Wasn't expecting much from this game, but it turns out to be pretty good turn base strategy. And, unlike many other ports from iOS, Ace patrol actually fits well with PC. Each pilot has a certain amount of manuvers at his disposal and it is up to player to utilize them the best way possible. And cause we deal with planes here making such simply thing like turning takes at least two turn. Dogfights are challenging and planes can be damaged with affects their performance. Pilots gains experience and learns new manuvers while planes can be upgraded with new components.
It may not be a huge game, but it is a good title on it's own. Something rrare when game comes from mobiles to PC.
HIGH-FLYING TACTICS.suvojit91 | Sept. 6, 2013 | See all suvojit91's reviews »
As it turns out, Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol’s mixture of turn-based tactical combat and quick, level-to-level progression.This $10 Steam version includes full campaigns for the British, French, Americans, and Germans, (which are sold separately on the mobile version) and while the repetitive mission structure gets tedious, the battles themselves never do. This is turn-based dogfighting done right.
Ace Patrol dresses like World War I, feels like a board game, and plays out with tense, deliberate strategy. With a small team of fliers, you’ll battle against an opposing squadron one maneuver at a time. Though your movements are limited at first, you’ll eventually level up your pilots so that they can roll, dive, and flip their way behind enemy birds. The moves are plentiful and easy to use – anticipating multiple enemies’ movements is where things get tricky and thrilling.
Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol combines Firaxis’ storied tactics with fast-paced mission design and a user interface that translates well from touchscreen taps to mouse clicks. The mechanics of dogfighting never get old, and the risk to your pilots makes them tense even when the mission variety grows stale after one campaign. The iOS version is superior thanks to its online multiplayer mode and because it lets you purchase extra campaigns only if you want them, but the PC port certainly doesn’t fail to launch.

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is a pretty good, but small, strategy game. If you are looking something original, you should play this. Ace Patrol can get really addictive and has really fun gameplay. All these things compensate the fact that the game has some glitches and "phone" graphics. Ace Patrol is a port of an iOS game, but if you get this game, get it on a PC.

This really is an original little strategy gem and well worth the money of any gamer looking for something a bit different. It would have easily scored a 10 if it weren't for the fact that a couple of very minor bugs can occasionally break the game (such as having to select an upgrade all your pilots already have after taking the 'copycat' perk). Even with its minor flaws it would be silly not to get it at this price. Let's face it, Firaxis do NOT make garbage.
