. There's a glitch regarding the rendering of trees on the ground that makes one mission damn near impossible, to get around it, set your system clock to 2012. No shit. Makes little sense, but completely works. All the trees show up as horrible rectangles, but you can see where you're supposed to land at least. The game needed a good polish before it went out the doors. There's little incentive to select any plan other than the default selection on each mission. But aside from all that, again, it's a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Having known this game for a long time, I got excited to see it on the steam store for sale. I had played the heck out of this game on Xbox 360, so I naturally bought it up.
I was not disappointed. This game is NOT A REALISTIC FLIGHT SIMULATION GAME. It's not hard to see, so don't go crazy thinking it's going to be too hard. Difficulty is actually very different in range. You have easy, which is for people looking for a quick (and easy) game. On the other side we see hard, which requires you to bring out your inner ace to survive more than 2 minutes.
It's worth a try. And if you have any extra currency, the DLC are also worth buying, as they're creative in unique ways apart from the base game.
Oh, by the way, don't listen to the people with half an hour telling you that landing is hard. It's not.

It's funny that you will probably perform kamikaze more often than the Japanese did, even though you don't play as them. Yea, landing is the hardest part of the game. Other than that, it's a decent air combat game that can be played on a low-end PC.

This game is clearly marketed for fans of arcade flight sims, and in that regard, I think it does its job very well. The game play is very familiar for players like me who have played previous combat wings titles (duh). The graphics (save for buildings and bridges) are beautiful, even today. The aircraft are well modeled and behave much like their real world counterparts, besides the rockets. However, there are a few features the game has that don't make any sense whatsoever or frustrated the hell out of me, and that will be my main topic for this review.

For one, the AI for your teammates is downright inept leading to some frustration while playing the campaign. For some reason, the AI prefers to fly in random patterns when not given an order to attack or defend you. When said orders are given, the AI prefers to fly around or sometimes into enemies rather than shooting them down. I'll be honest though, this didn't annoy me too much as I'm used to doing everything by myself (come one, it's a combat wings game) and was more hilarious than frustrating. What is very frustrating is flying back to your carrier to land and accidentally destroying the whole universe. Why is this so frustrating? Because you have to restart from checkpoint. And do it all over again, just to crash...again. This wouldn't be so frustrating if the game told you that you need to press the 'x' button to lower landing gear, but it even says the landing gear deploys automatically, which is false. So if you want to avoid smashing your keyboard to bits like me, landing gear deploys with 'x'. I am still confident saying that this will annoy new players to no end. There are lots of negative reviews that only mention landing and for good reason.

Something that is absolutely nonsensical about the game is the fact that while playing on controller (the preferred way of playing the game, at least from me), you can't assign or change keys. This means that unless if you have a controller that you can physically remap keys for, such as a PDP controller, you're stuck with what the game has defaults for. These defaults are awkward and uncomfortable to use. Thankfully for me, I own a PDP controller and was able to remap keys manually. However, I still think this is unacceptable because I don't need to do this for other games in the same genre. It's like playing a console exclusive that only works on keyboard. I don't need to buy a keyboard for my controller and neither do I need to buy a controller with specific software. Another thing that I saw as being completely unnecessary was the co-op system for campaign, specifically for campaign. This was a major selling point for this game, and honestly I don't know why, aside from it being something new and different. I did try this system with a friend and realized quickly that is is not needed at all. Aside from removing some of the frustration associated with AI, co-op for campaign is redundant as you can do the same tasks alone, sometimes even better depending on your partner. I say that this only applies for campaign because in dogfight and survival, we both had a blast playing against each other or against waves and waves of AI. But besides that, I could care less about co-op.

Edit: I forgot to mention ace mode, or the 'I win' button as I like to call it. This is a button that basically wins the game for you. You only need to press the 'fire' button when using ace mode and you'll win. You don't have to use ace mode, and I highly recommend not doing so. If you can, I would even encourage you to unbind the left trigger as to never use it. However, I have noticed that when playing the campaign on easy mode (only to get the 5 stars for all difficulty levels), I noticed ace mode automatically activating when the 'fire' button is pressed. I promptly never played on easy ever again.

These are just some things that I had some trouble with or wanted to mention to anybody who's thinking about buying the game. Despite bashing it in the last two paragraphs (well, three), I still recommend this game because for an arcade experience, It was pretty solid and fun, once you get past all of its drawbacks. This review only exists to inform potential buyers about some of the game's problems. Remember that this is only my opinion and you are free to disagree and call me an idiot in the comments.

I know this is a cheap and old game but, a complete waste of time, even using a controller. You literally have to play and crash each section numerous times just to find your objectives, most of the time you don't have a clue on what your suppose to do. Just plain bad UI and slopped out game. No simple joystick support, controller is the only option, took forever to find what button to push for the landing gear (repeatedly died trying to land and had to replay the mission over and over). Spent most of my in game time googling trying to figure out what to do.

Let’s be clear: This isn’t a great war airplane fight simulator… but it is a nice time-killer.

If you are bored, feel free to give it a try.

The controls are fine, and you will enjoy destroying other planes in this aerial war.

Don’t expect too much from this game though.

Despite my preference for more realistic flight sims, I found this title surprisingly enjoyable. I like the variety of flyable aircraft, the cutscenes/killcam and the ease at which this can be played with mouse & keyboard. Sadly gameplay was limited to single player but it ran great on Win 10 for me and not too difficult to get the achievements.

fun arcade shooter, most gameplays i've seen were recorded in 'arcade mode' but if you turn on 'simulation mode' you are able to do barrel rolls etc.

MUST have an xbox-like controller.

it's just not a sim.

More arcade style than a realistic sim but none the less one of the most enjoyable WW2 plane games I've played.

Very easy to play & a decent selection of planes to replay the missions on for a different experience - easy simple & re-playable - I just wish more games were like this. If you want realism try something else - if you just want to have fun play this.

It's not awful. It runs and plays OK, but the negatives overwhelm the positives after a while. Play an Ace Combat game (AC: assault horizon was similar to this game and better), or a space flight game (e.g., Everspace, House of the Dying Sun, Strike Suit Zero, Tie Fighter, etc.) for a better experience overall.

I would ONLY recommend this game to those desperate for another flight combat game. This one is short, clunky, dated, and frustrating at times.

It's a fun arcade flight game, no more, no less. If you want to play with a controller on your couch and just have fun, you can. If you want dozens and dozens of keys assigned to details like mixture, prop control, etc., this is not the game you're looking for. Not a steep learning curve; Quick and easy and enjoyable.

IMHO this could be the one of the best games out there for this gen; BUT the controls are 'hanky' at best and unable to change many of the controls. The view is not the best and VERY touchy! I usually NEVER reference another game in a review, but they need controls more like World of Warplanes. If these things were to be present I would not have a complain about this game at all. The missions seem very good and I was excited to get it at the price I did. With that said.. i find myself fighting against overly sensitive controls, lacking in 'how to do things' and overall disappointed in the way to operate/control/order wing men in this game. There is nothing to tell you how to offer orders and even the 'Trial by Fire' supposed tutorial is lacking in what to do. Even after my first time finishing the mission and being told to return to base there was nothing to tell you what to do (much less how to land). I flew over the base a few times before I figured I had to land and then left to crashing several time to figure out. Over all I found that I was happy I got the game so cheap and not sure if I will play much more. Even with the extreme wait time and having to deal with 'pay for superiority' play on World or Warplanes... I find I would rather deal with a chance on being able to control than the the controls this game offers. It makes me sad ... very sad... to leave this review and wonder if my expectations were to high at the price I paid. Great game with mechanical flaws NEVER addressed imho.

wish i'd bothered to recognise that critical deficiency before i wasted (thankfully not a lot of) money

i like some brainless carnage as much as the next pilot, but not if i can't fly an aeroplane with the regular method of control - ww2 didn't have planes with game pads
