B-17 Flying Fortress reviews

GameSpy (2001): "Godzilla-sized PC requirements aside, B-17 Flying Fortress is a stunning creation from the creators of Falcon 4.0 and European Air War. Considering the depth to which B-17 will let you experience the terror of daylight strategic bombing in WWII from so many different and simultaneous angles, I'm amazed they were able to pull it off. And even though the multi-player aspects were pulled from B-17 at the last moment, I'm hopeful that a patch will appear sometime this year providing such support. You're going to need all the help you can get to survive the 25 missions you'll need before getting shipped stateside."

    I played B17, many many times. Often very late into the night. It was fun trying to get a damaged bomber home, keeping the crew healthy, managing the fuel, as it often leaked from the wings. It's a pity they didn't keep the game play and just update the graphics for the next one... B17 the mighty 8th. ( Because it is a mess.. Just played it and the plane took off under AI, though a tree and a hanger ! Lost all 4 planes due to crashing into each other. ) This one was much better... But it has been a long time. Maybe I'll try it again.
