Pros: Graphics are nice at 480p, very similar to the PC version. I thought I give it a go with the Wii control scheme. Somewhat smooth controls. A novice flight sim. Not a beginner nor is it hardcore. The casual gamer should be able to pick this up with much practice.
Cons: High learning curve, controls sometimes have a mind of its own when you are turning in extreme conditions, perhaps its because I'm not use to it yet. Difficult to bomb multiple ground targets when you're in a rush. This is not for the kiddies.
Even though this game gives you hordes of options on how you want to use the Wiimote and nunchuck, I still found it difficult to find the right setting. You definitely need a flight stick with this fighter sim. Unless you are a diehard flight simmer and need something now, I would not recommend this game for the Wii. Save yourself the $50 bucks and just rent this game to find out for yourself. Or get the PC version if you have a flight stick.
The controls for this game are not at all intuitive or smooth. Distant objects look terrible as well. Overall, poor graphics and poor wii controls make this game terrible. I can't believe it is rated so highly.
When I rented this game, I had trouble putting it down. It's really a great flying simulator, and with the wii remote, it really feels like your flying the plane. You have an option of flying in the cockpit of the aircraft or flying in third person view. The voice acting is great, and the graphics are pretty good if you fly low. The water is what really stunned me. Though it doesn't look so good from above, fly right above it and you can see waves and reflections. This game is definantly worth a rent!
