Warbirds III is an extremely good flight sim, designed mainly for multiplayer gaming, but can be played offline as well. The successor to Warbirds 2.xx (all the incremental releases), this is a WW2 flight simulation with planes from the main powers in the war – Britain, Germany, USA and Japan. There are also two Italian planes available. In addition to planes, you can also use ground vehicles such as tanks and half-tracks.
On multiplayer, you can also bomb enemy bases, and when they are out of action, it is possible to capture them by dropping paratroopers, thus making it available for your country's use. A very slight downside is that there are no set missions, but you can make missions of your own in multiplayer, getting some people together to give you a fighter escort for example. Bombers have gunner seats that another player can occupy, but gun positions can also be commandeered by the person flying the plane. All in all, this game is very well done, and worth downloading!Reviewed by: FredPlatt
