It's kind of hard when LucasArts essentially gave it zero attention. It had one station at the last E3.

Sorry, I only have fun with CRPGs. I have tried other genres in the past. Played Alpha Centauri, the Civilization games, Unreal Tournement, and the such and I only have real fun when I play a CRPG. Occasionally I play a good space sim, but their hasn't ben any since Freespace 2 and Wing COmmander.

You can try IL-2 Forgotten Battles, it isn't a space sim, but is very good.

this game actually looks interesting. at first i thought it was going to be star wars based, since all the other titles currently being advertised on the lucasarts site are star wars. but i guess not. either way, i might pick it up if the early reviews are good.

And after he is done with it, he can actually fly the real thing.

Mind you I never played it but I did IL-2 demo and those flight sims are more close to Microsoft Flight Simulator that to Wing Commander, I do miss Origin flight sims ...

I know how is,

1.- Take off.- Perfect
2.- Mission.- Perfect
3.- Landing.- I need a new plane ;) (If is in an aircraft carrier when I had to land, if is an airbase, maybe the plane can be saved)

If you like arcades you can try Secret Weapons Over Normandy (Second World War planes) or Fair Strike (Modern Helicopters)

Damn good sim, if you can be bothered to learn to play it. Oddly enough, winning in it involves careful planning and tactics, and fast reflexes aren't the deciding factor.

And playing the co-op missions is a blast. (w00t)

Nop, 213374U, the only thing you need to win in that game is not forget down gear when you back to your aircraft carrier, and not forget that the aircraft carrier is too small or you'll end learning to swim :cool: . Pacific Fighters is very good, but I prefer Forgotten Battles with the Aces Expansion Pack, in the PF you can't fly with the Luftwaffe :thumbsup:"

I'll get it if it's good (renting first), but I don't have high hopes really. I was very dissapointed in Pandemics last batch of games, such as Battlefront. If the gameplay seems like it will stay solid and fun, and not become stale in a month, then I'll pick it up. Pandemics games just don't have the replayability as other ones do. They're a blast at first, but after a few weeks they're just boring and not fun at all. Maybe this game will be different.
