Strategy games don't always have to be grand and sweeping. Sometimes they work best when they're small and focused, with skirmishes replacing enormous battles and characters taking the place of faceless units.
Sid Meier's Ace Patrol lets you get down to the nitty gritty of aerial combat. You're never in control of more than four planes, the battlefield is never big enough to get lost on, and each of your pilots is a human being with medals, skills, and special moves earned through combat.
From that simple template the game weaves a majestic dance of vulnerable airborne death machines. You'll soar, you'll swoop, you'll blast dastardly foes out of the sky, and you'll be enthralled for every second.
A brilliantly balanced, perfectly playable game of strategy and swooping turns that will have you enthralled, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is a must-play
