The link in the second post above is full of interesting "facts", such as F2's failure to model...hardpoint damage? Inability to shoot down incoming A2A missiles with...A2A missiles? They don't even mention how ZSU-23s fail to engage satellites! Carl from SSI had some remarks about the above site in an old thread, which I urge anyone who is thinking of passing on F2 to read first.

P.S. 'Flanker 2 "The Facts"' is the topic of the thread.

hmmm...
On my page I have some facts as well.
Just wanting to let you know

Go read. I am excited everytime I fly Flanker. Its really good. This BS the above guy is trying to pull is a joke...
Check my review and some screens I took while flying online. Flanker2 is awesome, with some minor issues.... I never had that much flight-sim joy out of the box

Cheers,

I just tried the demo out, and I must say that I plan to buy this sim ASAP. I don't care what people like or don't like, and I don't care if some of you guys nitpick it to death, it's an excellent sim. Nothing's perfect, plain and simple. Reminds me of a good movie, there's always some guy pointing out the unrealistic stuff and the flaws. Just remember it's just a movie (sim), it's not real...

I hope it was clear that what I said in my post was a joke, meant to highlight the silliness of many of the critcisms of F2 on the Flanker 2 'The Facts' site. The sim does have some shortcomings which SSI will most likely address in patches, but it is definitely a must-buy, and I wouldn't regret spending my $44.99 even if there was no further support or enhancement for this product. RanRodee's review hits the nail right on the head, especially regarding flight model, sense of speed, and graphics detail.
