Summary: Game is super hard to learn, but really fun when you do. Have lots of time to put toward learing this game. I do have to say that even for an older game the graphics are still very exceptable for todays standards. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get into combat sims.
Summary: There are a LOT of real pilots using this because it is the closest you can get to actually being in a real flight simulator. It takes time to learn all of the controls but once you do---WOW!!
Summary: Lock On Platinum is an awesome game. It's not an arcade type game, it is a true simulation and with that it is a bit complicated to learn. As usual if all fails read the manual, right! I would suggest reading the manual first, or at least referencing it. It doesn't come with a manual but you can find it online. You can fly pre-programmed missions or create your own.
Summary: This sim is ok but needs some work to fix the issues running it. I have 3 gaming pc's and I have issues on all three with this sim.It will run ok some of the time and then it has issues,maybe I need to find the rest of the patches that are more than likely out for this sim.It is cool and the graphics are ok but not as good as rise of flight or a10 warthog.
Summary: First I must admit I haven't taken the time to learn how to play the game yet. That could take a long time. I'm just including here some notes and first impressions, while I'm still young, that I hope readers will find informative. This is no casual game with which you may start to play immediately. It has a steep learning curve. I found 498 manual pages in 3 PDF files. So if you prefer hard copy manuals you'd better start saving your ink and paper now.
