Textures look amazing from higher ranges, but lower altitudes show the pixelation and sparseness of terrain in the maps. However, in important battlefield areas, the terrains are busied with buildings, enemy machines, and varied elevations.
With over seven different viewpoints and an infinite number of angles to view from, there is not a minute where you cannot see the action. Even though this takes away from the realism of flying alongside a squadron in your cockpit, it makes for excellent real-time cinematics. The camera even glares any time it stares into the sunlight, aircraft and other vehicles and buildings visibly show damage, and most cockpit commands echoed with some button switching.
The opening and selection screens to Attack Squadron feature music straight from an early 1940's radio show. The happy nostalgia sets the feel for the time and place. In-game, the music switches feel and creates a tense battle-ready atmosphere, setting the tone for Attack Squadron.
