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: 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.
Summary: This is really Cheesy. Not sure where anyone is getting this high resolution ground views.. or targets? This reminds me of a video game from the early 1980s... like a Nintendo or something. Really cheesy and not well thought out. Waste.
Summary: As another reviewer has noted, the P-51 (and all other aircraft, for that matter) fly like bricks tied to anchors. Graphics are fuzzy, rendering is absolutely glacial (even on an i7 with 8 gigs of memory and a 2gig nVidia card). Save your money.
Summary: Years ago I had an early version of the microsoft combat game and it worked super on a windows 95. i now have a windows 7 with a logitech ext.3d joystick. I had great hopes when i loaded up this game,boy was I dissapointed when I tried to fly a legendary Mustang. The aircraft couldnt climb and do a loop no matter how fast i was going. It turned like a oil tanker ,and couldnt go very fast even flying straight and level. Then i tried the P-80,it flew no better.
Summary: CFS 3 is a terrible flight simulator. The only reason I purchased it was that it was required in order to fly Over Flanders Fields which is a WWI flight simulator. Over Flanders Fields uses some of the files connected with CFS 3 but is a separate simulator in its own right. Over Flanders Fields transformes CFS 3 into an exciting realistic full scale World War One simulator that is probably the best WWI flight simulator currently available.
