This game is amazing. I am especially impressed by it because it turned out to be exactly what I wanted. I love flying games, especially aerial combat, but when it is too technical and all sim I get frustrated. This game finds that perfect middle ground. You can stall, crash, lose control, and so forth... but you do not need the skills of a professional pilot to play it. Any gamer can get the hang of the controls with some practice and it is a TON for fun to fly around. Your plane is not indestructable but can take some damage so it is not like a few shots puts you on the ground. Missions and enemies come in a variety of difficulty levels so both the novice and expert will feel challenged byt different game modes. There are abour 40 different aircraft that you can fly in the game and various missions utilize unique attacks: machine guns, bombs, torpedos, rockets, and even phtos are all skills you must learn. I found the graphics to be pretty impressive, even without an HDTV. The background music is pretty cool, too, and that adds a lot to the gaming experience. I have had a blast with the game so far. I have mainly flown campaign missions, arcade mode (gun down enemies to earn time and pass checkpoints), and duels with aces. I don't think I have had as much fun playing a flight game since the days of Red Baron. You will not regret this purchase! I did not even mention the use of sixaxis control, which is another great feature that is used well in this game. Again, Blazing Angels is highly, highly recommended for the PS3.
