Don’t think of it as a bribe. Instead, think of it as a reward for a job well-done.

What is Aces High?

Aces High is described as an online combat simulator. You might also see it labeled as a World War 2 flight simulator.

It is both of these things, as well as a flight sim game, an MMO game, and just a blast to play.

In Aces High, players choose arenas in which to do combat. They choose from among the many authentic WW2 aircraft, ships, and land vehicles, and then they do battle against the enemy. The other players in the game are players from around the world, other MMO players.

Don’t worry, there are no bloody graphics. This is not Road Warrior. This is a World War 2 history lesson come alive, as fun as it is educational, and a fine reward for any child who just aced a test or raised his/her grade in Math.

A reward plus a history lesson

Yes, it can be a reward, but it is also a history lesson. Aces High transports you back to 1944 and the Invasion of Normandy. It drops you into the action during Operation Shingle and the invasion of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Theater.

In addition, there are countless articles on our website about many of the famous battles from that war, as well as articles about many of the key historical figures of World War 2. It truly is a history lesson, but it’s a history lesson which is fun and entertaining and challenging.

How can you go wrong? For $14.95 per month, you have a reward which just keeps on giving, depending upon continued great performance in school.

No long-term obligations

You are under absolutely no obligation. You can sign up for one month and then stop your membership. Come back six months later, sign up again, and you can pick up again where you left off. If you want to join just for the school year, but not during the summer, that’s cool with us as well. We’ve been around for twenty years now. That kind of longevity in the gaming industry only happens if you are flexible and willing to meet the needs of your customers.

Have you played Aces High, the combat simulator with an attitude? There’s no time like the present. Play for two week free, no obligation, no credit card required.

ANSWER: General John P. Lucas commanded Operation Shingle.

Since 1990, the advent of the Golden Age of gaming, there have been over sixty combat flight simulator games produced.

Over sixty . . .

That is a dizzying number of games to choose from, which leads us to this question: how do you choose among all of the combat flight simulator games on the market?

Here are a couple things to consider.


Over sixty in the last thirty years, about two per year, a formidable number for sure. Curious, how many of those games has been around for the full twenty years?

About one-third of them, in truth, including our combat simulator, Aces High.

Does longevity help in producing an exciting, challenging World War 1, or World War 2 flight simulator?

It sure can’t hurt, right? What’s the main rap against new products? They haven’t worked the kinks out of their product. It takes a couple years to fine-tune any product so that it works to peak efficiency, so following that logic, twenty years is more than enough time to “work out the kinks” in any product.


Aces High has been on the market for over twenty years, but longevity means nothing if those years are not spent refining the product. Innovations happen almost yearly in the gaming industry, so you will want to find a flight sim game which is constantly coming out with new versions. Check out Aces High . . . we no sooner present one version when we start working on a new version. We believe in the old adage that practice makes perfect, and you should too.


If you are a gamer you know all about the importance of graphics. How life-like is that game? Does it make you feel like you are personally in the arena fighting for the goal/objective? If so, you’ve got a winner. If not, pass it over and move on to the next flight sim game.

Strap on your helmet and fly the skies with Aces High. We promise you this about our graphics: you’ll need a hot shower after flying a mission in one of our arenas of combat.


How long will it take to learn how to play a game? Is there anyone on the game site who can help you to learn the game? The quality games have a strong support staff. Aces High is the standard to compare others by with a dedicated management team plus dedicated volunteers ready to answer your questions and even provide one-on-one tutorials if needed. Add to that videos, articles, forums, screenshots, and it all adds up to as much instruction as you could possibly want.

Which feels better during test trial?

If the game does not offer a free trial, don’t bother with it. Aces High offers a free two-week download, no credit card required, two full weeks to play the game against the best players in the world, and if you don’t like our game after that trial period, you simply walk away, no harm, no foul.

How many games on the market offer a two-week free download?

A handful of the sixty!

We are one of them!

Think about it when you are looking for experience, great graphics, and strong support. Aces High leads the way.
