Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War - Iron Cross

Richard Barchfield, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • 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.

Best Flight Sim in 13 Years!

Thomas I. Witkowski, Amazon
15 June 2011
  • 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).

EdwardR, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: Rise of Flight is a great flight sim and probably the best WWI sim since Red Baron. The graphics are exceptional and the planes are depicted in amazing detail.

One of the Most Compelling Flight Sims of All Time

BW, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: This is an updated version of the classic Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War. Although modern jets have their sports car like appeal, I have always thought that vintage airplanes were more fascinating and intriguing.

Great to have all the improvements in one excellent package

BlueHeron, Amazon
5 September 2010
  • Summary: This game has come a long way since the first edition was released a year ago. The flight model and damage effects were great fun from the start. Now they've cleaned up the bugs, added some phenomenal lighting effects and two campaigns. Plus the game now comes with 8 flyable aircraft!

  • Summary: Lets face it the only thing computers are really good at are manipulating pixels... whether in an image or as in this case - a game. Yes, the load times are a pain, the (still) limited number of planes (bombers/recon.
