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.
