Birds of Steel picks up directly where Birds of Prey left off; instantly accessible and yet hugely challenging, depending on how you tune it. The environments are huge, the plane list is long plus it looks gorgeous and sounds great. The action is thick and visceral; aerial stoushes can go from tense, one-on-one affairs to grand, epic encounters against swarms of enemy fighters and bombers.

Sincere attempts have been made to make this game more universally appealing to a wider range of gamers with the simpler control options. Removing the need to focus heavily on keeping your plane in the air leads to a fun-but-simple flight combat game. Unfortunately, you can’t escape the fact that the gamer who will get the most from Birds of Steel is the one who has at least one meticulously painted World War II model airplane.

Birds of Steel is not a game that will set the world alight. It won’t tear up the charts or challenge FIFA or Call of Duty for hearts and minds. But the focus isn’t on being the kind of game that everyone will love, it’s on being a good fit for a smaller, knowledgeable fan base. It’s tricky to see how large a market there is for a game like this but if, by some chance, you’re a fan of vintage air combat from the WWII era then this is likely to have great appeal.
