Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII is a sequel to a successful video game about aerial battles of World War II. This time you play as a member of an elite squadron performing top secret operations. Just as in Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII, the gameplay model is much closer to arcade than simulation. This way the game targets a much broader audience.
Since the missions you do are top secret, you can use a wide array of tools, many of which are prototypical. Therefore, you can equip your plane with rapid-fire cannons or air-to-air missiles. Single player missions (such as aerial combat, bombing ground targets) are done for the Allies, your enemy being the Third Reich, also geared up with weapons, which were not yet in mass production in the years 1939-1945. E.g. the enemies have at their disposal the famous jet-propelled Horten Ho 229A, a.k.a. the flying wing.
Developers from Ubisoft Studios prepared a lot of interesting locations for military operations. You fly above sun-burned Cairo, Himalayan peaks, Moscow and many more. Environments are very detailed with such things as realistic clouds, dense forests, or torrential rains. Besides, varying air density was implemented, which has an effect on the plane behavior. On top of that, there is a multiplayer mode featuring lots of interesting scenarios (team fights over a territory, epic duels of aces, etc).
