All of the missions and locations are based on and inspired by actual events like Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, the Battle of Midway, Coral Sea, and the battle of Wake Island, which makes this game great for history buffs as well!  What makes it even more exciting is that it uses real maps and satellite photographs that make it even more real.

Another fun feature of this game is that you can either take on the enemy on your own or you can team up with up to 4 other players with an innovative war mode that lets you compete with up to 16 aviators around the world.

This is not your typical flying game you have to control your speed by manipulating the ailerons, and rudders and all of the planes have over 100 hit points, which are where different parts of the plane have their own health and damage detection.  This makes the game challenging and you have to be more aware of all parts of your plane and which plane you are flying.

Birds of Steel is a great game for you if you are interested in planes, like history, and want a game that gives you the feel that you are actually flying the planes.  There are tons of choices when it comes to which planes you want to fly and you have a variety of missions and challenges that will keep you entertained for hours.  This game takes actual events that took place in history and turn them into an exciting realistic game that is great for everyone!
