Ok, it's not Crimson Skies, but it is air combat and looks like it could be fun!

Been playing it for a while, certainly is a far better game than World of Warplanes.

For starters it has better graphics, more fleshed out tech trees and more interesting game modes.

I finally played for a while tonight, it was disappointing without a joystick so I have ordered a new one, for some reason my old Microsoft stick has given up the ghost.

Had a hard time playing with the mouse as it was inverted and so counter intuitive for me and I could not find a way to change that. Still though, the second match I managed to kill three tanks and some AAA, but my team ultimately lost both matches.

Sadly it is not nearly as instinctive as the Crimson Skies PC game, that game was just plain fun!

I have to admit the graphics are pretty good, perhaps after I get the joystick I will be able to enjoy it more.

Menu and then controls setup to change the controls IIRC.

Did you go straight onto Historical Battles or just Arcade?

Played for a bit tonight with my new joystick, better control and more finesse, but the bottom line is that I still suck. *Sigh* :(
