    4.0 out of 5 stars There's good points and bad points. August 26, 2011
    By S. Fox
    Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Rise of Flight definitely isn't an arcade flyer; it's a serious flight simulator set during WW1, flying rickety old WW1 planes. A good quality joystick is an absolute must, so if you don't have one then you'll definitely need one. This game - like almost all games - has good points and bad points, so I'll set out this review as a list of pro's and con's, so you can pick and choose what's important to you and what's not.

    PRO'S:
    * If you have the computing power then the graphics are beautiful; the planes and the landscape. It even has rain and snow that you may have to fly in.
    * The developers are continuously working on improving and expanding the game with patches.
    * You can adjust the game extensively to help the learning flyer, such as not running out of fuel or ammunition, enable autopilot, etc. It has plenty of graphics adjustments, as well.
    * It has a good variety of planes available, with more being created.
    * The game has an active multiplayer community, so you should have no problem finding people to fly with and against.
    * The game's community have created an extensive variety of skins for the planes.
    * The community in the forum is generally very helpful to new flyers and will answer your questions, if you ask nicely.
    * The developers made a serious effort to give the planes realistic flight mechanics. Each plane will behave differently, according to how the records say the planes behaved. Consequently, some planes will be easy to fly, while others will be a bit of a nightmare.

    CON'S
    * This game has an Everest-like learning curve! It is an extremely difficult game to learn, since the developers made a serious effort to make each plane as detailed and realistic as possible.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Flight Simulation July 5, 2010
    By Laser
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This is not a full review, just my impression of this simulator. I don't have the ICE edition, but the previous one. ICE is actually a repackage of the previous version, with more planes available by default (when planes appear, you buy them - if you want to fly them, otherwise they are in the game, but only for AI). So if you don't have the previous version, this one is the better deal. This model (pay/buy what planes you want) helps with making the new patches free.

    It has the best flight models, graphics, plane models and a very detailed mission editor. A lot of work was put into it. You do need a good computer (try an i7 or a Phenom x6, this one is pretty cheap for the performance you get) and you have to be prepared to spend time configuring it - because it is a simulator, not a game. Nevertheless, it has a lot of options to help the new user (including guided shooting). It does run on 64 bit all right, unlike what a previous poster implied (i have it running on a win7 x64 with phenom II x6 at 3500GHz). While not 'theoretically' required, you really need at least a good joystick (pitch, roll) with twist option to also control the rudder, or in addition - pedals (much better). Multiplayer offers 'cooperative mode' missions (everybody starts at the same time, dead is dead), dogfight mode (everyone enters when he/she can, you can respawn when dead) and also a 'conquer the flag' mode. The mission editor is very powerful, with lot of triggers and 'logic' stuff. The sim also offers a quick mission builder for single player, a (dynamic) campaign mode and a 'career mode' (scripted campaigns). So you can fill the skies with planes, or fly under bridges, or get medals and promotions flying campaigns or multiplayer.

    It is very addictive, if you are a serious simmer and/or aviation fan. Some people only play this sim.

    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Rise of Flight Iron Cross Edition is a re-release of the original Rise of Flight that now includes 8 flyable planes instead of 4, and 2 new multiplayer modes, with the aircraft spanning from the start of the war till it's end. The development team is expanding the single player career mode and constantly developing new aircraft which will include more scouts (fighters), and the addition of bombers/recon aircraft.

    Rise of Flight has a steep learning curve and is unforgiving initially, but with a few hours of practice you can start mixing it up with others and a real sense of achievement comes out of flying this simulation.

    Everyone has had issues with the game at some point, however I run the game on Win7 64bit with no problems whatsoever. The latest patch enabled higher memory use for those running 64bit systems. It is a game that is constantly being developed and improved, can't ask for much more than that when you compare it to the stagnant development in most games today.

    Additional purchases for aircraft are required as in other flight sims, and this is necessary to fund the development of future aircraft to fly. At only a few dollars each the cost/flight time ratio certainly balances itself out over time. As always though, the option is there and you don't have to buy any aircraft you do not want.

    Overall it is a much more complete game than when it was first released and the development team has a great rapport with the community and is open to input and suggestions which is a rarity these days. One example is recently they allowed custom made player skins in as part of the core game so you can fly your own individual skin without mods being on. The team are very helpful on the forums and the community is always there to lend a helping hand also.

    If you are craving not just a World War One flight simulator but a true flying experience, it is hard to go past Rise of Flight.
