If you liked the original you'll like this. It's the cliché that most of us reviewers try to side-step as urgently as if it were a loony-eyed hobo. Thing is, it isn't true of Blazing Angels II: Secret Missions of WWII, because anyone who paid for the original will probably find this sequel a personal insult to them, their family and their dead Labrador.

While the first Blazing Angels covered the basics well enough, it also suffered from rushed presentation, obvious budget restrictions and a few genuinely bizarre design choices - a set of problems that, unfortunately, this sequel repeats with careless abandon.
