Dogfight 1942 is one of those flying games where you simply gun down your enemies out of the air. It has a wide range of aircrafts and a nice arcady feeling over it. The overall look of the game is charming, as it's not realistic but has a bit of a animated look to it. Next to the very small bugs at times, its a great game and worth a pick up!
Simple, fun, but a few minor flawson2wheels | July 1, 2013 | See all on2wheels's reviews »
First off let me say it was fun to fly around in an old WW2 plane and there's quite a variety of them to use. They made flying so easy, it's not like a simulator at all, which is nice for casual gamers like me. They also added this neat feature where it quick zooms your sights on the nearest targetted enemy, which makes it even easier to shoot them down, and the nice thing is you don't have to use it if you don't want to.
Visuals are actually quite good too, though I did have times where it ran real laggy, as some of the posts in the steam forums talk about, but strangely enough, restarting steam or rebooting my pc fixed it, Nvidia 560Ti. And I probably need a format by now anyway.
The only major gripe I have is with one mission where you have to land a plane on grass to pass a mission. They don't tell you exactly how to do it, so it took me many tries to learn where to put the plane. After nearly throwing my mouse at the screen, I finished the game easily after that, and it is kind of short without the DLC. Only 2 Acts. So I'd get the DLC if you really want something near a full experience.

City Interactive has created a game that lets anyone start down enemy planes within no time. Gameplay uncomplicated, intuitive and extremely simple controls and cool graphics make it attractive to a wide range of jogadores.Conclusão Dogfight 1942 is a flight combat title aimed at those who like something fast and uncompromising. However, their superficiality and short campaign does not justify its price (and realize that this is not an expensive game). The game could count on missions more varied and long, and a higher level of difficulty, because then it would become more atrativo.Um the coolest elements of Dogfight 1942 is the "Ace Mode", which the player can activate during aerial hunting. This feature means that automates many aspects of the already extremely simple controls of the plane. It's like a sort of "autopilot combat" was placed in service: your plane automatically chase a target (this can be changed, of course), and you will then have to take care only of sight, the selection of weapons and of shots. The sequence of missions that is offered to us has great moments, of course, but there is nothing to connect the player to the game so strong. There are sufficient for us to feel comfortable playing the campaign again. City Interactive oversimplified things: simplification should have just stayed at the controls. Even the presence of an online multiplayer mode could have done very well to the game. Not that the game is not fun: it is. But we get a very strong feeling that he could be much, much better. Do not wait for news. Maybe next.

This game is very real in fighting and authenticity. It reminds me of World of warplanes, but a little scaled down. The graphics are amazing and i can play with a constant fps. The sound is one of the things i have ever heard in any plane game. You can hear the bullets ripping through wings of other planes and the sound of ships burning and getting pounded by planes. There are a lot of missions to play and you will not get bored of this game for sure.
I would recommend this game to those who want to try out a fun dog fighting game
