MAJOR UPDATE AVAILABLE NOW! - large maps, no boundaries, simulation mode, and others

This update brings you the major improvements previously available in Beta branch. As there were not any noteable issues reported, the patch goes public and we hope to improve your gameplay experience.
It takes longer to proceed as we had to recover from bankruptcy of our publisher bitComposer.

The update improves a lot of issues which were pointed out by players, namely:
1. Increased size of the maps and removed boundaries
2. Added simulation mode for airplanes
3. Changed control scheme
4. Reworked gameplay style, particles, HUD
5. AI
and really countless of other fixes.

I hope you will enjoy the update!

Have fun!

This isn't a very serious game, and the storyline is really bad. I wish there was a mission at the end to kill my supposed family, who get more and more namby-pamby and anti-war as the game goes on.

However, the music is great. All those 70's songs, even though they are constantly repeated, get you right into the time period.

On the other hand, there's all these really crappy Huey door gunner sequences that make me want to scream. AAAAHHH! They detract massively from the Cobra sequences. With a Cobra, all you do is just fire Hydra rockets and pulverise everything. Its great fun

The jet fighter sequences are a bit lame. The MIG's are OP as it gets, and the missiles DO NOT WORK.

I really like the game, but the helicopter on my joystick doesn't work so its better to you mouse and key board.
you should try a joyskick to control the planes its easier and better.

The bad:
* Boring repetitive gameplay.
* Bad AI.
* Tiny maps.
* Awful quality of maps (ground textures are ugly, lack of objects).
* Graphics are not good (it may looks good on screenshots, but it ugly in motion) - trees and clouds are just plane sprites (reminds me of 2000th).
* Lack of achievements.
* No replay value.
* No simulator control scheme for gamepad.
* Dead and pointless multiplayer.
* Story. Your alter ego is muted. Why Thompson fight for so long? For what? There is no answer.

The good:
* Soundtrack.
* Relatively long campaign.
* About 20 authentic planes and copters.
* You can control up to 6 various aircraft at single mission and switch them freely.
* Random rescure MIA pilots from your squad are interesting for first 1-2 times.

Some additional thoughts:
This game has somekind of historical accuracy: Americans are bad - bombing civilians, spreading agent orange, napalming villages. But if you don't like to be bad, you don't like to play this game. Well, if you American - you may like such "patriotism".
It is the worst game of the Air Conflicts series.
If you want to get flight arcade game look at HAWX1-2 (better graphics, better gameplay, better replay value) or Ace Combat (fun gameplay).

I think it is very mediocre - this game is surely not my best buy.
Metacritics score: ~44 (http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/air-conflicts-vietnam)
