Views on Flying games.
You have your flight simulators and your action flying games such as; Ace Combat, Star Wars Rogue Squadron and Tom Clancy's HAWX.

I do play the odd flying game there and then but it will be Ace Combat most probably or in my N64 days Star Wars Rogue Squadron. I downloaded IL Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey demo last night from the PSN. I really like it. Something to get when the price comes down or borrow from a friend who I know who has it Shifty

At first it took some use to know the controls. Flying around aggressively and losing altitude and somehow pull off some remarkable dodges and being a pain for the enemy.

Looking at the flying game genre compared to others. There is only two games I can really say that are really good and put the flying games on the map. In my eyes the flying genre isnt as big as your tipical FPS, Racing and adventure games but you can't go wrong with a round of spitfire dog fights or be a bastard in a Tie-Fighter.

I love flying, used the play the first IL-2 alot, plus you can't go wrong with the arcade games like Ace Combat, I loved Star Wars on the N64 and also the Gamecube. The new IL-2 is a good mix of Sim and arcade for a game that was just a Sim.

Must try the last Ace Combat as I only played it on the PS2, and see if HAWK is a good pick up.

I've always loved to fly since ATC and I was able to go up in training aircraft and Gliders.

I do like flying around in a flight sim to be honest. I think what you are saying about the new IL2 is correct, i love that they have made it easier for beginers and kept the sim mode in there for the more experienced Grin I think online could be a blast with that Grin I have the game on order, ill tell yo uwhat its like in a few days Grin

Well I quite liked Crimson Skies on the Xbox and I think they are making another one.
I always fancied playing Pilotwings on the SNES and the N64, but never got round to playing it.
I did get a bit lost with Microsoft flight simulator when I played it when I was 13, it was free with the PC I think and couldn't be bothered learning the controls for it.
I think the biggest problem is that the majority of consumers don't want a flight sim, or games devlopers don't want to take a chance in the current climate unless it's Star Wars an established franchise/name etc.
I loved Flying Squadron on the N64 as well mind, cracking game and the podrace Phantom Menace one.

I use to play 1946 on a more realistic, had 3 mates play it too and we would go though a campaign or two, love landing and taking off on the aircraft carriers, so risky

I've tested some flying games and i'm disappointed with the result.

Ace Combat went fairly far across the room, crimson skies case broke as it landed and pilot wings cartridge was far too heavy to get any further than a few centimeters...

well i'm really not into flying games or more specifically aircraft based games becaue they tend to stride towards the more realistic side and normally attracts more of the acute market and not the wide spread appeal that Battlefield has done with their aircraft control and playability. Now if they created a game which has the playability of cod4 but in aircraft form then i'm tickled pink my friends.
