Summary: Easily one of the best combat flight sims ever published when combined with the free add-on Pat Wilson's Campaign Generator (PWCG). Superb feeling of flight and the best WWI plane models available at the time of this writing.
Summary: When the game was initially released back in 2009, it was limited and arguably incomplete. But in the years since, it has turned into the current standard for how to do a combat flight sim. It has the best SP play around, putting even IL2:BoS (based off it) to shame.
Summary: The very best WWI flight sim available! The planes are great, they all fly with their own characteristics. If you haven't ever played flight sims before, you will Love this after a modest learning curve. The graphics are great and game play is smooth.
Summary: Rise of Flight is an amazing sim. Forget all the negative reviews about what it is lacking, how expensive it is to add content, etc. This game is nothing like the original 2009 release, and it is fairly valued.
Summary: The best WWI flight sim out there. So many details. Beautiful planes, flight model, and so many details. Fly either single or two seaters. Two seater missions as never before. Call in artillery. Fly armed escorts. And, of course PWCG. What's not to love:). (Visit the forum and this will make sense).

Summary: I have been using Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War - Iron Cross (RoF) daily for the past six months and I have a lot of flight time on its planes. So, it is with amazement that I read some of the negative and IMHO totally uninformed and may I say stupid reviews of RoF.
Been Flying Sims since 1984...This is best ever!! Not for Wimps!!

Summary: I've bought about ever flight sim that has been on the market since they started making them and this is the best one I've ever seen. In all these years I've noticed that flight sims come in a couple main categories...
Summary: Some of the earlier reviews are out of date and should be re-evaluated. In May 2011 the developer released the 1.019 superpatch that added a dynamic campaign to the game and the game has been extremely stable on my machine. This at no extra cost to the customers who already paid.
Summary: Other reviews have touched on the excellent graphics and flight/damage modeling in Rise of Flight; suffice it to say, they are among the best available in any historical flight simulator (only the recently release IL-2: Cliffs of Dover is comparable).
Summary: Rise of Flight is a first rate flight sim and probably the best all around World War One sim currently available. The graphics are outstanding, and the developer has included a number of scaling options to fit a wide range of PCs. Any standard joystick will work fine for controls.
