U talk about REALISM ? then let' see how ALL of that game could COMPETE with... ACE COMBAT series eh ? not many people want a REALISM when dog fighting with a jet plane cuz its mean... 1 simple little wrong move, voila... u are a big sitting duck waiting to be rocketed to oblivion in just few seconds then...
Especially if u fly with F - 22 Raptor, none want to play a REALISTIC game with others jets too !
Arcade style flight combat is the thing that make dog fighting using jets are much much more fun + thrilling + wonderful !
Since in modern warfare, u just need to push 1 button to blast all your enemy to death... so with realism, it will be completely sucks since your action will be so very very limited & its bore me!
That's why Ace Combat & Battlestation series... reigns !
They give still some realism yet the control + gameplay are pretty much like an arcade game... not many people wants to fly jet just to shoot 1 - 4 enemies, but they want to do some unrealistic acrobatic moves & shooting SO MANY ENEMIES...
Yes, a very good comment Bro !
I am very agree with u, realism will make this game boring & complicated too !
Realism will bore any CASUAL gamer to death & as u know... the market for CASUAL GAMER are FAR FAR FAR BIGGER BETTER & CRISPIER than game market for SIMULATOR GAMER !
With simple yet fun & easy to learn hard to master gameplay, anyone can play this game WITHOUT need to know how fast is F - 22 or how to maneuver using Berkut...
And in realism, some short burst can ended your game INSTANTLY & if u want to talk about realism, you shouldn't be allowed to come back to mission again since either u are death (so u even need to restart the CAMPAIGN) or you need to travel back from your parachute drop point first... more importantly, u will definitely need to allocated so much time reading the manual guide just to learn how to take off before learning how to make a move or how to activated your armament too instead of already playing it with your buddy
Not many people dedicated themselves to flying a jet in a sim game too in their life so they don't like wasting their time
Any combat simulator are pretty cool & good but they are DEFINITELY COMPLICATED & have a very deep learning step
