Reviews and Problems with Rise of Flight – Channel Battles Edition
Showing 1-5 of 5
23 May 2014
Summary: I am sick and tired of developers who try to nickel and dime me to death by charging absurd amounts of money for DLC that should have been included in the original game. It will literally cost you hundreds of dollars to get the content necessary to make this the complete game that it should be.
Summary: I gave this game a 3 because the "flight" aspect of it is impressive in it's own way, the "battle" end of the equation is a different matter. The main plane you are forced to fly during all but a few of the allied missions was either poorly thought out, as the top of the windscreen cuts right through the gunsight rendering it unusable, or cleverly done to encourage you to buy on of the several pricey (50% of the cost of the main game) DLC packs.
Summary: Best Flightsim currently available. The Flightmodel is superb and better than any other on the market. You have to learn the ropes but you will be awarded the true thrills of a WWI dogfight. Dig out your old joystick and in a week you will order a rudder and a throttle (ending up with a home as I did). This game is a must for any serious flightsimmer. If FSX is about procedures and IL-2 about visual beauty, then ROF is about flying!
Summary: This is the best World War I flight simulator ever created. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is the best combat flight simulator ever created. The feeling of actually flying a plane is really here in this game. Each plane is it's own individual experience. Flying the Camel for example, is very different from flying the Se5a, which is totally different from flying an Albatros type. The damage model is very faithfully worked out as well.
Summary: Rise of Flight is a dynamic flight sim of the true beginning of Combat Flight. The immersion factor for this game, no this sim, is un measurable. From the two offline (single player) campaigns to the online multiplayer option with human against human and AI. The play and beauty of this sim is fantastic. The Channel map is only one of several maps you will find available for this master piece works. Fighters, recon, bombers, seaplanes, you name it.
