5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic That Has Developed, 14 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Falcon 4.0 (Video Game)
I, along with so many others, have been fans of this sim, to the extent that it has become a full blown hobby. Falcon 4 has a superb level of detail in the cockpit and the attention to everything from the skills needed to fly to the superb dynamic campaign (that you won't find better in any other combat flight sim) make this a must have.

It was thought that this sim had had it's day when Falcon 4 Allied Force came along, as it had most of the aspects of Falcon 4.0 but with better graphics and the added Balkans theatre of war as well as the Korean one.

But now, following the release of Benchmark Sims excellent and free revamp of the sim(and I really do mean free with no catches), Falcon 4.0 has been reborn. It is absolutely brilliant with massive improvements in graphics and sound and detail. The community of modders have already added extra theatres to the Korean map, with Israel, Aegean and Balkans open to public use, with others being made too.

The muliplayer experience is superb and I have been involved in events in the last few months when we have had 70 pilots on line in the same campaign, including AWACS and air traffic control.

All you need to use BMS is the orginal Falcon 4.0.

It fully supports Track IR 6DOF and I recommend a decent hotas joystick and throttle set up, such as a Saitek X-52.

This is one for those who want to feel like they are flying an F-16, not just steering it and for those who enjoy planning missions in order to achieve victory.

Go get it!
