User reviews for Secret Weapons Over Normandy
7.5 / 10Combined Score
No a flight sim.
Awsome graphs! The missons (about 30) are totally awsome, fun. You get tones of Airplanes by completing missons, and when you finish a mission, you unblock things like more Amo, more bombs, more maneuvrability, better armor, movies, all kind's of things. I have a bro, so when I play with him, we play in Dual player mode, either against or in the same team. I personnally like mission 4 when you have to torpedo ships. Did I mession ennemies? Their's all kinds: Fighters, bombers, Ships, 37 and 66mm ground guns, submarines, patrol boats, tanks, gun towers...
You can land to refuel or rearm your plane to.
You don't have to be an accomplished pilote to play this game! Plus you can order your teamates around to either attack your target, defend you or fight at will.
You can have planes from the allies or ennie planes that have been captured AKA: Messerchmite 262, Messerchmite 163, German Bomber.
I'm stuck on the 14th level, and there are 15. the last five levels are incredibly difficult, and unfair (allied airfields you can land at, but no allies in the air with you, what's up with that?) ...
No look-around, bizarre controller set-up, time manipulation, external bombing view.
On the back of the box it reads; "you don't have to be pilot to enjoy this game". A more accurate statement would have been "if you are a pilot, you won't enjoy this game". I am extremely disappointed in this game. The controller setup (which is not customizable), is absurd. I was using the "advanced" preset, which is the only one with rudder controls. In this mode the right analog stick is throttle (up, down) and rudder (left, right). Takes some getting use to, but fine , whatever, I'll adapt. Or so I thought. Then I made the realization that it would not let you operate both simultaneously. (ie, throttle down, left rudder or diagonally down and left.) This is unexceptable in an aircombat sim where you need operate several flight controls at the same time in order to keep to the enemies' si...
