Wings is not the old unreleased (though widely traded) Amiga WWI-flight simulator by Cinemaware: it's yet another of those Finnish games about flying little (usually v-shaped) ships around in a cave, properly armed for a violent bout of skill... in the best Sopwith tradition. Essentially, Wings is a multiplayer game, though you can play alone, rescuing your troopers and then returning to a landing pad, or deathmatching a lacklustre AI. It's rather boring, though, compared to fighting your friends, which on the other hand is tremendously entertaining.

The package includes: A nice variety of weapons, including the ingenious, legendary Harpoon; A selection of different ships – though not that different; Up to eight players simultaneously, up to four humans on one PC – via serial cable or modem; Uncompromised playability, with properly customisable options to suit your ship-blasting needs; Lots of good levels, and a converter to create your own out of bitmaps.

Presentation has given away to playability, with graphics being not bad but rather functional. The SFX department neither impresses nor lets down. The music's mostly sub-average (with a few decent tunes), but the fact you can stuff the music directory with your favourite .MODs and .S3Ms makes up for it.
