Bomber Crew Review
Posted: 10 months ago, last updated 9 months ago.
It’s a complex game because of the different aspects to master. There is the navigation and action of the bombing raids themselves. There is the wider strategy of managing which crew does what to keep your plane in the sky. Then there is bombing the target and managing fuel and damage of the plane.
You upgrade, customise and name your aircraft and can even add your own nose art. You have to get the right balance of reliability and fire-power is crucial for successful bombing raids. Then you recruit and train your crew from countless possible recruits. As you name, dress and train these individuals you build a team you will rely on. But if any of them should die during a raid, then you loose them for good. The bombing raids themselves mean you need to navigate through enemy fighters, flak and other deadly hazards to reach your target.

Rated PEGI 7 and expanded by the examiner: All crewmembers have a health bar. These diminish when the plane is shot. When all health is gone, they fall on the floor and you have some time to revive them. If you fail to revive the downed character, he dies. The character lays on the floor of your plane. No injury is shown. When injured or dead, a skull icon appears next to the character. The characters themselves are non-detailed and have a cartoony appearance.
When your plane crashes, it can either explode or disintegrate into pieces. There is a chance a few crewmembers survive this crash. In the de-briefing, these are shown as either KIA or MIA. However, you don’t see any wounded characters when the plane has crashed.
