Has anyone heard of his one? Looks to be quite fun and not too arcade!

In case anyone is wondering. I think I'll stick to my proper sims in any case (no consoles).

It kind of reminds me of Wings of Prey but with a bit more realism maybe? Might be a fun title to pick up!

The graphics and cockpits are certainly decent looking enough.

No, it looks good and possibly entertaining but I don't personally own any consoles other than Wii. I used to like arcade flight games a lot more but I think I've gotten to the point to where I prefer the realism and control over blockbuster experience.

This is by Gajing. It looks like a heavy modified IL2 engine too.....

All the images are Pac theatre, but the extended text says includes spits and 109s,
so I guess it is on the lines of an extension of Birds of Prey - I note that there is
a hint of the green tint and darkened corners, but toned down from BoP, I guess they
listened to the complaints...
