There’s something new in the air, and it’s more than the hum of hundreds of aero engines... As the Luftwaffe launches its aerial offensive, the outnumbered Royal Air Force is scrambling to bring into combat new planes that will ensure victory over a stronger foe. Will they succeed? It’s up to you, and your Hurricane or Spitfire. If you hold off the enemy long enough, you’ll be the first to fly the Hawker Tornado and Westland Whirlwind into combat, and enable the Empire to strike back before Reichsmarschall Goering finishes his breakfast. You’ll be rewarded with bonus missions, promotions, decorations, and a view of burning Berlin from the tail turret of a Halifax bomber.
Join in the new Battle of Britain. Your aircraft is ready and waiting...

I got this game on sale for $1.24, and obviously my expectations were pretty low. But after just a few short minutes of playing, and experiencing a full scale dogfight, I quickly realized this game has more to it than meets the eye.
It's not the most polished game, and the physics probably aren't totally accurate, but it will provide many hours of fun gameplay, and it's the best bang for your buck if you're looking for a WWII flying game.

This low-cost combat flyer is a blast. The controls are smooth and intuitive and this lets you concentrate on flying and shooting instead of what buttons you need to press. In particular, the game makes such great use of the mouse that I'm not even tempted to try it with other controllers. Graphically, the game would have been mediocre even by the standards of 5 years before it came out. It can't be said to be a pretty game. But it plays so well, that I honestly don't care.

This game is a lot of fun whether you play singleplayer or multiplayer, dog fights in the air certainly are something you don't see in a lot of games.
It's a thrill to shoot down a plane and fly though the explosion you have created - gameplay itself is smooth and feels fairly natural on a keyboard but it may take a while to get used to it. The difficulty is a little questionable, even on the hardest difficulty the game isn't too challenging.
It's a lot of fun for a small pricetag.

Combat Wings is very good game.
Graphics - the airplane models and explosions are pretty. Sound is climatic. This game is easy on hardest difficulty - You don't need to worry about long, sleepy flights, obscure waypoints, fuel limitations, or complex objectives and missions. As for multiplayer, you're welcome to engage in deathmatch or team deathmatch competition with up to ten player.
For one - two afternoon this game is very good. You must buy Combat Wings.

I'm a fan of aviation, and I believe flying gives a sense of freedom and accomplishment, and that's exactly is all about.
The controls are smooth, the environments quite fun. It takes some getting used to, and lots of practice, but when play the game enough, you get skilled. Eventually, you will even have the ability to finish the game on the hardest difficulty.
I'd say, besides the mediocre graphics, this game is still a must-buy.
