Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain

Simulation 1989 Dos Dosbox LucasArts Flight World Wars Military flight

A very good albeit old combat sim game

The game is basically a copy of Battlehawks, only it is set in Europe. It is a combat flight simulator game that concentrates on the Battle of Britain between the Brits and the Germans who were invading Britain in 1940. You can choose your front, and play as the British defending or the Germans who are preparing for the invasion of the British island. The game is really intense and full of action and has cool special effects, such as chunks of destroyed aircrafts falling to the ground in smoke, or pilots jumping with their parachutes when they lose a plane which makes the game look pretty realistic. The controls are relatively easy to figure out and the game plays pretty faithfully to real life flying. The graphics are actually very good for an 1989 game and it's a shame the game has no significant music or sound system. Overall, this is a very good combat sim game and a very faithful historic representation of one of the most important battles in the history of World World II.

Great simulation

When I bought my first computer in 1990 this was one of the games installed. I love this game because it is very realistic. It has a lot of missions and variety of planes to pilot, and in the bombers you can also man the machine guns or drop bombs on targets. It does not have multiplay and the graphic is VGA but that is THE BEST simulation I have ever played. Now I am going to find and install it and play. So long
