As rookie pilot Benjamin, you must prove your mettle against kings of the skies, and choose your destiny. Earn medals and ranks as you fight for your country during
World War I under the service of your commanders. Seek fortune and glory as you take on side quests. The choice is up to you! The sky's the limit as you blaze a path to glory on Wings of War...

Wings of War sees you take to the sky in a variety of World War I aircraft. Shoot down your enemy and undertake bombing raids to destroy trains, factories and air balloons. Protect your bombers and clear a path through hostile territory for surveillance planes to pass through safely. You can also split off from the main game and engage the enemy in bonus missions.

The main problem I had with this game was that it was too repetitive. When you've destroyed one train, you've destroyed them all. And to have to keep doing this level after level becomes boring after a while. There is also no real difference between the levels - all of them have you doing pretty much the same missions. Not only that, but the between game movies are really poor - worse than anything you'd expect to see on the PSOne.

Having said that, there was something about this game that I really became hooked on. It could be that there is a lack of games on the market that allow you to fly biplanes, but, whatever it was, it had me hooked for ages.

If flying a World War I biplane is your idea of fun then Wings of War could be the game for you. Sadly though, anyone who likes a little diversity should steer well clear - this game is too repetitive.
