Dawn Patrol: Head to Head is the modem version of Rowan's Dawn Patrol, released in 1995 - about one year after the original. The gameplay remains the same: the game is structured like a history book that describes the progress of the air war over Europe -- specifically the Western Front between 1915-1918. On each page is a mission in which you can participate as either an Allied or Hun pilot.

As in Dawn Patrol, Head to Head boasts 13 different airplanes and over 150 missions. One-on-one dogfighting is now available via serial connection, although you can still play against the competent computer-controlled planes. If you enjoy Dawn Patrol or World War I/II flight sims in general, this is one of Rowan's finest hours that deserves a spot on your hard drive next to Red Baron. In addition to offering modem play, this version also gets rid of some minor bugs and gameplay issues present in the 1994 release. Two thumbs up, way up!
