The game does not feature 4 player compatibility which is seen as a downside when compared the WDL Thunder Tanks. There are a few differences between the PS1 and PS2 versions. Along side the expected graphical upgrades in the ps2 version, there is also some simplification, all aircraft have infinite specials and bombs, and most are limited to carrying the standard Iron bombs only, with a few carrying special types of bombs. In the PS1 version, planes have limited special ammo, which can only be replenished via pickup, they also have a limited amount of bombs and can also carry more than one type of bomb by collecting pickups. There is also an extra HUD to display how many specials the player has remaining.
