Reception[edit]

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences nominated WWII Fighters for its 1998 "Simulation Game of the Year" award, although it lost to Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit.[1]

WWII Fighters was the runner-up for Computer Gaming World's 1998 "Best Simulation" award, which ultimately went to European Air War. The editors wrote, "Jane's WWII Fighters was a very, very close runner-up. Unmatched aircraft graphics, amazing special effects, top-notch AI, and accurate flight modeling really pulled you into the experience. Multiplayer on Jane's Combat.net is a blast". However, the magazine presented the game with a special achievement award for its musical score.[2]
