I posted my thoughts about this sim in the WARBIRDS string regarding my comparisons between the WB F4U Corsair and the FIGHTER ACE II F4U Corsair. Anyone can go there to read or I'll save you the trouble - in a nutshell-I didn't like the graphics, FM, color and ballistics of FIGHTER ACE II.

Maybe a solo player demo is not a fair test. But having played AA a lot this just doesnt grab me at all.

AA = Air Attack? Yea, AA is basically Fighter Ace 1.0. It's nothing like FAII - don't even consider using it as a basis of comparison.

Y'know, I remember really hating Microsoft Word after using Word Perfect for years. I regard Word Perfect as my 'first love'. Even now Word is 'just a tool'. My first MMP experience was Fighter Ace and I've tried to fly the 'other two' and was disappointed. So I think I understand what's going on here.

I would like to commend Biff Henderson on his fair representation of what Fighter Ace is becoming. Even though the folks at VR-1 and Microsoft have done a great job, they might have a difficult time tearing some flyers away from their 'first loves'.

Biff has the soul of a good journalist which is another nice surprise. I look forward to reading more from him. Kudos.

AA=Air Attack=Fighter Ace (basically the same, i have played both)
My point if any is that the new version, for what after all is basically arcade flying just doesnt grab U (well me anyway) like the first version.
