Red Baron II [CD-ROM] Windows XP Home Edition | Used; Very Good

$9.99

The battle for air supremacy comes alive in this World War I combat flight simulation where you take to the skies over Europe as either a French, British, American or German pilot. Released seven years after the original, Red Baron II remains true to the historical records and flying aces on which the dogfighting missions are based. Three modes of gameplay include Fly Now (instant in-sky dogfighting with no mission goals), Single Mission (standalone scenarios), and Campaign (create a pilot whose career spans the entirety of WWI). More than 40 WWI vintage aircraft are modeled in the game, including 22 for simulation flying (6 French, 7 German, and 9 British). When playing campaign mode, planes become available for missions in accordance with historical timelines. Roughly half of the instruction manual is devoted to a historical overview of the war including flight tactics, maneuvers, references, and formations employed by the various air forces.
Includes: Disc, Instructions, and Jewel Case with Cover Art Insert. Great condition with only minor signs of wear, if any. May be lacking some retail packaging material, accessories, and/or information.
