Action/ shooter. Meet thrilling sequel of popular hit: Master of the Skies: Hunt for the Red Ace that lets you experience thrill and excitement of air battles during the WWI. Take control of one of original jets and go ahead for victory and glory! You can play either as an Allied or Central Powers Pilot and feel the atmosphere of straight out air battles for the world dominance. You may begin with training missions that teach you everything you need to know about dog fight. Before each mission you have short briefing that gives you objectives and tips. Among your objectives will be the following: destroy enemy AA guns, protect bombers, eliminate columns of tanks, etc. Your jet is armed with machine guns, rockets and bombs; you have the definite number of bombs, though gun machine has unlimited ammo. There is radar that indicates enemy jets and marks objectives. The most striking innovation is multiplayer mode that allows you to fight against seven opponents from all over the world over LAN or via the Internet.
Style and atmosphere inside the game:
Red Ace Squadron is a challenging shooter that features colorful graphics, diverse sound effects and march music. Graphics is quite well done; jets, AA guns, tanks and structures look decent though they lack details in order to be called realistic. What I like is the possibility to create your character; you choose from 12 given photos that are quite funny and amusing. The most frustrating point is game controls; though you can select type of control, they all are really inconvenient. All in all, Red Ace Squadron is a decent game that includes variety of jets and missions, and captivating multiplayer. It may be interesting to fans of this genre, of course if you'll be able to get used to controls.
