Summary: Ok first of all, let me tell you the game works fine. It didn't crash on my system, and it didn't crash on two of my other computers (one of them only runs on a PII 400 mhz). I think the problem lies with the user. During installation, DO NOT install the A3D drivers. It's just common sense.
Summary: This game is probably the most realistic flight sim I've ever played. It looks like every switch, dial, and control that was on the real B-17 is accurately reproduced in this game, and all of them are fully functional with the click of a mouse button.
Summary: I had another B-17 game some years ago. This one is significantly different. This is a real challenge! First, the instrumentation and interior graphics are very good. They could be improved by allowing the flyer to operate the flight deck controls with the mouse, but that is nitpicking.
Summary: B-17 Flying Fortress is a good game for several reasons. It has great historical accuracy. It has real targets that were of importance to the 8th airforce at that time. Some of the game modes are:1) Bomber campaign. In this, you command a B-17, and 10 men who flew it.
Summary: I love this game! Technical glitches aside (in my opinion, minor), the graphics and playability are excellent, if you have the patience to learn how to fly the plane. This game is best suited for students of military history or who love the B-17 (and I fit both those descriptions being an Army...
Summary: Also ich muss sagen, dieses Spiel begeistert mich immer mehr. Die Atmosphäre ist absolut Atemberaubend. Nur leider läuft das Spiel mit der Zeit immer langsamer und der Flug bis zum Ziel dauert so lange. Aber die Leute aus WK2 hatten ja nicht mal einen Zeitraffe ;) wieso also rummeckern.
Summary: Vor diesem Spiel habe ich nur sehr selten Simulationen gespielt aber dieses Spiel hat mich zum Simulationsjunkie gemacht. Zunächst ist es sehr lobenswert, dass der Budgetvariante sowohl Handbuch als auch Referenzkarte beiliegen..
