Genres: Action, Vehicle Combat

In Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight, players get the chance to take a seat at the controls of a historical airplane and feel the power of its engines and experience the rush of adrenaline flowing through their veins while facing an enemy plane up in the air.

In each of the campaigns for Great Britain, USSR, and Germany, gamers will be able to test their flying skills during deadly encounters with enemy fighters: protecting ground structures from bombers, fighting over the sea to weaken enemy navy, or piloting bombers to destroy strategic targets. Players with a tactical approach will also be able to build a base – by constructing additional hangars and supporting structures and then ensuring their safety by building anti-aircraft artillery and barrage balloons.

There’s all this, plus over 30 historical airplanes at their disposal: from classic fighters to light and heavy bombers which they can fly, repaint, customize, and upgrade. Included in the collection are the Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster, II-2 “Shturmovik”, La-5FN, Ju-87 “Stuka”, Fw 200 “Condor”, and a Nintendo Switch exclusive – the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk.

Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight offers easy-to-learn gameplay with intuitive controls and user-friendly flight mechanics. The game features precise graphic design, with detailed 3D models and amazing special effects, making the entire air combat experience more immersive. English, Russian, and German radio chatter adds to the mood as players fly into the atmosphere of a World War 2 dogfight.

Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight is a pretty decent aerial combat title with engaging battles and a bit of variety, but it also becomes repetitive quickly and the grinding nature when it comes to unlocking new planes is a bit too impeding.  Perfect for those short bursts of gaming when you have little time.

Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight tries to fill in a gap in the Nintendo Switch catalogue when it comes to aerial combat games. While it provides a good amount of aircraft and missions to fulfill, the overall experience is very disappointing: its heavy and clunky gameplay feels very removed from what the game is supposed to deliver and its sub-par visual environment, not to mention almost absent audio component, make this an effort that is better left outside the radar of all but the most hardcore and needy aerial combat fans.

I had more fun with Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight than I expected. It isn't a game I'd normally consider if I wasn't reviewing it. I feel that like-minded players will miss out because of this, while genuinely hard-core pilots will be disappointed by the simplicity of the dogfights. I was genuinely surprised by the game's level of depth outside the cockpit and how much I enjoyed it. If you like simple shooters and sims that extend beyond the tarmac, I'd consider checking this one out.

Its simplistic combat and dull mission structures mean it quickly runs out of steam for anything other than quick bursts of play, and the Switch has plenty of games that can fill that need in a far more compelling way.
