Summary: I used to play Red Baron, but they didn't update it, so patching and buying patches was required. I'm glad I found RoF, because it is way better than Red Baron. The flight sim is realistic and the scenarios are the same. I didn't mind the learning curve and appreciate the programming with each increase in skill level. They regularly update the program and add scenarios and different aircraft. This is great fun.
Summary: When I first tried this game it wouldn't run. So I waited until they had a stabler version. I must admit the game is good, but that is what this is a game. It is very much like a FPS, it is not like a flight simulator, In fact a Jason Williams from 777 states: We'll make more announcements when we're ready. But you want straight talk so here it is. None of our current plans involv e further FM changes. We are focused on other parts of the project and BOS.
Summary: This is a casual review from a serious flight simmer. Have to agree the simulaytor has a lot of detail and a tremendous amount of work from 777 Studios developing the sim. ROF is in my top three of flight sims I have seen over the last 18 years of flight sim experience. Concerning the user manual there is one available for down load on ROF Web Sight in four or five languages. Because of the language barriers and interpretation for the languages the manual was postponed.
Summary: This sim has so many bugs its a shame. When neoqb sold it to 777 studios it went from OK to poor. There are continuing problems with game play. Video bugs, sound bugs and you have to pay for allmost everything of any interest. When you buy planes and maps they are still the property of 777 studios and you have to be granted permission to sell your -paid for- hanger.
Summary: Nice wwi flight sim but look around,. I found a key for this sim for 8.00 bucks after I bought this one so make sure to shop around. Still it is a excellent Sim and very happy with it even at the 30.00 price I paid.
