Critic Reviews for Red Wings: Aces of the Sky
Red Wings biggest sin resides in its little varied offering, but it does right a lot of things: campaing can be played in coop, the action is intense and joyful, it has some interesting mechanics... It's a shame that it doesn't offer more types of missions and modes.

Despite its flaws, Red Wings: Aces of the Sky is a decent dogfighting game. The night flight missions show just how tricky it must have been, trying to pick out the enemy against the inky black sky, and the dogfighting is genuinely engaging, if a bit too repetitive and not quite historically accurate. If you're a fan of combat sims and you want to try something different to the modern fighter jets we're all used to, it's worth a shot.
In summary, when it comes to Red Wings: Aces of the Sky, there just isn't that much to talk about. It's a fun little game for a while, but it gets repetitive quickly, and it's very easy. I think most experienced gamers will enjoy it for a couple of days and then forget about it because it doesn't inspire any strong feelings or make you want to go all completionist on it for the achievements.
Red Wings: Aces of the Sky is a solid first effort by All In! Games. I hope this isn’t the end of the road for the franchise, because there’s tremendous groundwork that’s been laid here for something that could be truly special. If the developers were to flesh out the modes, further the variety in the missions, and hire actors more capable of conveying the power of the writing, we could have one of the all-time great dogfighting games ever made. Until then, Red Wings remains good, but not great.
At the end of the day, Red Wings is actually a good game. Is it great? Probably not, mainly for longevity reasons, but it's fun to play. It feels like a well-designed and executed WWI dogfight game and it certainly is a comfortable bit of fun on the Nintendo Switch. Will it be replacing your Flight Simulator on your PC anytime soon? No, but that's okay. It's honestly not trying to do that at all.
