To those who do not play combat simulators, it can be a bit confusing why so many people spend countless hours hunched over their computer, joystick in hand, doing combat with total strangers. “Aren’t there better things to do with their time,” they ask?

But for those who play online games like Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators, the answer, or answers, to that question are as obvious as the noses on their faces.

These, then, are the Top Five reasons why our Aces High players engage in World War 2 battle daily.


The entertainment factor was far and away the #1 reason why people play video games. The cost, when factored out over a month of playing a game daily, is ridiculously low, easily one of the best values in all of entertainment. Using Aces High as an example, the fee is $14.95 per month, and that is for unlimited play, 24/7, 365 days per year. An avid player is practically playing for free, and the entertainment, and competition, and challenges are non-stop.

Speaking of challenges . . .


Games like Aces High drop you into the action, in scheduled battles, against the best gamers in the world. They require you to make decisions on the fly, moving aircraft, ground vehicles, and ships into position for the best outcome in a battle. They require you to match wits with the best in the world. Every decision you make will determine an outcome, and every single time you play you find you are getting better at meeting those challenges.


Players around the world form a gaming bond. There is no other way to describe it. They can meet on the gaming forums. They can share experiences and share tips on how to best play a game. They know that no matter the time, or day, all they have to do is log on and their friends will be there, waiting to provide a rousing battle for the day. It’s hard to adequately explain how important this is to many gamers, but it is real and we see it daily on our combat flight simulator Aces High.

Intellectual stimulation

Gaming sometimes gets a bad rap from parents who think their children spend far too much time online, and some of that criticism is warranted. But there is no doubt that gaming provides intellectual stimulation, and this is backed up by leading psychologists who have studied this phenomena for years. Play Aces High and you will become sharper mentally, period, end of story.


You betcha, many flight sim gaming players play because the real world is just too much to bear at times. There is nothing wrong with a few hours of fun to get away from the pressures of the job, or the pressures of school, or all of the bad news hitting the airwaves and the internet.

Historical accuracy/attention to detail

Before we were game creators, we were history nerds. Our owners/creator could not get enough information to satisfy them about World War 2. Once Aces High was created, and we needed help within the corporation, we only hired people who were as fascinated by World War 2 as we were.

And it shows in the detail you will find in our online aircraft, our online ships, our online arenas, and our online ground vehicles. We have poured over thousands of World War 2 photographs to make sure we are as historically accurate as possible in the creation of Aces High.

Graphics second to none

We’ve been doing this for over twenty years. We have been tinkering and adding new versions. We have taken the best technology has to offer and implementing it into our flight sim game. From the moment you log on, you will see the truth in that statement.

Unbelievable support

Hundreds of articles about every aspect of Aces High are available. Dozens of training videos are available. Forums are open day and night for any questions you might have. We even arrange for one-on-one tutoring and training if you like the personal touch.

Put another way, if you require support while you are learning a new flight sim game, you couldn’t ask for more support than you will receive on our Aces High website. We succeed as a company if you love our game, and we will do whatever it takes to make sure your playing experience is a good one.
