Any programme that is marketted for consoles, with a stupid little name like HAWX, with TOM CLANCY written on it, is garbage. Period. If ANY of the
criteria is not met, do NOT
buy. You want a good sim? Try asking on forums. HAWX isn't a simulator, it's a peice of crap and was marketted as
such (never was a sim).
Here are some good ones.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X
- this NEEDS mods to be realistic however, such as
Precision Manuals Development Group.
Excells in civilian flying, complete
garbage for anything else. Good for beginners are serious simmers. Best graphics, best realism (with lots of $$$ worth of mods), bad performance on
anything less than a Core 2 duo, 2gb, 7900GTX. In airliner simulation the mods will put this lightyears in front of anything else.
. More realistic flight dynamics than Flight Simulator X but not noticable against modded aircraft in normal
flight. Is bad in graphics, & avionics. OK for beginners and good for serious players. No weapons.
Space simulation. You need to know what you're doing here, or else you're wasting your time.
. Modern combat flight sim. Good for beginners and semi - serious gamers. Has good multiplayer,,, once you
learn the ropes it becomes too easy multiplayer though, just fly through the mountains passive and IRST R-27ET any bastard that you see.. hahhaha.
Everything is good but avionics are too simple.
Falcon 4.0 Allied Force
. F-16 sim. Terrible graphics but very complex avionics suite that is about
1000 pages in manual length.
"DCS: Black Shark"
Enhanced Lock On engine flying the KA-50 russian chopper.... more expansions
will be released. More or less a show case of technology to help the company get military contracts. The makers train A-10C pilots with same
software... A-10C simulator I speak of isn't allowed to be released because it's too realistic and classified... but the fidelity is the same as
their commercial software.
. Yet to be released fighter sim.
IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946
. Best WW2 simulator.
