Summary: Supplier shipped the game very quickly and arrived new and in perfect condition. Problem is, you have to go through all the training missions before you can get to the game proper. This is boring and if you fail to complete a mission then you have to keep going over it again and again untill done. All I want to do is play the game and have fun.
Summary: This is more of a game and not a flight sim. Plus, good luck finding anyone to fly with online. I enjoy the flight models that you get to tear the sky up with, but tearing up the sky against AI is BORING. Anyway, if you want a mindless Sim, here you go, you want a Sim that will rock your mind, Birds of Steel is the way to go my friends. Good Hunting and see yall in the air.
Unlimited lives just a bit too easy, except for two missions

Summary: Generally I liked this game. Some of the controls with a 6-axis are a bit clunky, however generally pretty good. Visuals are OK, not generally a standout element. The campaign is a decent length, and the missions are a pretty good mix (would have liked 1-2 more naval themed missions). I have two complaints though - during campaign mode you have no options to select your plane or loadout, and (for me) two of the campaign missions were way tougher than all the others.
Summary: the game is fun and has a longish campaign. it is a little unrealistic, but do-able. graphics could be better, but we're talking 'bout a pretty old game. nobody is online. Overall, if you like campaign only games that you sell later, get it, but you probably won't sell it again. people think it is garbage and won't buy it. the person who sold to me wrote "THANK YOU" just like that on the receipt. LITERALLY!
Summary: Very Solid game. Varying degree of difficulty and controls. Interesting level interaction and objectives. Lots of levels. Will easily keep you playing 3 weeks - 1.5 months. Good graphics and play control. I give this one a high score.
