If you love combat simulators then this is the game for you. You can easily customize your flight controls to make it as easy or realistic as you want. This game is suitable for the newbie as well as the veteran flyer. Tons of plans and factions to choose from not just the standard USA, USSR, Germany and Great Britain. Even though this is an older game the graphics for the plans and cockpit look extremely good. In addition there is a ton of customizable options for your plans, including nose art, camo sets, weapons, etc. However, if you dont have a joystick it will be a bit tricky, but you can use a corded xbox 360 controller if you need too. Over all, I this is a great game, well worth the money, especially when it goes on sale.
