Really Bad

Bad Game!

Aero Elite is THE WORST airplane game I have ever played! First of all, there are'nt even that many planes, they don't have modern ones like the F-22. Second, the controls are too sluggish. The simple concept of flying in the game is too complicated! You can barely make a good turn, and even if you do get a good turn, you freakin stall! This suffers the fun rating in dogfights. I would not recommend this game to anyone!

Good try Saga, but Bandai/Namco still take the top

this is a good simulation of real flight combat training, the controls aren't as resoncive as the Ace Combat series, which was my first flight sim, but I like the training mode, as well as the Aero meet mode. but still, graphics, control issues and lack of any real dodging as a result of those issues, have caused it to fall short of truly good game play, while the verity and type of aircraft make it a good base for those looking at sims of this type. if you haven't played Ace Combat, or if you have and are looking for a different experience, I'd recommend this game, Far better then Over-G will ever be, sorry Ubisoft, but you've been beat by a current gen platform.

The controls on this one are what detract the most from this game. The graphics are decent but without smooth controls that are responsive and easy to use there is no game.

I rented this hoping for a good flight simulator. I'd suggested looking elsewhere.
