A True Flight Sim

This isn't an arcade game. This is a sim. It has a difficulty setting from "simplified" or "tough" to "simulator" or "down right hard." However, the game, I think has shown what a true flight sim can be on the 360 or any other console. This game may set a precedent for future sim games. The mission editor allows for easy or hard gameplay according to what you want and doesn't put you in a box with the same maps or missions over and over. It works with the Ace Edge (came with Ace Combat 6 collectors edition) flighstick (which I own) and makes it well worth the $40 price tag. I didn't like the controller feel of it but with the flight stick it really is a lot of fun to play. Great WWII game as well with over 100 planes to unlock and fly from many different countries. A beginner may get frustrated as the game is a little tough, but with time it becomes very fun. I wish this game could be mated with Ace Combat 6 with the best of both games being implemented. Great game for flyers. I give it an 8.5 out of 10. Graphics are average but the sound and gameplay are great.

It wasn't as good as I expected it to be. The piloting was really complicated and the controls were hard.
