Reception[edit]

Samuel Bass reviewed the PC version of the game for Next Generation, rating it one star out of five, and stated that "Scuttled before it can even get off the runway, B-17 is simply a betrayal of Microprose's fans."[8]

The game received "favorable" reviews according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[2]
