Play each one as the Imperial Navy or Ork Air Waaagh! From Thunderbolts to Marauders, Fightas to ‘Eavy Bommers, take command of the mighty airborne engines of war from across the Imperial Navy and Ork Airwaagh! “I give you command of the air. It is up to you how you take it.” – Warmaster Macaroth, dispatch to Admiral Ornoff, 773.M41

Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command Critic Reviews

The transposition of the Games Workshop miniature games fails to deliver a fun experience on all fronts.

Unfortunately Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command is not one of the better Games Workshop adaptations. It is a game that relies far more on luck than judgement or skill, and so is repetitive at best, and frustrating at worst. I like that they're trying something different in translating the game from tabletop to screen, and the cinematics are a nice system, but it comes at the expense of the gameplay experience.

Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command is a mixed bag of dice. It’s a unique concept and the tabletop conversion and combat interpretation feels fantastic, its just a shame that when your head’s out the clouds the rest of the game doesn’t feel quite so special. Fans of strategy titles should definitely take this interesting new title for a spin but don’t expect it to be a long haul flight.
