5 Oh for God's sake people! Stop comparing it to HAWX.fuzzbuzz | 02/09/2009 | See all fuzzbuzz's reviews (27)Based on the demo: It was very simple, yet very addictive and fun. The controls are easy to master and very simple to use if you're new to flying games. This game has 3 difficulty levels, arcade is for the people who actually don't want to see the simulation side of this game, and therefore the stall is turned off (thank god). Realistic is the difficulty where you spend 5% of the time shooting down planes, and spending 95% of the time stalling, because it's so damn hard to get out of a spin. Simulation is roughly the same as realistic. The damage system allows you to take heavy damage and let you see the wounds (bullet holes), and it's also very fun to see if you can shoot both wings of an enemy fighter (possible). But I keep hearing people compare it to HAWX, and I just don't know why, because HAWX has all that fiddly modern nonsense which distracts you from realising that your actually playing a video game, not an encyclopedia. But these games are in different time-zones with different technology, so it would be a fool's errand to try and compare them. The graphics in this game are the best I've ever seen in a flying game, and the settings are very detailed. Very good game, would recommend people to download the demo before buying just in case you like playing encyclopedias. Worth buying for the price, very fresh, very simple, very good game.
