Flight Simulators

If you are looking for a combat simulator to play, be aware of this fact: there are literally dozens to choose from. Combat simulators, also known as flight sim games or flight simulator games, have been around since the early 1990’s. Some of the early pioneers are still around, and their popularity gave birth to dozens more.

Each one costs money, and each one promises thrills and chills for the gamer. So how do you choose from among so many?

We are about to tell you!

Narrowing the field a bit

The first step you should take is to eliminate all flight sim games which are not MMO games. The excitement is amplified when playing against real people in real time. You improve your skills when you are playing against real players.   You learn to adjust to the unpredictable when you play against real combat simulator players.

This is a no-brainer! Narrow the field immediately and cut out the pretenders.

Here’s what to look for, a simple piece of advice

Now we are really going to narrow the field for you. This is our #1 piece of advice: narrow the field, even more, to those World War 2 flight simulators which offer a free trial period. For example, our Aces High offers a free two-week download of Aces High, no credit card required. We are so confident that you will like our game that we literally give it away for free to half-a-month.

So check out the competition and find out who is offering free trials. Give those free trials a go. Sign up and play the games for free. Only by playing the games can you truly get a feel for which game matches your needs and your desires. And hey, if they aren’t offering a free trial, in our opinion they can’t be too confident in their game.

Extras to consider to narrow the field more

Once you have done all that, you should have the field narrowed down to the Top Five or so. Now you look at the second level of amenities. How are the graphics? How much online support do you receive? How easy is it to learn the fine details of the game? Is the play level up to your skills? How often does the game update with new versions? What are the ratings of the game, and what are the comments from people who purchased each game?

Does this seem like a lot of work? Perhaps, but consider you will be playing one of these games for multiple hours each week. It would be a shame to pay the monthly payment only to discover the game isn’t nearly as fun or challenging as you thought it was.

A word about Aces High

For over twenty years now, Aces High has led the way among World War 2 flight simulators. You might say we wrote the book on what it takes to be an exciting MMO combat simulator, and we offer a free two week download of Aces High.

We are confident that once you play our game, you’ll sign up for months and years.

And our confidence should fill you with confidence!
