Secret Weapons Over Normandy [PC Game]
Developed by: Totally Games - LucasArts (2003) - Flight Combat Sim - Rated: Teen
Secret Weapons Over Normandy features 20 authentic World War II aircraft in a series of 30 air-to-air and air-to-ground missions.
Inspired by LucasArts' original Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe, released in 1991 for computers, players become members of an
ace squadron that is given the most harrowing assignments in the war. Players will engage in 15 combat theaters, taking them
from Europe and the Eastern Front to North Africa, China-Burma-India, and the Pacific. Developer Totally Games draws from its
experience in creating the popular Star Wars: X-Wing series for this project, offering a similar structure of cinematic storytelling,
notable characters, and intense dogfights and bombing runs.
The action takes place over a period of four years, where players will become active participants in such infamous battles as the
Evacuation of Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, Operation Sea Lion, Battle of Midway, and the D-Day invasion. Flyable aircraft
includes the P-38 Lightning, the P-51 Mustang, the Me 163 Komet, the Me 262, and the B-17 Flying Fortress. To further draw
players into the game, sound effects were re-created using actual field recordings of aircraft flown during the time period. Voice
acting is performed by Will Lyman, narrator of the PBS television series Frontline, and international film star Mako, who provides
the game's Japanese Imperial dialect. Rounding out the list of features is the ability to enlist a friend, for cooperative play or for
competitive dueling, in a variety of multiplayer modes.
From the Manufacturer: Flight combat game designed by Totally Games and Larry Holland, the creative force behind the 1991
classic Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe. In the role of Chase, an American pilot serving with the RAF at the start of the Dunkirk
evacuation, players jump into the cockpits of more than 20 different aircraft, including Japanese Zekes, German Messerschmidts
and English Spitfires. They're all brought to life with realistic engine sounds, handling and weapon payloads. To balance the
extreme realism of the airplanes, the game allows players limited freedom to select the aircraft they want for a particular
mission --once they've been unlocked -- upgrade different parts of the plane and select specific secondary weapons.
Special Features: Immerse yourself in intense WWII flight action as you make your way through the ranks of an elite fighter
squadron; fly more than twenty realistic aircraft across a variety of combat theaters over world war II europe and other
territories as you make your way through the ranks of an elite fighter squadron; engage in over thirty action packed missions
featuring air to air and air to ground battle scenarios.
