First Associate BAD second good!

Summary: I ordered the MS CFS 3 from this vendor but after waiting nearly two weeks I emailed the vendor to inquire about my order. I never heard back from him. Finally, I gave up on this vendor and ordered the MS flight simulation from another Amazon associate. I also contacted Amazon and they promptly issued a credit for my missing first order - typical of Amazon they do business the way it should be done. Now they just need to get rid of associates who give them a bad name.
Summary: As a long-time "veteran" of Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulators, I was really hopeful that this version would top Sim 1 and Sim 2. Sadly, I was disappointed. I really enjoy 1 and 2, but this game has too many "options" and doesn't work well with any of the operating systems (XP, Win 7 & 8) that I've tried it with. Of the three combat flight sims that Microsoft produced, the Pacific theater Sim 2 is the best...in my opinion.
Summary: great old game, unfortunately the graphics are a little low in comparison to newer games but what can you expect from a 12 year old game? lots of fun, g-forces, blacking out, fuel loss from getting hit, engine dies mid flight from getting shot up its a good game & for those who don't want to die you can simply go into your settings & make yourself almost invincible , or if you need unlimited ammo you can also get that.
Summary: If you have Win8 don`t waste your money as it barely worked and crashed constantly on win xp. win vista and win 95 they never came up with decent fix. Chose a ubisoft game if you want a good air combat sim and stay away from this one.
