    I'm sorry, but "just an A-10?"




    I know what you meant, but you should have phrased it differently.

    Re: Want a good combat flight sim?

    This A-10 looks good and it has some dang fine reviews. Thanks for the link.

    Here's a few I used to play (way) back in the day:

    Wings of Glory (EA), Aces over Europe (Sierra), US Navy Fighters (EA), Advanced Tactical Fighters (EA), and F-19 Stealth Fighter (Microprose).

    F-22 Raptor Lightning 3 was an amazing game for its time, developed by Novalogic

    Re: Want a good combat flight sim?

    I bought it even though I already had the boxed version just for the sake/convenience of having it on Steam... Now if I actually ever had time to learn the sim, that'd be nice.

    DID F-22 Air Dominance Fighter was always my favorite. It's very old though.

    Unfortunately, Steam doesn't log your play time with the game, doesn't work with the Steam overlay, and is late in getting patches. Considering you can just download the installer from Eagle Dynamics, even if you have a boxed retail copy, and use your key and play that way, this is one of the rare one-in-a-million times when Steam isn't useful.

    If you had bought it on Steam in the first place like I did, it lets you download directly from their website and use your Steam key instead which is what I ended up doing in the end.

    Re: Want a good combat flight sim?

    It truly is a great sim. I recently bought the P-51D they are pre selling. I am in the beta and it is a beast to get off the ground. Very enjoyable, and I cannot wait to see what their fast mover will be.

    Wait, so DSC is making a full P-51D WW2 sim now, or it's just an aircraft you can fly around in in the already existing environments?
