MiG Alley
by Interplay Productions
Features:
Flight simulation with single historical missions and head-to-head play
Set during the Korean War
World's largest jet-to-jet dogfights
Diverse propeller and jet aircraft to master--all accurately modeled
Real Dynamic Campaigning means your actions directly influence the UN ground war
The Korean War has gone down in history as The Forgotten War, a fact very apparent in the world of computer flight simulators. Simulations that model the air war in Korea can be counted on one hand, and to make matters worse many of those games are either old or simply stink. That's why we were so impressed when MiG Alley came sailing in out of the wild blue yonder and redefined our expectations for Korean War flight sims.

If you have a 3-D accelerator card, MiG Alley's graphics are impressive, and the sound effects satisfy. The real appeal, though, is the game's convincing flight model. Most dogfights during this period were fought at extremely high altitudes where air density is an oxymoron, and Mig Alley does a terrific job of conveying the slippery precariousness of turning in such conditions (according to the accounts we've read by Korean War pilots). One wrong move and you're tumbling earthward, effectively turning yourself into a big fat bull's-eye.

The historical differences between the MiG-15 and the F-86 are also modeled well, as the Russian-built jet trades maneuverability for power while the American plane is nimble but can't keep up with the MiG in a climb. Dogfights are only half the story, however, since you also can go on ground-pounding missions to take out enemy installations, trains, and other critical enemy equipment. Entire campaigns based around bomb runs are available, and those missions are just as tense and fun as the sorties involving aerial combat. You can even direct the entire air campaign, assigning air and ground targets to flights as you try to manage your resources to stem the ceaseless wave of planes and equipment coming from the north. Whether you crave quick action or would like to savor the strategy elements present in MiG Alley, no combat flight simulator fan should be without a copy. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:
Flight model feels terrific
Ability to manage the entire aerial campaign
Accurate historical differences between aircraft
Cons:
Lack of guided weapons, combined with the high speeds of jets, makes this sim tough for novices

B-17 Flying Fortress

by Hasbro Interactive
 

Product Description
The B-17 bomber was the primary bomber used for long-range daylight bombing in World War II. B-17 Flying Fortress lets you take control of any of the 10 individual positions of the plane, and puts you in command of an entire squadron of 12 bombers. B-17 delivers a full WWII flight-sim experience. As the bombardier, zoom in on targets 20,000 feet below to accurately destroy them. Swat down interceptors as a tailgunner. You can even escort the lumbering B-17s in a fighter plane, or join the Luftwaffe and try to keep the bombers from delivering their payloads.

Combat Flight Simulator 2: Pacific Theater
Other products by Microsoft

Product Description
Combat Flight Simulator 2 is a dream come true for historic flight sim fans. Excellent graphics, great sound effects, and adjustable realism settings make CFS2 a thrilling and accessible sortie into the unfriendly skies of the South Pacific during World War II.

After choosing to fly for the Japanese or American forces, you can pick from a selection of seven ultrarealistic aircraft. Experienced flight sim fans will drool over the plane models, accurate down to the number of rivets. Newbies will appreciate the excellent flight and landing tutorials.

There are over 100 missions to fly, many based on historic missions from the war. This unusual level of realism and attention to detail comes from the game developers' personal love of flight: many members of the CFS2 team are pilots. Their extensive research included interviews with Japanese and U.S. aces from the real war in the Pacific. The missions themselves are lengthy and often complex, and are just as accurate as the planes; players take part in history, but cannot change the outcomes of battles.

Because the action takes place in the South Pacific don't expect to see a wide variety of ground scenery. Not that you'll miss it: the water, small islands, planes, aircraft carriers, and battleships are always very sharp and detailed. However, if you expect to play with the graphics at their best settings, be aware that you'll need a blazing fast machine with a fast video card. On lesser computers, the graphics in Combat Flight Simulator 2 start to degrade from stunning to merely ordinary.

The between-mission story arc is told through 1940s-style comic book panels. The artwork does a good job of moving the story along while giving the feeling that your character and his fellow flyboys are aware they're never far from instant death. That the game also allows you to fly the full Japanese side of the campaign gives the player an interesting glimpse at the Japanese perspective of the war.

While the game does include such famous planes as the U.S. Corsair, Wildcat, P38F Lightning, and Japanese Zero, its mere total of seven craft left us wanting more. We were impressed with the vastly different handling of each plane, but the lack of variety is disappointing.

But this is a relatively small shortcoming in an otherwise deep and involving game. If you have a powerful enough PC, Combat Flight Simulator 2 is a delight, and is sure to please both war historians and flight sim enthusiasts.--Mark Brooks

Pros:
Easy to get into, but can be adjusted to become very difficult and realistic
On highest-quality graphics settings, the game is simply gorgeous
Plenty of missions and great tutorials
Full Japanese campaign adds depth and historical balance
Cons:
Only seven flyable aircraft
Steep system requirements

Product Description
Fight for control over the skies of the South Pacific in Combat Flight Simulator 2: Pacific Theater. You'll start as a rookie ensign and, if you're good, progress through the ranks. Fly for either the United States or the Imperial Japanese in meticulously realistic aircraft models. And, you can alter history in your favor with the game's graphical mission editor and campaign builder.
