Video of Blazing Angels demo

Video of Blazing Angels demo

As we're still waiting for GRAW demo, Ubisoft offers us a little piece of Blazing Angels on the Marketplace. If you're not bored enough to take a quick peek by yourself, here is a 720p video of the game, well done by our most beloved Tyran. I see some nice post-processing effects but the framerate seems to have serious breathing issues.

aye,but not on the last map,and was quite nice to see your airplane shine :P when you took-U-TUrns after some enemies.
Also you play as an american and some of the wing mans are it too,apperebty ubi soft realised how good their titles sells in USA,they have to fake history.
Yes the americans was the ones winning the wars vs luftwaffe,yeah right :P
Btw,göring was an idiot,instead of finishg RAF,he wanted to bomb London,instead of bombing their airfields.
Anyway,I can understand ubi soft,but feels wrong when people faking history.

That's weird, another friend of mine told me the same thing. But Blim complained about the framerate, and in the video, it is indeed quite choppy. Hmm, strange.

Very boring game to me. Going on my original thoughts and avoiding this one, especially with the 1.5 version on the way (if the leaked documents are legit).

Vsync was not going perfectly, but it was better than some other games. When you have your target locked and do a u-turn, especially on the tutorial run in broad daylight, you can see it get cut up.

According to the TXB review there are no framerate issues.

From a technical standpoint, Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII is virtually flawless. There are no framerate hiccups to talk about, online lag, or graphical anomalies that sometimes spill over into the gameplay.

Oh yea, you guys play the actual release yet. I really want to play it, but can't get it yet.

Btw Snooper,its been confirmed today that all ps3 games will be regions free,basically meaning that you can import an american/japanese game and play it on your ps3,and no you dont need anything extra,just put that japanese game into your EU ps3,and play the game :)

For more news look at IGN,just thought you guys wanna know about it...

I really hope those without a 360 can get theirs soon!
Commented on 2006-03-23 02:35:46
Looking great. The demo looks pretty nice, just wish they could fix the framerate problems.
Commented on 2006-03-23 02:55:49
It was average at best for me. Would never pay 60 bucks for this game. Besides, with Oblivion out, who has time for MORE games? =)
Commented on 2006-03-23 03:46:53
Another polished Xbox 1 title, one to avoid then.
Commented on 2006-03-23 05:54:01
Agreed. Stay away. Nothing special. I bought Oblivion yesterday and I am completely blown away.

Once I got the hang of the controls it was a fun demo (just use the left stick, don't mess with the right-stick roll to much).. The last 2 missions in this demo were cool, bombing those ships, and protecting London.. Lots of stuff going on, didn't even have time to fully check out the graphics because I was so immersed in the game.. Could be a winner in online MP this one..

The graphics (as far as I could tell) were not of a woow-factor (probably because it's bassicly a Xbox port with more polished textures and some nice lighting effects etc), but if you consider how much stuff is going on they're pretty impressive imho.. I also didn't notice much slowdown in fps, maybe a dip with big exploisions etc, but that's no problem imho..

P.s. comparing this game with Oblivion is totally useless, they're 2 completly different games.. Tbh I couldn't care less about adventure RPG games like Oblvion, so you won't see me buy that, but I also don't tell other people to stay away from it.. So why some people here tell me and others to stay away from this game and get Oblivion instead is beyond me..

I know what "region free" means, thank's ;)

And just to add to this announce, the console will be region free indeed, but concerning the games, it'll be led to publisher's will. So...
Commented on 2006-03-23 10:12:22
'region free' just as the xbox360 then, eh...

I'm quite intrigued with the arrival of several demos on the marketplace lately. Good stuff!
Commented on 2006-03-23 12:26:53
Aren't all Xbox 360 games also region-free aslong as you use a HDTV? Because then it doesn't matter anymore if your using PAL or NTSC?
Commented on 2006-03-23 12:26:56
According to teamxbox the final game is perfect in terms of fps.

Still have no intention of getting this one though. I'll wait for a flying game built from the ground up for the 360 :D

The demo has been removed from xbox live!!!!!!!!

That's great! I can finally import those weird porn...I mean... Action-games, from Japan XD... Just action...

I like this game. It's got a nice atmosphere. But worth 40 precious pounds? I don't know...

Same as burnout revenge, a fine last gen game shamelessly ported over. This lacks so many basic things that make for a next gen game especially in the graphics department I just cannot accept it.

Where the xbox1 was spared of last-gen port-jobs due to the fact that the PS2 had been out for a long time and most quality titles were mostly next-gen material, the 360 is now suffering direct port-overs from last gen hardware.

Think of it this way, the xbox1 did not get games ported from or primarily built for PSOne (PSX) which was the actual last-gen at the time. But the 360 is getting a bucket load of last gen titles built for hardware as old as 6 years!

I have a feeling the games that come mid to late in the life of the 360 and the PS3 will absolutely destroy these launch-window and early games.

The PS3 folks should pray they are spared of PS2 port-jobs.. the PS2 sure received its share of PSX port-jobs so history might repeat itself, unfortunately.

About the game

  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (1 Hour ago)

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (3 Hours ago)
