Game Review

Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain is the second title in the series of Lucasfilm flight sims set during World War II.

The game is the sequel to Battlehawks 1942, and it's set during the Battle of Britain between the German Luftwaffe and the British Royal Air Force in the summer of 1940.

You can play on both sides of the battle. As a British pilot, you will mostly have defense missions, while germans have attack objectives. The available planes include Spitfire and Hurricane on the British side, Bf 110, Bf 109, and several other bombers on the german side.

Their Finest Hour is not precisely a flight simulator; it's better to consider it an action game, but this is not a negative point. The gameplay is simply perfect. Besides, the option to adopt 3D only partially (only for the backgrounds and limited to plain colors) allowed a fast framerate not only on the PC but also Amiga and Atari ST.

In short, this is a masterpiece that every retro gamer should not miss.
