There are so many combat simulators on the market. We at HiTech Creations have been making our game, Aces High, since 2000, and in that time we have seen the market expand from a handful of flight simulators to dozens, and every single one of them promises unending thrills, and every single one of them claims to be the best thing since sliced bread hit the grocery shelves.

So how is the consumer to know which is the best flight sim game? What should you look for when purchasing a flight simulator?

Hopefully, this article will help you to decide, should you be in the market for an exciting computer game.

Here, then, are features we believe to be most important, based upon our twenty years of producing Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators.

It should be interactive

It’s fun playing against the computer, or against the game, but it is infinitely more fun playing against live competition. Make sure the game you choose is a MMO game, meaning a multi-player game. On Aces High, at any moment of any hour of any day, you can log on and play against the best gamers in the world. You test your skills against their skills, which means you experience real-time combat against other experienced gamers.

It’s the only way to fly, in our opinion.

The graphics should be topnotch

This is the year 2020. It would be nonsense to settle for a game which had inferior graphics, or a World War 2 combat game which did not provide real-time, instant reaction to commands. Technology has advanced to the point where you should expect the best, and you shouldn’t settle for second-best. Game producers like HiTech Creations are constantly revamping the games to update them and make them the best possible.

It should be realistic

Playing a World War 2 simulator should make you feel like you are actually fighting in World War 2. It should be that realistic. The aircraft and ships and ground vehicles should be extremely detailed. At HiTech Creations, our programmers are all gamers and they are all history buffs. We have poured over history books looking at details we believe are important for our game to be authentic. You should expect nothing less in whatever game you purchase.

It should provide endless excitement

24/7, 365, no matter what time you log on to the game, there should be entertainment and excitement. That is the bare minimum you should expect from an online flight sim game.

It should present good value

There are a lot of combat simulators out there to choose from, and that’s good news for you. Competition in the marketplace drives prices down, and that’s a win for you. Shop around and find the best deal for you. Aces High is $14.95 per month, which breaks down to a per play cost of cents per play. Also included is the first two-week download trial period for free.

Here we go again with another installment of World War 2 Trivia. This is #402 for those who are keeping track.

QUESTION: On November 1, 1941, President Roosevelt announced that the U.S. Coast Guard was being placed under the direction of the U.S. Navy. Why was that transition of authority important?

Listen, we don’t feel it would be appropriate for us to brag too much about our exciting flight simulator, Aces High. We would rather you try our free two-week download for yourself and come to that realization without our prompting.

ANSWER: Transferring authority from the Coast Guard to the Navy was a move usually only done during wartime, and yet, at the time, the U.S. was still a neutral nation. That would change in a month.

Without some good reasons why you should play our World War 2 flight simulator, this is nothing more than bits on a computer screen. So that’s what we are going to give you, five reasons why you should try our MMO flight sim game.

Let’s get started!

Unlimited play

Day or night, any hour of the 24-hour period, any day of the year, Aces High rules the virtual skies over World War 2. If you have insomnia, you can log on and play. If you have a spare half-hour before you go to work, you can log on and play. Play 200 times per month; heck, play 500 times per month; the price will be the same, and access will always be available, just as it has been since the year 2000.

MMO game

Play gamers from India. Play gamers from the UK. Play gamers from Indonesia and Minnesota and Russia. Every single time you log on, you are facing a variety of flight sim gamers from around the world and that, you must admit, is kind of cool.

Great cost per play

The cost is $14.95 per month. It’s been that same cost for quite a few years now. Do the math. If you play one-hundred times in a month, it costs you about fourteen cents each time you play. That is an incredible value. Play fifty times per month and it costs you about twenty-eight cents per play, or about a quarter. Where else will you find that kind of entertainment value?
