The aviation-themed massively multiplayer game Heroes in the Sky promises to steal your time, whether you have only 10 minutes to dabble or a whole day to immerse yourself in its world.

Based on the "free-to-play" model, Heroes boasts a bustling community to interact with, both on the official website and around your in-game airbase, where you manage your aircraft, equipment, and your function as a member of either the Allies or the Axis.

Starting in the prewar years, you begin as a young European crop duster flying a biplane when your village, sacrificed as a counter-intelligence decoy by the Allies, is razed by a Nazi air squadron. While fleeing for your life, you commandeer a downed but flight-worthy Allied fighter plane and take bloody revenge in the skies. When approached by a mercenary air group, you must decide whether to blame the Allies or the Axis for the event that has driven you to war.

Once you select your craft from a score of fighters, bombers, and gun-bristling support planes, you can engage in solo or multiplayer missions in which you tackle computer or player-controlled opponents on land, air, and sea. You can choose from entirely self-contained engagements that can take as little as a few minutes, or participate in massive, objective-driven missions that count toward a full-scale multiplayer reenactment of the war's air campaigns. This flexibility in time and energy demanded by the game makes it a great title to keep on hand.

This free game is not a hard sell, but those who are expecting a perfectly finished, video-card breaking extravaganza will be disappointed. However, if you are on a budget or don't have a top-of-the-line gaming computer, Heroes will likely run just fine on your system. Check this title out on, and have fun on the high road to hell!
