Summary: Good but, not great. Graphics are a bit dated and control learning curve is a little steep. Not a game. This is good if you want to know how your uncle (well, maybe your great granddad, i am a bit older than most of you) really felt flying one of these icons of WWII.

Summary: Maybe I'm just not good at flying WWII fighters (yet), but I had trouble finding the enemy planes, and they shot me down before I could usually find them. I'm not a game player, and I bought this just because it was cheap and I wanted to see how well it worked with the Logitech 3D Pro Joystick. ...not as good as the MS Flight Simulator works with it. I think I would have preferred it if it had been for WWI.
Summary: The attacking enemy planes are SMALL, I tried for hours to shoot one down, no dice, I got shot down every time.They seem to have way more speed and control than the player's plane. No fun after a while, it's really a "How long can you last before you're shot down" kind of a deal, which has some entertainment value.
Summary: Combat Flight Simulator 3. My first real flight sim. I used to love it - it was all that I knew. Then I found that it was EXPANDABLE! I got the PTO Expansion, the ETO Expansion, the MAW Expansion, the Korean Theater Construction Set - all the freebies. Everything but OFF, Firepower, and D-Day. And I loved it. Now out of the box, it isn't quite worth it.
Summary: CFS3 is dated, compared to today's games, but is certainly no slouch when it comes to realism and challenge. Not for the casual gamer, CFS3 appeals to the same crowd that picks up the regular Flight Simulator series: virtual vicarious adventurers! CFS3 has a dynamic campaign that takes some getting used to but is a real gem.
Summary: The games run perfectly, everything is fine, but the only issue is when pressing F12 which pops up a window with controls options of the airplane, which contain vital information such as emergency procedure in case engine stops, but in order to read you need to scroll down to continue reading, but it does not work scrolling down or either clikcing the arrows.
