Is there a good combat flight simulator for windows 7?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I played Jane's USAF a long time ago, and I would like to play a flight sim now, but Jane's doesn't run on 7.

Anyone know of any good modern (not il-2) combat flight sims that support 7?

Not sure if it's even a valid suggestion, HAWX was kinda fun, even tho I wouldn't really classify it as a simulator per say.

Not looking for a true to life simulator, just a decent flight/combat game, like Jane's was. I'll look at HAWX

got HAWX, played the first mission, and it's def not what I want tongue.gif but thanks for the suggestion smile.gif I was looking for a bit more realistic simulation, Jane's was for me the perfect blend of realism and accessability. (word)?

It's kinda a thin genre now at days.

ArmA2 is a military combat sim while still remaining arcade/get in and go.
XPlane and FSX are both the deep of the deep, physics, detail and usability but aren't combat orientated.
Battlefield 3 is fun as hell but leans heavily on arcade when flying. Helicopters are a lot of fun though.
Take on Helicopters is from Bohemia who did ArmA2 but goes into detail and focuses on choppers.

That's all I can think of.

I love the ww2 janes combat game . I have looked and have saw nothing that is good. None are right they are more FLYING or so many things added on it's no fun.
I think game maker geeks Forget that We want to be heros!!! I do not want to learn to fly. I don't want to have to watch my red line or oil temp. I want to yank and bank and shoot. I want a easy mode and med mode and a hard mode. I would like a few hard fighting foes who swear at me and are hard to kill not every one! Dang!! put me in for the flight doc I am in combat shock! You ever see the black sheep tv show remember rice ball herachi he was a great foe. He bantered with you and then you shot him down or he shot you down you never know if he was on his game till the rounds started blowing holes in your plane. I remember one time my plane was smoking and the engine was dying and I land on a island and got out of my plane and got shot in janes combat game THATS was GREAT I was thinking ok i am ok then boom, I died.
Any game makers out ther. read the above and get off your butt and get er done!

I want to dress up in my ww2 flying ace jacket and scarf and helmet w/ eye protection what were they called , Dang it on the tip of my finger but I can't remember the name. and step into my chair and log in and take off for a dawn patrol. P-51. Spitfire Mark 5, P-38. Zerro, german 262, fw190, me 109,
and the bar can have blonds and red heads and dancing hoola girls Ok yea I want that game! OH and my flying mates and I have a score board with number of kills and when they get killed they get a line across their name. OK hand me a pill and wheres the jacket I will go with out a fight.
AHHa the days of driving home on friday and getting in a furball at 500ft how close can I go to the ground before one of us dies. Pizza, Coke, and a landline. Flying aces was ok and there was war birds but most of them were not right on. they were ok for a while but got tame when you could kill everything that came up. so the geek gods when the other way!!!! Instead of making the foes human they made the games harder. WRONG!!! get me a foe whos cusses me out calls my mommy bad names and shoots the hell out of my plane and spits on my sisters apple pie.
GET ready fo some blood!! all under $75.00
I will take two for the win!
NO Riceball you can not date my sister! and stop calling me shirley!

I always wanted to get into DCS A-10 but it just looked so daunting. Not being very experienced with pure flight sims I'm afraid I'd never get the hang of it.
