Dogfight 1942, the fun-focused flight sim from City Interactive, has arrived on Steam today. £11.99 will net you several hours of visceral WW2 action over the European and Pacific campaigns, which was previously only available on Xbox Live Arcade.
"Dogfight 1942 provides a healthy dollop of arcade flight action for an attractive price," I explained in our 7/10 review. "Though perhaps not as polished as it could have been, City Interactive have arguably delivered their finest game to date, and one that absolutely gives aviation fans the thrills they've been sorely craving."
A new DLC expansions has also been released on XBLA to bulk out what is already a good value proposition - more details below.
City Interactive today launched their second DLC installment, Dogfight 1942: Fire Over Africa on Xbox Live Arcade. Fans of the game are presented with the challenge of facing the infamous General Rommel in a clash with his forces above Tobruk. The all-out battle in the sky marks one of the most pivotal aerial skirmishes on the African front – the Battle of El Alamein.
In Fire Over Africa, players will need to become Britain’s top pilot in order to help the Allies repel the Nazi threat before the ominous shadow of the Axis Alliance takes over the sands of Africa. "The scorching hot African sky will soon light up with the flames of heavy cannons and fill with the smoke of bullet-ridden fighter planes."
