Just started playing this game.

 

It's amazing.

It came out last year, and I know it's also available on PC.

It only costs $15.00, but it's worth it.

I like what one of the reviewers said, "Beneath it's cutesy exterior, it's a serious bomber simulator."

 

Yeah, that's accurate.  Really accurate. 

 

It's basically a management sim.  You have to tell your crew to do everything.  From tagging enemy fighters, to refilling ammo, to fixing damaged equipment on your plane, to tagging navigation points.

You have to pick the right gear to help them survive to complete their mission.

It is one of the first games I've encountered where getting back to base is not a critical objective.  Just destroying your target is. 

 

Word to the wise, don't get to attached to your crew, they will die.  Hell, I lost all of my crew when the plane exploded! 

 

The game will not relent, you need to stay on your toes.  It's a relief when you get out of combat, most likely as a piece of Swiss cheese.

It's still fun.

Bought it a few days ago and played it for the first time last night... Boy, oh boy, one moment you're like "This is such a pleasant flight on my way to obliterate our enemies with bombs" and the next second all you can think it's "Sh*t, sh*t! F*ck, f*ck, f*ck! What do I do?! Plane's all damaged, untagged enemy fighters incoming, electric system is broke, hydraulics' failing, all the crew is on the verge of death! We're are not gonna make it!!"

I might be a bit of a masochist for saying this but... Great game! Nothing better to relieve (and at the same time accumulate) stress than to try to keep all your little, cartoony friends alive and completing the mission objectives at the same time with a lot of things that can go wrong going wrong all at once.

Sounds like a modernized version of B-17 Queen of the Skies produced by Avalon Hill in the 80s. It was a single player board game that was quite rule heavy. One of my friends had it but we never played it. He had some other cool titles as well including Third Reich, Iliad, and plenty of other board games from the 70s-80s.

The idea of war is not to die for your country, it's to make the enemy die for his.

Cydonian Knight, I'm glad you're enjoying the game.  Like I said, it was well worth the $15.00 CDN.

I've had similar experiences.  

 

Just wait until your bomber explodes mid air after taking a flack hit to the bomb bay!

 

DeathMerchant, I just looked up the board game you mentioned.  Yes, Bomber Crew sounds remarkably similar.  They have a DLC called USAAF for Bomber Crew where you control a B-17.
