Summary: I've got a shelf full of FirstClass aircraft, but this is the one I keep coming back to. If you just want to leap in to the air in a easy to master airplane, then please look elsewhere... You may need several destructive take-off attempts before making it into the blue with the trim set just right. I like putting in the effort and feeling the satisfaction of simply making a circuit around a lake and making it back to the aerodrome in one piece.
Summary: After previously owning a cheap flight simulator (similar to Microsofts) I found this to be an excellent way up. I'll admit, it does take someone with a bit of expierience to really 'master' the flying, but its still fun and enjoyable learning different techniques. To get the most out of the game, you really need a joystick so that the planes movments are accurate, and of course to simulate the likeness.
Summary: This bundle was great value for money. The combat flight sim itself is a great game with amazing detailed scenery and aircraft, but it was the 2 add-on's that made this game complete. As well as the WWII aircraft (including the Zepplin airship) there are many modern aircraft, for instance the new euro fighter which is great fun to fly and the RAF Tornado. This is one of those games you can play for hours and hours without getting bored.
Summary: Getting all these together is a real coup! I got them all separately, but the whole lot adds up to an amazingly big package covering a mass of simulation possibilities for WW2 Europe. Not only that, there is a wealth of great planes in general, pre and post war types in the 2 expansions. These were the first expansions that I got for CFS, and they are great together. First off, CFS1 is a very good WW" flight sim.

Summary: Starting with Combat flight Sim (CFS);a slightly more advanced version of the FS98 program (gone are the satellite mapped ground features), with better graphic textures, but more limited area to fly in. It is a very good WW2 fighter experience, the planes ranging from passible in their looks, to very pleasing (the Spitfire and P47d have funny wings, but the FW190 is superb).
Summary: I absolutly loved FS95 so i bought FS98 when that came out, FS 2000 however was a dog even on my 1ghz amd Atholon it ran like a tortoise on caffine, I was very sceptical about buying 2002 but i took the risk! WOW this sim is amazing it totally blows away Flight Unlimited 3 and Fly 2( which in my mind were the leading civillian aircraft sims) Amazingly it runs much faster than FS2000 due to Microsoft using the Combat Flight SIM 2 engine!
Summary: I've been a fan of FSim since 97. With each release it has always improved, although framerates have tended to go down. However if you haven't upgraded yet DO SO. This is just amazing! It looks great, the ATC is very good and it is very smooth. It looks nothing like FS2000, which in my opinion was a bit of a beta release. The autogenerated scenery at last gives a feeling of height when near the ground too. Go buy!
Summary: well, what can i say, i have never seen a product so good as this. it is well polished with plenty of instruction lessions if , like me, you haven't got a clue about flying any aircraft. it isn't long before you are up in the air and away. the graphics on this must be seen, along with the air traffic control, the realism is something else! a great piece of learning software, think it will be some years before i try the real thing though!
