Summary: Like all flight sims this game is hell to set up. Only the most determined players should try. It starts right off with install problems. Activation is problematic. Then, you must set up your controllers profiles for the 300 or so game commands.
Summary: I'll start off by saying even on my old P4 desktop this game is still beautiful. However I must also say this game is not for the faint of heart to fly. If you have ever wonder what or how these planes operate in real life this flight sim is it. The controls mimic every aspect of those planes.
Summary: This game is designed as more of a simulator (such as Flight Simulator X) not as a fast paced "arcade style" in your face aerial combat game. The controls are complex, and game play true to life. My only complaint is the game want to use my Xbox controler instead of my Saitek x52 and rudder pedals.
Summary: Platinum is simply lock on and flaming cliffs 2 in a combine package. great intro game for the a-10... although the learning curve for the game is nothing compaired to DCS a-10c sim game. if you are looking for the average sim player to get in the air and shoot things easily, lock on is the one.
Summary: Lock On Platinum ... this is a two cd distribution, "lock-on", and "flaming cliffs2". the latter, is said to augment and improve the former. when installed, both seem "playable", for lack of a better term. this 'simulation' includes assets from 'russian', and 'american' aircraft inventories.
Summary: Looking for high intensity air combat? Lock On fills the skies with lots of opportunities to test your skills as a computer based fighter pilot. Good graphics and flight control, the rest is up to you.
Summary: The quality of the software is quite good. Nice graphics (much faster than microsoft simulator), very realistic. Good value for the price. But it's quite difficult to use all the airplanes devices. It's so realistic than you almost have to be a real figther pilot !
