So, some weeks ago, I purchased Medal of Honor: Heroes 2.
That same day, my dad got Blazing Angels.
I said to myself, "Ugh. IGN gave it a poor score. "
So I was on my merry way, playing my Medal of Honor.
But I thought, "I might as well just TRY Blazing Angels."
It hasn't left my wii since.
The controls take maybe 5 minutes to get used to. I like the default ones.
Flying around is a breeze, and it's fun.
Shooting is satisfying when you see the enemy plane explode in mid-air, or even strip the wings off it seeing it spiral toward the ground!
Though, my biggest grunt is time-based missions. You've gotta kill all the enemies within the time limit. I'd rather a "Kill all the enemies and survive" type deal, but I'm alright with it. Though sometimes it gets hard because the enemy is sometimes really good at dodging your attacks!
The visuals are actually nice. The planes have good detail. The only thing that's not quite up to speck is the land and trees. They're a bit poorly designed.
Frame rate never dropped. You'd think with 50+ planes flying around, things would get choppy. Not so!
You unlock planes as you go along, unlocking better planes if you complete the mission fast (which I've never been able to get a top ranking! Arg!)
If you're weary of buying this game because of IGN's 5.7, then don't be.
I think when they wrote the review, they still had a grudge from Red Steel.
I'd give it at least an 8.
