Gameplay : Two-player with great solo ; tactical airplane combat simulation

Graphics : for its age, pretty spot-on. The counters are very graphic, the map is really nice, and the overall is pretty clear.

Replayability : the randomness of the apparently fixed situations makes this a highly replayable game.

Difficulty : simple and modest manual, clear examples, and an easy-to-get gameplay. Apparently, easy to master, but provides lots of fun.

Gamelength : 120 to 360 min

Theme & Lore : the gameplay has been reduced in its simulation ; it might not be an accurate rendition of the defense of London.

Pro : fun and tense ; high replayability ; scale offers more room for fun and replays
Con : simplification of the theme (not really a con)
Wish-meter : 3/5 4/5

Wow, I had a great time with this one. It's a giant dicefest solo game about the Battle of Britain. Took some time, but I had that this weekend. By playing the full game I was able to see the longterm error of my early decisions, which meant Britain was NOT saved by The Few.

London's Burning, London's Burning, fire, fire. Fire, fire.

Sorry for the musical interlude.

An oldie but goodie. I am not much of an airwar player and probably this accounts for the game dropping in my internal rating, but it is very good.

It is also good in showing the difficult decisions that the RAF hd to face during the battle of Britain and how stressing it was for pilots.

Pray for rain.
