If you didn't like it, then why would you buy it just because somebody else does?

2 vs. 2 = iPhone gaming heaven The campaign missions are meh, only good to unlock planes and teach the player basic plane handling.

Exactly and by the time you are able to actually get to complete all 30 missions, you should be able to wreck pretty much 90% of the players online if you won each round through dogfighting means. xD.

and...you're welcome heh.

That's very true, but I don't know a single person who can beat Level 30 legitimately. 10 planes on Insane difficulty!

Actually better than 99% I would say, since if you can win through dogfighting, that would mean you would have completely mastered the skill of dodging, taking perfect opportunities, and know how to use flares at the best times, also you would need an optimal sense of the controls.

That sounds like too much work for me. I'm stuck on like level 27 lol, my dodging sucks.

1) It's almost impossible (or at least seems impossible) to dodge missiles with anything either than flares.

2) When planes are flying within 200 feet of you, targeting someone long enough to lock-on to them is like trying predict where an electron is gonna be.

And while controlling an F-447 (or it it 228, 52... 27?) may feel great with the accelerometer, it can really mess you up if you're going for a really tight turn. Looking at your screen at a 170 degree angle sucks, as does shaking your phone to release flares. They great part about it, though, is that most people online are also as inept as you
