Tom's Review: Dear ma, Today I spent an hour trying to hitch a gun to a truck. It kept coming loose. War is hell. Then I transfered to a squadrom of Spitfires out of Cambrai. We got lost because the map is broken. Then I had to ditch when the ground warped into me while I was strafing some dots that might have been Germans. Now I'm assigned to a tank. This is much better, even though I spend most of my time wondering whether I should downshift and sort of talking to my squadmates in the short barks that fit on the radio interface. Luckily, the war is always ending soon since the servers don't seem to last very long. I should be home by Christmas. Actually, at this rate, I'll be home by Thanksiving. Maybe even Halloween. Or Labor Day.
