Paramount Pictures announced the release of "Flying Legion Air Combat Challenge." This free, downloadable game, based on the upcoming movie "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, puts players in the cockpit as a member of aviator Joseph Sullivan's (aka Sky Captain) Flying Legion. Players will take control of their own fast and agile P-40 Warhawk to defend the world against the mysterious Totenkopf and his mechanical monsters. You can get the game by following the download tab above. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow will be released in theaters everywhere on September 17th, 2004.

From June 25th, contestants can register on the movie site, a link to which is available by following the download tab above, to download the Air Combat Challenge. Pilots will have five weeks to perfect their skills and on August 2nd the Air Combat Challenge tournament begins. The three week contest will pit contestants against
one another for a chance to win an all inclusive trip to the London premiere of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow this October and achieve the ultimate Sky Captain accolade.

The game is broken up into four levels. In level one, pilots must navigate through New York and destroy the Giant Robots. In level two players take to the skies and battle the Flying Wings that are attacking the city. Level three takes place underwater, as your plane becomes submersible and you join the Amphibious Squadron - a specialized fleet
of planes designed to combat under the sea in battle against the Giant Mechanized crabs that roam the ocean floor.

Throughout each level, pilots must destroy enemies while making laps around courses based on the New York skyline and an environment based underwater. Points are awarded to pilots based on the quickest times and the number of enemies damaged or killed. As players achieve better scores, they can secure credits, which can be used to purchase, engine,
wing and weapon upgrades.

The final level featuring battle around Commander Cook's (Angelina Jolie)Flying Fortress will be released a few weeks prior to the cinematic release of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow on September 17th.

Taking place in an alternative reality; set in a future that might have been, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow tells the story of ace aviator Sky Captain, (Jude Law) and reporter Polly Perkins, (Gwyneth Paltrow) as they risk their lives trying to stop the evil Dr. Totenkopf from destroying the earth. The film also features Angelina Jolie as
Commander Frank Cook and Giovanni Ribisi as Dex, the technical genius of Sky Captain's flying legion. Featuring state-of-the-art special effects never seen before, this groundbreaking achievement in film is the brainchild of writer/director Kerry Conran, in collaboration with producer Jon Avnet.

To bring a striking similarity between the world the filmmakers envisioned and the game itself, Paramount Pictures and Blitz DS Games recreated models and digital elements from the original movie assets, as well as created several custom tools and processes to create the game.

For shit sakes, is this some kind of crummy joke! I too downloaded the game and had a goob load of f***ing trouble trying to register through that Paramount crap. Did it bout 10 times.Issue #1 registering doesn't work when submiting through Opera's browser and #2 After SUBf**kinSCRIBING through IE, launching the game it says that my username and password don't much! Well, to be honest with ya, this shit stain from Paramount and what's in my knickers right now don't much either, but this simply jus sucks. Think I'll jus simply go off now and rub my pussy somewhere in the dark, than continue with this crap ☺ ☺ ☺

Wow, a game that has a small pontential now has almost no potential. The first issue to address on my bitch-list is mapping control. I can't change the key structure so I don't have to use my damn mouse? That's just immoral these days. My largest complaint, to summarize it all, is that there is NO way to post messages or tell the game creators what they've f**ked up on. If you were releasing updates, doesn't public opinion matter? There's no way they could know everything that they need to fix, even though it's not a complicated game whatsoever. So if you're reading this and haven't downloaded it, I recommend you don't until they have better support for the game and there are a shitload of updates. Anyone else agree? I though so.

Even if everyone is saying it suck... I would still like to try it myself.But this f***ing thing won't recognize my e-mail & password.Then it says retrieval, but in fact its only a password change page. So this means I can't even know what password IT thinks I have.When you are doing bullshit work, it would still be appreciated if people could try it.

I'm with you guys here. Spent all night downloading, and then found that a username and password are required?!? WHAT THE f**k??? Paramount should burn in the fiery pits of anal leakage! Now, I wouldn't have had any problem with this whole scenario, but they won't even accept any new registrations now! They now have a free game out there for all to download, but nobody's allowed to play it. f**king assholes.
