Okay, maybe we exaggerated just a bit; you won’t actually be transported back in time to the 1940’s, and you won’t actually find yourself marching onto the beach at Normandy; but you will take part in the simulated battles of World War 2 when you play Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators, and that’s the next best thing to being there.

Until an actual time machine is invented, of course!

You will be in charge of aircraft. You will be in charge of ships. You will be in charge of ground vehicles. You will be the general in charge of battle strategies, and you will be playing against some of the best flight sim players from around the world.

You will also have the opportunity to partake/participate in challenges weekly, competitions against other combat simulator players, playing for bragging rights, playing to the title of Best Pilot of the Week, a virtual trophy you can place atop your virtual fireplace mantel for all to see. We are joking about the virtual fireplace, of course, but we are not joking about the weekly competitions.

And you will play any old time you want, 24/7 if you prefer, because there is always someone from around the globe playing Aces High, someone who is quite eager to take you on in battle.

Why is Aces High the best?

Aces High leads the way because we were one of the first, introduced in 2000, and we’ve been fine-tuning, tinkering, and improving every year since then. We are World War 2 junkies. Our graphics are simply the best. Our attention to detail is simply the best.

We are simply the best! Don’t think so? There’s one way to find out. Try our game, free of course, for two weeks. Then try other flight simulators but be warned: many of them do not offer a free trial like we do with Aces High, so you might have to pay for the testing period.

Get done with your trial and you’ll come back to our first statement: we are the best World War 2 flight simulator on the market.

What do you need to play our flight simulator?

What do you need? A computer with the download capacity for our game, which is virtually every computer on the market today. What else do you need? A love of gaming, and an interest in World War 2. We will provide everything else for you.

Why not now?

There’s no time like the present. Heck, most of us are stuck at home with this whole social-distancing thing anyway. We are tired of streaming Netflix. We are looking for a new challenge, and Aces High is that challenge.

Strap on your helmet and fly the skies with Aces High.

Strange times these days, don’t you think? What helps most of us are mundane things which take our minds off of the current events, things like playing World War 2 Trivia. Won’t you play along with us with World War 2 Trivia #388?

QUESTION: On August 30, 1940, “The Blitz” began. This is a two-part question: what was “The Blitz” and what was its main purpose?

Over seventy years after the initial event, you can take place in the Battle of Britain and other major events of World War 2 by playing Aces High, our exciting World War 2 flight simulator.

ANSWER: The Blitz was the bombing of London and other major British cities. It was in retaliation of the bombing of Berlin, but it’s major purpose was to crush British resistance and crush the will to fight among the British populace.

How much do you know about World War 2? We answer that question, each week, with World War 2 Trivia. Welcome to World War 2 Trivia #389.

Shall we find out?

QUESTION: On October 28, 1940, the Italian Royal Army launched attacks into Greece from Italian-held Albania, starting what war?

How would you like to fight in that war, online, against hundreds of other gamers from around the world? That’s what Aces High has in store for you, putting you in the action during World War 2 in an exciting MMO game. Download today!

ANSWER: The bombing of Greece by the Italians started the Greco-Italian War, angering Hitler and depleting resources which were needed in battling England.

If someone had complained back in March, after about two weeks of forced social isolation, that they were bored, we all might have laughed at them.

Nobody is laughing now, not after seven months of social distancing. Now we are seriously bored. Now we need some entertainment. Now we need to try an MMO game like the exciting combat simulator Aces High.

What is an MMO game?

When a person is referencing an MMO game, they are referring to a “massively multiplayer online game”, which is also sometimes abbreviated as an MMOG. To be defined as a true MMO game, it needs to be a game that can be played simultaneously by a large number of players that can interact with each other and the world that they are engrossed in, online via an internet connection.

In other words, when you log on to an MMO game, you will usually be given several choices of arenas or settings where players are already involved. You will choose one of those arenas, enter the arena, and begin taking part in whatever action is happening at that time. There are also individual contests held from time to time among community members. The games are available 24/7, which means you can log on in the middle of the night, suffering from insomnia, and start playing against someone in India, who is just about to eat lunch.

What is a combat simulator?

What is a combat simulator, or "flight sim," or flight simulator? While it's a video game, it is also so much more. A combat flight simulator resembles the cockpit of an aircraft and shows computer-generated images of what would be a pilot's view.

With so many flight sim options these days, it can be hard to decide what flight simulator, combat sim, or flying games to buy. In our humble opinion, although there are many to choose from, there really is only one which is exceptional in every way, and that “one” is Aces High combat simulator.

Why choose Aces High

Aces High III takes the art and science of vintage WW1 and WW2 air combat and sets it in a high intensity online multiplayer environment. Hundreds of players simultaneously battle it out against each other in massive aerial dogfights and bomber raids.

High fidelity flight simulation is the heart of Aces High III but it doesn't end there. A war rages on the ground and at sea. Engage enemy armor in tank combat. Protect your fleet as a gunner or make a torpedo run in a PT boat. Lead an assault in an amphibious vehicle. With over 100 warbirds, vehicles, and boats available, you have access to a vast virtual arsenal.

In addition, Aces High has been around since 2000, making it one of the first combat simulators, and in this case, experience does count.

Aces High, a realistic and fun 3D flight simulator, is waiting for you.   Strap on your helmet and fly the skies over World War 2 with Aces High, the leader among MMO WW2 flight simulators since 2000.
