I am a little old fashioned in my gaming and actually like CFS2 a lot, its has been out for years but works a treat on Vista (32 bit anyhow) and if you look there are plenty of extras to download for free. But figuring out how to fly everything well takes a lot of trial and error and figuring out some of the mission and campaign stuff has been quite frustrating at times as the help is not very 'helpful'

The book is a revelation, I have the CFS3 book by Sibex (but not CFS3) and it is both useful and well produced, whereas a lot of the Sibex books are, at best, just the same as the game help but in print form. This CFS2 book is similar in style to Sibex CFS3 (ie mostly B&W and in style of the help files) but appears to be a Microsoft publication and is HUGE. Well over 300 pages and much thicker than my other flight sim books and really packed with useful and interesting stuff - a for instance on p180-182 about the Wildcat (my main combat plane right now) it gives you recommended climb speed/rate, fuel consumptions at various throttles and all the landing details you need (including you can set full flaps above 130mph but they wont drop fully until you slow down, despite the sign in the cockpit) as well as suitable combat tactics and all manner of other stuff. There are also 2 big chapters on combat flight tactics and enough info for me to consider building my own missions for a laugh

It has surpassed Sibex CFS3 as my main source of combat flying info. Since CFS2 is surely a classic/retro game of the future I am very happy to have got a copy of the book to go with it. Any relative novice to combat flight simulation will learn plenty of tactical stuff from this (but I guess you might find it on the web these days), even if they havent got CFS2 - but they might want to buy a copy of the game once they have the book

Shootum up! 3 Jan. 2007
By Jerry M. Skaggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is my favorite Combat Flight Sim. Considering the graphics technology when this sim was introduced, it is excellent. Scenery is accurate. Aircraft are a little "fuzzy"looking. The ships and carriers need to look more realistic. Combat is fun. In the manual, advice on how to handle dogfights is given by fighter Ace Joe Foss and a few Japenese pilots of the time. Flying this sim enticed me to read Greg "Pappy" Boyingtons book, THE BLACK SHEEP. Carrier landings are challenging. It's a good sim, buy it.

Excellent reference for this game 8 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Good graphics and concise writing are key to the quality of this book. The author's knowledge of flying and aerodynamics is obvious. He knows how to teach; his explanations are smart and clear. Excellent reference for anyone who wants to maximize their use of this game.

Excellent Game With Great Graphics 17 Mar. 2011
By Jeff Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Of all the Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator Games, this one is my favorite. The graphics are very nice and the variety of aircraft is good as well. I'd highly recommend someone buying this game have a good graphics card and plenty of RAM on hand as it will take it all for you to fully enjoy the game. On my old Dell computer running XP with 512 MB of RAM, the game wouldn't load due to the lack of RAM. Some of the missions can be really challenging, so get ready. If your computer's up to snuff, you'll like this game.
Book-Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2 wwII Pacific Theater 6 Mar. 2010
By Loren M. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is an excelent step-by-step overview of the flight simulator software. It provides a great deal of information on the individual aircraft, their performance and limitations and offers suggestions on how best to use their advantages in combat. There is a section that provide the user with the rules that the "Enemy" aircraft fly by under computer software control. It's like looking into the mind of the opponent that you are flying against. The book I purchased was used and in good condition. I found many passages highlighted and was surprised at how often I thought to myself that those sections were exactly the ones I would have marked.

The index is quite good and helps you find information quickly.

The one shortcoming with the book is in the graphics or screen shots. They are not as clear as one would like and in many cases, you can not see the details that the author is trying to point out. I expect that this is a limitation of the size of the graphic and the printing process. Regardless, the text is understandable enough to guide you through the steps that will lead you to a solution. The graphics displayed when the software is run are exceptionally clear and crisp so you can bounce back and forth between the book and the software and see exactly what the author was trying to explain.

I found the book to be a great reference guide to the software. The used condition of the book in no way decreased its value to me.
