Summary: I was getting tired of Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3, (CFS3) I had already done just about everything you could do on it, and I was ready for a better flight sim. I have spent many hours on CFS3 and Microsoft Flight Simulator X. I wanted a WWII combat flight sim, so I spent a lot of time looking them up on the internet and on Amazon.
Summary: I like this game because it is a true simulator in the fact that the airplanes fly like real airplanes. Being a real pilot, it is hard to find programs like this that are actually fairly realistic in terms of flight and airplane performance. So if you don't know how airplanes work or you're not a pilot, this game may provide you with a serious challenge. You can adjust the realism settings to make it easier to play and it is still just as fun.
Summary: If you got a joystick, this games a riot! Graphic's arn't half bad for it's age either! There's just something about pulling a trigger in an aircraft and watching things explode that feeds the wild side.
Summary: This is a fun flight simulator. Installs easily and has a lot of on-line help. After a bad day at the office this is much better than kicking the dog and provides a lot of tension relief. Blasting a few ME-109s out of the sky really gets the adrenaline going. Microsoft makes great simulators.
Summary: I've had this game for years. I've bought it several times to make up for losing copies, and it's been worth it every time. IL-2 Sturmovik finally replaced this in my collection, but for a quick, relatively realistic campaign this is far superior to IL-2's scripted campaigns. My PC is 6 years old, and with the age of this game it runs flawlessly.
Summary: My husband has been using flight sim's for years.This is very realistic he says and he enjoys it very much.He had used this before,but the disc chipped and he coud'nt find it for sale (new) anywhere.We went to Amazon on-line and you had it at a great price.He also uses the Flight Simulator X by Microsoft as well, with the acceleration expansion pack.However,he said that some reviews stated that the Combat Flight Simulator 3, either will crash or not run at all on the...
