    Wings of Prey is a WWII combat simulator where you can re-live the action-packed scenarios of Europe in the skies. Fly through a campaign or create your own custom training missions and gasp at the beautiful environments while tailing your nemesis.

    Conclusion:
    Wings Of Prey ran perfectly the first time I played. Remember to change the resolution in the launcher to match your Linux Desktop. This way it will play in fullscreen. Performance was great on my GeForce GTX 1060. Even my old Logitech flight stick worked perfectly. I was able to configure it for analog flight controls.
