What does Aces High deliver?

We can break it all down for you by saying Aces High delivers the following:

  • Historical accuracy
  • Outstanding graphics
  • A support staff second to none
  • Endless challenges and thrills 24/7

Let’s look at each of these in a bit more detail.

Historical accuracy

We don’t just produce a World War 2 flight simulator. We produce one which is ridiculously accurate. At HiTech Creations, we have spent, literally, countless hours pouring over old photographs from World War 2, making sure our online tanks, ships, and aircraft are as historically accurate as possible. From the praise we have received from gamers for the past twenty years, it’s evident we have attained the accuracy we seek.

Outstanding graphics

Strap on your helmet, hop in the cockpit of one of our World War 2 aircraft, and you’ll feel like you are actually flying a mission during the Battle of Leyte. We aren’t messing around with Aces High. We set out twenty years ago to be the best, and each year that is our goal, and outstanding graphics on our flight simulator is one way we reach the mountaintop of gaming.

A support staff

We have management, we have volunteers, we have forums and one-on-one instruction and articles and films. We provide you with all the support you can possibly need so that your learning curve is short and palatable. No matter what time of the day, or night, you log on to Aces High, there is someone there to help you with a question or a problem.

Endless challenges

Besides the normal challenges you face in a variety of arenas whenever you log on, there are also weekly challenges for our members, giving all of them an opportunity to gain bragging rights for the week as top pilot on Aces High. Will you be the Top Gun for this week? Can you retain your title next week? There’s only one way to find out and that’s to join us on Aces High. Warning, though: we have some pretty darned good players.

Try it for free

We are so confident in our flight sim game that we give it away, for free, for two weeks. That’s right, we offer a free two week download of Aces High, a chance for you to play the game and decide for yourself if Aces High is for you. Is Aces High as great as we say it is? Find out for yourself, for free, no credit card needed during the trial period.

Twenty years on the top of the heap . . . pretty impressive, but we who produce Aces High are not satisfied. We want to be Top Dog for 21 straight years!

What makes our game so great? Attitude!

The popular World War 2 Trivia series continues with #451. Thanks for joining us. The game is pretty simple. We ask a question about World War 2, and you attempt to dazzle us with your knowledge. Let’s do this!

QUESTION: On June 19-20, 1944, the Battle of the Philippine Sea took place. This battle actually had a rather funny and famous nickname. What was that nickname?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in an actual battle? Fly aircraft against the enemy? Move your tanks into position? Move your ground troops for best advantage? You can with Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators.

ANSWER: The Nickname for that battle was the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot!

Conduct a Google search of “combat simulator” and be prepared for a veritable blizzard of options, which really shouldn’t be all that surprising since combat simulators have been produced for at least twenty-five years.

The question then becomes this: how do you choose from the dozens available? How do you know which one is best for you, and will provide you with the challenges and entertainment you seek?

Hopefully, this article will give you a game plan as you set out to choose from among the many flight sim games. Hopefully, your choice will be easier once you have read this article.

Let’s get started!

You can always read reviews online

There are countless online articles which include reviews of various World War 2 flight simulators. They are all titled something like “The Five Best combat simulators on the market,” and each of those articles give a compelling reason for their choice. The problem is that usually, not always but usually, those writing those reviews are influenced by the actual companies, either with free incentives or with actual monetary payment for the reviews.

Not exactly what we would call an objective opinion!

You can always join online forums for opinions

For sure, there are countless online forums discussing the combat flight simulator industry, and there are countless opinions in those forums. They are all valid for each individual, and no doubt they are genuine, for the most part. The problem, however, is they are individual opinions based on individual preferences. What one player likes about a game is not necessarily what you will like in a game, and don’t forget about skill levels. The opinion of an expert player may not be valid for a beginner.

You can always read the marketing info for each game

This would appear to be the least reliable approach of them all. Take five minutes out of your day and read the marketing info for two or three games. You will come away convinced that they are all the greatest thing since computer games were invented. How can you possibly believe the words of a marketing expert paid by a particular game?

Or you can test out each of the games for yourself

Which brings us to, what we believe, is the best way to choose from among the many combat simulators out there: actually play the games and find out for yourself which best fits your skill level and which best meets your needs.

Many games, like Aces High, offer a free test-drive of their game. Aces High, for example, offers a no-obligation free two-week download of Aces High. At the end of the two-week period, if you don’t like Aces High, you walk away, no harm, no foul. This seems like the only reliable way to tell if you really like the game.

And, in our opinion, if a gaming company does not offer a free trial period, you should walk about from that game.

So, get out there, test-drive a few combat simulators, kick their tires, check under the hood, and find out which one is best for you.
