Classic or legendary is so often used but for Wings this is so fitting, Wings as it was called was exclusive to the Amiga back in 1990 from one of the biggest developers at the time called Cinemaware. They have been away for a few years but have revived this classic title via Kickstarter. On to the game which is part simulator and part arcade game which is made up of 3 sections, the main part is you in your WWI biplane dog fighting with the enemy being the germans which you will find in most flight simulators view point wise. Second part is strafing in which you travel in your biplane in an isometric view point where you are given certain targets to hit using your machine guns and the third part is a bombing run which is very similar to strafing but is an overhead view point which you just have to drop a certain number of bombs on specific targets so you either succeed or fail. This modern version is a direct conversion of the Amiga original so if you have seen or played that version you will know exactly how this one plays, all original levels, music, graphics and design are as they were but with modern technology so the graphics have been given a lick of paint and the music have been completely re recorded and sound effects have really been beefed up and generally tidied up but a nice feature is the original soundtrack has been included as well if you are feeling nostalgic. The game takes place though WW1 during the years 1916 to 1918, it's has some really nice story boarding with a journal that you keep and makes for a very good read as events unfold before you so you learn about the history of the time and what it was like to be a pilot in the war as well. When you make kills in the game you actually see your tally in the top 10 fighter aces list and can earn medal's as well and have promotion's but do badly and you can end up going home early from the war without a career so it pay's to do well. Wings Remastered Edition does everything the Amiga version did but plays a little faster, looks a little better but also plays a little easier as well although there are 3 difficulty settings should it be too easy for you so for old users of the game this is a dream and hopefully new players will appreciate on enjoy this cult classic too. As someone who has played this for many years since it's original release i thoroughly enjoy and recommend this modern take on the game and enjoy the 230 or so missions and the history too, it's a sure fire hit.
