Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Combat Flight Simulator 2 is a historic flight sim fan's dream come true. Excellent graphics, great sound effects and adjustable realism settings make CFS2 a thrilling and accessible sortie into the unfriendly skies of the South Pacific during World War II.

After choosing to fly for the Japanese or American forces you can pick from a selection of seven ultra-realistic aircraft.

There are over 100 missions to fly, many based on historic missions from the war. This unusual level of realism and attention to detail comes from the game developers' personal love of flight: many members of the CFS2 team are pilots. The missions themselves are lengthy and often complex, and are just as accurate as the planes; players take part in history, but cannot change the outcomes of battles.

Graphics are very sharp and detailed. However, for optimum performance be aware that you will need a blazing fast machine with a fast video card.

The between-mission story arc is told through 1940s-style comic book panels. This successfully moves the story along while maintaining the feeling that the characters are aware that they are never far from instant death.

While the game does include such famous planes as the US Corsair, Wildcat, P38F Lightning and Japanese Zero its total of merely seven craft left us wanting more, even with the vastly different handling of each plane--an impressive feature.

This, however, is a relatively small shortcoming in an otherwise deep and involving game. If you have a powerful enough PC Combat Flight Simulator 2 is a delight, and is sure to please both war historians and flight sim enthusiasts. --Mark Brooks

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent game 11 Mar 2002
Having never owned a Flight Simulator before i didnt really know what to expect from this game. But what i got has had me hooked ever since i bought it. The graphics are superb and the game play magnificant. Sure there are annoyences, like when you have just come back from a dogfight, downed 3 fighters and a bomber. Been riddled with bullets your engine is just about to pack in and your guns arent working. You approche the runway, are just about to touch down, when one of your wingmen, whom you have kept alive all through the mission just so you can have his expertise on the next "hop", ploughs straight into the back of you!! But dont get me wrong this only happens occasionly and you can put it down to one of the incoviniances of war. The online play is brillient. Pitting your skills against other humans over the world wide web is great fun, and highly addictive. The training missions are very good, and supply you with all the basic skills you will need to know to get started. Also the quick combat mode offers hours of practice and fun. I dont regret buying this game at all, and if you are like me a first time buyer this is deffinatly the game to start you off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Combat flight Sim 2 10 Jan 2001
As an avid user of CFS1 I looked forward to the launch of CFS2
As previously stated the excellent graphics, which are true to life, can become boring because all there is to see are the pacific islands. But this is where the realism kicks in.
Life was like that in the latter stages of WW2
If you prefer the european battle ground terrain you can import CFS1 scenery but why should you want to when the in-built mission builder allows you to simply create the mission of your choice ,totally self created..
I have never witnessed such a better combat flight sim
This is a world beater if only for the realistic sound effects
Well done MS

4.0 out of 5 stars Not at all bad 22 Jan 2001
By A Customer
The scenery really is very realistic, and has hundreds of possible missions complete with medals, commendations, letters of condolence etc. It can be difficult to learn your way into initially, as I was test-flying the Microsoft Sidewinder FF 2 joystick at the same time (highly recommended for this, by the way). I had no experience with US or Japanese planes of this period, and found them quite challenging to begin with. The options for flying different planes are fun, and trying to take off from a carrier with a fully-laden Lightning just illustratates some of the problems they may have faced!

Open architechture design, the ability to import aircraft and design missions along with the realistic flight emulation all make this a truely brilliant flight simulator. The MSFlight sim engine together with guns make this a fantastic experience for the flight sim fan. For once MS seem to have got it right! Amazing

4.0 out of 5 stars well out of date 12 Aug 2010
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this fo the second time because I fancied a flight sim game. I had it a few years ago and enjoyed it for the most part, good missions, pretty good story-line. Unfortunately it doesn't work on my current computer - still XP but a quad intel with GT9600 graphics seems to be too much for this little game. Make sure it's compatible before you buy. But a good game when it works.
