Description of Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain

Shortly after the release of Battlehawks 1942, Lucasarts released this game, which is essentially the same as Battlehawks, only this time the action happens in Europe, having the British and the Germans fighting for supremacy.

The same sprite problems remain, but the graphics look cleaner in this version. The same flight modelling is still around, preferring ease of use to accuracy. Get this if you liked Battlehawks. Highly recommended!

Played this game on my Radio Shack 286 and 386...spent hours on it. found the joystick provided a fairly realistic response. never found anything to match it in an air battle, although flight simulator is decent for flying. helped shorten my north Canadian winters for several years.

Anyone have an actual scan of the cipher wheel?

In the late 80's, I had a 286 pc, DOS based, and LOVED this game. Happy to find it again!!!

Sad thing is this is still the best game that offers a campaign mode during the Battle of Britain. Planning from the German side to destroy the airfields and radar or defending as the British.
Of course the graphics are aged but the playability can't be beaten.
Only downside is the Amiga version is SLOW, The PC version is much smoother with better graphics.

The controls are screwed up. In flight, you have to hit a key several times to get it to work. I have tried adjusting the processor speed, but all that does is speed the game up to an unplayable level. I am not saying it does not work, and I am using a keyboard, maybe a joystick would work, I can not say. But it is very annoying playing the game using the keyboard.

It keeps asking to insert disk 2 ? Then exits.
