The details on the aircraft and buildings aren’t spectacular, but the weather effects and billowing smoke are beautiful. Flying alongside a cloud during a sunset, the view is pleasingly pretty, and it’s nice to be in a combat flight sim where it’s OK to take the time to notice. However, you’ll not want to get shot down, as planes lost during a campaign are gone for good. Playing well earns you new planes to fly, but you’ll want to hold onto them for the harder, later missions. It’s a nice detail that ensures you don’t take the action too flippantly.
AoPH is light and fluffy like a marshmallow. And marshmallows are great. Brain-free, light-hearted combat, toasted on a stick.
