WWII History

Have you ever wondered how you would have reacted in a real war like World War 2? Strange question, right . . . or maybe not all that strange. I think we all wonder, at times, how we would react to extreme danger and pressure.

Luckily, we don’t have to be in an actual war to find out, at least partially, what war must be like. We have a game called Aces High, a multi-players war simulation game, which puts you in the cockpit of a WW2 aircraft, and has you fly missions in simulated battles against real-time opponents. It’s as close to warfare as you can come and still be safe.

Flight sim games like Aces High are more than just games; they require hand-eye coordination and they improve your response/reaction time when faced with a pressure situation.

The action is fast and furious when playing Aces High. It is a multi-player combat game, with action happening in the sky, on the seas, and on the ground, and a player learns very quickly that without outstanding response times, the game will be much too challenging.

We are happy to report that your hand-eye coordination and response times improve dramatically in a relatively short period of time while playing our combat simulator. Strap on your flight helmet and fly the skies with Aces High.

It’s a question we are asked often, a valid question concerning any combat simulator or any combat game in general: should children be allowed to play that type of game?

Speaking about our own Aces High game yes, it is a World War 2 combat game, but it is bloodless compared to many of the games on the market, emphasizing gaming skill over blood. A more appropriate question would be how old should you be to be competitive while playing a combat simulator? And we believe the answer to that question is ten or older. Of course younger children can play Aces High, but to compete against the best gamers in the world, we think ten is the lower threshold.

If you go on our Aces High website, you will find a link for FAQs for our combat simulator, but almost all of those questions pertain to the actual playing of the game once you have paid for a subscription. Today we will take a look at the three most frequently asked questions by those who have never played Aces High before.

How much does Aces High cost?

We have some good news and some good news with this question. Aces High only costs $14.95 per month for a subscription. That’s the good news. The other good news is that is the same cost we charged ten years ago.

Read that again and let it sink in.

Do you want some more good news? We offer a free two-week download of Aces High, so essentially, if you subscribed after the two week trial, you would be getting six weeks for the price of four.

How long does it take to learn to play Aces High?

This is somewhat of an impossible question to answer. It really depends on the skill level of a player, and the amount of time spent playing and learning Aces High. We have had players who were quite competitive after two weeks. For others, a couple months is a good measure. But the question is how long does it take to learn how to play Aces High, and we can confidently answer that question by saying a couple days. No more than a week to understand the fine points of the game, how everything works, the basic moves, all of that can be learned in a week for almost all players.

Is there some sort of support system available, or a beginner’s guide?

There is no beginner’s guide, per se, for Aces High, no pdf you can download with all of the information on it. However, we do have forums where you can ask any questions. We have over a thousand articles, many of which deal with the how to of Aces High. We have hundreds of videos, many of which are how to in nature, and we also have one-on-one coaching should you ask for it. Add it all up and we believe our approach to player support is infinitely better than some pdf instruction booklet. At least, our players tell us that is true, and they would know better than anyone else, right?

Allow us to repeat one important point: we offer our game, free of charge, for a full two weeks, no credit card required. Two weeks is more than enough time to learn the game and become competitive and, if for some strange reason you do not like Aces High, you can say goodbye and never hear from us again.

A final word about Aces High

Back in 1999, there were just a couple guys sitting around, kicking around ideas for a video game. The idea of Aces High was settled upon because those guys were World War 2 historians/followers.

At that time, we made a decision; we decided to make one game and one game only, Aces High, and to make that game the best combat flight simulator on the market.

Twenty-three years later, we believe we have delivered on that promise.

One of the things we do, on a weekly basis, is take a look at the frequently asked questions about flight sim games, combat simulators, those sorts of things, and the reason we do it is because we want to know what you, the players and buying public, want to know.

How can we continue to be the best combat simulator on the market, as we’ve been for twenty-three years, if we lose touch with the buying public? And one of the questions we saw this week was “is it worth it to buy a flight sim game?”

Only you can answer that question, and that is why we offer a free two-week download of Aces High. Take advantage of our offer and answer that question yourself.
