Knights in the Sky
by mik m. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/17/2018 10:50:37

My friend bought Hunters in the sky. It is the only game in the series I have played. I then bought Knights in the sky and Mig hunters. This game provides the ability to play WW1 aircraft games in a simple but not too simple game which actualy allows you to get on someones tail and shoot them down. The three titles I have mentioned use the same system scaled to suit the time period and allowing for technology growth. The game is easy and fun to play, with optional advanced rules. When you can play Knights of the air you can play Hunters in the sky or Mig hunters. I had to buy Mach speed hunters to complete the set and give me the opertunity to play in any time period. Mach speed hunters is a bit more complex having to allow for radar and missile combat but having played hunters in the sky for a total of about 3.5 hrs I am confident I could play any of the four sets without trouble. My recomendation is buy them all. Mik Marandola

Special Forces

Simplistic & enjoyable. A simple D6 system (also incorporated into the weapons fire-power).

Some nice weapon pics here and there. The system gives more actions to the higher class troops (elites: 3, Regulars: 2, etc). There's also command range rules. A small section on vehicles (but no vehicle list), as they are handled in a generic way (soft or armoured).

To some people it may seem incomplete compared to other more complicated or detailed systems, but as the text said: emphasis on game-play.

A list of generic weapon types are given (SMG, assault rifle, etc), but no actual weapon names (M16, SA-80, etc). I'm supposing they all have the same characteristics.

All in all quite worth the price (£2.85).

Can't currently download, so I can't leave an accurate evaluation.

Simplistic, incomplete, but a good foundation to build upon. If you want a lengthy, detailed, rules system, this is not it. If you enjoy taking a basic system, and fleshing it out, then this is a system you can do just that with. Overall, it's good for what it is, and at its present price. It is suitable for plastic army men figures, readily available. Cheers!<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Low cost.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Thank you for your comments. You are correct that SF is a simple system. There are many extremely complicated, extremely detailed modern infantry rules sets out there... SF is definately not one of them. :) It is designed for fast, easy play, and I'm glad to hear that you find it acceptable as such. Future supplements will add to the core rules ("One Shot, One Kill" Sniper supplement is in the works at present), and provide more detail.

I'm an air game nut but I didn't have an acceptable WWI game. I like detailed air combat games, but wanted a simpler WWI game. I've tried a couple of others but found them wanting overall. To be honest, I didn't expect a lot from this game either, but the price was right so I gave it a whirl ? what a very pleasant surprise! The basic game is good enough to introduce newbies to air combat, but with all the optional & advanced rules this is actually quite a good game. I get the feeling that the author really wanted to put out a great game, and he succeeded IMO. Down the road I?ll probably be buying the two jet versions of the game also. I sincerely recommend these rules. <br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Most everything. I have some differences of opinion on some of the aircraft ratings, but I have that with every game I own.

<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Nothing serious really<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Thanks for your kind comments, Randy. I hope you have fun with the game. By all means feel free to adjust any aircraft ratings to your taste. I used a set of formulas to calculate the aircraft stats from real-world data, but accurate data for WWI aircraft is very hard to come by. I have tried to keep the stats as close to reality as possible.
