Feel like spending 20 minutes to get to your target?

Summary: Its a decent game if you like flight simulators. Don't expect to have 50 missiles (unless its in Rookie Mode), Missions become repetitiveness and last between 15-20 minutes in average. The campaign is lengthy, and the challenge mode may be boring if you are not used to flying for 20 minutes before finding a target to hit. Overall its a good game, for those who have patience and like to play flight simulator games like IL-2 and Falcon 4.0.
Summary: This game is great if you reset all of your controlls to actual settings of either ace combat or what ever your preference is, it actually is really enjoyable. I am an aircraft mechanic and this is very close for what the aircraft really look like right down to the way the contrails are created while making hard banking turns. it is the best online when you make up your own games within the game with others...
Summary: The Game is ok. I'd give it a three. pros: graphics are awsome and very detailed. when you run out of ammo or fuel, or your aircraft is damaged, you can land at the base or carrier and reload, refuel, and fix your Aircraft. flight controls are good. the game also has a free flight mode. cons: mission are extremely difficuly. its almost impossible to evade a missle. one hit and your gone. music horrible. sometimes your missles wont even lock onto an enemy.
Summary: I served four years in the Air Force so I was excited about this game coming out. About time xbox made a modern jet game!!! Now to the game... I was expecting a lot more from it to tell the truth. The graphics are amazing however the gameplay is terrible especially in novice mode. In novice mode, your plane is way too slow and difficult to turn. As another poster stated it feels like your flying through mud.
Summary: Over G is a game I have been looking forward to for quite some while. When it first arived, I was excited to play a next generation flight sim, and was given something that fell short of my expectations. Sound- Even with my 5.1 turned up, the jet's feel incredibly quiet, outside of the aircraft, afterburners sound weak, and the jets overall sound very quiet. The Japanese rock music is nauseating, and the dialog is terrible.
Not bad for the first modern air combat game for the 360

Summary: A lot of people are comparing this game to Ace Combat for the PS2 and the two games could not be more different. First off Over G is more of a flight sim. I have heard compliants that there is no feeling of speed, that your plane is like a blimp floating in space. Think of it this way, if you are in a plane at 30,000 feet and look out the window does it feel like you are going 500mph? No, it seems like you are floating.
Conclusion: I find this game pretty frustrating. How do i drop chaff in the event of missile strikes against me and how do i give my wingman orders? Also, i find this game pretty slow in manouvering considering its a jet plane simulator - blazing angels planes manouver alot quicker. Apart from that, looks good and quite easy for getting achievements - thats if you dont get shot down like!!!
Excerpt: A nicely put together game, but suffers from it's own genre. Not too much playability as the control technique is tricky and due to the high speed combat - it's all shooting distant targets and no real 'dogfight' technique required. Pity, because it's an impressive looking scenario, spoiled by poor gameplay.
Conclusion: This game is one of the most detailed fighter games on console however the storyline is bad verging on stupidity in places who of you has heard of the energy air force? no-one exactly could they not of simply made it the earth air force, it is small things like these that make this a bad game however if you value visuals above gameplay then go right ahead and buy this game overwise get somthing else
