A flight sim game, otherwise known as a flight simulator game, is a video game, but also so much more. A flight simulator resembles the cockpit of an aircraft and shows computer-generated images of what would be a pilot's view.


Since we are HiTech Creations, the makers of Aces High, the combat simulator with attitude, we will concentrate on our game for further information about a flight sim game:

“Aces High 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 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.”


There are literally dozens of flight simulators, or combat fight simulators, as they are also known, on the market. You can find them for game consoles, or for your computer, and they have been around since the 1990’s. Before that you could find flight sim games in arcades.


With so many out there, it’s hard for anyone to know if they are buying a good one or not. We suggest you take them out for a fly before downloading and paying for them. The good ones, the ones with a good reputation on the market, will offer some sort of free download trial period. With Aces High, you can try our free two-week download, no questions asked, and no credit card required. If, at the end of the two-week trial period, you decide Aces High is not for you, that will be the end of it, and you can move on to another combat simulator.

Other than that, concentrate on the graphics and the attention to detail. The good ones, the absolute best World War 2 flight simulators, will make you feel like you are actually taking part in battles on the Western Front of World War Two. The aircraft will look authentic. The ground vehicles will closely resemble the markings on the real tanks of World War 2. The ships will be close-to-exact replicas.


Flight sim games are supposed to be the closest thing you can find to actually being in combat. Obviously, we cannot go back to World War 2, but a great combat simulator like Aces High will make you think you can.

What do you have to lose? The download of Aces High is simple and only takes a minute or two. There are no obligations and no cost to you. Download it, play it for two weeks, and make up your own mind just how good Aces High is.

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