Operation Overlord is the third game from Rowan Software, a small British developer that remains today one of the best "hard-core" flight sim companies. In this excellent World War II sim, it is your job as an Allies pilot to succeed in destroying the German forces occupying Northern France in Operation codenamed "Overlord", the air campaign leading up to D-Day.

True to Rowan's reputation of simulating not-so-well-known aircraft, Overlord gives you the opportunity to fly the Typhoon 18, The Mustang III, and the Spitfire IX. Aside from excellent and varied mission selection and realistic flight dynamics, Overlord enters gaming history as one of the very first flight sims to make use of the brand new S3 graphics chipset, which allows doubling the screen resolution from 300 x 200 pixels to an amazing 600 x 400. The result is a game that looks good and plays even better. Remains to this day one of the best (and most underrated) WWII flight sims that was well ahead of its time. Highly recommended.
