Game Review:

Easily some of the most involving and complex games on the market for the PC are flight simulations. Then down in the flight simulations genre, there are three smaller sub-genres within, combat flight simulators, civilian flight simulators, and the light flight simulators. The most popular of these is easily the combat flight simulators, with several titles currently out going head to head in the battle to produce the most realistic and fun game. Games like USAF and IAF were also great games, but they lacked the excruciating detail and accuracy that make single plane simulations so accurate. Recently, some of the most accurate and fun flight simulators such as Falcon 4.0, Flanker 2.0, F-15, and MiG Alley have been created. All of these simulators are great examples of the great detail and research that was spent into creating one of the most realistic and accurate portrayals of a single plane. Jane's Combat Simulations is quite easily the best combat flight simulation developer has now created a simulation dedicated to the newest plane of the U.S. Navy, the F/A-18.
