“We’ve tried over the years to find a way to get Shockwave quality to all flight simmers, especially those on a budget.  We thought about making “gold, silver, bronze, professional grade, etc.” lines, but we just did not want the Wings of POWER brand to be associated with anything less than the best we can deliver.  This new line called “Solo” allows a Wings of POWER quality aircraft to be purchased for under $20.”

Wings-of-Power-foldout

“A phenomenal level of accuracy in the plane and flight modeling”    

 - IGN.COM

 

“The 2D cockpits are spectacular, and amazingly enough the 3D cockpits are virtually indistinguishable from the 2D versions.

Every button, switch, lever, and other component is modeled in exacting detail, covered with textures that look great even at the highest resolutions.”

- GAMESTOP

 

“These planes are so painstakingly modeled, in fact, that Shockwave actually encourages you to grab a copy of the real plane's manual and compare it to the way the simulated plane behaves”    

- GAMESPY

"Shockwave's Bf 109 and Spitfire cockpits are the best of any aircraft [in] any flight simulation around - worth every cent."
"If you really want to get a feeling for what it was like to climb in the cockpit and soar into the skies with one of these WWII legends, this is as good as it gets."

"Let's take a closer look at what you get for your money. The version I have comes on a single CD-ROM and also includes a set of full-colour fold-out sheets. Measuring 42cm across by 35cm in depth, these large paper 'fold-outs' contain pilot's notes for each of the five included aircraft and are designed to help you get the most out of each one. Dominating the central panel of each fold-out is a large screenshot of the cockpit pertaining to each aircraft...If that was not enough, an additional sheet includes comparative data between the aircraft which is presented in pictoral graphs. It illustrates how each aircraft compares in terms of top speed, maximum range, engine horsepower, power-to-weight ratio, combat weight as well as maximum rate of climb. Fans of WWII fighter aircraft will find this kind of information not only fascinating, but educational...Shockwave is to be applauded for including this information in this innovative and handy format and other developers should be encouraged to follow suit."

"As with Shockwave’s last effort, planes are accurately modeled down to the last rivet. Everything is highly detailed and amazingly clear. This attention to detail carries over to the sound department. Engine noises are true-to-life and come through at full force."

"In recent years, one company, Shockwave Productions, has ascended rapidly to elite status to Flight Simulator enthusiasts with the release in 2004 of the stunning Wings of Power I: WWII Heavy Bombers and Jets. WOPI was one of the most commercially successful and highest rated add-ons in the history of the Flight Simulator franchise. Not content to rest on its laurels, Shockwave is back with Wings of Power II: World War II Fighters - Special Edition (WOPII)."

"Beginning with the amazing Firepower add-on for MS Combat Flight Simulator 3, Wings of Power: Heavy Bombers and Jets, a few detailed single WWII aircraft add-ons, and now Wings of Power II: WWII Fighters Special Edition, Shockwave has established itself as the boldest and probably the best developer of payware add-ons for one of PC gaming’s all-time greatest franchises.
If you’re a real enthusiast of MS Flight Simulator 2004, you’ve got to get this one."

Highs
Outstanding flight models, graphics, and sound. 3D virtual cockpits are to die for. FSX compatible.

Lows
None that I can confirm at this point.

Final Verdict
Utterly convincing simulations of five unique and wildly popular WWII fighter planes for the best civilian flight simulator of all time.

"The attention to detail and level of modeling is simply jaw dropping.

Zooming in on various areas of the cockpit show nice crisp textures and, most importantly, easily readable lettering on the various switches and dials, allowing you to explore and find the multitude of controls you’ll need to operate the aircraft properly.

Flying the P-51 I felt a bit like I had the tiger by the tail while the P-47 is just pure butter to fly.

There is plenty more to share about these fine aircraft, but suffice it to say that Shockwave has produced one of the finest collections of add-on aircraft for Flight Simulator 2004 that have ever been put together."

This product should be on every one's hard drive.

It is truly amazing that any one developer would release 5 different aircraft of this caliber in one inexpensive package.

Sitting in the virtual cockpit of any of the 5 aircraft will give you such a feeling of being there, it is unreal.

The sounds in this add-on are some of the best I have ever heard for WW2 aircraft

Flying each of the aircraft is a challenge. I found that each plane has its own little quirks and it takes some getting used to! You can’t just point your plane down the runway and expect to takeoff. You will need to make use of your rudders to compensate for the torque of the powerful engines as most of the planes have a real desire to pull to the left when you are attempting a takeoff roll.

If you have an interest in vintage aircraft or a desire to try something a little less conventional than that of modern aviation, this product has it all and let me tell you; Shockwave Productions has a customer for life!

 88% - “Excellent”

“Each of the game’s five flyable planes – the P-47D-20, P-51D Mustang, Mk IA Spitfire, A6M5 Zero, and Messerschmitt Bf109 features down-to-the-rivet authenticity.”

“Be forewarned, though: After just one hour behind the stick of Shockwave’s dreamy P-51 Mustang, you might never want to fly a Cessna again.”
