Was hesitant about buying this game at first, after reading a lot of negative reviews, declaring lots of problems and bugs with the game
Then I realised all the the negative reviews were before 2011.
It seems This was when the original company decided to not continue with the games developement, and a team of enthusiast programmers took over the project calling themselves Team Fusion.
Since then the game was improved beyond all recognition.
Great graphics, great gameplay, whether in the many Single player missions, or online Multiplayer with up to a possible 128 players in a single game. I myself have played in games with more than 80 players at a time.
Once bought on Steam it will download the original game. Then there are 5 update files you must download, which are simple to install, which updates to the latest excellent version, download them from here.http://teamfusion.theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/
There ar quite a few servers which can be accessed fron the multiplayer menu
but recommend this site to join up and play on their servershttp://theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/index.php
Plus there are lots of people at the site with lots of knowledge about the game, and any problems you may encounter.
The game is about £10 on Steam at the moment, really great value
There's a bit of a learning curve initially, but well worth it, with a great feeling of satisfaction. Having played the game for some time now, I can thoroughly recommend it.
If you like air combat games, don't hesitate, just buy it, you wont regret it
