Jagdverband 44 - Screaming Eagles

" Since Lucasfilm's Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe, no flight sim developer had paid much attention to some of the strange planes the Germans designed in WW II. Yes, you can fly a Me262 Sturmvogel or a Me163 Komet in certain games but, what about a Horten or a rocket-driven Bachem BA?

People love big bombers, like the Liberator or the B-17, so why do not put all this together on a single game? There was a lot of expectation regarding Jagdverband 44 - Screaming Eagles for these reasons. But expectation turned into deflation once the game appeared on the market.

Certainly, Hammer has really capable and crafty people using 3D Studio Max modelling, and you can appreciate it looking at the nicely-textured planes and cockpits. They choose a "polygon-generated" approach for cockpits instead of the usual bitmap, and this gives pilot a lot of visual freedom.

Unfortunately, the originality on the game ends there, we can't speak of a truly flight model or a great gameplay here. "
