Combat Flight Simulator 3

Auracore MediaWorks
15 July 2005
  • Summary: All the excitement of a Hornet, but slower than the Wright Flyer.
  • Pros: Excellent presentation all around; stunning graphics with great aircraft models and terrain; sound effects that will blow you away; a remarkable reproduction of history that allows you to re-write the events of WWII.
  • Cons: Controls are complex and will take some time to get used to.

  • Conclusion: A solid sequel but very heavy system demands and an unwelcoming approach to newcomers spoil it from being a great simulation.

  • Excerpt: Microsoft’s latest “Combat Flight Simulator 3” makes quite a statement in its title. Can it live up to it? In this latest installment of of the MS Combat flight simulator series you can take control of 24 aircrafts from three different countries. Which will range from huge bombers to prop fighters, and even a few of the earliest jet airplanes.

Combat Flight Simulator 3: Battle for Europe Review

GameSpot
25 October 2002
  • Excerpt: You may fondly remember games from 10 or even 20 years ago, but the fact is, by today's higher standards, most of those classic games aren't much fun. That's not to say that they had no real impact at the time, because the best classic games aspired to new heights with what now seems like limited technology, and the gameplay of classic series evolved based on the idea that new games should offer more than last year's game with better graphics.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Conclusion: CFS3 isn't the final word in flight sims, but it is a good game. While it is surpassed by IL2-Sturmovik in a few technical areas, for a combination of beautiful graphics and good gameplay, you really can't go past Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3.

Combat Flight Simulator 3: Battle For Europe

Gamecell

  • Conclusion: As an interesting aside, I dusted off the original version of Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulator and installed it to compare how Microsoft's Combat Sim series has moved on in the past few years. Well guess what - I found that CFS1, which also covers the European Air War, has almost as many different aircraft types to fly, the ground textures are crisp and sharp, the cockpits look better, and it runs like lightning on my machine.
  • Pros: Good choice of different types of missions., Excellent control interface., Some graphical effects, such as aircraft damage, look really good…
  • Cons: …However, some effects, such as ground and cockpit detail, do not!, Runs appallingly on low to mid range systems., Even on high-end systems it needs a lot of tweaking., Overall programming and presentation is poor.

Combat Flight Simulator 3 : Bataille pour l'Europe

JeuxVideo.fr

  • Excerpt: Toujours très inspiré dans ce domaine, Microsoft remet le couvert pour un troisième volet de sa célèbre simulation de combat aérien. Plus joli, plus complexe, Combat Flight Simulator 3 est aussi moins accessible aux novices que ses prédécesseurs.

Combat Flight Simulator 3: Battle for Europe

Outerspace
25 July 2004
  • Conclusion: Combat Flight Simulator 3 é um produto com excelente potencial, mas que parece ter sido lançado às pressas para pegar as vendas de fim de ano. Se a Microsoft lançar um patch que corrija os principais bugs, então poderá se tornar um jogo de grande qualidade, na mesma categoria do Combat Flight Sim 2, atendendo a um público mais amplo. Quanto ao público mais restrito (entusiastas e detalhistas) recomendamos que esperem pelo lançamento de Forgotten Battles..
  • Pros: Ótima escolha de aviões pilotáveis: P-51D, Spitfire, B-25, B-26, Ju-88, os primeiros jatos (Me-262, P-80 etc.);, Campanha Dinâmica: o campo de batalha parece bem vivo e dinâmico, unidades aliadas e inimigas seguem em suas missões independentes do que você faz, como se fosse uma pequena 'guerra em miniatura' ocorrendo dentro do seu PC;, Modelagem dos aviões em 3D é ótima, e conta com excelentes 'skins';, Nuvens impressionantes e variadas; condições climáticas variadas;...
  • Cons: Gráficos do terreno e oceano escuros, sem vida e mal-texturizados;, Bugs que pesam negativamente na jogabilidade (anti-aérea atinge você através de casas, árvores e morros, etc.);, Demora muito para acontecer algo na campanha (ou seja, as missões ficam muito tempo sendo as mesmas: afundar navios, bombardear fábrica, interceptar intrusos);, Pesado, muito pesado, comedor de memória e recursos. Prepare-se para dar uma boa limpada no seu sistema antes de rodá-lo;, Jogatin...
