  • As a huge fan of titles like Wing Commander and some others back in the day I developed a love for dogfighting games quite some time ago (obviously). While obviously not set in space, and also in a much earlier era of aerial combat, Red Wings does deliver on a relatively challenging and long set of missions for you to work through, conquering consistently-escalating challenges as newer and tougher enemies and mission formats consistently emerge. One struggle I had early on was having to kick my normal desire to conquer each mission as they come, honestly getting all 3 stars in the early missions feels like it's pretty deliberately impossible. Without the upgrades you’ll gain, and the more effective craft you’ll unlock, maintaining a high combo meter to knock out planes quickly and efficiently would be a Herculean task. Instead, you’ll want to go long, as simply completing missions will slowly unlock new aircraft which will then allow you to find your preferred craft and then eventually begin going back to earn stars to pump up your stats with upgrades. If you’re just looking for plenty of content and challenges this does a pretty good job of delivering, just keep in mind that the scope is pretty narrowly focused on more of a straight arcade-like experience, lacking more satisfying depth or intrigue beyond shooting things out of the sky.
