A new release has come and gone, and with it, a first batch of reviews. This time, the critics take a look at Secret Weapons Over Normandy. Here we go...<:MORENEWS:>
GameSpy gives the title 4 out of 5 stars, saying that "Normandy is the opposite of realistic in too many ways to count, and that's what makes it fun... everything is geared toward ease of play and the thrill of conflict." GameSpy also praises the game's level design and live orchestral score.
Gaming Age gives the new Larry Holland game a B+. "In short," the reviewer writes, "Secret Weapons Over Normandy looks very good, it's just not a graphical powerhouse. It looks more like an old WWII movie than a summer blockbuster, which fits perfectly... The story is interesting, well told and serves as the perfect excuse to get into the cockpit of the era's most famous aircraft."
IGN gives the game a reasonable 8.0 out of 10. "First and foremost," the four-page article states, "Secret Weapons attempts to bridge the gap between historical accuracy and arcade sensibility... LucasArts can realize much higher returns on their investment development with the PS2 and Xbox versions and it's apparent that that's the target for this game."
Secret Weapons Over Normandy is in stores now for the PC, PS2, and Xbox.
