"This is a quality piece of software. Even without the extra modules, this is simply amazing. The SU-25T is one of my favourite jets of all time, and it is brilliantly realised here, with so much content you feel guilty for getting it for free.

This only goes to show the confidence that DCS have in there Digital Combat Simulator, that they would give you so much for free. Stop reading this and go and download it now!." – Hubpages

"DCS World is a must-have for simulation enthusiasts who want as real as you can get in their home PC." – SimHQ

About the Game

Feel the excitement of flying the Su-25T "Frogfoot" attack jet in the free-to-play Digital Combat Simulator World!

DCS World is a vehicle combat simulation game created by an inspired development team. DCS World uses a powerful engine that delivers realistic gameplay. The battlefield includes a spectacular mission area - the location of the Georgian conflict in 2008. Fly the Su-25T in a massive, semi-dynamic campaign to achieve dominance in the skies over Georgia!

The huge variety of aircraft, land units and warships are included from countries such as the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, German Spain and others. Units are controlled by sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) and they have an amazing levels of detail. This all allows for the creation of engaging, real-world combat missions in this flashpoint region. DCS is a true "sandbox" simulation that can and will cover multiple time periods covering many types of combat and civilian units.

Your exhilarating experience will be extended through additional DCS modules available through Steam. Such modules include the A-10C Warthog, Ka-50 Black Shark, the P-51D Mustang, and ground combat control with Combined Arms.

It is a simulation, plain and simple. Do not expect to learn how to play once you start. Once you get the hang of it, it is highly enjoyable.

I have most of the modules however my favorite is the A10-C. You can do almost everything you can do in the real jet and because of this there is always something new and interesting to learn about the plane. Compared to other flight sims I've played over the years the flight model in the a10 feels the most realistic. You'll notice the difference upon takeoff compared to other flight sims which feel like they have sticky wheels.

I would warn against purchasing the SU-25 or A-10A DLC for DCS world because at this time (2013) they don't have clickable cockpits or advanced flight models. If you're looking to get into the DCS series and like jets as opposed to helicopters then definitely pick up the DCS: A10-C DLC as I would say as of this time it's the most in depth flight simulation available.

DCS World enables you to fly various modern aircraft or command ground forces in a hypothetical war between NATO and Russia on the Russia/Georgia border region. DCS World comes with the SU-25t which includes tutorials, multiplayer, a campaign, single missions and a mission editor. It's an entire game, for free!

The best part of DCS World is the ability to combine the various modules, DCS: A-10C and Combined arms for example. All the modules are linked through DCS World and therefore you can play on the same server as someone else flying/controlling different vehicles to you in one big battlespace! So if you fancy taking on a highly realistic combat simulation then pick up DCS A-10C for DCS World. If you want something a little more forgiving then you can grab hold of Flaming Cliffs A-10A.

More and more aircraft are being added all the time, with the F-15, F/A-18, MiG 29, SU-27 and SU-33 expected fairly soon. There are also sims for the Mi-8, Huey, KA-50 Black Shark and also the P-51D Mustang!

If you love aircraft and want to jump into something more true to life than 'Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X' then this is the product for you!

(Joystick with rudder function and some kind of head tracking system is highly recommended! Facetracknoir is free and works with any webcam)

Overall this game is fantastic if you are into modern aviation and don't mind a somewhat steep learning curve.


In case you were wondering (as others have) The reason steam thinks I have not spent any time AT ALL playing this game is because I use a non-steam shortcut to play it, the standard shortcut that steam provides does not work with the steam overlay for me. So before you start making clever remarks about how I know about the game, just bear that in mind :)

I get no benefit from having written this review, it is for your benefit so why would I lie about it? it's absurd lol. Some people eh?
