Unfortunately, something went wrong during the activation of your key. Please, submit a ticket to our customer service so we could resolve the situation for you." Then you will find out that the 777 Studios Company is no longer and was purchased by "1С Game Studios" it is at this time you will need to show them pictures of what was to be included in the game ( Various Planes etc..), also supply them with proof of purchase, the outer game box info etc..... I have done all of this and still have nothing to show except a lot of wasted time and money. Also here is another heads up... If and when I do ever get this product to work it will not be compatible with playing on Steam. To play on Steam you need to purchase everything thru them, as this product is not like the Battlefield series. You can also purchase planes to use thru the website also at a 50% discount if you get 6 items or more. Anyways I hope I can save somebody else from going thru this waste of time and money!
this is a simulator constantly updated, with single seat scouts (fighter planes), two seaters recon planes than can take pictures of the ground, bomb places, direct artillery strikes, etc. it even has two heavy bombers with multiple gunner positions.
the developers believe so much in this game that there is a free demo available, comes with one Central Powers (germany et al) and one Entente (allies) plane, a fully accesible single and multiplayer campaign, a dinamic campaign that is a dream!, and you can join in multiplayer as a gunner observer, this without spending a penny.
so go to [...] and check it out
the community is one of the most helpfull there is around, there are 28 planes now available for purchase, we get special sales a few times a year and can fill up our hangar with as little as $2 per plane.
if you want to really fly, not sit around in a glass cockpit with your iphone plugged in come give us a try, you wont be dissapointed the first time you shot down a ballon or have a tangle for a fokker DVII or survive a Fokker triplane and come back to tell about it.
learning to really fly one of this stringbags will take you a bit, but you will love it when you master it.
I keep hoping someone will develop another good air combat game, for now the best I know about are: Microsoft Air Combat 3, HAWX, and Hawx2.
First things first... this is a BEAST of a program... meaning, if you set all the settings to their highest quality, you'd better have a room full of nitrogen-cooled supercomputers. Realistically, you'll want your settings to stay near the "default" settings, and will want to tweak things up slightly. As computer hardware improves, you'll be able to keep dialing things up, and in another two years you'll be able to run at full speed with all settings maxed, no problem... or rather, you would, if they didn't continue to improve and upgrade the program, which (very thankfully) they continuously do.
Second... this is a FLIGHT SIMULATOR. I've gotten very frustrated reading some of the reviews, complaining that this is "too hard" and "too complex" and that they wanted something that you could play in an arcade by dropping a few quarters in. THIS IS NOT AN ARCADE GAME. Let's be clear about that. If you want an arcade game, with simple flight and control models, this is not the program you want.
There's nothing wrong with arcade games, but as I said once before... this is not one of those. It's like ordering a Ruth's Criss Steak dinner and then complaining that it's not like a Wrigley Field hotdog. I can enjoy both... but they're not remotely intended to be the same thing, and in any FAIR comparison, the steak (or the sim) is going to win out over the hotdog (or the arcade game).
If you buy this game, be prepared to spend some time learning it before flying. Then do a bunch of non-combat training flights. Every time you load up a new aircraft, expect a learning curve as well... because no two aircraft are alike (nor SHOULD THEY BE).
To get the most out of this, you'll want to invest a bit in some items which you really need, though it's entirely possible to run and enjoy the program without them. First, you need a quality joystick. In my own case, I fly with a HOTAS Cougar, with Simped F-16 rudder pedals and with a TrackIR 4. Oh, yes, and I also have voice command software (used solely for things you'd really do verbally, like talking to your tail gunner or so forth). Voice command software is trivial to get and set up these days, and virtually any decent joystick with rudder and throttle functions will work adequately in this sim... you don't need anything pricey like the HOTAS Cougar or newer HOTAS Warthog, for example.
This sim really is designed for full virtual cockpit operations, and to get the most out of it, you should seriously consider buying a TrackIR (there's a newer revision, the TrackIR 5, which has higher resolution than the one I have, but I'm satisfied with my version for now). Unlike with modern fighters, where the pilot mainly operates the aircraft by observing the panel in front of him (or her?), in this case, you're really operating primarily by sight, and "turning your head" is how you locate hostiles! Do a "youtube" search for "Rise of flight Trackir" and you'll be amazed at how much of a difference it makes.
The basic sim is sold in several editions. They now have a two-aircraft "unlimited free demo" which is great to start learning the program, and a lot of fun in itself. This edition has a lot more aircraft, and each and every one of them is a challenge to learn to fly properly. If you get bored, lots more add-ons available, and they're reasonably priced (compared to, say, typical aircraft addons for MS Flight Simulator, for example).
You do need to have regular (though not "perpetual") internet access to the publisher to make the program work. If they ever go out of business, or just cancel this product, I hope they'll release a final patch to remove the online activation (as Microsoft did with their MSMoney application). Just realize that you need to activate, and while you can play offline without a connection once activated, you can't play online without the vendor's server being active right now.
Graphically and audibly, this game is spectacular. I have never seen a flight sim with better craft models, and the sound is exemplary. While I've never taken the stick of a real WWI-era fighter, and likely never will, the aerodynamics seem very realistic (meaning "very hard") to deal with. Just remember... you're basically flying a KITE... fabric stretched over a lightweight wooden frame. Even a small gust of wind will make a big difference in a craft like this.
This is not my "all time favorite" sim... because I've been flying sims for a long time and still prefer "Longbow 2" for combined technical challenge and shear "fun factor." This program is much, much prettier, and also much, much harder. I've really only mastered one plane so far, and even with that, I've been known to auger into the ground on occasion. Its TOUGH. If you only want to "relax and blow off steam," this may not be for you.
But if you enjoy real flight sims, and want to experience the sense of accomplishment which comes from mastering a challenge... this is the best you're going to find, certainly among historical aircraft sims in any case.
Highly recommended, if you're a serious flight-sim fan. If you're just looking to play an arcade game... you'll likely hate it, though.
