Flight Simulators are somewhat more popular on PC than on any other platform. The reasoning behind this is the PC’s powerful capability to display some truly realistic environments, which is what flight simulators are always striving for. The next instalment of the Microsoft series is Combat Flight Simulator: WWII Europe series, new for 1998.

No other company has harnessed the power of the PC better than Microsoft, and this is shown in Combat Flight Simulator. Visually, you can alter many specifications of the game’s features to coincide with the capabilities of your graphics card, so the more power you have, the better performance you will get on screen. Graphics aside, the real realism is present in flight physics. There are a number of World War 2 planes to fly, including the Supermarine Spitfire Mark 1. Each and every craft has its own unique handling attributes, which must be learnt to get the most out of your flight experience.

There are differing modes of gameplay to take part in, depending on your fondness of simulators. If you want to get deep into it, then you can choose a campaign mode. If you’re into a little free flight however, you can go into a free flying mode, whereby you can admire the surrounding scenery. So, to conclude, Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator should appeal to anyone who is keen on planes, or World War 2. This title is not approved in Germany for obvious reasons.
