Years ago I posted here asking about if this game would go on sale...I watched it for a while but it never really did so I went away.

Now I just remembered this game and came here in the homes it would now be a more respectable price...boy was I shocked.

Matrix, are you folks dumb or just stupid? $60 for a game this old is just poor business practice and shows that you are just greedy. You know how I found this game today? I when to your "Budget" game only to fine almost everything there at full pop...

Disgracefully...You are doing a huge disservice to the gaming community and developers by maintain such high and utterly moronic prices.

I'm reading Overy's new book on the strategic bombing campaign in WWII. I just stumbled across this game and was tempted to buy it. But I'll admit that the sticker price for a game this old is making me think twice.

How good is this game? Is the game this good?

It's the only one on this subject, so you're stuck with it, I'm afraid. It's about 90% of what it should be.

The only one?

I recall playing B-17 Bomber on my neighbor's Intellivision.

@BROJD

You might want to post on some of the forums haunted by strategy gamers (grognards cough cough) and see if someone will part with their copy for a few bucks.

I don't recommend that anyone pay for this game as is. I moved over to this from the Talonsoft version and in 23 turns of a PBEM game found a dozen game breaking bugs.

The patch for the known bugs is 5 years over due and everyone connected with it is AWOL. It will not get fixed by Matrix and they ignore any attempt at contact.

This is a great game and I recommend buying it on sale. WITW that was just released is much more modern and advanced air simulator, but only from 43 onward. So I still play this for all my BOB/Eagle Day needs.
