Lethal Skies II Review

I am not much of a person on flight as I have never flown and I never play flight sims. So what you may ask was I doing playing this game? Well I can tell you that this is because this game offers easy control for anyone to just pick up the controller and play, which was something that I thought, was a big plus.

Lethal Skies II brings you to the time of 20xx (whatever that exactly means) and global warming and other disasters have destroyed much of the land. The Frontier Nations have just recently defeated the World Alliance, and after a brief moment of peace, a new threat arises by the name of ANGIL. This new group doesn’t waste any time and starts a 300 day war by bombing the FN.

As I stated earlier, one of the good features for a person who really doesn’t play flight games; the controls are very simple you accelerate with one button, slow down with another, and then a few buttons to fire your weapons. Needless to say, people who are hardcore flight gamers might not find this to be desirable, but for those like me, this is something that I definitely appreciate.

Though there may be easy controls, that does not make the gameplay easy. During some missions you can just breeze by, but some make you want to kill somebody after having to play through them several times. The AI definitely isn’t too difficult, but at times you are put under conditions where you can win for the most part, but often you are put in a position where you can screw up and ruin your whole mission. This, of course, is not the case all of the time, but this game does require some skill if you want to beat it.

Lethal Skies II offers you some inviting graphics right off the bat with the opening video. If you have ever seen a jet in real life, than you would be able to see some of the real detail they put into designing them. Not only are the exterior of the jets detailed, the cockpit of every jet has a unique layout, as well as different features. As much detail there was put into the graphics of the jets, the landscapes are a bit monotonous. In many missions, you really can’t focus upon the landscapes due to the action, but when you can, they are really nothing much to look at.

Lethal Skies II is definitely something worth looking into for people with varying interests. Whether you love flight simulators or you are looking to try one out, Lethal Skies II’s 19 total jets and over 20 missions will give you satisfaction to your flying needs.
