Summary: If you like flight sims, and are willig to put in the time, this is a great game. Forget the novice mode, as others have stated. Go for normal or advanced. Landing is tough, carrier landing more so. you have to reload, you run out of fuel etc.
An Excellent Flight Simulator, NOT An Arcade style Game

Summary: I bought this game on the day it came out in 2006, and I'm still popping in my 360 in 2014. It's an indulgence for fighter jet fans as it offers something that other console flight games lack: realism.
Versatile Weapons Load, Realistic Tactics and Physical Performance
31 August 2013
Summary: Pros over Ace Combat 5, 6, 7, and H.A.W.X 2: 1. Versatile, customized weapons load with realistic weapons and number, as well as physical performance: For example, in this game, you can load up an F-15E Strike Eagle with 8 AIM-120C AMRAAMs, along with 6 AGM-65H Mavericks, and 1 2000-pound JDAM or...
Summary: I haven't found a combat flight sim (thats right, SIM) that so immersed me since Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe when I was a kid. Simply put, this game rules. The fact that so many people give this mediocre ratings makes me wonder what they actually know and understand about modern aerial warfare,...
Summary: I play this game all the time and I believe that it is the most realistic one out there. You really have to give it a chance and get used to it. All the flight instrumentation's work in the planes too. There is none of that "painted on crap." You can also land on aircraft carriers and that such.
Summary: This is an incredible game. Wait...Game? No, no, no. More like a simulator. This game definitely seems "Arcadey" but it's not. It isn't fun either. (This is where you keep reading, because I know most of you think that's enough.) But it is an incredible g-...Simulator.
Summary: And I mean that in a good way. This is the most authentic piloting experience that you can get on the Xbox 360 without actually being a pilot! Make sure to take the controls off of basic as this dramatically changes the gameplay. The menus are horrendous and the cut scenes are a joke...
