The Cold War was a lengthy, multi-faceted conflict that didn't really stick to the script of previous global clashes.
Its two main protagonists - the US and the Soviet Union - didn't even engage each other in direct conflict, for one thing.

Bit of a gamble
It's perhaps unsurprising, then, that Sky Gamblers: Cold War comes across as a slightly more awkward action-flight sim than its World War-related predecessors (such as Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders).
Despite a disjointed Campaign mode, Sky Gamblers: Cold War provides more slick dogfighting action with a greater range of military toys to play with
