    Greetings ladies and gentlemen.

    A new WWII flight sim is coming out from the Montreal company UbiSoft. It's name ? "Blazing Angels : Squadron of WWII".

    The game will be in store later this year. Unfortunately, the game will be playable exclusively on X-Box... Damnit !

    Anyway, here is the official web site :

    http://www.blazing-angels.com/uk/

    And I attached the trailer below.

    P.S. I don't know why, but I love the music playing on the web site.

    the German radio sounds came from IL-2, it was the control tower saying "warning, abort runway approach, repeat, abort runway approach"

    Basically a first person shooter type game but with planes instead of guns, not enough buttons for a real simulation on xbox.

    I think FPS is meant for PCs

    Hmmm, looks as nothing extra..... Fopr example EAW is 7 years old and has a similar, maybe even better and longer intro...

    I played to EAW. It was a Warez version I found on internet a few weeks back... So no videos for me.

    However, even if I had something like 50 victories my pilot still had the "Pilot Officer" rank I started with and I didn't receive any medals... Even if I was playing with all options set to "realistic". It must be a bug of the Warez version...

    Personnally, I think the good old days of flight simulators with all the cockpits details and stuff like that are over. It's less expensive for companies to develop a game for a game platform like the X-Box or the Play Station than develop a computer game.

    Why ? Because the hardware in a X-Box is standard to all X-Boxes. So you don't have the compatibility problems that you have with computers. So what companies will do is create the game for a game platform and then (if you're lucky) they will make some minor changes to make a PC version...

    Companies like LucasArts already started to do that. They stopped making games of the X-Wing serie and they created Jedi Academy and the Rogue Squadron serie for a game platform first, then made a PC version. They are doing that for most games now.

    So I think UbiSoft is gonna do the same thing.

    Yes, that must be a bug of that version...
    And I agree with you on that XBox issue
