Blazing Angels: Squadron's Of WW II The Arcade Cabinet

This may be widely available out there, in some forgotten arcade Shangri-la - a land of plentiful cabinets and quarters - but in the work-a-day, arcade-free world I live in I've never seen it.

For $US2 Australian would-be fighter pilots can climb into this cabinet and play a bit of Ubisoft's Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII.

I had always thought that Ubisoft's 2006 World War II flight sim didn't extend its reach past the consoles it hit in 2006 and 2007, but apparently Global VR released this arcade version in 2008.

The cabinet includes surround sound, some pretty neat paint and lighting effects, a sharp rumble in the seat when you get shot and, unfortunately, occasional frame rate issues.


    Im all for arcade games and I honestly liked Blazing Angels 1 despite being panned by critics, but s third person air combat game sounds uncomfortable to play at being stuck in front of it with a joystick. Not to mention the way the planes control in Blazing Angels.
