Good review. Looks like more plane games might be in the future. Although, why did Yahtzee make a Gears of War reference at the end?

Haha, "I've seen light switches with more tactical fexibility!", so true indeed.
Great review, and comes close to what i was thinking about the game. The flying is extremely fun, and of course they needed to cut down realism to a somewhat playable level. I just wish the game's difficulty would have been defined by more tactical options instead of just throwing in masses and masses of enemy aircraft and vehicles to shoot down.

As soon as I saw this was the game he was reviewing, my first thought was "Whoopie. We get to hear about how much Yahtzee hates American Imperialism again. Joy." Turns out I was right. But I was grateful that he took some time out from bashing the American Military Industrial Complex and American nationalism to actually REVIEW THE FUCKING GAME.

And having heard that, I was very glad that he was actually able to enjoy a game where you fly around in jets and blow shit up. Astonishing how that works.

Please, Yahtzee, do all of us in America a favor and stop reviewing games that involve American international relations, or at least stop editorializing on their politics. We know the rest of the world hates us, and we're tired of hearing about it. It's not amusing or comical when you rant against America anymore. It's just as vitriolic and bile-stained as your mom after her weekly two girls one cup reenactment.

But not as vitriolic or bile-stained as Rush taking the drugs out of his fat mouth long enough to rant about the evils of socialism and how much he misses the good ol' days of Dubya.

"Threading a needle with the leg of an angry spider."

I don't know where the hell he gets such apt analogies, but they're flawless.

I actually watched my friend play this for 1-2 hour so the spoilers weren't spoilers for me, yay!
Overall it looked slightly complicated... and even if it's simple I was never a good flyer-gamer (Still haven't beaten GTA:SA because I can't get past flight school).
Overall, this game is -not- for me.

Nice review this week, while having a few parts off the regular pace I found it entertaining.

Yahtzee shoud've said Tom Clancy's Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X by Tom Clancy; like from the Clive Barker's Jericho review

Press X to make the world safe for democracy---now that's a good new twist on an old joke.

Also, the Webby Awards are a complete and utter joke [http://www.slate.com/id/2216250/] with about as much credibility as if I ran a blog, created a banner, and gave it to the Escapist (or any other website) so they could call themselves "Some Guy With a Blog's Website of the Fucking Year." So no, annoying ad, I won't visit that worthless site and waste my time voting. I'm too busy wasting my time ranting about it in a post that nobody will read because it'll be buried under OVER NINE THOUSAND more comments in the space of about five minutes.
I read your post...

About time someone made this into a video game:

Is that even possible? I would think it would be hard to convey said work without the prose, most of the fun is in the fact that you need to read every damn word in that book.

This was a pretty funny episode. Did anyone else notice something different about Yahtzee's voice, though? It seemed a little more...chill. Like, maybe he was closer to the mic and had to pull it back a bit. I dunno, maybe it's just me.

Decent review. A little lacking in the humor department but still solid.

On a different note, has anyone else noticed that Yahtzee hasn't reviewed a PC game since Left 4 Dead?

Great review again mr. Yahtzee.

I was silently hoping you would review another Wii game again, so we would all have the great pleasure of watching the Nintendo Crusaders throw themselves selflessly into the mote of the Yahtzee castle!

I am only a recent "viewer" of your reviews, but I love them very much!

It's good to know the sewage floodgate that is the current games industry still has a nemesis that simply wants quality.

Keep up the great work!
