Graphically, Wings II was very nice. Game play was about average. Mant different missions await you as the game progresses. Very solid title.

Not a bad bi-plane simulator. The controls take awhile to get used to because of the wind you are flying against. The control is very realistic and handles nicely. The graphics are pretty good, although the backgrounds could stand a little variety. With a stout heart and good reflexes, you can show the Barons of flying a thing or two. A worthy sequel!

If you like Pilot Wings, you'll like Wings II. However, the only similarity is that you are flying a bi-plane now. The plane handles very well, and acts just like that type of plane would in flight. My only complaint is that I thought the collision counter during aerial combat wasn't too accurate. I often found myself being clipped by a plane some distance ahead of me. Other than that, this game is very good, with music that sounds like its straight from a Steven Spielberg film.

Wings II was very impressive. Both the sound and the graphics are excellent. The play control is also good, particularly after you get your pilots powered up. While the basic background does stay the same throughout the entire game, the variation in missions helps to make it a little less noticeable. Worth seeing.
