Not sure about this one, i mean, Ubi learns quick from its mistakes, the first one royally sucked ditto on that, but i'll wait and see what the second one'll turn out to be.

Pics are good, sort of Art Work-sy.

You're ridiculous, it's pretty widespread knowledge that the Germans were building prototype jet planes near the end of the war but it was too little too late.

Too bad i'm not into air-born shooting games

I don't see the point reallly. They are just built on the same concept, stealth.

Yes! Precisely! I want these to be good because I love the style of them. The first one was stunning aswell with its almost painting like skyline and stuff, but when games like these are boring, they're pretty god damn boring.

I think it might make a great Wii game though, because the style totally translate to a less powerful console and the wiggle based controls could make it much more immediate and fun.

Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII is coming to the Wii by they way ....... Ubisoft's long porting to the Wii story continues .....

Yeah, no real hope for that one really. :/

It's taking an encouraging bit of time for them to get it out though. Perhaps they looked at Far Cry and realised what a fucking mess they made of that.

Wow, am I the only one who actually liked the first game? Sheesh.

This looks good. Definitely a good improvement, graphically, over the first one, and I like the whole "secret missions" thing. It was a cool idea for BF1942, and I can see it working well here.
Commented on 2007-01-31 18:22:51
Really truly absolutely NO. Dont push your stuttery last-last-last-gen alpha version for a game on me, UBISOFT.

PS. Anybody who "liked" the first game didnt play it on a HD screen because it absolutely bombs through the ground in HD with the DISASTROUS framerate.
Commented on 2007-01-31 18:48:29
could be fun, at least the graphics are good
Commented on 2007-01-31 19:12:09
If they improve graphics engine over the previous one, i am in.
Commented on 2007-01-31 20:17:07
Ok this is much better, teh original blazing angels was a poor game, this one looks very primissing.

WTFF? Are you kidding? Ubi's the only big publisher/developer putting out a constant stream of top notch titles. Yes some of their smaller niche type games have sucked, but at least Ubi is pretty adventuresome in trying out new ideas.

Yeah, they suck.

Only reviews will tell if they fixed the mistakes of the first one.

First one was one of the crappiest games 360 has had so far, so no too mutch expectations. It reminded me of Wings from amiga500 :D Uh well.. Lets just wait and see. Miracles happen but propably not whit this one.
Bit shame though. Nobody doesnt seem to have balls and/or skills to make real fighter plane simulator for consoles. Proper fysics, massive online battles trought live, more than one player per. plane (bomber, turrets, etc...) and other good shit seen on some pc simimulators. I guess games like that just dont intrest big audiences.

Wasn't there a demo of the first one? I absolutely hated it.
