Just a head's up to those considering buying. I purchased the Steam version, but it still has an activation limit of 3 times, from the DRM software, even though there is no mention of this before you purchase. Yuplay swears that you can request an increase in activations, it may or may not be a hassle to some.
In regards to the actual game: The game has very good graphics and is a pretty good flight sim. It has 3 realism settings (Arcade, Simulation and Realistic) but it won't let you configure a custom setting. There are alot of single player missions and on-line is pretty good. I have not been able to finish the campain, as one of the missions called "Nuts" has a scripting bug and will not allow continuation of the campain. There are many people with this problem, but for some people that mission works ok.
Overall, I like the game, but definately has some bugs to be fixed. I am not happy at all about the DRM activation limit, and the lack of a AXIS campain or any missions. But if you have some extra cash and like flight sims, then you may have some fun with this game.

Thanks for posting about the DRM, never knew about that.

The game was recommended to me today, so it is loading now. Not normally a fan of flight sims but this game 'might' change my mind. I'll see what it's like when it finishes loading.

*getting Buggles glasses ready..!

Edited to add: Had game settings up to "Super UltraHigh" (system can handle that and LOTS more plus) for the GFX, Max everything - looked forward to playing the game - went to set controls... Not very good.

The game ran well, but the GFX could've been far better. Very disappointing, but zero surprise.

Hate the game, disappointing graphics, control system, genre.

Not for me anyway.
