    This game would have to be pretty far from what B17's actually did in order to be fun.

    Destructobot has a point. Afterall, B17s are primarily bombers. If every mission in the game is about bombing something, it will get dull fast. Still, I hope this will turn out contradictory to what I expect.

    There was a game named this on the PC yeeeeeeears ago...and you took off spent aaaaaaaaages getting to the bomb run dropped sum bombs got shot at by about four planes which u could fire back at by selecting the gunners in the B-17 then usually you would get shot down...it was very very dull lets hope it isnt a remake of that one!

    This game isnt good. Its bloody terrible, awful awful game. Its by DSI so if you know their standards you know you're in for a bad time as all of their games are like bad GBA homebrew titles.

    Deleted this straight away.

    I know you should'nt judge something by it's cover but just look at it! Plus the developer is clearly one of those crappy budget ones.

    Previous DSI Titles:

    Deal or No Deal

    Wiffle Ball

    Horrible games that looked like they were made within a week. They also have a Betty Boop game on the go & Original Frisbee Disc Sports.

    I haven't played one of those games and hated it. Then again, I've only played one of those games (M&Ms), and it was halfway decent.

    DSI = BAD BAD BAD! (Maybe deal or no deal won't be so bad though since there is no way you can screw up a game that involes opening a case and saying deal or no deal). I really see this company giving the ds a mini bad name with casual gamers because if you look at every game on the list posted above me (with the exception of snood 2 and chicken shoot) they are all games I can see people buying their kids for a present because of the titles alone and how most would be decent in the hands of a good company "Hey I used to play wiffle ball as a kid so let's pick that up"

    I have no idea how much they sell for but if DSI makes themselves a budget company and sells their games for under $20 then they can make a real killing

    DSI - Don't Sell It

    Big Mutha Truckers wasn't that bad in the end (on both DS and GBA).

    Was that some sort of joke?

    Oh yeah Wade Huxton wasn't too bad.

    Someone mentioned DS Air, theres no release date for it yet but the Japanese version "Jet Impulse" was pretty damn good. Fingers crossed that Nintendo are bringing it to us.

    Please mention three good DSI titles for me, then.

    DSI sucks, and they always will.
